4: Developing The Story: Don Edwards' Battle for Justice

Podcast cover
Read more
In this episode, I'm speaking with Dan Robson, head of features and a senior writer for The Athletic in Canada.

Dan takes us behind the scenes of his story about former NHL goaltender Don Edwards, and his three-decade battle for justice and peace following the murder of his mother and father.

Edwards, a former all-star, has suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder. He has struggled with uncertainty, and he has lost so much of what had been planned in retirement.

Robson attends the parole hearing for the man convicted of the murder. And he leads the reader through what happens next, and what lies ahead for a man — and a family — who has already suffered so much.

3: Developing The Story: Pontus Aberg: One of the NHL's rare single fathers

Podcast cover
Read more
In this episode, I'm speaking with Joshua Kloke, a writer who covers the Leafs and Toronto FC for The Athletic.

Joshua spent time with Maple Leafs prospect Pawn-tus EH-berg, whose climb up the hockey ladder is being made with an unusual twist. The 26-year-old forward from Sweden is one of the NHL's rare single fathers.

Professional hockey is often associated with a life spent on the road, isolated from family by the time commitments of being on a team. Aberg has found a balance. As he tells Joshua of his daughter: “She makes me happy.”

In this episode, I'm speaking with Katie Strang, a senior enterprise and investigative writer for The Athletic.

She dug into a story about recreational drug use in the NHL, with a special focus on players use of cocaine and ecstasy. It is a topic that has been discussed in private among those in the game, where some describe it as the secret that everybody knows.
