If this podcast sounds a little muffled, blame the upfronts. Fleeing Wednesday’s Shaw press event, I ducked into what I thought was a hotel parking entrance off Yorkville when CHML producer Jacob Smith reached me on mobile. A burly security dude chased my back into construction hell just as Scott Thompson opened with hockey talk.
Scott asks if NBC is happier than Sportsnet about a Tampa Bay-Blackhawks Stanley Cup final and I try to sound informed.
We get around to the upfronts and start with the Sportsnet-TSN “We’re No. 1” blather. Scott asks why there are so many darts and poker shows on TSN and not more NASCAR events. I make a note to ask this at Thursday’s Bell 2015-16 preview.
Then I run down all the shows featuring beautiful young people in tights and capes comin’ atcha this fall. Scott asks what to watch next week and I’m completely stumped.
