Howdy, I’m Clayton Hansler. I’ve been working in film, television and sports for 15 years now - but you probably know me as either being that annoying AHL guy or the dude that created a soccer documentary series. I've befriended some of the most talented, smart, creative and funny people along the way and this podcast is a conversation between myself many of them... or some people that I'm meeting for the first time. The guests are usually people way more popular than me and their stories are pretty darn awesome. So I invite you to join in on the conversation for an hour each week, and don’t forget your earmuffs (the podcast isn’t always PG).

    On The Phone: Casey Bannerman

    Casey Bannerman (caseybannerman.com) is on the phone to chat with Clay about creativity during COVID. We're all feeling the press, the question is how are we finding ways to release it? Casey is one of Toronto's preeminent sports designers having worked around the NBA with several players and teams, but has always kept a soft spot for the hometown Raptors team. The two discuss left over feelings following the Raps second round playoff exit, the outpouring of love for Pascal Siakam, and all those COVID catch phrases like 'unprecedented times' that we're sick of hearing.

    On The Phone: Julie Stewart-Binks

    Joining Clay on the phone is Julie Stewart-Binks (Drinks With Binks) all the way from her teenage bedroom at her mom's place. When she's not writing and producing either of her two shows on FUBO TV, Julie likes to spend her time fighting COVID, documenting the construction outside her apartment window, and casually taking a Havard course in US politics. The two catch up and discuss Julie's appetite for knowledge and her continual growth and desire to push her own limits.
