Episode 107: The Life of Charlie Gardiner (Part I) - Winnipeg

Today we begin a new series on goaltender Charlie Gardiner. We talked about Charlie about forty-or-so episodes ago, but this time we are going far deeper than just his death. This episode covers his early life from Scotland to Winnipeg to Chicago. He grows up playing a myriad of sports, including baseball, rugby, and hockey. We see him turn pro with the Winnipeg Maroons hockey team, which forces him to forfeit his amateur status in all other sports. He meets Myrtle Brooks, the love interest (gotta have one of those, right?) and then, rather suddenly, finds himself on his way out of Winnipeg.

Episode 104: Of Nightmares (Part I)

In Part I of this harrowing true story, we meet John O'Sullivan, and his son Patrick. John's failures as a hockey player turn him into a living, breathing nightmare of a hockey parent. He demands perfection from Patrick on the ice at every turn. When John doesn't get perfection, he physically abuses Patrick. The older Patrick gets, the worse the abuse becomes. Open-hand slaps become full-on, full-force punches. Patrick quickly finds out that no one is coming to save him; he has to stand up to his father on his own.

Episode 102: Women of the Wild West (Part VI)

We have reached the penultimate episode of the series, and it's all about downfall. Women's hockey has hit its zenith, and now we must watch it crumble. We see the Banff Winter Carnival die a slow, agonizing death, and women's hockey quickly follows. Contributing factors include destructive acts from rival organizations who want the recognition of producing women's hockey champs themselves, the Great Depression, the Second World War and more. Unfortunately, the only victim in all of this is women and their ability to play hockey. It's a long way to the bottom.

Episode 101: Women of the Wild West (Part V)

After a break for the 100th episode, and (of course) being a week late releasing this, the Women of the Wild West series has returned! This week our episode involves the Vancouver Amazons almost exclusively. We cover their inaugural appearance at the Banff Winter Carnival (I correct myself on some misinformation from a few episodes back), their rise to the top of the mountain, the strange year that was 1922, and the team's inevitable (and incredibly frustrating) descent down the other side after reaching the summit. After this there are only two more episodes left in the series. Enjoy!

Interview 006: Author Matt Brown

Today I am talking with Matt Brown, a former high school hockey player, who was paralyzed from the neck down at the age of 15. Through goal-setting, guts, a "never quit" motto, and a lot of loving hands a long the way, Matt conquered his new obstacles. He has gone on to grad school, gives public speeches, is a published author, and even a marathon runner. Check out Matt online here, and purchase his fabulous book "Line Change: A True Story of Resilience in the Face of Adversity" on Amazon.
