We’re back! This is sort of how the podcast is going to work this year – every week guaranteed (usually Tuesdays), but we’ll add additional ones when the right topics and guests come up. Today, we were pleased to be joined by Elliotte Friedman.

Friedman puts together the excellent “30 Thoughts” column for CBC, does the Hotstove, and is a panelist on Hockey Night in Canada.

Today we went through his last 30 Thoughts and talked about:

* And more
