Periodical Podcast October 24th: Russ Rizzo,, NHL, Sabres, Flyers

Heading into the 2017-2018 season, we decided to change up the format of the Whyhockey Periodical Podcast, and how we deliver the audio. Instead of an hour plus long cornucopia podcast that touches on NHL happenings and the teams we follow (Flyers, Panthers), we decided to break the podcast into 3 ‘periods’ files and post separately (hey, our podcast  name still works!). Our hope is that this will make it easier for you, the listeners, to hear what you want and not have to skip around a long audio file to find it. If you like the whole sha-bang, don’t worry. In our posts on the website, we will continue to put them all together in one spot (as you will see below).

The Tragically Hip Songs used:

“50 Mission Cap”

“In Sarnia”

“Tired as Fuck” (Live from Vancouver 2016)

“Wheat Kings”
