This episode features special guest Poppy Fitzgerald of the amazing and indispensable This Amelnykan Life podcast. In addition to a discussion about their work (seriously, just fuggin subscribe) we talk about Gritty and Spartacat both being Libras, Melnyk’s bizarre statements about spending to the cap, the impending doom of Stone and Duchene at the trade deadline, and something about an Australian reality TV show that I refuse to Google to learn more about.
Well, it’s happened. The Ottawa Senators have traded the best player in franchise history and hollowed out the soul of the team for years to come. James, Varada and Luke react with cooler heads than anyone might have thought.
In this episode, James and Varada welcome very special guests Chet Sellers and Luke Peristy of the Chet Sellers and Luke Peristy Podcast, and we collectively struggle to find anything to talk about because so little is going on in the world of the Ottawa Senators other than the slow-motion destruction of the very thing we all love so dearly.
In this latest episode of an Ottawa Senators podcast, Varada and James discuss the Montreal Canadiens, Edmonton Oilers, and New York Rangers. (Oh, also Ottawa’s weird 5-2-5 record and how much Cody Ceci sucks.)
Recorded following Ottawa’s killer 6-0 win over Calgary and before their killer 6-1 win over Edmonton, James and Varada talk about the Sens’ early-season success, Calgary getting gassed-up by critics, Turris’ next contract and, weirdly, Buffalo.
Music: Akron/Family, Ava Luna, Beach Fossils, Black Lips, Boyhood.
James and Varada return at long last to discuss what it’s like to be a hockey fan in California; the life and times of the soon-to-be best landscaping boss in Canada, Clarke MacArthur; the wide array of quality salts on offer from Draglam Salts; how when you look at our expectations of Curtis Lazar, Colin White is probably fucked; and weird Vegas odds.
Music: the Oxes “Half Half Half,” Pumice “Eye Bath”, Quest for Fire “I’ve Been Trying to Leave,” Oval “Ah!”
