Ryan came prepared to talk about curling. Jonathan came prepared to talk about dinosaurs. The compromise is an episode where we assign a curler to each of the Top 10 most popular dinosaurs. It is peak summertime content. Plus news from the curling world, including the cancelation of the World Mixed Curling Championship.
Jonathan regales us with tales from the 2019 World Mixed Curling Championships, including the thrilling finishes to the Gold and Bronze Medal games, how the Nigeria and Kosovo teams came to be and whether or not he’s now motivated to return. We also discuss the difference in the World Curling Tour between now and 20 years ago and we give Jonathan the opportunity to respond to all the mean things we said about him while he was away.
We have two special guest hosts this episode: Ontario-turned-England curler Rob Retchless and English junior curler Felix Price. Rob talks changing affiliations to England, Ontario’s curling scene and prioritizing life and family over curling. You may remember Felix from our etiquette episode. He’s back to help Ryan make fun of Jonathan, preview the World Mixed Curling Championship and talk about licking rocks.
