The BOTW Podcast – episode 55

The 2016/17 season ended and…well, the world apparently exploded.  Since the last podcast we’ve had Doug Clarkson write his open letter to British hockey, the EIHL have gone conference crazy, GB won promotion and now it seems that the EPIHL is well and truly going the way of the dodo as the 7 remaining teams were told to head for the EIHA run “National Ice Hockey League.”

So who better to talk about the NIHL with Anthony than two experts. Carol White, media spokesperson for NIHL 1 North’s Billingham Stars and Pro Hockey News’ NIHL 1 South correspondant and former Streatham and Oxford defenceman, Dave Carr join Anthony so to go over the big issues that the 2nd/3rd/whatever tier of British hockey faces.

Stick your jersey in your backpack as we’re back off on our travels with a Banners On The Road special episode.

Anthony (and his saint of a wife, Emily) recently went to viking country so took along the recorder. In this travel-log episode, we take in a game in Sweden as well as a game in Denmark.  What are gamenights like in Scandinavia? Is it value for money? How does British hockey compare? All this and the ever important rink food review.
