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 the show that can barely read, mate, the Real Good Boys get back to their roots with some hardcore, post-Trade Deadline discussion/depression about the Canucks. John moderates a discussion of the team's direction with Stefan and Justin, who grow increasingly despaired and try to decide if the Canucks will win a Cup while any of us are alive. PLUS: Roger Ebert! Building a statue of ourselves! Action figures! And the return of Steven Adams to Clip of the Week!
This week on the show that needs to make a f***ing save out there, the Real Good Boys are joined by the Nation Network's Managing Editor of Hockey Content, Jeff Veillette, to discuss the Leafs and Canucks' deadline moves, Carolina coach Bill Peters' incendiary comments about his own goaltender, and Jeff's one-sided feud with Toronto city councillor and all-around trash-person Norm Kelly. PLUS: We recap that bizarre Lee Powell Twitter beef, and formally announce the forthcoming Real Good Show Baseball Club season.
It's a week of equally outrageous snubs, as P.K. Subban is left off Team Canada's initial line-up for the World Cup and Real Good Show is overlooked as one of Vancouver's Best Podcasts. Meanwhile, the Canucks' inaction at the Trade Deadline leaves us further incensed and the NFL Combine yields some flashy results. PLUS: Yoenis Céspedes goes hog wild! And a painful combination of WWE and Subway has us dreaming of Ric Flair cutting sandwich-inspired heel promos.
