Eric explains how he went from a new fan of ECHL hockey to "Thunder Man". He shares with us how with a little inspiration from other fans and the help of his wife, they came up with what would eventually become his signature look.

As a self-appointed hype man for the Stockton Thunder, Eric cheers and hypes the crowd to keep fans involved and in the game.  

Although he is not associated or employed by the Stockton Thunder organization, he is a true "Super Fan" and he enjoys being a part of the fun and action that goes on at the arena.

76. Caleb Lamb and Brandon Kisker, Stockton Thunder - December 9, 2013

Let's Play Hockey!

In this week's episode, the Podcast Stockton Crew have an action-packed interview with the Stockton Thunder broadcasters, Caleb Lamb and Brandon Kisker.

Caleb Lamb and Brandon Kisker

Stockton Thunder Broadcasters, Caleb Lamb and Brandon Kisker come on the show to talk about their careers in sports broadcasting and their journeys to Stockton. 

Coming off their best finish last year, when the Thunder won the ECHL Western Conference Championships, the off-season changes have been well publicized. After falling to the Reading Royals in the Kelly Cup Finals, the Stockton Thunder said goodbye to the head coach Matt Thomas and team President Dan Chapman, as well as their play-by-play announcer. 

This year, the team went with two very talented broadcasters. Caleb provides the play-by-play and Brandon takes care of the color commentary. 

If you have never heard a play called in hockey, you are in for a real treat. If you are a Thunder fan, Caleb and Brandon give us a quick peek behind the scenes of what it's like to handle the broadcasting, media relations and social media for an ECHL team. 

Since Caleb and Brandon are both new to Stockton, Susan and Matt asked them about their experiences here so far. 

Caleb and Brandon are happy to be in Stockton, and invite everyone to connect with them on Twitter. And don't forget to tell them about your favorite hangout spot or restaurant. Find them at @CalebLambTweet and @kiskerbc.

Visit stocktonthunder.com for ticket and game info, and follow them on Facebook.com/StocktonThunder and Twitter @StocktonThunder.

Go Thunder!

Merry Christmas from Podcast Stockton
