A hockey podcast that doesn’t talk about last night’s scores. The BarDown podcast will investigate, uncover and explore long-form stories at the intersection of sports, pop culture, technology. We’re answering the hockey questions that no one asked.

Jesse and Luca have taken over the Pod and with no NHL hockey until the new year, they’re FIRED up about the World Juniors. With names like Alexis Lafrenière, Jack Hughes, and Kaapo Kakko potentially playing in this year’s tournament, could this World Juniors be the best of all-time?
NHL 21's Mysterious Internet Coin Market
After Corwin's EA account was banned for suspicious behaviour, him and DZ made a couple calls to get more familiar with the "Ultimate Team" coin markets in video games like NHL 21, FIFA 21 and Madden 21. They learn more about the tens of millions of dollars being spent on virtual video game currency, how sophisticated this market has become and the hackers who have infiltrated the games' servers.
He Cut Off His Toes To Play Hockey?
BarDown asked their followers to DM them their best hockey stories. Some of them were so good that Corwin and DZ called them up to hear it for themselves.
Why Nike Left Hockey
Nike made equipment for some of the most legendary players in the NHL, but then all of a sudden, they vanished from the sport. To find out where they went and why they ventured into hockey in the first place, Daniel and Corwin make a couple calls to former Nike employees.
The Real Event That Inspired Goon 2
The Goon franchise will forever be recognized as one of the most memorable additions to a short list of hockey's cult classic films, but not many people would identify the movies for their realism. Maybe more will after hearing from the creator of the Battle of the Hockey Enforcers, Darryl "Beef" Wolski.
Infamous Hockey Logos
Believe it or not, the NHL originally hated one of the league’s most popular team logos. We spoke to the designers of some of the most controversial hockey logos of all time.

I hope Corwin is able to track Wayne down one of these days.
I can listen to them talk about equipment for hours. And this review is my official request for a 2 hour Talkin’ Equipment episode
Don't underestimate the journalism !
I don't think I'd want any other two bardown bois but Corwin and DZ to host this podcast, they have the best energy ! Chill but not boring, but most importantly they actually talk about things! This show has really well put together stories each episode that feel thoroughly examined, as well as fun banter, it's a really good balance. Listened to them all pretty quickly, already loved bardown, hard to find other hockey content this good.
