I had the absolute pleasure of having Arpon Basu on the podcast to talk about his new venture to bring The Athletic, the prominent subscription sports journalism service, to Montreal this September, and we got into a wide range of topics.

From what kind of content The Athletic MTL will be, to the challenges it faces in defining itself in both languages, to how the Montreal Canadiens have changed and what to expect next season, to the tragedy in Charlottesville that has shown how serious the Neo-Nazi threat is right now in North America.

Also we talked a little Netflix to bring it back to Ice Level days. We went off on tangents about Subban, Weber, Plekanec, and Pacioretty, and ended up chatting for nearly two hours. Enjoy!

On the podcast this week Arune Singh is back on with me to talk about the first two movies in the Fast and Furious franchise, but before we got into that we needed to talk about P.K. Subban, his personal success, and the perception of him around the NHL.

With the hockey stuff out of the way, we got into two movies from the early 2000’s that frankly, aren’t very good, but spawned a powerhouse franchise. What about them was so special that people were compelled to keep coming back?

On today’s podcast Denis Gorman joined me for a quick hit to talk about the hit that may have taken Sidney Crosby out of the playoffs, and the reaction to it around the NHL from players, fans, media, and Pittsburgh in particular.

We also chatted about the New York Rangers’ series against the Ottawa Senators, and the coming out party of Brady Skjei, then shifted to Nashville to talk about the NHL’s consistent failure to promote P.K. Subban.

This week on the podcast, Marc Dumont from Eyes on the Prize joins me to do some playoff predictions for the second round, and then we go deep into what went wrong with the Canadiens this year, and whether they can recover from it.

We also referenced an article on EOTP from Kyle Medeiros on the Canadiens’ inability to break in drafted players, which you can read here.

Arune Singh joins me once again, and originally we were going to talk about Fox’s X-Men movies this week, but since Logan came out and I haven’t seen it yet, we felt it wouldn’t be right to do it without being completist.

I did however, see John Wick 2, so that’s the topic for this week’s podcast.

Before we got int that though, we had to touch on the firing of Michel Therrien and hiring of Claude Julien, the trade deadline, and the return of P.K. Subban to the Bell Centre.

After a few minutes of hockey, we get right into the John Wick 2 analysis. Beware: Here lie spoilers.

Episode 5 – Arune Singh and Comics

After a couple weeks off to enjoy the holidays, the podcast is back with special guest Arune Singh, former executive director of TV communications for Marvel, and current VP of marketing for BOOM Studios.

Arune is a Habs fan from Toronto now living in Los Angeles, so of course we had to talk about the Montreal Canadiens this season, the trade of P.K. Subban to the Nashville Predators, and feelings about the team going forward.

From there we moved on from hockey to talk comics, touching on Arune’s history with Marvel and love of DC, as well as adaptations from page to screen, small and big.

We debate 90’s cartoons, Fast and the Furious, and our favourite comic runs, before getting into your questions, Netflix suggestions and tips for comics to pick up.

Episode 2 – Robyn Flynn and Feminism

This week on the Andrew Berkshire Podcast, it’s a mini Ice Level reunion as I was joined by Robyn Flynn of TSN 690’s Centre Ice, also a producer at CJAD 800, and the official colour voice (and sometimes play-by-play) of Les Canadiennes de Montreal.

Robyn and I start the podcast with a cathartic discussion about the end of Ice Level, and how the P.K. Subban trade changed our perspectives then and now. We got into women’s hockey and the battle for supremacy between the CWHL and NWHL, when players will be paid living wages, and which league seems to have a better framework going forward.

From there, we shifted to the online harassment of women in sports media and told some horror stories of our own, and talked about the importance of being empathetic with those who experience it, not just shrugging it off.

After that we answered some questions, made Netflix suggestions, and called it a day.
