Top Shelf Episode 74: Owners and sponsors and twitch, oh my!


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 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.

Michelle and Hannah chat about a variety of business-related topics, from private ownership of teams to rights fees to sponsors. Plus Michelle details an injury she sustained, and they both struggle to pronounce the name of the Pride owner.

(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)
