Hello and welcome to Top Shelf, where we keep the hot takes and the hard liquor!
This is a podcast where Michelle Jay and Hannah Bevis have a couple drinks, get a little tipsy, and talk about the biggest stories in women’s hockey. We’ll be talking about a little bit of everything on this podcast from the NCAA to the NWHL and CWHL to U Sports and SDHL and AWIHL and whatever else comes up.
We’re on iTunes now too! You can find us under the Founding Four Podcast channel - currently we’re still sharing a Soundcloud account. We’re going to try and figure out how to get each podcast its own channel, but for now you can find everything there (and really, you should listen to both of them, because they’re both wonderful).
We’ll be recording this podcast weekly, with new episodes going up on Wednesdays (usually).
In this episode, Hannah and Michelle talk about the CWHL’s updated? international rule and the unexpected departure of Annina Rajahuhta, get unexpectedly side-tracked in a tangent about the biggest blowouts in women’s hockey history, manage to get back on track and talk about the Furies upset over Les Canadiennes, and discuss the Riveters close call and the NWHL’s All-Star roster. We also play #StumpHannah and answer a couple mailbag questions.
This is a long one. It’s because we spent the better part of half an hour yelling about Bulgaria. We didn’t mean to. It just happened. It’s worth it.
If you want to ask a question that we might answer in our mailbag, tweet it at us @Hannah_Bevis1 and @michelle_jay3 and use the hashtag #TopShelfMailbag, or message our Tumblr.
(A note, there IS some swearing on this podcast. We try to keep it PG, but...you know).
