Tell it like it is

Every podcast I found that was Preds related always pushed the idea that “everything is great and our team is always awesome!” and that, as a dedicated fan, is exhausting…
Having an educated commentary that tells you what’s really happening and what you should actually expect out of the team is a breath of fresh air. Not only does it paint a clearer picture; it validates frustrations and makes the moments of actual positivity rewarding.
Would recommend this for any Predators fan that is looking for a genuine, unbiased insight into this team.

Fun, informative Preds podcast

Co-hosts Braden Gall and Adam Vingan bring listeners a structured weekly discussion on all things Nashville Predators in a still-conversational and fluid format that never disappoints. Moreover, the duo is almost always willing to engage on social media, bringing an interactive aspect to the experience, which is rare in the podcast world. Subscribe if you want to learn more about the Nashville Predators—especially if think you already know it all.

Whatever Vingan does, he should never lose the “voice.”
