Great but some changes needed

Jake- just read the script in a normal conversational voice. The drawn out, arena type announcements are absolutely brutal, bud.

Otherwise great discussions

Ron Duguay...act your age

Podcast has a lot of potential. Duguay needs to stop telling his 1978 disco club stories. Sounds juvenile. Stop flirting with Mollie. It is creepy as she is literally 40 years younger than you.

Beyond that it is not bad. Mollie is good. She knows her stuff. Probably needs to control the giggling a little bit. The “host” is a non entity. Serves absolutely no purpose beyond his really dumb introductions. Larry Brooks is hot and cold. Duguay is fine when he sticks to hockey. Unfortunately he does not stick to hockey

Mollie’s reporting is great

Really enjoy her reporting and analysis on all the different channels where she offers it. Including on this podcast.
