About 50 Years Ago In Hockey

The 50 Years Ago in Hockey Podcast appears each Friday, and follows the basic format of our news articles - that is to say, it will contain news and features from 50 years ago, but with more detail and analysis. For patrons, we'll present “premium content” episodes.

The premium content podcasts will contain features on players and issues from 50 years ago and interviews with personalities from the hockey and sports worlds.

Some of those who will be appearing are former Maple Leaf goalie Ed Chadwick, broadcaster Jim Tatti, Leafs play-by-play voice Joe Bowen, retired Globe & Mail journalist David Shoalts and a host of other authors, former players and folks connected with sport.

Focus of the premium podcasts will be, of course, on the guests themselves. But we’ll also try and link how events from 50 years ago compare to and even influence things that take place today. And we won’t limit ourselves to strictly events and issues from the time period we normally would cover. We will discuss the entire spectrum of hockey history, as well as socially relevant issues of today and what changes have taken place with those issues over the past 50 years.
