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.

Episode 094: Golden Granato

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-vg8bq-cb647b

Our talk on women’s hockey continues today as we find ourselves in Japan.  It’s here we meet Cammi Granato on the biggest night of her life: the gold medal game of the 1998 Winter Olympics.  Her story doesn’t begin here, however; it really begins in 1980.  It was then that she watched the US men’s team defeat the USSR en route to their own gold medal.  From that moment she was hooked on hockey, and set off on a path to become a superstar.
