Scotchcast Episode 6: #forsale

In which James, Steven, and Varada discuss:

  • The Spezza trade. (Did you know Spezza was traded? We didn’t until this podcast was being recorded. We still don’t know where he was traded, or for what, but we feel totally comfortable calling a winner and loser before anyone’s played any hockey.)
  • Bobby Ryan’s contract negotiation, or LACK THEREOF (*foreboding gong noise*).
  • The fact that nobody likes the team anymore and hockey sort of sucks now. (Opinions are Twitter’s own and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of WTYKY or its parent corporation.)
  • How painfully uncool Sens marketing campaigns are, and predictions for the 2014-2015 rallying cry. (Hint: it’s in the title.)


Scotchcast Episode 5: “God Bless the Dead (Aerosmith)”



Hey Boo,

After a post-Olympic dry spell, the world’s most beloved and least popular Ottawa Senators podcast, the WTYKY Scotchcast returns!
Thanks to my being the Pascal LeClaire of the recording arts, Varada, Steve and I recorded a podcast chock full of delicious technical problems rendering it virtually unlistenable. Great engineering job, me! …You know what, it’s probably just as well as Varada brought over a bottle of some scotch I’d never heard of from India (birthplace of SCOTCH!) and things got….in a word, messy. No, really, even by our standards it was messy. I don’t remember huge portions of it. What’s important is that I deleted it. Oh you’re not getting off that easy…we re-did it.
It’s with mixed emotions that I announce that Varada could not attend the re-recording session as he will be off reprising his role as Magical Mister Mephistopheles in an off-off-off-off Broadway production of Andrew Dice Weber’s Cats this summer at the Soulja Boi Centre for the Performing Arts in Butte, Montana this summer. Get tickets here! Break a leg, V! (Seriously, teach you to miss our Scotchcast re-record).
Spoiler Alert: Steve and James talk about Jason Spezza…and…I think Edward Furlong comes up at one point…what eeeeeelse… oh, we take YOUR questions in the latest installment of “Talk to the Audience.” Enjoy!

Scotchcast Episode 4 Part 1: The Sochicast


James and Varada return uninvited to your minidisc player OR WHO KNOWS WHAT PERSONAL LISTENING DEVICE in part 1 of a 2 part series. They share what they think are their authoritative views on Canada’s all-men Olympic hockey squadron.
Enjoy and stay tuned for part 2. Well, that is if I somehow manage to avoid suffering a complete mental collapse while trying to sort out the mysterious technical issues that are currently stopping the MUCH ANTICIPATED part 2 from working…maybe it will never work…at this point I’m not sure. I actually woke up at 4:30am because I couldn’t sleep because it’s bothering me so much (not joking!). Anyway, it’s now 6:30am and I managed to get part 1 to work. What I’m saying here is, I’m having a great day! Anyway, don’t you worry about any of that. What’s important is that you enjoy part one while I go cry in the dark, fully clothed under an ice cold shower.

Scotchcast Episode 3: The Triforcening


Varada, James and Steve at long last break their silence on the topic of the Ottawa Senators on this podcast. Their shortest episode yet! Clocking in at two full seconds shorter than episode 2. I know these things are lengthy and speaking as a working mother of 14, just like you, I know you don’t have all the time in world but yo check this out: Just download this thang to your mobile device, tablet device, personal computer device OR WHO KNOWS WHAT SPICY DEVICE and listen to it in delicious bite sized morsels…because you know what? No, seriously, seriously I’m trying to tell you something…you know what? You’re worth it.

Hope you enjoy it!

Join in the fun as Steven and James AT LONG LAST break their silence on issues such as Alfred Danielsson’s return to the Arena, get emotional about how the team isn’t doing well, share some EXPLOSIVE thoughts on the Heritage Classic jersey and MORE!
