My favorite hockey podcast

The most substantive, intelligent hockey podcast out there. And they don’t waste time with nonsense like discussions about e.g., movies and TV.

The PDOcast is extraordinarily unique

Dimitri has been doing this for several seasons, the proof is on any podcast app you can find, but I have been listening for the better part of 5 seasons and interacting with Dimitri on Twitter for at least 3-4 years. Dimitri is nothing short of a delight. He’s extremely intelligent, witty, charismatic, and has a lot of very smart and funny friends he brings on the podcast to make you laugh, make you think, and make you a smarter hockey fan. That list includes Cam Robinson, Jack Fraser, Thomas Drance, Andrew Berkshire, Emily Kaplan & Greg Wyshynski, Steve “Dangle” Glynn, Sara Civian, Ryan Clark, and a plethora of others, who are first time guests or recurring guests. You will come away from every episode smarter than you were before you listened to this episode. If you love hockey, this podcast must be a staple in your rotation.
