@ Toronto Mike,

This is just what I expected from James. For someone who has worked with him on a number of events over the years, he's just as humble on-air as he is off-air. Down to earth, one of the guys, etc, etc. You could tell and hear it in his voice about the passing of Rick (who was absolutely loved by everyone at TSN that I ever talked too) and the horrible situation that happened in Ottawa all those years ago.

Just a good conversation - it's what I like about your podcast. It also sounded really good too ;)

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike

This was the first time I ever met James Duthie, but he drove all the way from Aurora to spend two hours with me and he was gracious, humble and a pleasure to talk with. He's authentic.

I just finished this one and really enjoyed it. I had to laugh at the part where you guys talked about almost crying during movies on a plane. You don't have to feel ashamed, it's actually a thing that has been written about quite a bit. There have even been studies done to try to figure out why it happens.

I just listened to this episode last night on my drive home from work. Another great one. James was a great guest.

I actually found the broadcast he talked about (Immediately after Brian Smith's death)

It begins at the 40:17 Mark

Hope you don't mind me bringing old episodes back up to the top. I'm just listening to them now, and I listen in no particular order.

Not only do I not mind, but I love it!

If you also tweet about older eps I can RT the tweet and bring some awareness to the archives.
