We Bee Going To Coventry

Listen to the show right here.

Well, not content with being winning the League, those little upstarts have swatted the Bees and have secured their spot in the hockey jamboree next weekend!

The Bees are a persistent lot and, whilst many were anticipating a goal deficit or maybe a draw on the away leg, most were predicting a win.

The Bees put up the sort of fight that kept people guessing throughout though and it was not settled until the last 10 minutes of the 120 minutes.  That, ladies and gentlement, is what playoff hockey is made of.

So, the time for the road tip of the year is upon us and we'll be facing the Swindon Wildcats on the Saturday.  That's no easy ask, especially after they knocked-out the MK boys on their "home" ice.  It is, really in every sense, on.

And what of the podcast?

I Hope You Like Interviews!

I hope you like interviews because that's what we have for you this week.  Listen right here.

We had yet another attack of the tech gremlin that lives in our recording devices.  I think that my Yamaha recorder may be retiring just like some Peterborough fans say Tony Hand should.

Anyway, we are joined on the show (for the first time!) by Jacob Corson-Heron as we talk playoffs, places on the bench, ice time and coaching.  This is a very honest and open interview from the winner of the 2014 Unsung Hero Award at Phoenix.  At the podcast, we think he deserves it so much that it might as well have been made for him.

We also have a bit of a chat with Anna from PTV and we catch up with Treeve Sperrin of Sperrin Brewery to find out all about the rather exciting Fiery Phoenix real ale that awaits us on Spon Street, Coventry.

We'd also like to take a minute or two to introduce you to the guys and girls at 123-reg.co.uk and to tell you how to get onto them for your website and domain needs.

Oh, yeah!  And WE WON THE BLOOMIN' LEAGUE!

Moving things along a bit....

We are pleased to announce that we have been making some changes at Podcast Towers.

Our friends at 123-reg.co.uk are going to dig their hands into their pockets whenever one of you lovely listeners visits us and then visits them to buy something.

We hope the use whatever we earn to put into keeping the show running and making the show bigger and better, whether it's by more live shows, better effects or something else.  Anything that's left over, we'll push in the direction of the Phoenix Foundation.  We make no profit from it.

We use 123-reg.co.uk for buying domains (just like phoenix-podcast.com) and they represent good value from a company based in the UK.  In fact, they are the largest domain registrar and hosting provider.

So, if you are thinking of starting a new fan blog, podcast or just a shop to sell mail-order bara brith, get your domain at 123-reg.co.uk.

They don't just deal in domain names either.  They can host and help you set-up your new website (whatever it's for) and they can even sort you out with an email address that's a bit more personal to you than Gmail, Yahoo or Hotmail.

Another Banner On Our Wall

Listen to the show right here.

As the Phoenix stormed to their second EPL League Title, the Ice Dome rumbled like an irritated juggernaut and a proper hockey battle unfolded before the assembled masses.

What was witnessed was a truly immense game from both teams and a demonstration of what grit, determination and bloody-mindedness can do when it wears a hockey jersey.

Assuming that you are still breathing and that your eyes and ears are not bleeding, you make it through to the final throws of this epic EPL season...

As Bison take their Cup victory and Phoenix snare the League Title, there is one more bit of tin left on the shelf and both these mammoth performers will want a double.  What comes next is a warm up weekend for a clash of the giants in the 2014 Playoffs.

Wowser!

3 Games, 6 Points

Listen to the show right here.

There's not much you can say when your team has played 3 games across 3 days and has won them all.  That's some ask, especially at this point in the season.

The League title is tantalisingly close and only Bison can really stop the Phoenix lifting the Cup.  Things are looking good for the playoffs too.

In short, there's everything to play for and there's no better motivator than that.

This week's battles are here, summed-up in 38 minutes.

Also, Stuart tries his hand at producing...

Saturday night will see Phoenix dealing with the Flames (after a tough away stint in Peterborough).  Then the new kid with the cool trainers will be attempting to get revenge against Phoenix on the Sunday night away jaunt to Telford.

Finally, congrats to Jacob Corson-Heron for his MOM award tonight :-)

Enjoy the show!
