Eddie Shack feat. Ken Reid & Senior - Episode 36

November 5, 2019

Clear the track, here comes Shack! We've got the legend that is Eddie Shack on the show this week and bring on some beauties to help us out with it.

Before the theme song even finishes we dive into some serious music talk with the one and only Terry Ryan Sr. Eventually Chuck shows up and we talk about some hockey, particularly Milan Lucic and everyone being upset at him for doing what he's specifically paid money to do. 

Then we make way for 3 time All Star and FOUR TIME CUP CHAMP Eddie Shack. Eddie has just written a new book with the help of (friend of the show) Killer Ken Reid, Evanka's friend. Eddie wows us with some incredible stories of unjust penalties, Rocket Richard, and losing his license at 13. 

This one is incredible.

There's a whole bunch more, including Mike & Chuck geeking out about jerseys once the room clears, but oh boy, you don't want to miss this week's 3MI brought to you by HeadCheckHealth.com

Chuck is still in Montreal so this week it's just Mike & TR talking about their choice to not swear last week and how they made it through.

Then Steve Kiely from Canadian rockers Monster Truck comes on to talk touring, being in video games, and what its like to be the goal song for the team you grew up idolizing.

Tim Thompson - Episode 34

Tim Thompson - Episode 34

October 23, 2019

We've got Tim Thompson on the show this week and he may be the the most unsung, under appreciated guest we've had - even though we all sing his praises and appreciate him A LOT.

This guy has made you cry. I guarantee it. Tim is a filmmaker who through the earlier part of the decade was responsible for the montages that opened Hockey Night In Canada. Those emotionally resonate and stirring pieces set to your favourite songs? That was Tim.

What you might not know about him is that before he went after your feels every week he went after hockey dreams - even playing a year of pro in a place he calls a "cross between Slap Shot and Spinal Tap". We talk through all of that and how it lead to his career with CBC Sports and Paul Coffey almost getting him in some trouble over song licenses. 

Plus - Mike & TR try to make it a whole episode without swearing.

Ryan Anderson - Episode 33

Ryan Anderson - Episode 33

October 16, 2019

Hoo boy, get ready for this one.

We're all here for the intro, which is nice, and we actually talk about some hockey including who is off to a slow start (The Lightning) and who is off to a huge start (Real Deal James Neal) and then we get to our interview.

Ryan "Skinny" Anderson isn't a name a lot of hockey fans may know out of the gate, having spent his career in Austin and Orlando, but it was in the latter where he caught up with TR, won a championship, and cemented his status as one of the craziest people you'll ever hear from. He went full Ned Braden in an out of town barn after winning the 'ship - and that's just the beginning of the night. You'll also hear about how he "missed" his own wedding (but that really depends on how you define the word "missed"). 

I'm telling you, this one isn't for the faint of heart. Strap in.

Tara Slone - Episode 32

Tara Slone - Episode 32

October 8, 2019

We've got another week where Terry & Mike start things off and Chuck comes by to finish up.

The part that's different though is that Mike & TR spend the first bit of the show actually talking about hockey as they discuss some interesting stories from the first week of the season including Milan Lucic's job with the Flames and Jack Edwards' ability to piss off Roman Polak's agent. But not to fear, they somehow wind up talking about movie popcorn and Neil Sedaka before we get to the guest. 

Tara Slone joins us to talk about training to be an opera singer before acting in B horror movies and leading Joydrop, about her solo records and Breakfast Television, and how that all lead her to her current gig co-hosting Rogers Hometown Hockey with friend of the show Ron MacLean and what she's looking forward to about the upcoming season - which will bring her out our way in a couple weeks.

Then TR and Chuck tag out and Mike and Chuck talk about some of the same stuff, but there's more bickering about it than earlier.

Jeremy Charles - Episode 31

Jeremy Charles - Episode 31

October 2, 2019

This week TR and Mike are joined by one of the greatest chefs in Canada; who just happens to be one of Terry's oldest friends.

Jeremy Charles joins the guys at the Ten Dollar Studio and hops in Chuck's empty seat to reminisce about growing up in Mount Pearl, playing PeeWee hockey in Quebec, sitting in Terry's WAG seats at Canadiens games with Sam Roberts (Happy Birthday Sam), and how all that lead him to a fascinating career traveling the world as a renowned chef with two incredibly popular restaurants and a new book, "Wildness", on store shelves now.

Dave Bidini - Episode 30

Dave Bidini - Episode 30

September 24, 2019

Don't worry folks, we're making up for the live show not getting uploaded with this behemoth of an episode.

Off the top TR and Mike share their excitement for this week's guest, along with some thoughts about baseball movies before Chuck arrives just in time for a history lesson about the origins of the Screech In and Mike basically begs for an in-kind sponsorship. 

Then we bring in the prolific polymath Dave Bidini to talk about all the things he does and how hockey seems to be at the heart of all of it. Dave talks us through the new Rheostatics record, graciously answers questions about our favourite tunes, records, books, finding hockey in Transylvania, baseball in Italy, and how Wendel Clark gave the best reply to an attempt at introduction ever.

At this point things are running long, to say the least so TR tries to queue up some topics for next week and still gets hauled into a discussion about the salary cap and current RFA class.

Donald MacLean - Episode 29

Donald MacLean - Episode 29

September 10, 2019

With less than a week before our PuckTalks live event at The Rec Room in St John's (Sept 14, 7-10pm) we catch up with an old friend of Terry's, Donald "Daddy Mack" MacLean. 

From Bedford, NS, Donald was a multisport athlete who locked in on hockey and found his way all over the world with the game, including some time right here in St John's with the Baby Leafs. He also spent some time with the Coyotes franchise and had Wayne Gretzky as a coach - which wasn't like you might expect.

We also talk up the massive victory by Bianca Andreescu at the US Open and if pitch counting is hurting or helping young ball players.

Chris Dingman - Episode 28

Chris Dingman - Episode 28

September 4, 2019

TR is back from his trip to Letterkenny and a little worse for the wear but that doesn't stop us from hearing about the trip and his subsequent trip to the hospital. Then we make a pretty exciting announcement...

After that we're joined by two-time Stanley Cup Champ Chris Dingman who delivered Terry's first check. He walks us through his career starting with some pretty wild WHL games where the concessions came into the mix, all the way to his two Cup wins where two long suffering league veterans finally got to hoist Lord Stanley. 

Then we chat about Justin Williams non-retirement which somehow drifts into a conversation about how good Mario Lemieux was (and might still be).

Ron MacLean - Episode 27

Ron MacLean - Episode 27

August 27, 2019

Holy Crap, you guys - we've got Ron MacLean.

Before he comes on we catch up on what everyone's been doing the last few week's like TR's new gig and Mike's new backyard tiki bar, and then talk a little about the ever nearer NHL season, who's going to be signed and when, and who's getting suspended for a stupid amount of time by the IIHF.

But then, Ron.

Fun story; when we were recording episode 2 or 3 the local CBC showed up and interviewed us and asked us who our dream guests would be. 

This was Chuck's answer. 

Ron is a legend. He's a national treasure and you'll quickly figure out why. He talks about his time moving around the country as an army brat before his family settled in Red Deer and he started at the local radio station while he was still in high school and launching a career that has made him one of the most trusted, familiar, and friendly faces in the country.

We're pumped to kick off our second season - and first full NHL season - with Rockin' Ron MacLean.
