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).
In this episode, we start by talking about Katie Burt’s new NCAA record and where she might fit into Team USA’s future, the craziness that is the CWHL’s standings and Amanda Makela (and where the Clarkson Cup will be!), and whether Brittany Ott’s outstanding save makes up for the fact that Boston still lost. Michelle pulls out an obscure #StumpHannah question, Hannah and Michelle talk about their favorite cereals, and we also sing the Backstreet Boys for most of the podcast.
And here’s the hit from Taylor Marchin.
With the new Players’ Safety Guidelines effective Feb 1, the CWHLPA sincerely hopes that @theCWHL reconsiders the ruling on the Kosta hit. We do not condone this type of action and hope the CWHL will seriously consider the implications to players’ safety set by this precedent. pic.twitter.com/mRuC0SJnVN— CWHLPA (@CWHL_PA) January 28, 2018

(A note, there IS some swearing on this podcast. We try to keep it PG, but...you know).
