Fantastic

Thanks so much to Braden and Adam for giving us such honest and objective coverage of Nashville’s Hockey team. This podcast is my guilty pleasure and while I’m (very) sorry to see Adam go I’m looking forward to seeing what this podcast looks like next year. (Govertime??).
Best of Luck Adam! I cancelled my Athletic subscription in solidarity!

No homer takes

It’s nice to have something to listen to regarding the Preds without the insane homer takes we get from local radio who also broadcast the games. They fail to be critical because of the business relationship between the two. Vingan used to annoy me but he has really matured in his coverage over the last few years and I miss Braden Gall on the radio in the mornings. Nice work guys.

Better quality than Nashville's afternoon radio!!

The content cannot be beat. The conversation cannot be beat. The personality cannot be beat. Braden hosts such a great show and Adam is a perfect compliment to him. An absolute must-listen for Preds fans.
