TCA Ep737: Before The Lights Go Out with Sean Fitz-Gerald
On today's edition of the show we're really excited to be welcoming Sean Fitz-Gerald of The Athletic and author of the book Before The Lights Go Out - A Season Inside A Game On The Brink.
We chat with Sean about the concept for the book, why Peterborough and the Petes were the perfect city and team to frame the discussion around, whether hockey in Canada is in trouble, why new Canadians are not gravitating to the sport and tons more.
The book is called Before The Lights Go Out: A Season Inside A Game On The Brink. Pick it up at your favourite bookstore or on Amazon. Also available in Kindle format.
While we had him, we felt we needed to also ask about some recent article topics he's posted in the Athletic including why TV ratings were so brutal for the Stanley Cup Final and one Toronto-area minor hockey association's decision to call off their season in the face of the pandemic.
Sean was an awesome guest and this is a jam packed episode. Make sure you don't miss this one.
