Top Shelf Podcast Episode 3: Oh, Canada

Hannah sings, Michelle tries to #StumpHannah and we talk everything from the doping in Russia to the Pride’s recent success.

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 Wednesday mornings.

In this week’s episode, Hannah and Michelle talk about the Russia doping scandal and what it means for the Olympics, look at Team USA’s most recent cuts and Team Canada’s latest development roster, and talk about whether the Riveters might finally lose a game and what’s going on with the Toronto Furies. We also have a spirited Slapshots trivia session and a fun mailbag.

If you want to ask a question that we might answer in our mailbag, comment below, tweet at @Hannah_Bevis1 or @michelle_jay3 using the hashtag #topshelfmailbag, or message our Tumblr.

(A note, there IS some swearing on this podcast. We try to keep it PG. It mostly works.)
