Great show

The hosts are great, the segments are great and Granger things is great if you like to bet like I do.

A little narrow

This podcast should/could be a lot better. I like everyone on it but they don’t talk about the NHL all that much. There’s a real need for a podcast that talks about what’s happening in the whole league and I kind of expected this to do that. Instead there’s a lot of “who is your favorite blah blah?” type questions. Maybe get some people from outside of Ontario too? If you have people who work on all of these different teams it would be great to her from them.

Love the variety

Hailey and Sean are fantastic and getting to hear from them weekly has been a welcome addition to my hockey podcast rotation. Ian is an affable, if a bit eager, host who balances and encourages the other two.
