    The Series Finale featuring Jay Tuohey

    The Series Finale featuring Jay Tuohey

    So this is it. After 4 years and 76 episodes, we have recorded our final episode. Thankfully, we were able to close out the show with Jay returning for the final episode to join Sara and me.
    The first segment focuses on why I am leaving Winging it in Motown after five years, and mostly, why I decided to end the podcast. We talked about the recent horrible events in NHL news that have made me feel this way, and Jay and Sara shared their thoughts about it all.
    We wanted the majority of the show to be fun, though! So the second segment is a look back on our favorite moments from the four years of doing the show.
    The third segment features a few mailbag questions that we sort of answered, but had a lot of fun with. Then we closed out with one final game. I hope you enjoy playing along with Jay and Sara as they try to determine which questions are shocking moments in video game history and which ones I made up in the game “The Shock and the Spurious.”

    Shayna Goldman Returns

    Shayna Goldman Returns

    We are now using Zoom to record, and we have been recording our own audio as well, but this time, I’m just using the Zoom tracks, and it sound pretty similar. Please excuse my blown out voice in the beginning, I accidentally had the automatic level control set for my microphone, and it started way too hot.
    Here’s what we have for you this time (all time locations are without the ads because they are put in after we upload the episode)
    00:00 - Patrick Marleau broke the record for games played. What do we think of that? Will he be in the Hall of Fame? Should he be?
    24:20 - We talk to our amazing guest Shayna Goldman about a lot of stuff, some of it even hockey related. We talk a little about what it is to cover an organization that has some lottery luck, how hard it is to evaluate prospects, and even crazy flavors of Oreos. Plus, we finish with a game!
    58:56 - Robin Lehner spoke out about frustrations with the COVID restrictions in the NHL and how it impacts players with mental health issues. We talk through the multiple issues at play in the discussion that surrounds his comments.

Terrible sound quality

The sound quality was really bad. Hosts would fade in and out; sometimes it sounded like they were next to the mic and other times it was muffled like they were speaking from across the room; had a cell phone with a bad connection in a car quality for at least one speaker.

Meh

Listening to the episode following franzen allegations toward Babcock in regards to abuse and I've never been more annoyed listening to a podcast. Everyone gives their opinions, but how about you actually tell the story of what allegedly happened so I can have an opinion of my own as well. All of your opinions might be great but if I don't have the story I don't care about your opinions. I'm able to listen at work and all this did was make me want to find a new podcast that would say what allegedly went down.
