Welcome to The History of Hockey Podcast website!
My name is Shane Guilfoyle. I am from a small mountain town in central Colorado, USA. My family came from Ireland during the potato famine, and settled in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada before moving south to the States via Brooklyn, New York. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature, and Creative Writing. I also have an unfinished Master’s Degree in uh…something?
I am a lifelong fan and student of hockey and, of course, its history. So, in June of 2015, after months of planning (procrastinating), I put my ideas into a podcast. The result: The History of Hockey Podcast; researched, written, and hosted by me. Join me for this in-depth look at over five millennia of hockey, the greatest game on earth. These are the stories of legends.
