This week on the show that has a show this week, it’s a crossover event for the ages, as the ladies of PUCK BUNNIES, AUDREY & CHRISTINA make their RGS debuts. There is so much hockey to catch up on, and we try to touch it all: the Hurricanes’ improv troupe energy, the Blue Jackets pushing all in, why Jay Beagle is beloved in Washington, the Morgan Rielly thing, and why the Pittsburgh Penguins are the most fascinating team to watch as a Vancouver fan. PLUS: Audrey and Christina discuss their experiences with hockey Twitter’s sexist gatekeepers, we run afoul of Islanders and Leafs fans during the Tavares return game, and we revisit the relic of gendered hockey coverage that was CBC’s While The Men Watch.
This week on the show that might waive, but then again might not, J.D. BURKE of The Athletic Vancouver stops by the show for a lengthy discussion on where the Canucks are at after the midway point of the season, what they should do about Alex Edler as trade deadline approaches, and how the Edler conversation is over-shadowing some more important decisions the team needs to make either at the deadline or during the off-season. PLUS: Why everyone hates J.D., and getting real about the lifestyle of those trying to break into the current sports media landscape.
This week on a lengthy show with a plump runtime, Justin and Stefan are reeling in the immediate aftermath of the Canucks acquiring Erik Gudbranson from the Florida Panthers. If miserable sports pain is what keeps you coming back to RGS, this one's a doozy. PLUS: We're joined by Dick Pud, head of cyber security at KattWillFerrell Enterprises LLC, who tells us how he repelled ISIS forces from the popular Twitter parody parody account. Oh, and the NHL and NBA playoffs roll on, with great surprises!
