A few weeks back I was a special guest on the podcast “That Thing You Like” to discuss Strip Search — a reality show about webcomics. (My love of “advanced stats” also goes into other realms) In exchange, the hosts of the show: Christopher Baxter (@cbax) and Brian Shirlaw (@brian_rs) agreed to be on the Wages of Wins podcast! Both are natives of Canada and staunch Cannucks fans. In fact, they made some hilarious fan “Commercials” for last year’s NHL playoffs.
As such, we’ll be devoting today’s podcast to, what else, hockey! We’ll hit some of the Stanley Cup playoffs, but also delve into how Canadians name their teams, and which hockey movies are best.
