New York Islanders: Eyes on Isles Podcast Episode 1 Preview

Eyes on Isles will be recording its first podcast discussing all things New York Islanders. Be on the lookout for it tomorrow morning.

It’s summertime and rather quiet in hockey land but that doesn’t slow Eyes on Isles down. The premiere episode of our new podcast is coming out tomorrow morning and you can expect all things New York Islanders to be talked about.

The show will be hosted by Mitch Anderson and myself, Matt O’Leary. We’ll hit on some topics discussed on the website this week, one main story and then some trending social media discussion.

We’re really excited to get started on this, as it’s something we’ve wanted to do for a while now. To break the fourth wall for a minute, Mitch hosts and produces a podcast of his own aside from his work at Eyes on Isles and I manage a college radio station. So we both have audio experience and hope to use that experience to put together a great product for you, the listener.
