The Suspendables is a weekly podcast with former NHL star Russ Courtnall and his pal, comedian Jungle Jim Jerome. Listen in for classic, hilarious NHL stories; great discussion on the hottest NHL news; and interviews with some of hockey's biggest names. A new episode every Wednesday morning.
226: College or NO College!
Russ answers the questions of how does one know if they should skip school and stay in Junior?
The now viral slap shot into the empty net...not sure I like Cournall's take on this...
Do we like Corey Perry?
And we go inside Rusty's life...
225: SO I’M WAITING FOR THE PUNCHLINE...AND…NOTHING!
Cuz Rusty tells us he goes to church…I fear we’ve lost him...
Not on your life folks…I’ll get him back to the dark side in no time. The problem is he knows they serve wine so he goes back to communion 9 times.
Also…Check out the skills competition from 30 years ago to what happened this past weekend…You’re gonna be very very surprised
Courts gives us a good look into who perhaps has the biggest effect on changing the the game…it ain’t who or what you think it is.
And our second instalment on “IS RUSS’s life story worth telling?”
224: Rinks, Risks, & Reminiscences
Russ has returned!
He shares some stories from his week off...cigars were involved...go figure!
Jungle plugs his latest endeabour, offering some insight into Rusty's early years, his family, and his career.

223: NICE GUYS FINISH...FIRST?!
What a refreshing take this athlete has on life and how to do things…Darcy Hordichuk was our guest and he made Jimmy cry!
He was one of the toughest guys to ever play the game and he knew his role, but some of his answers about fighting are going to surprise you!
Darcy joins us to share his life lessons, stories from his NHL career, and to discuss his latest endeavour, Canada to USA.The company offers expert cross border services exclusively for Canadians in the United States.

222: Let's break it down!
Oilers vs Sens and the complete opposite happening with new head coaches.
Russ’s take on the All Star game.
Getting traded is tough especially when it comes to the personal side...Courtnall went through it 5 times.
Theyre starting to compare McDavid to you know who...Is that really fair?
The saga of daughter Sydney’s rental in Phoenix continues and it’s hilarious!
221: CAREFUL WHAT YOU ASK, JIMMY!
Jim goes rogue and strays from the usual hockey talk to call up his ol' buddy Rusty for some advice...
AND Russ's wife, the wonderful Paris, jumps on to offer some truly valuable insight on how she's put up with Rusty for more than THREE DECADES!
(wait a second...a bald dude, life advice...what the hell is this...Dr. Phil?!)
*Note from producer - We have moved to a new recording platform for improved sound quality, which has unfortunately led to difficulties when separating audio tracks. We apologize in advance for any skewed audio quality!
It’s a great podcast. Probably my second favorite. Without question Sean Avery’s No Gruffs Given is clearly number 1 because he’s got the guts and the character to actually speak out against the corrupted narrative that is Covid.
Well done. Best pod out there, wish you did it more. Better than Chiclets, 31 Thoughts. It’s just a great hour of talking about life with a touch of hockey. Former WMU hockey alum, like Rusty’s kid.
Love the stories and the back and forth chemistry these clowns have. Great trips down memory lane and nice guest interviews as well. My favorite podcast hands down!
