Sliding into the Scotties ft. Ted Wyman

The Scotties Tournament of Hearts has been given the green light and the guys run through the field and make their picks to win it all in Thunder Bay. Warren also recaps the world qualification event and which countries are now heading to the world championships. 

The Olympics are a lucrative venture and Warren looks at where the money comes from, where it goes and how the athletes factor into the picture in our Hot Rock Topics. 

Should there be standardized instructions for learning to curl? Our Mailbag segment addresses that and looks at how curling clubs can attract new members. Finally, Warren takes us back in Storytime to a unique event, that awarded two points for covering the button, and what happened to it. 

Postmedia journalist Ted Wyman, who will be heading to Beijing to cover the Winter Olympics, joins the show to talk about the process of getting to the Winter Games, why he loves the game, his favourite curlers to interview, how the mixed zones will be managed at games, the format of the Scotties and Brier, and the biggest changes he’s seen in the sports.

This podcast is produced by Warren Hansen, recorded and mixed by Andrew Holland, and hosted by Kevin Martin, Warren Hansen and Jim Jerome. Production support by Jonathan Brazeau and Amil Delic.
