Episode 104: Of Nightmares (Part I)

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-jcx4q-e209a1

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.

Today we conclude the Women of the Wild West series. We go deeper on a lot of familiar stories that were glossed over in previous episodes. We revisit the West Coast championship series between the Amazons, Vamps, and Kewpies; and hockey in Calgary, Fernie, and Edmonton.

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

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-m6tqb-db9cfe

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)

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-ctvr8-daa1aa

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!

Episode 053: Queens of the Rink (Part II)

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-wvi9m-8b2504

In part two of the Preston Rivulettes story, we pick up where we left off with the team losing the national championship. The Rivulettes didn’t let the defeat dissuade them from their ultimate goal of being the best women’s team in Canada. They went right back to work, and climbed to the top of the proverbial mountain. In this episode we see the Rivulettes rise to greatness, get tripped up, and rise again. Ultimately the Rivulettes will see the same end as so many teams during this time period, but unlike those teams, they become honored forever.

Interview 006: Author Matt Brown

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-5f94b-d7b569

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 normal. 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.

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-i4akj-d63c9a

In this episode we get out our snow shoes, and hike across the Canadian Rockies! We set up shop in Alberta where we learn about teams from Calgary (the Crescents, and the Regents), and Edmonton. We also see the Banff Winter Carnival come into focus, and what it did for women’s hockey in the area.

Episode 098: Women of the Wild West (Part III)

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-9u7ae-d63969

Sorry for the delay, folks! I don’t know where my brain was last week, but I completely forgot to record. Unbelievable, yet…completely believable, because I am me. Anyway, the show is here! This week we follow the Patrick family to Vancouver. It is there they build two state-of-the-art arenas in less than a year, and set up the PCHA. However, not to be forgotten is the actual topic of this series: the ladies! The women in the communities of Vancouver, Victoria, and New Westminster greatly benefit from the Patricks’ arrival, and create teams of their own. Gather ’round as we meet the Vancouver team that undergoes a rebrand, and the “bunch of school girls” who go on to kick some serious butt.
