Carolyn and Merrin are joined by Holly Hollenbeck of the Dallas Stars Twitterati and noted dog lover. They talk aborted trades, scoring depth, Disney princesses, minor league baseball, and good dogs*. Merrin eats questionable pizza, Carolyn knows what she did, and Jason Spezza metes out karmic retribution.
Chris Watkins of Hockey Graphs joins Carolyn & Merrin to discuss all the happenings of Day 1 of Free Agent Frenzy. They chat Carter Hutton Watch, dynasties, what Roman Polak brings to the Stars, startling Stan Bowman, and Jim Benning goes to White Castle.
Carolyn & Merrin are joined by special guest Hannah Stuart of theScore. Hannah talks about the upcoming NHL Draft, asserts that the Stars can’t mess it up, and becomes an unwilling participant in some shenanigans. Plus, tips on avoiding perjury when talking about concussions, Montreal loses a trade on multiple levels, and Ottawa does The Most. What’s going on in Brett Ritchie’s bedroom? On second thought, we don’t want to know.
It’s June and at least one Texas team is still playing hockey! Carolyn & Merrin talk Todd Nelson hire, the Stanley Cup Final and Calder Cup Final. Plus, self-shaming, dubious definitions of salad, and Anne of Green Gables fanfic. It’s an episode that doesn’t care, but with force.
Congrats again to our big winner, Jada, who is taking home two tickets to the NHL Draft & Chase Rice concert. And thank you SO MUCH to everyone who donated to Donors Choose. It’s a great organization, and I urge you to keep in mind if you do monthly charitable giving.
It’s another semi-live podcast! That is, if we ever get out of the open. Featuring: Rick Wilson’s retirement, divine brownies, hard playoff choices, and critical dicks. Forget FMK, we invent a new game specifically for the Dallas Stars.
(Minor Infinity War spoilers from 7:54 – 9:18)
Want to win two tickets to the NHL Draft and Chase Rice concert in Dallas? All you have to is go to DonorsChoose.org, make a donation of any size to any classroom, and email or tweet us proof! We’ll draw a winner on June 1! The Draft is June 22-23.
The great Jimening is upon us! All hail Jim! The Dallas Stars have a new head coach, Carolyn has mic issues (we’re sorry!), Merrin goes on an HGTV bender, and why wasn’t that the storyline in Avengers: Infinity War? Plus, playoffs, leafy greens, and, of course, non-consensual licking.
Back from vacation, Carolyn and Merrin talk bad drafts, checkered pasts, eating lunch with Jesus, alt-right burgers, pop stars, and secret Disney stans. Merrin fails at Name That Actor and Carolyn fails at naming anything. It’s the podcast that finally asks: why are you even here?
Note: While Merrin calls out Dennis Haysbert to play Jim Nill, she was cruelly tricked by the google, and meant JK Simmons. See the image below. Dennis Haysbert is a fine actor, and we are sure he can grow an excellent mustache should he wish.
Ironically, neither of these men represent Statefarm.
