In the winter of 2012, Elan, armed with an endless arsenal of fantasy hockey questions and Brian huddled under a blanket at his kitchen table more than 10000 km away (6000 miles, for the Americans), the Keeping Karlsson hockey podcast was born.

At the time, we never could have known how much fun we were about to have, and how many hockey fans around the world that we were about to connect with. And it's thanks to our audience and supporters that Elan has continued to get Brian's advice on all his fantasy hockey teams since then. Still not sure what's in it for Brian, though..

As time went on some of our patrons started creating high quality fantasy hockey content of their own and in 2019 we grew our podcasting network to share all this great content with the world. Ben Burnett and Lewis Ezekiel joined the main podcast feed to release Short Shift episodes twice a week on Wednesday and Friday mornings. And two spin-off podcasts were created, Dave Betten's Stream Scheme and Marcas Ó Callanáin's Stat Attack. Who knows what will come in the future!

Our community of patrons is amazing. The cabal of Keeping Karlsson supporters are a knowledgeable, dedicated and hilarious group all bound together by their enjoyment of passion for obsession with fantasy hockey. By becoming a patron, you're not only getting access to our patron-exclusive perks or giving us reason to dream up new ideas to grow and evolve the show. You're also letting us know that we should keep pumping out brand new episodes, packed to the brim with hockey content, each and every week.

Perk Descriptions

Keeping Karlsson Patrons-only Facebook Group
The dedicated spot where Brian and Elan are constantly answering fantasy questions more thoroughly and more frequently than anywhere else. You'll also be tapping in to the totally brilliant patron hivemind, talking shop 24/7/365 with all the other die-hards in the Keeping Karlsson patron community including Keeping Karlsson patron celebs like Ben, Lewis, Jade, Dave, Marcas, and other names you'll likely recognize from various guest appearances over the years.
Live Show Recordings
Every Sunday, Elan and Brian stream their weekly show live on the Facebook group. Patrons can watch live and be involved in the show via the real time chat.

Monthly Patroncasts

A patrons-only, mid-week bonus episode at the end of each month where Elan and Brian answer every single patron question thrown at them! You can also join the episode live to get your answers on the spot. You'll also get access to the KK Archives that hold all previous bonus-patron shows.

Weekly Saturday Morning Streams
A patron-only, live Saturday morning bonus episode where two members of the Keeping Karlsson network take your questions before the big Saturday slate of games.

Show Notes and Live Script, aka 'The Doc'
Believe it or not, Elan and Brian aren't quite brilliant enough to speak off-the-cuff about every player's linemates, stats and analysis for 90 minutes. So, every week, they build 'The Doc' -- master notes that hold the key info for each episode. The Doc has all the big questions and news items that Elan has gathered all week long, along with Brian's corresponding research and answers presented on the show.

Keeping Karlsson Ultimate Patron Fantasy League invitation
The KKUPFL is the world's most fun and competitive fantasy league, painstakingly designed by Elan and Brian featuring Champions-league style promotions and relegations. Manage a team and see how you stack up against Elan, Brian and the rest of the best poolies in the world. See the full set of KKUPFL rules here. Now that the season has started, you can sign up to join the  KKUPFL owner waitlist. Once on the waitlist you might be asked to take over the team of an owner who needs to be replaced at some point during the season.
