If you're a hockey fan in LA, you may feel your sport gets short shrift. It's hard: the Kings take the better part of a season to score 81 points, and Kobe can do that in a single night. Yet there are determined hockey fans here, and one of them has the weekly SoCal Hockey Cast, podcasting about local favorites and hockey beyond LA. We're hockey novices, but we like this podcast: it's conversational and engaged and we could kind of figure out what it was talking about. And while we're usually a bit wary of podcasts that include precocious children, we absolutely loved Genevieve (maybe 5 years old) saying "The Kings had a pitiful week."

Good production quality, plenty of expertise and providing a much-needed public service to struggling local hockey fans made us pick SoCal Hockey Cast as our very first Podcast of the Week. That and the merciless little girl.
