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.

Without further adieu, here are the podcasts!

June 22, 2017: Episode 248
Teebz and Beans finish off the Survivor: NHL Playoffs contest with Paul's interview. They go over the NHL's Vegas Golden Knights assembling a team from the unprotected players from the other thirty teams. We tackle the NHL jersey situation with our thoughts on teams that may have designed something worse than before, and we talk about the draft class with Winnipegger Nolan Patrick trying to become the first Winnipeg-born player to go first-overall. The Manitoba Bisons posted the hockey schedules for the men's and women's teams, we have an announcement about the show, and we look at the most popular way to enjoy a hockey game staple from each province across this great land!

June 15, 2017: Episode 247
Teebz, with the help of Free-Range Radio's Skippy, goes over the Stanley Cup Final as another NHL seasonis wrapped up. He takes a look at the AHL's Calder Cup Final and the success of IHL teams in the AHL, NHL buyouts as teams position themselves for the expansion draft, some USports news, some Manitoba Bisons news, some ball hockey news, coaching changes at a number of levels, a KHL resolution that has led to more problems, a shout-out to a team we shouted-out to a couple of weeks ago, and a host of other stories as the two gents run the gauntlet on the hockey chatter from the past two weeks!

Teebz sat down with Kristen Campbell, formerly of the University of North Dakota Fighting Hawks program, to talk with her about her career to date, some of her hockey heroes and inspirations, and her recent transfer to the University of Wisconsin Badgers after UND's decision to cut the women's hockey program entirely. Kristen gives some pretty candid comments on how the situation at UND went down after the women's hcokey program was cut, how it was handled by both the team and herself, and her thoughts and feelings on the administration who made the decision, her coaches and teammates who are now scattered across the NCAA landscape, and how this door closing allowed the door to Wisconsin to open.

June 1, 2017: Episode 245
Tonight's show has Teebz and Beans talking about the very odd Stanley Cup Final when it comes to statistical analysis and how the Penguins have managed to defy the odds thus far.

We dive into the NHL news that includes the location for the 2018 All-Star Game meaning there's no Olympics, some coaching changes, some Entry Draft news, some expansion draft news, and more. There are some odds and ends to cover as an ECHL team changes its logo, an MJHL team announces a new GM, and the WHL Prospects Combine lands in our fair city this weekend. We also have a shout-out to a team heading south for a tournament this weekend!
