This week on the show that’s all about prospects (except when it’s not), the editor-in-chief of Elite Prospects J.D. BURKE returns to the show to talk how the order might fall, the depth of the 2019 class, and which prospects Canucks fans should rejoice or cringe if the team picks at 10th. PLUS: The takeaway lessons of a bad Stanley Cup Final, how we were screwed no matter who won, the late-career utility of Edler and Tanev, and memories of our friend Jason Botchford.

This week on the show that may have benefitted from some officiating here and there along the way, SIE MORLEY of Fear The Fin stops by to talk all things San Jose Sharks: their playoff run, the futures of Joe Thornton and Erik Karlsson, and the one weird trick doctors don’t want you to know about how Doug Wilson’s team has remained competitive over two decades. PLUS: Barstool towels, confessing to war crimes, what the heck’s going on with the ECHL’s Kelly Cup trophy, and why no one’s really interested in Blues vs Bruins.

This week on the show here to talk about Bose Horvats and Brock Bozo, former Vancouver sports radio producer / host turned international man of mystery MIKE MARTIGNAGO joins the program for an update on what he’s been up to since going off the grid, the grind of trying to live the dream, Francesco Aquilini’s Twitter, Trevor Linden’s redemption, John Weisbrod’s bizarre resumé, the ongoing scandals surrounding Whitecaps FC, a spirited debate on whether sports newsroom employees are allowed to feel joy over positive results, and an inside scoop on Kawhi’s off-season plans. PLUS: Ralph Rantignago shares his experiences with wage theft, and we share memories of our friend Jason Botchford.

This week on the show that gets it to go, it’s a very special episode as a wide array of guests stop in to answer one question: Where were you last night? Writers, podcasters, artists and fans share their perspectives on The Shot — Kawhi Leonard’s Game 7 buzzer beater to keep the Raptors’ playoff hopes alive. Already an iconic moment in both NBA and Toronto sports history, we break it all down with an examination of the moment. An oral history of The Shot. Joining me to do so are: Sean Woodley, Raptors HQ & Locked On Raptors (0:07:50) Blake Murphy, The Athletic (0:21:23) Max Kerman, Arkells (0:32:53) Andrew Zuber, Yahoo Sports Canada & Sportsfeld (0:40:19) Josh Custodio, bartender & Top Marks (0:53:42) Rob Rousseau, writer & 49th Parahell (1:03:56) Devang Desai, theScore & Open Era (1:28:32) Vyas Saran, Maclean’s & Roxy Fever (1:42:30) Jake Goldsbie, actor & Sportsfeld (1:46:02) Vivek Jacob, Yahoo Sports Canada & Locked On Raptors (2:11:37) Tremendous talents all, and I thank them for their time and stories.

This week on the show that’s still grieving, I reflect a bit on the takeaway lessons of Jason Botchford’s friendship and incredible professional impact, and how I feel changed personally and professionally since his passing. I wanted to put together a tribute show this week collecting stories from people who knew him like I did, and people who knew him better than me. But the timing didn’t feel quite right to do that. I couldn’t bring myself to do it, anyway. Not yet. But I did share my own stories of the man and the way he helped me with CHRIS FABER of CanucksArmy on his podcast, and with his permission have republished that conversation in full with my own introduction. I strongly recommend Faber’s full podcast, talking with Georgia Twiss, myself, Jackson McDonald, J.D. Burke, Harman Dayal, Clay Imoo, Cory Hergott and Ryan Biech. It runs over 5 hours and is as cathartic as it is heart-wrenching. You can find it by searching for Canucks Conversation wherever you get your podcasts. I want to thank Chris for getting me going and allowing me to spill these stories at a time when I did not feel up to talking to anyone about anything. The kid can interview.

UNLOCKED: Real Good Stuff - 17 - First Annual RGS Canucks Summer Summit (with Jason Botchford) In honour of Botch's memory, I wanted to bring this out from behind the paywall so everyone would to be able to hear this. He was a great talent, and a wonderful friend. We will miss him terribly. ||It's an episode that's been years in the making, and it will not disappoint! JASON BOTCHFORD of The Province Sports, the architect of The Provies himself, joins the Real Good Boys as the inaugural guest in the Real Good Studio to talk (what else) -- the Canucks. We get into it about executives around the league reading Jyrki21's comic strip and thinking he must be a former member of Canucks brass, plus understanding Vancouver as a market, the media beatdown the team took in 2011, Dale Tallon vs the Computer Boys, Kyle Dubas, NHL draft lists, Noah Hanifin, and the probability of the team trading its first round pick. And Botch regales with torturous tales of attending his daughters' dance recitals.|| This episode was released on June 4th, 2018. RIP Jason. We love you.
This week on the show that has a show this week, it’s a crossover event for the ages, as the ladies of PUCK BUNNIES, AUDREY & CHRISTINA make their RGS debuts. There is so much hockey to catch up on, and we try to touch it all: the Hurricanes’ improv troupe energy, the Blue Jackets pushing all in, why Jay Beagle is beloved in Washington, the Morgan Rielly thing, and why the Pittsburgh Penguins are the most fascinating team to watch as a Vancouver fan. PLUS: Audrey and Christina discuss their experiences with hockey Twitter’s sexist gatekeepers, we run afoul of Islanders and Leafs fans during the Tavares return game, and we revisit the relic of gendered hockey coverage that was CBC’s While The Men Watch.

Outro Music: “Midnight City”, by M83
This week on the show that was recorded before the Robert Kraft story broke, we go in on owners anyway! 49th Parahell's ROB ROUSSEAU joins the show to talk the Raptors loading up at the deadline, Colin Kaepernick's massive settlement in his collusion case against the NFL, the useless bloodsucking of sports owners, and the way professional sports fandom warps your perception of labour issues. Follow Rob on Twitter: @robrousseau Support the show at www.patreon.com/RealGoodShow New show art and theme song coming soon! Outro Music: "Iafallo You Into The Dark", by Death Cab For Coachie (Justin Morissette)
This week on the show that finally got fired, FlamesNation columnist MIKE PFEIL -- our man on the ground in Edmonton -- joins the show to mourn the loss of the NHL's dumbest GM, and celebrate the legacy of the man who unquestionably ruined the Oilers. PLUS: Why this year's Flames are different, what the NHL got right at this year's All-Star Game, and what it still needs to fix going forward. Meanwhile back at the ranch, a little transcription creates a heap of trouble.

This week on the show that might waive, but then again might not, J.D. BURKE of The Athletic Vancouver stops by the show for a lengthy discussion on where the Canucks are at after the midway point of the season, what they should do about Alex Edler as trade deadline approaches, and how the Edler conversation is over-shadowing some more important decisions the team needs to make either at the deadline or during the off-season. PLUS: Why everyone hates J.D., and getting real about the lifestyle of those trying to break into the current sports media landscape. Follow J.D. on Twitter: @JDylanBurke Support the show at www.patreon.com/RealGoodShow New show art and theme song coming soon! Outro Music: "Hysteria", by Kurt Vile
This week on the show that bombed out in the quarter-finals, sportswriter STEVE EWEN (PostMedia, The Province) stops by to wrap up the World Junior tournament that took over Vancouver to start the new year, and all that talk of junior talent leads to a discussion on the Vancouver Giants, and why you’re unlikely to see hockey ever return full-time to the Pacific Coliseum. PLUS: Lacrosse’s return to downtown! The rise of Vancouver’s basketball culture! And how the Canucks are failing Elias Pettersson. Follow Steve on Twitter: @SteveEwen Support the show at www.patreon.com/RealGoodShow New show art and theme song coming soon! Outro Music: “Missed The Boat”, by Modest Mouse
This week on the show that has singlehandedly killed the UFC, CHICA bassist and Justin’s Top Marks co-host JOSH CUSTODIO stops by the show to make sense of the latest Jon Jones drug test mess and break down an eventful UFC 232 card that helped the company put a positive exclamation point on what had otherwise been a rocky 2018. PLUS: The search for UFC’s great babyface! Amanda Nunes and the future of women’s MMA! How Conor vs Khabib has become The Prestige! And we’re all enjoying dunking on Darren Rovell, but is there some level of truth to his perspective? Plus the boys dish on their favourite movies of the year.

This week on the show, it's the holiday season which means only one thing to the discerning hockey fan: it's time for the World Juniors! To break it all down, RGS World Juniors expert RYAN LAMBERT makes his fourth annual appearance on the program to talk up the tournament, the Flyers' firing Dave Hakstol, the rise of Carter Hart, and the way NHL teams waste the prime years of their young goalies. PLUS: We name our favourite movies of the year, and Justin goes on an unhinged rant against George Parros and the NHL's Department of Player Safety.

This week on the show, RGS isn’t the only three letter acronym coming back from the dead! We’re talking Vince McMahon’s XFL revival, as Deadspin’s DAVID ROTH joins the show for a discussion on the parallel lives of Donald Trump and Vince McMahon, the driving forces within their deranged rich guy brains, and whether a league brought back to capitalize on a political moment can succeed three years after that moment has passed. PLUS: The Brewers’ improbable playoff run, the Mariners’ ongoing locker room demolition, Crab Rangoon, and things of that nature. Follow David on Twitter: @david_j_roth Support the show at patreon.com/RealGoodShow Outro Music: “No Chance In Hell,” by Jim Johnston
This week, it’s the return. The show is back with brand new material, as CanucksArmy’s JACKSON McDONALD joins Justin to talk the Canucks’ deployment of Nikolay Goldobin, the on-going war over the Russian winger between rabid factions on either side, the maturation of Jake Virtanen, and more. But beyond Canucks talk, they also get into OHL’s hazing controversy, and what it reveals about labour needs and unionization in the CHL — and an article of Jackson’s that was read on the floor of Ontario’s provincial parliament. Follow Jackson on Twitter: @failsonmcdonald Support the show at www.patreon.com/RealGoodShow New show art and theme song coming soon! Outro Music: “Dream Police”, by Cheap Trick
This week on the show that's back from the dead, Justin lays out his vision of the future of the show and hopes that you'll stick around to see it through with him. The show comes back in earnest next week, but in the meantime, there's already an example of what an RGS episode with Justin flying solo with guest sounds like. Chances are, you just haven't heard it. Unlocked from behind the Patreon paywall for your listening pleasure is "1on1 with Nick Dika", as the Arkells bassist joined me in conversation over Juno Weekend back in March. Consider it a taste of what you can expect going forward. I hope you'll stick around. Arkells' new record Rally Cry is available wherever you get your music. Check it out. It's great.

It's the last one. We reminisce about our fondest memories of doing the show. And then it's over.
This week on the show that needs something to blame after last year, John is away watching the Leafs home opener, so Stefan and Justin fly solo and go heavy on Canucks content right before the 2018/19 NHL season kicks off. And why not when they’ve given us so much to talk about: on banning Fortnite, Bo Horvat’s political machinations, the case for playing skill guys, and Stefan’s #IgnoreTheLottery campaign. PLUS: The Gritty backlash has arrived! Kawhi Leonard’s weird laugh! Predicting the NHL season! And what it would take for us to finally stop cheering for the Canucks.

This week on the show that f***ing was terrible today, the Real Good Boys are back giving the people more of what they want: in-depth food discussions. It’s snacking season, baby! No better way to enjoy the NFL season than with some quality chips and dip. But which chips are best? And John comes out swinging against dip in general. PLUS: Stefan buys the world’s worst bag of chips. And Justin waxes nostalgic about the authentic Mexican cuisine of Blaine, Washington.

FULL EPISODE AVAILABLE at www.patreon.com/RealGoodShow It's the series finale (hopefully) of the Summer of Sheldon, as the Real Good Boys are joined by contest-winner and long-time listener Jacob Logan!! This surely has to be the most vacuous and empty episode yet. ...of Young Sheldon, that is! Because Real Good Sheldon keeps the laughs coming, I assure you. It's the moment we've all been waiting for: the Elon Musk cameo. A cameo that surely the producers knew would stand the test of time, and within a year would not have viewers saying "oh it's that insane man who keeps calling a rescuing hero 'pedo guy'". And you know Jacob is ready to talk about it all, because not only did he take notes, he watched the episode TWICE! Thank you all so much for your support this summer. As painful as it has been to watch Young Sheldon for the last month, making these episodes has been a ton of fun and it makes it all worthwhile to know you've been enjoying them. We appreciate you.
This week on the show that thinks pressure is millions of parents with no money to buy food for their children, we’re beefin’ ‘bout that beef, baby!

Stefan continues to collect royalties on the sale of Hydro Flasks. PLUS: Earbuds vs Airpods! Super Smash Bros! And we pitch our own Food Network original series.

This week on the show that's heard the Canadian Minister of Defence believes in aliens, Justin Morissette misses his first episode of all-time, so Stefan and John run amok like kids in a candy shop, with the help of their favorite ne'er do-well, CHRIS JAMES. PLUS: Stefan Auto-Tunes the pod! Justin's Chicago meal choices! And the boys finally answer the question that's been plaguing the pod for years: who's got the best hog in Vancouver sports history?
