The Mordecai Jones Chronicles – Episode 1

"OVER THE HILLS OF DAGESTAN AND FAR AWAY: WHY AND WHERE DANA WHITE NEEDS TO GO" Lookin' for a fight? Want a location? Mordecai Jones is lookin' for a fight with one man, Dana White, the guy he figures is single-handedly responsible for the insane brawl at UFC 229, and more importantly, the pout on Stipe Miocic's mug. There's only one location cold enough for the President's cage-side manner, and it's over the hills of Dagestan and far away.

A conversation with Mary Ormsby

My conversation with veteran writer, and columnist Mary Ormsby, whose prolific work at The Toronto Star for over three decades has cemented her status as one of the most dynamic and accomplished investigative journalists for cultural, historical, and sports-related narratives across Canada. We discussed her experiences in working for a pillar of mainstream journalism and how she bridges the gap between life's lessons and sports stories, on how she was able to forge ahead as a female reporter in a male-dominated landscape, her candid thoughts on the current state of the industry during the Age of Trump, her take on the spectacle that was the Brett Kavanaugh hearings and the consequent societal fallout, and how she genuinely feels about readers in the modern age. Be sure to follow Mary (@MaryOrmsby) on social media and at The Toronto Star ( where her articles will be sure to inspire and make you think twice about the world around us.
