Business has picked up at the World Men’s Curling Championship and Kevin brings the latest on the logjam at the top of the standings (1:30) from inside the Calgary bubble. Kevin and Warren explore potential format changes for future world championships with continued expansion (9:00) and answer a couple of fan e-mails (19:00) about increasing scoring and having spares for mixed doubles.
Curling analyst and coach Mike Harris joins the podcast (28:00) from the bubble with his thoughts on the men’s worlds. The 1998 Olympic silver medallist also explains the differences in training between teams he’s coached in China, Scotland and Switzerland plus how those countries bring up young players through the system. Mike also breaks down an average day broadcasting at the Winter Olympics and takes a shot at the age-old question: Why are so many curlers also good at golf?
