    6DMM 34: Graham Rahal

    On this week's episode I'm joined by second-generation IndyCar race winner Graham Rahal. He's a passionate hockey fan from Columbus, OH so there's plenty of Blue Jackets talk, along with a cool VGK connection late in the interview. Of course IndyCar is front and center: we talk about the new aeroscreen, safety, and what it was like to race for the legendary Paul Newman. Plus plenty more! Enjoy.

    6DMM 32: Jay Weinberg: Slipknot drummer

    6DMM 32: Jay Weinberg: Slipknot drummer

    On this episode I'm joined by Jay Weinberg, the drummer of Slipknot. Long before Jay picked up the drumsticks, his main focus was hockey and goaltending. He grew up in New Jersey loving the Devils during the glory years of the late 90's and early 2000's. Today, Jay lives in Nashville and still plays men's league when not on tour with Slipknot. His big break in music came when he was 17 and asked to join Bruce Springsteen on tour in place of his dad Max, who had prior commitments with the Conan O'Brien show. We talk all things goalie, music, and The 'Knot. m/

    6DMM 31: Neil Little

    6DMM 31: Neil Little

    On this week’s episode I’m joined by Philadelphia Phantoms and RPI Hall of Famer Neil Little. An 11th round selection by the Flyers in the 1991 NHL draft, he spent his entire 10-year career in North America with the organization before heading overseas to finish out. He won two Calder Cups with the phantoms and despite dressing 40 or 50 NHL games, only had 1 start and two appearances. He’s a folk hero in Philadelphia not just for his incredibly consistent goaltending, but also his willingness to mix it up with opponents. One of the true beauties of the game. Enjoy!

Greatest podcast I’ve ever listened too.

Thank you so much for this podcast. As an Australian, we don’t get enough goalie talk. The Todd Brown interview was amazing and even better on the second listen. Is there any chance of a YouTube channel in the future. I think you breaking down new gear and pros gear would be a great watch. Thanks again
