Great show (but please stop the “redrafts”)!

Jeff is a great host! The show is very informative and has great guests.
Elliot is insightful, but rude! Not sure why he can’t stop eating or turn his ringer/keyboard sound off when on air.
Also, I could do without the ridiculous “redrafts”... time travel is not real, so please stop with the hypotheticals!

Thanks! LET’S GO BLUES!!

One of the Best

Jeff Marek is truly one of the best - his style, knowledge, and ability to host an interview are stellar. This is on shine in this podcast, and he’s showing why he’s one of the best.

To address some other reviews:
- leafs talk: I’m not a leafs fan, but I get why there’s a lot of leafs. The descriptions on the episodes are pretty good, so I’ll skip some of the leaf centric episodes, but the insight in those episodes is good anyway, so sometimes it’s worth listening. They’re one of the biggest markets in hockey, and a majority of the folks tuning in for this show are doing so for the leafs. It’s like tuning into a hockey podcast, then rating it poorly because there’s too much hockey talk…

- breaking episodes up: I may be in the minority here, but I love it. It helps me skip some parts that are maybe less interesting on a given day. I don’t get why you would rate this lower for it.

- Elliot: yeah this one gets me, he’s golfing, he’s eating, he’s got his phone pings on, but it’s also not THAT annoying…

TL;DR: Marek is a radio and hockey god, listen to episodes that are interesting to you, and you’ll love it
