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. Usually we talk 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.
But this is a special episode! This is our gold medal game extravaganza!
We were inspired by Katie Nolan’s Super Bowl episode of her podcast “Sports?” Nolan, a die-hard Patriots fan, and Ashley, her producer and an Eagles fan, recorded themselves at the Super Bowl during and after key moments.
While Hannah and Michelle weren’t in the same place, they stayed on a Skype call for the whole game (Thank god for WiFi). Hannah then edited together the best parts for your listening pleasure. We screamed, we laughed, Hannah cried, Michelle tried to not fall asleep.
We’re on iTunes too! You can find us under The Ice Garden Podcast channel - a channel we share with The Founding Four. We also share a Soundcloud account (but we do have our own Top Shelf playlist on it now). 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 also have a Patreon now! Rewards for patrons include bloopers and outtakes (which will be a plenty with Michelle) and other fun stuff!
We also want to see your selfies! Tweet out a photo of where you listen to the podcast with the hashtag #TopShelfie. Hopefully, we’ll start getting some podcast merch made that we can give out as prizes for them.
(A note, there IS some swearing on this podcast. We try to keep it PG. It mostly works, but there’s definitely some extra on this episode)
