Nerdist Industries

Hi, we’re Greg Wyshynski of Yahoo Sports’ Puck Daddy blog and Dave Lozo of Vice Sports. 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. Either way, enjoy this Nerdist Sports podcast!
