Addressing Inequality ft. Erin Flowers

Kevin and Warren clear up some confusion from last week’s episode about the differences between touching running and stationary stones plus why ending games early in high-performance events is problematic compared to the recreational level. We also answer a few fan questions about players caught swearing on a hot mic, why teams still raise brooms after bad shots and more. 

Goldline Curling president Erin Flowers joins to talk about her company’s new United We Curl broom series designed to promote diversity and inclusion in the sport. We discuss what sparked the initiative, the reaction from curlers and fans, and the importance of listening to the lived experiences of the racialized community. Flowers also shares how Goldline Curling has weathered the storm through the COVID-19 pandemic, and how the company’s future relies on the grassroots game. 

This podcast is produced by Warren Hansen and Jonathan Brazeau, mixed and sounded designed by Andrew Holland, and hosted by Kevin Martin, Warren Hansen, and Jim Jerome. Additional editing support by Amil Delic.
