Good listen

If you are interested in the Kings, these guys are as in tune as anybody to what’s going on with the team. Definitely worth listening to this podcast. Look forward to it twice weekly as a great companion while I walk. Scott Moak and Gary Gerald cuts in the opening will get you excited for great King’s talk.

One of the best Kings pods out there

James has been following the team forever and knows his stuff. One of the pods I must listen to every time there’s a new episode.

Very informative

This podcast gives a great in-depth look at the Kings. James does a fabulous job of breaking down the games and the moves the Kings make. I’ve really enjoyed the past few episodes with Brendan. Hearing the insights from the young reporter has been very interesting and I wouldn’t mind seeing him stay on permanently.
