I enjoy the content of all the podcasts and all the hosts have a great knowledge of the game. However, Hailey Salvian desperately needs to take some voice lessons. It’s nothing that can’t be easily fixed but at times it’s nails on a chalkboard. Audio is important for podcast quality and if...Read full review »

Don’t can’t McDavid out guys. That assist was the game winner - didn’t matter right

Idk why the girl’s (sorry idk her name) mic was loud, and everyone else is quiet, its very annoying…. Everyone should have close to the same volume, and limits on how loud it can get… tough to listen to cause of this technical issue, I’m sorry 🤷‍♂️

This show is good half the time and the other half of the time it's unlistenable as Haley and Sean sound like they've taken some bong hits and are sitting on a couch stoned randomly talking about hockey.Read full review »

The reporting is good, but the vocal fry is too much for me to handle. Honestly, enough. Please realize that speaking like that is not at all professional and is actually immature and irritating.

We all know Ontario may have more writers. But too many portray themselves NHL reporters and that is inaccurate. I unsubscribed to the athletic for this reason (my local team is hardly covered and the coverage is a farce) and it’s unfortunate that in the pod format that the leaf bias is also so...Read full review »

Here we go again. Instead of addressing how the NHL salary cap is a scam and ripe for violation, these narcissistic journalists look at it from the standpoint of how Vegas makes the deadline exciting, instead of pointing out the abuse of the LTIR.

Ian Mendes is insufferable. Every time I try to give this podcast another chance, I’m forced to pretend that guy is clever and witty. He would be more successful covering a Who’s Who of This Week’s TicToc show.

Five stars because DGB told me to do this. I enjoy these guys very much in all their pods. Keep it up fellas.

Where’s the 6 star rating?? As far as your Feb 28th call out for a show name: “At Least We’re Not Lozo”

Been listening for years. I’ve liked it the while time. Can’t believe some of the comments. This is a great hockey show and a go to, I get excited every time an episode drop. Athletic has built an amazing team here and only problem is so many great hosts, how do they get them all air time. Miss...Read full review »

The chaos of the Thursday episodes cannot be understated and should not be underrated. Absolutely can’t get enough of that trio. The new Wednesday show is awesome too- always need too many Seans.

I’m a Habs fan, and I am happy that Down Goes Brown is back. Sean, I enjoyed your book, thanks for writing it. Paul in Montreal

Corey and Max are fantastic, the rest really aren’t great. DGB is always entertaining and should be on more. Ian has charisma but lacks conviction of opinion and chemistry with any of the cohosts. Hailey is good for women’s hockey but meh for everything else, and the combo of her and Sean (who is...Read full review »

In previous years the daily programming was good as it was something new daily with different people and I liked that. Now it is the same rudderless M thru W show where Julian McKenzie can’t stop saying “Like” and “I mean” 40+ times a show, a Thursday throw away show and the prospect show that I...Read full review »

The wannabe NBA stuff is getting really old. I get that the NBA is a sponsor of the Athletic who you want to keep sweet but does it have to be so obvious ? hockey journalists seem to have a massive inferiority complex about the NBA. Practically Every episode of this podcast now seems to want more...Read full review »

Overall a good show. Miss the variety of previous years. Now it’s a prospect day and Canada coverage unless the Canada coverage somehow involves a US team.
BertWeiser via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/06/24
Literally, everyone on the show is great, except for Julian. I cannot stand hearing his takes for one more second. If I hear him in the intro of the show, I Feel my stomach drop. I think going forward I might just start to skip the episodes when I hear him.
Pavmatt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/05/23
An overall good show, keeping consistent content that’s informative and fun to listen to.
Slingerman Jones via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/23
This pod cast is supposed to get me to subscribe to the athletic? Really?
Iananthonykant via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/30/23
Still enjoy some of the current hosts and content but it’s no longer appointment listening for me like Tues and Thurs used to be. Old lineup 5 stars. Current lineup 3.5 stars?
Disgruntled ADT customer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/15/23
Really love this pod. Miss the Tuesday Boyzzz.
AnonymousCropDuster via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/06/23
Used to enjoy the majority of the daily shows. Then one host insulted the listeners of another hockey podcast. Then they did away with the Tuesday shows this season. (23-24) Only reason it's 2 stars instead of 1 is because of the prospect episodes.Read full review »

But I do miss the Tuesday Boyzzz.
The bandersnatchers via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/03/23
I would love to see a more day by day, game by game review or at least touch up on the games and bigger moments. Also I’m a new listener but I think Shayna was my favorite one to listen to so far. Don’t know if she’s a guest or a regular but she should be the latter.
Tntinthree via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/03/23
This show made a wrong turn when they made Ian and Julian the hosts every day. Every other host was better by leaps and bounds, and I often found myself skipping the Monday show simply because of the hosts. I will be unsubscribing for now but will check back in throughout the season to see if...Read full review »
Braden Hockey via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/01/23
Two shows hosted by Ian and Julian with DGB reduced to being a guest? Not a good idea. What is a good idea is putting the kids together (Sean Hailey Max) so I can just skip that one completely.
Mister weny via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/12/23
Getting rid of Wednesday guys is a bad move. Could barely stand Julian one day a week and now we get him twice. Terrible . If you played drinking game where you took a shot for every time he said “like”, you’d be hammered 5 minutes into every pod.

Julian is worse than the former monday co-hosts, way worse. like really really the worst. max and corey have the only consistently interesting content or anything informative. sean and sean are both good.
proop8 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/03/23
Sorry to hear the round table show is gone. It was one of my favourites. Excellent host plus Granger and Russo.
Mike Holman via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/29/23
Some decent banter, discussion and intelligent hockey talk. McKenzie is brutal though.
Dubs161 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/27/23
Am I missing something? This is still professional sports right? No matter what the score is there are still players on both rosters trying to win spots. If you want to say the pre season is too long I agree w that but no mercy rule ever in pro sports
Goon Squad Captain via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/26/23
There are some good folks on here that offer insight and discuss interesting subjects but too many of the athletic staff take it as a joke and they come off as a joke. It can be worse than bro radio. Half of the time I only hear giggles.
gunder1024 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/10/23
They claim to be a hockey show, yet they refuse to consider The Mighty Ducks’ theme song on their cartoon theme song bracket. Hacks and frauds!

If you’re familiar with The Athletic (which I am as a paying subscriber), you know that all of these people are super talented! But the inconsistency between hosts in terms of style makes every episode really different. I would check out a few before passing judgement, and remember who you do...Read full review »

Easily the worst hockey pod.
Lando1228 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/05/23
So much idle and just plain dull chit-chat between the hosts. Takes a solid 10 minutes to get into any serious topics, and even then it still seems so amateurish. I have tried this show multiple times and just can’t sit through it. The Athletic needs to hire a real producer who can whip this into...Read full review »

Weak show with weak hosts, with the exception of Sean McIndoe. The broad on the show has more balls than the guys. But that dame is relatively weak too. A show by and for Millennial Puke Soy Boys.
Badger Rock via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/22/23
I listened to parts of 3 shows on my 50 minute drive home. All they seem to do is complain and make negative comments about every team. If you hate NHL teams that much, maybe don’t have a show about it. Also, just because you can use foul language doesn’t mean you should. People listen in the car...Read full review »
StevenM2230 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/13/23
I’m 17 minutes into the draft episode, and most of what I’ve heard is about the injustice of Chicago having a 1st, and how the “plutocrats” win in the end. If you want to make that point, go ahead. But, after that, move on to another topic. I don’t want to listen to you complain about the same...Read full review »

Ian Mendes is awesome!! Only listen to him and Sean McIndoe (eventhough he is a leaf fan), the 2 of them know so much history and their analysis is the best in the business!
K or Nay via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/10/23
I enjoy Corey's interviews and professionalism. Otherwise, I would rather hear from the average fan at the bar about what they think about hockey. Sean Gentille is a self-important tool. Unsubscribed.Read full review »

His vibe is corny and not conducive to being taken seriously. Please can we have less of him in general?
Ryan Paul Downey via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/27/23
Some shows have guests and topics that are interesting but they are in the minority. They focus on original six teams. All others are covered in passing or half heartedly. Latest episode is how boring hockey is right now after trade deadline. Guess they don’t realize there are wild card...Read full review »
