On this week’s Real Life Podcast, the boys spend the hour getting you caught up on all things Oilers, including Don Cherry’s take on the Carolina Hurricanes, the return of Sam Gagner, Bob Nicholson’s interview with Mark Connolly, and a whole lot more.
To start off this week’s episode of the Real Life Podcast, producer Jared blew everyone’s minds when he sneakily slid a new intro in from the one and only Daddy Long Neck. If you don’t know who Daddy Long Neck is then we encourage you to spend more time cruising the weirdness of Instagram because he’s one of the hottest “rappers” in the game right now. Back to business, the guys started off this week’s show with a look at Don Cherry’s comments regarding the Carolina Hurricanes win celebrations and whether or not they’re acting like jerks with their elaborate celebrations. From there, we got in the interview that CBC’s Mark Connolly had with Bob Nicholson and marvelled at Mark’s line of questioning which was about as blunt as we’ve seen from the local media. Some of the topics covered in Connolly’s interview was what kind of feedback the Oilers are getting from fans, who is responsible for Mikko Koskinen’s signing, and whether Peter Chiarelli’s hiring was a mistake. Lastly, the boys finished off the week with a look at The Nation Network as a business and how it’s changed over the years.
