Worth a Listen: The Empty Netters Hockey Podcast

The podcast world is absolutely saturated with hockey podcasts, which is great for hockey fans.

We have several of our own that we proudly produce. We love the podcasts that we have and love the kind of content that they bring to listeners on a daily basis.

There is one hockey podcast that is not ours that deserves attention, and that is Almost Friday Media’s Empty Netters. The hosts of the podcasts, Chris and Dan Powers, are brothers who are former hockey players and are huge fanatics of the game.

There are several reasons why this podcast should be a must-listen for all hockey fans. For starters, they love the game.

Chris and Dan’s love of hockey shine through on every show they do. They speak about the game with such enthusiasm that one cannot help but feel the same way about the sport that they do while listening to the podcast.

Secondly, they get great guests to appear on their show. They have had hockey players/personalities such as P.K. SubbanJonny Lazarus of the NHL and The Hockey NewsPete Blackburn of Bally Sports, Tyler ToffoliBobby RyanCharlie McAvoyChris Nelson, and others hop on their show.   

The show is done in a laid-back manner, so guests are able to be comfortable and open with Chris and Dant on any hockey-related or non-hockey-related topic. Both Chris and Dan are very engaging on their show, and because of that, their guests are able to have relatable conversations with them.

Chris and Dan are also extremely funny. The Almost Friday Media brand is comedy-driven, and the brothers do such a great job of fitting in with that motto as they not only get themselves to laugh on their show, but also their guests and, more than likely, their listeners.

Another great thing about Empty Netters is their Instagram account. They post great content on it every single day that keeps their fans engaged with not only their show but with hockey as a whole.

Again, there are a lot of hockey podcasts out there that are worth listening to. With that said, Empty Netters is one that is more than worth investing your time in and is a new hockey brand that I believe has the potential to be a force in the hockey world.
