Description

We’re Greg Wyshynski of ESPN, Sean "Down Goes Brown" McIndoe of The Athletic and Ryan Lambert of Yahoo Sports and this is a hockey podcast, in the sense that we talk about hockey, both on the ice and about fan culture. That’s the “puck.” This is also a podcast about movies, TV, fast food, life lessons and general idiocy. That’s the “soup.” Unless you ordered the minestrone.

as an italian, listening to three cakers rate pasta was painful. "red sauce", "powder cheese" ... horrible. "Sunday gravy" was missing for the Jersey trifecta

Wow, is Josh Ho-Sang the new Nino Niederreiter? (Drafted by the Isles, never really pans out for them, gets traded and succeeds) Love to listen to you guys' podcast every week!
