Flames Hi I'm Mike and I have a podcast

Hey, you all know me as Scorp but I'm Mike and I've recently started another quarantine project: a podcast. Despite the show not being exclusively about sports, I've arranged a couple cool guests from Sportsnet to feature in a big segment on one of my first shows: Ryan Leslie and Eric Francis.

I'm sick of talking about old games and all that — there's so much intrigue surrounding what remains of the season and free agency and the draft and the future of this hockey club. So I want to have a great hockey conversation with these two and I look forward to sharing it with you. I'm going to try and make the segment resemble one I would love to listen to on the radio.

I have a lot of Flames and hockey topics I want to discuss but I'm also looking to you guys to potentially provide some questions for me to ask Ryan and Eric. We're scheduled to record in a few days so there's plenty of time to suggest some topics for the show. Also, I'd love some other suggestions for potential guests — I'd love to talk sports with all sorts of people on the show... unless this episode goes poorly, in which case, what podcast?

The episode with Eric and Ryan is scheduled to come out May 11. For now I have a teaser episode out if you want to give it a listen. You can find it on iTunes at the link above, and it's also on Google Play, Spotify, and SoundCloud.

-Mike

The episode with Ryan and Eric won't be out till Monday the 11th. Future episodes will be released weekly every Monday. I decided to structure releases like that to start the week off right.

The only episode up right now is my teaser episode, which, in all honesty, I recorded before I knew either Ryan or Eric or anyone from the media would agree to be on the show. It kinda posits the show exclusively as a comedy venture, which, if you know me, would be somewhat ill-advised. It's still going to be something of a wacky variety show but I plan on making sports more of a main focus as opposed to the peripheral topic I originally planned it to be.

The structure of the show is, as of right now, going to be laid out in two halves. The first half (30-ish minutes will cover fun little bite-sized topics I found throughout the previous week before recording. It will (hopefully) be entertaining and funny. The second half of the show will alternate between being a big sports segment or movie segment, depending on how I feel every week/how guests line up.

And who knows — maybe when sports come back, it transitions into a full-on sports show. That's the beauty of managing your own medium. But I started it just as a thing to try and entertain my friends, first and foremost, hence the additional focus on weird niche topics.

Ryan and Eric are both a hoot. Looking forward to it.

Ah shoot you got the quote in. I'm clearly blind and immediately realized I'd totally misread the release date thinking it was out.

Wow that’s a pretty good get scorp on those 2 doing the pod cast. Unlike many on CP I actually like Francis. Think he is great in interviews. Sure he has some click bait/ rile me up comments but for the most part I agree with a lot of what he says.

I would ask Francis why he only thinks flames will kick tires on Hall? He did state because of backend but I don’t buy it. I think flames will take a serious run on acquiring him. Also like to hear Leslies thoughts on it

One more day. Come for the hockey talk, stay to hear Leslie and Francis dissect the Fan 960 chocolate bar bracket.

It completely ruins the vision of TheScorpion I had in my mind.

I would like to comment on the intro show. As an American that knows what "Smarties" are and knows they are trash compared to "True King of Candy", M&M's, I have decided to boycott your show.

I'm Canadian and feel anyone who thinks Smarties are better than M&Ms must have something wrong with their tastebuds....... same with anyone who drinks Pepsi

Coke>Pepsi but Diet Pepsi>Diet Coke. Dr. Pepper is the one soda to rule them all though.

Adding Dr. Pepper into the equation is like adding Reese's Pieces into the M&Ms and Smarties debate; both are a solid #2

Agree.with the M&Ms comment, especially if you include the peanut M&Ms
