As for the individual shows, you can find them below. Just click on the episode you want, and you'll be able to download the .mp3 of the episode. PLEASE NOTE: I've moved the podcasts to my Google Drive to help alleviate some server space issues at the radio station. Google Drive's antivirus only successfully scans files that are sized 25mb or less. Because the shows are approximately 30-60mb in size, you may see a screen like this.
Please do not be alarmed! It's just Google's way of inciting a riot (that's a joke). All Google is telling you is that their antivirus programming on Google Drive cannot scan the file because it's larger than 25mb. I assure you that I'm never going to post a virus on any of these podcast links, and all you'll get is an .mp3 file download of Beans and I talking hockey. I promise. Email me here if you have questions or concerns.

Without further adieu, here are the podcasts!

February 4, 2016: Episode 176
Kevin Wilson, organizer and director of the FXR Cup ball hockey tournament, will be in-studio tonight to talk about the tournament, its growth, where it's headed, and much more! We'll also look at some hockey headlines and get his and cohort Vin's opinions on these topics! We talk Ladd vs. Byfuglien and all the Jets' trade bait, Steven Stamkos and his possible move, Brett Yormark's ridiculous statement about seating at the Barclay's Center, and the All-Star Game format.

January 28, 2016: Episode 175
Beans and I are honoured, proud, privileged, and humbled to be able to speak with one of the CWHL's finest players, a 2016 CWHL All-Star, and a member of the Brampton Thunder in forward Candice Styles! Candice is coming off the recent CWHL All-Star Weekend, so we'll talk to her about that, her start in hockey, her international and national play both with Hockey Canada and the CIS, and how she ended up at Wilfred Laurier University where she developed into one of the best defencemen this country has to offer that has come through the CIS system!

January 21, 2016: Episode 174
Teebz and Beans discuss the events of each of the CWHL, the NWHL, and the KHL who all have all-star games played this weekend. They also explore seemingly idiocy shown by Jonathan Drouin in not showing up for AHL games, the Jets and Predators who will tangle shortly after the show ends at MTS Centre, Brian McGrattan's unfortunate and scary fall to the ice and whether hockey dodged a bullet on this one, a first for the city of Brandon, the Canadian sledge hockey team and Brandon Reid, and they close out the show with a tribute to a musician who was a true hockey fan!

January 14, 2016: Episode 173
Rumours out of the NHL circles have the Los Angeles Kings and Anze Kopitar close to an eight-year, $80 million contract that will put him among the NHL's richest for the better part of a decade. Is Kopitar worth that kind of cash? What is Stamkos worth if Kopitar does get that money? How about Byfuglien and Ladd? Teebz and Beans discuss all these scenarios as they put the old accounting caps on. They also discuss Pacific All-Star team captain John Scott sent down to the AHL where he'll suit up for the Springfield Falcons, a Russian amateur game that saw 790(!) penalty minutes handed out in one period(!), and they look at the terrible weekend in Edmonton for the Bisons women's hockey team compared to the incredible weekend the Bisons men's team had at home.

January 7, 2016: Episode 172
Teebz and Beans discuss the many hockey-related topics that have dominated headlines recently. These include the ten-game winning streak and Atlantic Division-leading Florida Panthers, the Winnipeg Jets and their .500 hockey, the trades and signings in recent days, the World Junior Hockey Championship in Helsinki and the fallout here in Canada, the Spengler Cup and Canada's victory in Davos, the Winter Classic and the dud in the TV ratings it's proving to be, how Winnipeg is "owed" a Heritage Classic and the possibility of it being played before January 1, the Moose and whether we're seeing any progress being made in the prospects, and John Scott and the NHL All-Star Game rosters!

December 24, 2015: Episode 171
We are proud, honoured, privileged, and humbled to welcome one of Manitoba's greatest women's hockey players to the show tonight as we have Miss Jenelle Kohanchuk on the phone! Jenelle plays for the CWHL's Toronto Furies currently, and she's working on an invite to the 2018 Olympics with Team Canada. We'll talk to her about everything that's gone on with her in the half-hour we have with her as she has other family commitments tonight!

December 17, 2015: Episode 170
We are honoured, privileged, and humbled to welcome to the UMFM studios the man with one of the most recognizable masks in hockey history as Warren Skorodenski joins us on the program tonight! Warren only played 35 games in the NHL, but he's a part of hockey history on a few levels and has traveled the country and continent thanks to hockey! We'll talk to him about growing up in Winnipeg, playing in the MJHL, WHL AHL, IHL, and NHL as well as for the Canadian National team, some of his teammates, and anything else that comes up in between.

December 10, 2015: Episode 169
Teebz and Beans speak with Tom Rinn tonight, and you will want to hear his story. Tom is a six-time World Championship gold medalist. Tom has played all over the world. Tom is an elite athlete. Tom is also an amputee. Now you might be asking yourself how he plays hockey, and the answer is simple: like everyone else! Tom Rinn is a member of the Canadian National Standing Amputee team, and he's become a mainstay on the team that has won six-straight gold medals in the sport!

December 3, 2015: Episode 168
There will be much chatter and evil laughter as Teebz and Beans discuss the Jets who absolutely demolished the Leafs last night. We'll talk about Garret Sparks, the Moose after the Chicago Wolves slaughtered them last night, the Manitoba Bisons women's team and some advanced stats, the Beaulieu-Foligno fight and concussion protocol in the NHL, John Scott's potential All-Star Game nomination, the World Junior Championship in 2018 with the potential for an outdoor game, and MLB pitcher David Price getting $31 million per year for seven years and why athlete salaries are out of control.

November 26, 2015: Episode 167
Beans and Teebz discuss where the Jets have gone wrong, what they need to do to right the ship, and where they need to be over the next month if playoffs are in their future once again. They talk about the Montreal Canadiens losing Brendan Gallagher and Carey Price once more and how that may affect them, and signing Marc Bergevin to a new extension and why that's good for the club. They chat about Nail Yakupov being injured by a linesman, some KHL news, and we'll bring to you another Connor McDavid injury update (hint: he's still injured). We toss a few promotions out into radio land, and we talk a little Bisons hockey in this hour!

November 19, 2015: Episode 166
Teebz and Beans are back and they've got Moose news as Nic Petan joins the team, Kelly Zajac signs with the club, and Bakersfield's leading scorer in Matthew Ford will sit out both games against the Moose due to suspension. They've got Jets news as they downed Vancouver last night, ended a six-game losing skid, and all sorts of rumours about Travis Hamonic and the Jets. They have Manitoba Bisons updates as they near the December break. They have KHL updates. They chat about the NHL All-Star Game, the NWHL All-Star Game, and we'll even toss in a Connor McDavid update (hint: he's still injured)!

November 12, 2015: Episode 165
Teebz sits down with aspiring Canadian Olympic skeleton racer Cassie Hawrysh! Cassie's sport is a little obscure, but it got a lot of recognition thanks to Jon Montgomery - another good Manitoba kid - after he won an Olympic gold medal at the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games. Cassie is chasing down that same dream, and I'll chat with her tonight about growing up in Brandon, moving to Windsor, Ontario for volleyball, finding her way to Regina for track-and-field, and how she eventually landed on the skeleton sled for Canada. We'll talk about skeleton, we'll find out how she's tied to hockey, and we'll do a little Q&A so we get to know Cassie a little better so you'll be able to recognize her when she stands on the podium in 2018 in South Korea!

November 5, 2015: Episode 164
Teebz sits down with TSN's James Duthie! James, as you may know, is literally the guy on the left when it comes to the TSN hockey panel, and we're honoured to speak with him about his new book, The Guy On The Left. Teebz goes over his childhood, his inroads into broadcasting, and what it's like being part of the TSN crew. We also find out who has the best dimples from Winnipeg and west, hear one of James' favorite stories about CFL legend Matt Dunigan, and get his perspective on some of the guys who have served on the panel with him.

October 29, 2015: Episode 163
Teebz has a full interview with University of North Dakota and Team Canada defenceman Halli Krzyzaniak! They talk about growing up in Neepawa, Manitoba, moving to BC at the tender age of 13, being recruited by a number of schools before finally picking UND, and stepping onto the ice as a member of Team Canada! Halli is off to the Four Nations Cup with Canada shortly, so it's time to get to know one of Team Canada's outstanding young players!

October 22, 2015: Episode 162
Teebz and Beans break down all the incredible giveaways being done by the two illustrious hosts. They talk Pledge-O-Rama incentives before breaking into John Tortorella, Pascal Dupuis, the Montreal Canadiens, Jets news, Moose news, Brandon Wheat Kings news, Evander Kane chatter, and a discussion on NHL division leaders.

October 15, 2015: Episode 161
Teebz and Beans chat about the craziness of the upcoming Pledge-O-Rama week-long event. They eventually talk about what they like and/or dislike about the current 3-1-0 Winnipeg Jets, thoughts on the 0-1-1 Moose who started the season in Toronto and will play the Ontario Reign at MTS Centre tonight, the Arizona Coyotes riding high on Domi, Duclair, and Smith, hugely disappointing starts from the Penguins and Blue Jackets, and we might even mention something about a baseball game.

October 8, 2015: Episode 160
Beans and Teebz go over all the details of Pledge-O-Rama! We chat about the Jets and Bruins who kick things off at 6pm in Boston tonight and we update you on the game throughout the show. We talk about the opening games last night, Raffi Torres' suspension, the opening weekend to the Bisons women's hockey season, the Moose opening their campaign in Toronto tomorrow, and more!

October 1, 2015: Episode 159
With Beans needing the evening off, Nicole Haase will join us from her home base in Wisconsin, and we'll get her take on the issues. The Hockey Show is proud to welcome fellow UMFM radio show host Emerald from her show The F Word, heard on Tuesday nights from 6:00-6:30pm. Emerald will bring the feminist's view to the show, but she's very in-tune with issues facing women in sports as her show has discussed a number of these issues. We dive into the CWHL-vs-NWHL chatter about players leaving, playing for pay, and whether the product on the ice will ultimately determine the fates of these two leagues. We chat about the salaries some of the players are being paid and whether it's in line with what we perceive they deserve for their efforts, why the CIS is virtually invisible on the sports map in North America despite there being good players playing in the CIS and having graduated from the CIS, and whether or not Russia is the emerging powerhouse in women's hockey with their stars and the new WHL starting up in Russia.

September 24, 2015: Episode 158
Teebz and Beans got a last-minute drop-in from Bisons women's hockey team members Alana Serhan and Amanda Schubert! We talk with the ladies about their summers, the preseason work they've been doing, some of the conference news, and their new teammates as they begin preparation for the 2015-16 season! We also discuss the Jets and their special teams problems, the Penguins and Phil Kessel, John Tortorella and his new gig, Josh Ho-Sang and Garth Snow, the contracts for two of the Jets' stars, and much more!

September 17, 2015: Episode 157
Teebz and Beans are joined by John of the Capitol District Islander blog, James of the Avs Hockey Podcast, and Tom of Bisons Sports to make bold prediction in the NHL round table! The five men cast their guesses as to who wins divisions and finishes where, and break down all of the divisions in terms of which teams finish where, and they play some word association with Patrick Kane, Slava Voynov, 3-on-3 overtime, and more!
