There’s no better way to kick off the new year than with... Ian Mendes sliding into the DMs to request an appearance on your podcast? In episode Derick Brassard, we break from tradition to give you a full hour of conversation with the newest member of The Athletic: former TSN 1200 host and two-time Ottawa Lynx mascot, Ian Mendes.

Ian joins the show to talk about diversity in Ottawa sports media, the state of Sens fandom in 2021, and of course his new job covering the Ottawa Senators at The Athletic!

The music this week was gladstone avenue by fisher park off the Bytown Tapes.
