THI420: John Ondrasik of Five For Fighting, Dennis Bernstein

After the week the Kings just had, going 3-1 and obtaining Dustin Penner, Jesse and I are brimming with excitement. And the episode is a reflection of that, as it's overflowing with hockey goodness.

Dennis BernsteinFirst up, we are joined by Dennis Bernstein from The Fourth Period website. Dennis helps us breaks down the trading deadline and the lack of moves around the league. We also take a closer look at the newest King, Penner.

We also discuss whether he was the real target of Kings' general manager Dean Lombardi rather than Ales Hemsky. It's always great when Dennis carves out some time for us, and he doesn't disappoint this week. (He never disappoints, actually.) A small sidenote, I accidentally left in a blooper, where we lost Dennis for a second. Don't worry, it's not your player, it's me.

John OndrasikThen, we have a special treat: a second guest in the form of John Ondrasik. You know John, he's also known as Five For Fighting, and was the guy who yelled out "Go Kings" at the Heritage Classic between the Flames and Canadiens. John is an avid Kings fan, and we talk for several minutes about his respect and love for hockey.

He knows about his Kings hockey. He talks about where the team is at in his opinion and what it means to enjoy the team now that Dean Lombardi's vision is finally coming into focus. We also talk a bit about his charity work, including his website:, which sends free music to our military overseas. John is a fascinating person, and we could've talked for an hour with him. We're very fortunate John gave us a great interview, so we hope you enjoy it.

We also crown a King of the Week, bid adieu to Marco Sturm and the usual stuff. It's a podcast chock full of exclusive interviews that you can only get in one place.
