The Tale of Taro
We interrupt your regularly scheduled programing for a special report.  Hockey fans have probably heard of the fake Buffalo Sabres' draft pick, Taro Tsujimoto, but the story is even deeper than a prank pulled by a PR guy. It's the story of a secret draft caused by paranoia; of a general manager tired of bureaucracy; and yes, of a guy that just loved playing pranks on people.  Join Ian as he tells the story of Taro Tsujimoto from beginning to end.  All music was legally obtained from FreeSound.org and fall under the Creative Commons Zero License.  You can find Paul Wieland's book by clicking here.

Trade Deadline 2020 ft. The Montreal Bias
It's the Trade Deadline! Well, it was. And the gang is back to talk about it in the first ever crossover episode. Along with Zach Vanasse of The Montreal Bias fame, the gang picked some of their favorite trades, some that didn't make a ton of sense and which teams didn't do a lot. And what the hell to General Managers do all day? Plus, an in depth look at he busy day for the New York Rangers and where their franchise is headed.  Oh and Ian yells about the Habs some more.  This is The Nosebleeds (and The Montreal Bias) Podcast!

Episode 52 - My Stolen Pizza
The gang is back and hopefully for good this time! First, some trades! Zucker heads to Pittsburgh, Galchenyuk heads to Minnesota, and the Leafs get a goalie. What's the rest of the market look like? Speaking of goalies, the Rangers have three of them and there needs to be a plan for them after this season.  Plus, Ian yells about the Habs again and the gang plays Two Foods and a Lie.  This is The Nosebleeds Podcast!

Episode 51 - Keep on Rocking in the Free World
The gang is back for the first time in 2020! First, some random, already out of date news. Ian and Trevor went to a Ranger game and had a good time. Then, Tie Domi said nice things about women's hockey and it's a conflicting feeling.  Finally, Ian has a meltdown about the state of the Montreal Canadiens.  This is The Nosebleeds Podcast!

With 49 episodes in the books, Kristen, Trevor, and Ian are joined by the man known in hockey circles as "Fork" and on Twitter as @hockeenight for their 50th episode! We're not even sure what we should put here. Every minute of this is spectacular. Just listen to the episode. And for the the love of god, please realize it is explicit.  This is The Nosebleeds Podcast!

Episode 49 - A Bipedal Tiger Who is Built Like a Fridge
The gang is back and there is absolutely no news. None. Not even one story.  Okay, so there's news.  First, a new beginning; Ian and Kristen are engaged and they talk about the struggles of controlling the message of your own engagement.  Then, an end. Mike Babcock's time in Toronto is up. There's a lot to unpack with this one. Is spitting worse than elbowing? When should the whistle blow for injured players? Finally, the gang breaks down the stars and duds of the Thanksgiving table and puts the cereal mascots in a fight to the death.  This is The Nosebleeds Podcast!

Episode 47 - New Season, Who Dis?
We're back and so is hockey! The gang jumps back behind the mic after the first week of the 2019-20 NHL season! Trevor went to the Rangers' home opener and walked away with some cash. We break down the start to the Rangers' season and the Habs' season, as both teams are off to good starts. The Jets might be screwed without Dustin Byfuglien. Are we able to believe in Florida?

Episode 44 - It's August!
The gang is back with one of the last mid-summer podcasts of the year! First, some drug talk with Evgeny Kuznetsov. Then, the Wild signed a new GM and the gang doesn't have much to say about that. The NHL Network lists are bad, but maybe not as bad as we originally thought. The Lightning are signing everyone and Andrew Luck may be a cautionary tale for athletes.  This is The Nosebleeds Podcast!

The gang is back with an agenda of topics that features significantly less hockey than usual. First, Ian talks about a near death experience he witnessed and did nothing to prevent.

July 13, 2019

Then, a bunch of weird stuff happened in women's hockey this week. Shyam Das continued to make a fool of himself. Phil Kessel might get traded? Again?

Also, Connor McDavid sounds like he might want out of Edmonton and that is just too ridiculous to imagine.  And throughout the episode, the gang watches as the Canadiens' playoff hopes are ended with a Columbus shootout win over the Rangers.  This is The Nosebleeds Podcast!

April 6, 2019
