Ari Shapiro on The Neutral Zone

My latest guest appearance (10-06) on The Neutral Zone podcast (@AMIaudio) with hosts Brock Richardson (@neutralzonebr) & Cam Jenkins (@NeutralZoneCamJ) talking about the Toronto Blue Jays.

We engaged in a retrospective look at the Blue Jays season that was, if I was surprised that John Gibbons managed to last the entire season, candid thoughts on the second best manager in the history of the franchise, who the next manager of the team should be, if multilingualism will be a major factor in upgrading the coaching staff, how the financial justification of keeping Vlad Guerrero Jr. buried in the minors will come back to haunt the front office, and if Mark Shapiro will be around to rebuild this team properly.

A conversation with Jackie Redmond

My conversation with popular television and radio sportscaster Jackie Redmond, whose brilliant work and credibility at The Score and on Sportsnet led her south of the border where she is now a host at the NHL and MLB networks. Oh, and she’s got a national podcast as well!

We talked about her daunting transition from Canada to south of the border, how she feels hockey fans respond to her efforts in the US, feelings on the state of the NHL today and if she’s encouraged about their growth and marketing direction, why her departure from the sports landscape in this country felt like losing a first overall draft pick, how she feels about the young season and the seemingly endless cavalcade of goal-scoring, her candid take on the state of Toronto sports today, and the importance of truly enjoying what one does for a living.

Maple Leafs Round Table – White, Morassutti, Owens

I’m pleased to bring you my latest hockey round table featuring three professors of puck whose insights and expertise on all things Toronto Maple Leafs could easily be considered second to none; Omar White, David Morassutti, and Austin Owens.

We discussed their thoughts on the first week of the season and any surprises or disappointments which left indelible impressions, their collective concerns about the team’s suspect blue line, why certain NHL calibre defensemen might remain whipping boys for an entire season, the always vexing issue of Mike Babcock’s selective minutes distribution and why the universally lauded Travis Dermott deserves much more ice time, and their definitive hot takes on the William Nylander impasse in all its false splendor and surreal glory.

Be sure to check out the fine literary and audio work from Omar White (@OLW93) with Pension Plan Puppets, Dave Morassutti (@d_morassutti) of Sportsnet, and Austin Owens (@_AustinOwens) at The Score.
