    Episode 107: The Life of Charlie Gardiner (Part I) - Winnipeg

    Episode 107: The Life of Charlie Gardiner (Part I) - Winnipeg

    Today we begin a new series on goaltender Charlie Gardiner. We talked about Charlie about forty-or-so episodes ago, but this time we are going far deeper than just his death. This episode covers his early life from Scotland to Winnipeg to Chicago. He grows up playing a myriad of sports, including baseball, rugby, and hockey. We see him turn pro with the Winnipeg Maroons hockey team, which forces him to forfeit his amateur status in all other sports. He meets Myrtle Brooks, the love interest (gotta have one of those, right?) and then, rather suddenly, finds himself on his way out of Winnipeg.

    Episode 104: Of Nightmares (Part I)

    Episode 104: Of Nightmares (Part I)

    In Part I of this harrowing true story, we meet John O'Sullivan, and his son Patrick. John's failures as a hockey player turn him into a living, breathing nightmare of a hockey parent. He demands perfection from Patrick on the ice at every turn. When John doesn't get perfection, he physically abuses Patrick. The older Patrick gets, the worse the abuse becomes. Open-hand slaps become full-on, full-force punches. Patrick quickly finds out that no one is coming to save him; he has to stand up to his father on his own.
