For Kicks, Episode 80: Canada wins gold and we say goodbye
And just like that, Canada are Olympic gold medal champions.Wow. Just ... wow. It's not like us to have trouble finding words, and yet.This episode was tough for us to do justice. Beating the USA for the first time in 20 years. Winning Olympic gold in a nerve-wracking and challenging final. Our final episode. These are all such Big Deals for us. But, like always, we we sat down and started talking about what we love—the Canadian women's national team.We admit, it feels like absolute poetry we had the privilege of ending on this glorious high note. In this episode, we talk about:- the semi-final match vs. USA- the final gold medal match vs. Sweden- what we hope for the future of this team and this sport- and finally, we make a call to action to anyone who loves this game and feels like they have something to share; your voice is no smaller than ours so if you've been thinking about sitting down in front of a podcasting microphone (not even a very good one, ours was terrible for the first few years) our advice is to just do it.For Kicks is a proud member of the Alberta Podcast Network.
