Jeff is great at what he does, and overall it’s a good show, but I wish I saw the benefit of splitting each hour into a separate episode everyday, it’s not a dealbreaker, just rather annoying.

Jeff Marek is one of the best in the business when it comes to hockey broadcasting. His hockey knowledge is expansive and he’s a great storyteller. However, there are some format issues I have with the podcast. First and foremost, I can’t understand why they split the podcast into two sections...Read full review »

Wow, so nice to be more centred around NHL and not the Leafs… Love Jeff but I miss JB & Stewie with him. Podcasts with 1 host just aren’t my preference. Audio volume needs to be turned up on Jeff’s mic. Seems like he whispers in the mic a lot and make it really hard to hear. Jeff’s volume...Read full review »

Jeff marek is a hard person to listen to,
Brennanbleile via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/27/21
Sounds like he’s made for a wrestling broadcasting career. Just doesn’t seem to fit the hockey reporter vibe. Not my cup of tea

Is Jeff Marek on again? Or still. Hard to tell, he’s omnipresent. Good thing, too. Knows his stuff and always fun. But get ready to google some deep cuts.

I love anything with Jeff. There seems to be instances where the same audio is repeated. Today a totally different show was posted and it wasn’t this one. A little more attention to detail on that front would make an enormous difference.

Love Jeff. He was my favorite part of Hockey Central but I didn’t want it to be JUST him and guests. Justin, Anthony, David and Nick all brought great personalities to the show and I miss all their collective debates and feedback. It was the best part. On top of that, the audio for the Jeff Marek...Read full review »

The only good parts are when Elliotte comes on. It is a significant decline from what hockey central at noon was. That show was actually good. This one is a pretty tough listen
steveyYz19 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/20/21
Why do you not just put the entire show on as 1 podcast?
KenBroadhead via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/08/21
Congratulations on the new show name Mr. Marek, well earned!
HotSweatyNutz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/05/21
Just stick to 32 though, you’re just discussing the same topics you did discuss on 32. What’s the purpose of this one? Just bring your guest on 32. No?
LesHabitants via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/04/21
Great show. Looking forward to it resuming soon

U.S. listener that enjoys the knowledgeable and conversational discussions on this show. Great guests, great stories, great analysis. These guys know their stuff for the most part.
JAKPA2021 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/01/21
The hosts need to keep their social justice and political views to themselves. They are not experts in political science, social justice, race relations, economic systems, etc. They are experts on hockey. So the more time spent discussing hockey, the more I enjoy!
Ben Wand via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/21/21
Name of the podcast is misleading. This is a Leafs centered podcast. Never has so much time and words been spent on an organization that has achieved so little. The Leafs are not Canada’s team and their history pales in comparison to the Canadiens
Bboys2 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/09/21
You have a good old fashioned hockey talk style. It feels like I am listening to a bunch of guys in a bar talking hockey. The discussion on face offs was simple but informative. You mentioned on one podcast that the refs probably talked to both teams to tone down the after whistle pushing and...Read full review »

Can’t believe that Marek actually said that he is not teaching his kids to act around the net like Jake Evans. I’m done.
marchabs via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/03/21
Unless they’re actually going to talk about ALL the NHL teams, they need to change the name to Leafs Talk at Noon. This show exists in a Toronto vacuum. I get they’re in Ontario but there are more teams than just the Leafs. Title of podcast is misleading.
Boho28 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/14/21
This is the best hockey podcast out there! How do you change you name, because I hate the canucks! My friend named me this.
CaNuCkS4053 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/05/21
Bad
kakifagyi via Apple Podcasts · Hungary · 05/04/21
They defend Tom Wilson on this podcast after what he did to both Buchnevich and Panarin. Really not a stance I want to support by listening and you should not either. Stuff like that do not belong in the game and do not deserve ”respect”. Unproffessional :(
Max-Leonard via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 05/04/21
Anthony Stewart is a moron. He makes it impossible to enjoy this show.
Smittytwostep via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/04/21
Marek is terrible host who tries to put answers in the guests’ mouth by crafting ridiculously long questions forcing them to acknowledge his hipster beliefs. Stewie always talking about “in my day when I was a 4th line plug on terrible teams”. Bourne likeable but who cares. Bad hosts bad show....Read full review »

Love this podcast. Great cast - truly do like all the members. One issue though - can someone tell stewie to take a deep breath and let the question be fully asked before he answers? How much longer is marek going to talk about the games played stat after Marleau broke Howe’s record? Someone...Read full review »
catskillspuck via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/24/21
I don’t find Anthony Stewart has much to offer on the show. It would be nice if they covered the league more not just how great the Leafs are.
RiderHabFan via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/23/21
Hockey Central nothing but a leafs show, especially on trade day. Should really be called leafs central Let’s bring the whole nhl into this show. Might be time to stick with Tim and friends
Rock_Prawn via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/12/21
Guys... enough!! Spitting Chiclets, Puck Soup, ESPN... all hockey podcasts that talk ALL hockey. Just being based in Ontario doesn’t mean Canada has one team. Change the name of the show.
So much hype via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/31/21
You’d think the country’s largest media market would have the very best talent covering its beloved national game. Instead, we have the big two networks featuring some of the least likeable hosts, and pundits, in the industry. On one, you have a complete homer starring alongside B-level talent....Read full review »
Tim with one m via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/30/21
Could be a great show. Most of the panel is great, and they know their stuff, but this is a leafs show, not a hockey show. There is no problem with being a leafs show, just be honest about it, don’t alienate the audience. Justin Bourne’s bias is soooo intense, even more so than the rest of the...Read full review »

The Real Kyper at Noon puts Hockey Central to shame. I never realized how bad this show is till now.
[email protected] via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/13/21
They should change the name of this podcast to Leafs Talk.
Turnbone via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/05/21
This use to be a great show that you had to listen to everyday. Now its all about the leafs or canadian teams despite being called HOCKEY CENTRAL. Real kyper at noon is much better and gives you what this show doesnt.
heoanzb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/21
I listen to this all the time but it’s frustrating. I love Leaf talk but sometimes the fixation gets a little much - you always know what’s coming. The real issue for me is the constant sportsnet self-promotion, which you see on 31 thoughts too. This show was great a few years ago.
dewy24 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/23/21
Have listened to the show/podcast since it’s beginnings with Kyp, Millard, and MacLean. Definitely gone downhill as it’s clear Sportsnet Execs wanted to change it into a Leafs-centric show rather than a hockey-centric show. Sad as it’s at the point where I skip the first 20-30 minutes as I’m...Read full review »
MikeAndrewL via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/16/21
Been listening for years. Really liked the interaction of David , Stew, and Burkie! Now that he’s gone the show has lost me. Just too much of Jeff speaking about things only he is interested in, Winston Churchill quotes, equalization cheques going to the Leafs, from Columbus, and all sorts of...Read full review »

Great guys, try hard. Toronto based show so they’re gonna shove the Leafs down your throat. They use to discuss more teams around the NHL more regularly, wish it was a little more variety and we heard guests and opinions from around the league
milehigherfan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/02/21
Love listening to Burkie and Marek. Anthony Stewart on the other hand sounds like an unprepared and uneducated child when asked to give insight. Some of his takes are absolutely cringe worthy; please replace him
BobbyP2424 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/01/21
Great hockey show. I love listening to it. Great hosts, great guests. Informative, funny, insightful with great discussions of so many different aspects of hockey. One of my favorites!
The Rat Wife via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/16/21
Oh stop complaining. This isn’t golf. Cross checking in front of the net is normal. Go play tennis. Stop complaining and let it go. Bring back the goons
bending james via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/15/21
Someone should get Burke an asthma inhaler. His breathing is so annoying to listen to
gavimac via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/14/21
Great hockey show but should really be called “Leafs Central” not hockey central...
RobbieMulcss via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/04/21
Friedman and Burke 10/10 Looked forward to hearing about the Devils Rangers matchup just for Stew to end the convo with a bad joke because he wanted to talk central and dead rivalries. But love when he doesn’t give too much credit to teams like the others. I wouldn’t ask players what they’d...Read full review »
