Episode 37: The Reckoning

Yeesh. Is it over yet?

You know it’s a bad sign when it takes a full week to recover from the end of the season and record a podcast… and then it takes over a month to finally put that podcast online! All apologies, but that Game 81 loss kind of crushed our spirits for a while there.

In this triple-length episode, Keith and Sean take stock of the 2014-15 LA Kings season. Sean attempts to talk Keith down off the ledge as they discuss the significance of the Kings missing the playoffs (just after winning the Cup!), and what this means for the current legacy. They give the entire season a three-period breakdown–including a patented Keith “theory of brilliance.” They also look ahead, briefly cheering themselves up thinking about the draft (and fantasizing about landing the number 1 pick), before agonizing over what to do with Mike Richards and free agents in the off-season.

But for just a little while longer, we are still the Stanley Cup Champions!

Episode 34 3/3: Postgame Stadium Series with Sean + Robin & Matt

Super Three-Part Episode!

PART THREE: Robin joins Sean and Keith celebrate the 1-0 Kings victory over the Sharks in the outdoor game the day after. They give their patented three-period game breakdown, compare the festivities of the two California Stadium Series games, and delve into the EPIX coverage.

Then Matt returns for an encore. They avoid any legal discussion this time to delve into the highlight of the night–the Melissa Etheridge performance. They chat a bit about the hockey that took place as well, and Matt provides a stunning prediction for the Kings moving forward.

Episode 30: Midseason Review

So this is the new year?

Kings are struggling to find consistency, they sit in the middle of the standings just barely in a playoff spot, trade rumors are swirling–feels like we’ve been here before. Thus Sean and Keith are not losing heart, though they are happy to play armchair GM and offer their solutions to improve the team. They also take a look around the league at this halfway point and take solace in the suffering of other teams, suggest their award front runners, and make some predictions.

It’s been a while, so enjoy an extended episode.

Episode 29: BONUS HOLIDAY SPECIAL

Happy holidays!

What better way to celebrate the 2014 holiday season than by taking a vacation! That’s right, the Kings of Kings have been on an extended break for about a month now, but we’ve returned to bring you a holiday special.

On December 16, Keith and Sean recorded a whole podcast while watching (nearly) the entirety of the Blues-Kings game. Sync up the game if you can and enjoy this as something like a Director’s Commentary track to the game, or simply consume it as several weeks worth of podcasts rolled into one.

Episode 27: Move-on-vember

Whoah-oh here they come! Picking up steam and catching up fast.

Sean and Keith are back, providing their winning 3-period recap on the Panthers-Kings game, touching on the prior week’s games, and getting in to the bizarre Penguins-Rangers finish.

And find out the reason why Sean goes on record saying: “That, to me, warmed my heart to the Ducks”

Plus: surprise guest at the end! And sound quality will be better next time, apologies.

Episode 26: Let’s Get Silly

Still behind, but slowly picking up steam. Just like the Kings?

Sean and Keith discuss Kings defensemen who aren’t right-handed, they recap the Canucks blowout, and Sean proffers his own theory of brilliance (which Keith of course disputes).

They wrap up with a discussion that they can both agree on–the scourge of impending jersey advertisements.

Episode 24: Quick to Shutout

Second half of Keith, Sean, and Robin’s chat takes a much lighter tone.

They delve into Jonathan Quick doing this 2012 thing, favorite pairings, and Robin puts Keith and Sean’s enthusiasm in check about That 70s Line.

Keith answers Sean’s Most Important Question of the Season, to which Sean replies: “I don’t think we have ever agreed on something as hardcore as we agree on this.”
