Mike Gould Talks
Episode 3: Recipes for Success (feat. Ryan Pike)

Episode 3: Recipes for Success (feat. Ryan Pike)

May 25, 2020

Mike Gould (@miketgould on Twitter and Instagram) is back to talk about hockey (again) on his (theoretically) wide-ranging podcast. But it was either that or talking about unappetizing soda-based recipes, and... wait, you mean this episode has those, too? Oh, bother.

This episode features Professional Hockey Writers' Association member and Flamesnation.ca managing editor Ryan Pike (@RyanNPike on Twitter). He and Mike spend over an hour discussing the Flames of the past, present, and future, debating prospect trajectories and projecting next year's roster. Ken Wregget is mentioned.

A note from Mike: "I would like to express my deepest sympathies to the families of Capt. Jennifer Casey, Fred Willard, Jerry Stiller, and all those in the world currently suffering in these trying times, whether from illness, poverty, or otherwise. You are all in my thoughts."

After last week's marathon opening episode, kick back for a shorter experience as Mike Gould (@miketgould on Twitter and Instagram) dives deep into some seriously dumb subjects:

- The McDonald's burger menu - Missing apostrophes - Fruit biology - The six degrees/feet of social distance separation

This episode is guestless. That's right: Mike goes solo for nearly an hour, with varying results. Your mileage may vary. Feel free to stop at a gas station if you need some energy drinks to get through the whole thing.

Join Mike Gould (@miketgould on Twitter, Instagram, and/or GeoCities) as he debuts his wide-ranging podcast covering at least three of the following topics:

- A nearly-forgotten '90s Disney movie starring James Woods - The expansive world of North Korean architectural oddities - Why your chocolate tastes are WRONG - Sports, as if those even exist nowadays

This episode introduces three amazing guests. Sportsnet's Ryan Leslie (@SNRyanLeslie on Twitter) and Eric Francis (@EricFrancis) join Mike to talk about the disrupted National Hockey League season and the implications the pause will have on Mike's hometown Calgary Flames. But first, Mike chats with an old friend from the Maritimes about the reported Russo brothers-led remake of the frequently-maligned 1997 Disney movie "Hercules."

Episode Zero: Welcome To Mike Gould Talks

Episode Zero: Welcome To Mike Gould Talks

April 28, 2020

Welcome to the offbeat and unexpected world of "Mike Gould Talks." Episode Zero is meta to the max — the only talking herein is itself about the art of talking. Get ready for unscripted introductions and the odd bad/dad joke.

This is not an "official" episode. It's a brief introduction to the show and should not be listened to as a perfect representation of what to expect when Epsiode 1 drops on May 25, 2020. Episode Zero is a teaser, plain and simple.

This episode contains excerpts from the song "As I Was Saying" by Canadian artist Lee Rosevere. This song can be found here: https://leerosevere.bandcamp.com/album/music-for-podcasts-4. Rosevere's work falls under Creative Commons licensing, the details for which can be found here: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/.
