Well, not entirely shameless promotion … I came across the Canadian Podcast Buffet who play promos from well, … Canadian Podcasts. Bob and Mark of the CPB request that worthy Canadian podcasters send in a 120 second, 128Kbps, .mp3 format Podcast Promo.
I dutifully followed their instructions and here’s the result for those of you who don’t get enough Canucks Outsider:
Canucks static montage Plus updates on Giants playoff series versus Prince George Cougars, B.C. Women’s Championship, Winter Olympic flag ceremony, and an unusual amount of housekeeping details where Dave pimps his other podcasts, encourages listener participation and schelps Bryght websites.
Canada’s Governor General Michaëlle Jean (a Haitian refuge who immigrated to Quebec as a child) and Mayor Sam Sullivan (suddenly, the world’s second most famous quadrapelegic) were on hand with a phalanx of officers of everykind to reveal the 1952 Oslo Winter Olympic flag.
I attended and watched the pageantry (recording some clips for a future podcast) and asked VANOC CEO John Furlong a few questions on a snowy Vancouver morning. See more pics on my Flickr photostream.
Blurb: Canada’s Governor-General, Michaëlle Jean (a Haitian refuge who immigrated to Quebec as a child), and Mayor Sam Sullivan were on hand – with a phalanx of officers of every kind – to reveal the 1952 Oslo Winter Olympic flag.

In post-Olympic hangover mode, host Dave Thorvald and Dan Funboy gear up for the stretch run of the Canucks season by talking about defensemen injuries and call-ups, impending trade deadline, and goalie ideas as Dave dozes off to some bluesy jazz riffs.

Topics include: Bertuzzi’s desire, Olympic speculation, faceoff woes, Latvian fans, vodka, Dave’s SLC 2002 photodiary, plus look ahead to games versus Blue Jackets, Blues and more.
Dave Thorvald and Dan Funboy – chillaxing with beers at Olympia’s Eastside Club – comment on the Montreal blowout, current roadtrip , scheduling curiosities, goalie performances, Sens Underground, the Turin Winter Olympics hockey tournament, ski races, and jumping.
In-game as the Canucks beat the Buffalo Sabres, Dave in his Kansas City Blades jersey discusses injuries and line-up changes, silent auctions, east-coast Canucks fans, all-star centre Artem Chubarov, wins vs Pens and Isles and loss to Devils, and mentions of Sens Underground podcast and thrifty Last Seat tickets.
