Episode 171: Happy Hour (with Steve Ewen)

This week on the show that bombed out in the quarter-finals, sportswriter STEVE EWEN (PostMedia, The Province) stops by to wrap up the World Junior tournament that took over Vancouver to start the new year, and all that talk of junior talent leads to a discussion on the Vancouver Giants, and why you’re unlikely to see hockey ever return full-time to the Pacific Coliseum. PLUS: Lacrosse’s return to downtown! The rise of Vancouver’s basketball culture! And how the Canucks are failing Elias Pettersson.

Light blog this week, on account of fighting through technical difficulties with Adobe Audition that forced me to re-edit the show THREE. SEPARATE. TIMES. But it’s done now. Enjoy it.
