It feels like a lot has happened with our Leafs since our last episode. Coming back to the east coast seems to have been just what the doctor ordered. Top it all off with Hall of Fame weekend and a poignant tribute to Borje Salming, its been a memorable and moving couple of weeks!

In our GBU segment, we are happy to report that some of our stars are starting to look like their old selves, and one even made our LTL Highlight reel ag...

Things unfortunately have not gotten any better for the Leafs since our last episode.  Their record is 4-4-1 after the loss to the L.A. Kings, which oddly enough was the same record they had last season at the end of October. No doubt there's lots to dissect as we try to make sense of the teams stagnant start.

While LeafsNation laments all the things that are going wrong, we did manage to find some bright spots to discuss in th...

The NHL schedule makers weren’t very kind to the Maple Leafs giving them a back-to-back to start off
the regular season and 3 games in 4 nights! It kicked off a somewhat tumultuous start with the team
having a less than stellar performance vs. the Canadiens and once again, the injury bug hit the
goaltending department with Matt Murray placed on LTIR dealing with an adductor injury. Even the
Home Opener seemed low-key, and the Ladie...

Welcome to October and Season 4 of Ladies Talkin’ Leafs! The excitement of a new hockey
season is building and soon our Maple Leafs will be embarking on their 106th NHL season! The
pre-season schedule of games is almost complete and there are a lot of decisions to be made.
For us there is no better way to address those decisions than by talking about it with Leafs
reporter and the host of The Leafs Convo podcast, Mike Augello!

Welcome to our final Patio Season episode which we are recording on the last weekend of the summer! It’s been a great summer and for the first time in quite a while we are recording in person from the shores of Georgian Bay! The crickets have continued to sing into September, and it's remained hushed on the Leaf's news front. With training camps set to open mid-week, we expect all this to change in short order.

Now that he Cup has been handed out, we can officially say patio season is here!  The next few weeks are going to be a little crazy, and Chris and Syl are trying to stay calm despite the lack of news on the Leafs front.  So many questions need to be addressed, from what the defence is going to look like next season, to the never ending speculation about the goaltending , to what Kyle Dubas might do at free agency.  The Ladies have ...

The Stanley Cup Final is set to go, which means that we should start hearing a bit more chatter from NHL teams.  There has been some Leaf news and, of course, the Ladies are always set to bring you up to date with what’s been going on with the Blue and White!  

We start the show discussing the NHL Draft, which is being held July 7th and 8th at the Bell Centre in Montreal.  This year’s draft is said to be quite deep with many talente...

It’s been just over 2 weeks since the Leafs were eliminated from the playoffs, but it feels like such a long time ago!  The Ladies have been busy and the Leafs added to this by taking care of some business in the past couple weeks, giving us even more to discuss--which we love!

In this episode we get you up-to-date with the latest team news and we give the team our grades for the 2021-22 regular season.  Find out who made our honour...

It’s not the ending that we or any Leaf fan wanted or expected, but once again the Leafs lost in the first round of the playoffs in a Game 7. Yes, the core group of players lead the team in points. Yes the refereeing was horrible! And yes, they gave it their all, but ultimately it ended with the same, all too familiar result.

Chris and Syl grade the team on their keys to the series in the segment, “Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down”, and in a...

It’s a big week for the Leafs with their series vs. the Tampa Bay Lightning becoming a best 2 out of 3! So far the series has been up and down and special teams have played a big role.

A couple weeks left in the NHL season and the Leafs are in 2nd place in the Atlantic Division, which would give them home ice for the first round of the playoffs! There have been so many regular season milestone moments for the players and the team, but the focus remains on  what can be achieved in the post season.

We are in the final month of the NHL’s regular season and it’s hard to believe we are closing in on the completion of our first full 82-game season of the podcast and the best is yet to come!

The NHL standings are tight and heading into March the games always get more intense! The Leafs went 7-4-1 in February and while the top line of Matthews-Marner-Bunting is one of the best right now in the NHL, the goaltending has been less than ordinary. These are a few topics we discuss in our segment the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Despite some of the ugliness, we actually found a bright spot! We also had flashbacks to a Leaf gre...

As this latest game segment comes to a close, we're starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel with restrictions beginning to lift just in time for the hockey schedule to heat up. After a spotty few months, games will be coming fast and furious, and we can hardly wait!

Before we get into Leaf Talk, we take a trip down memory lane to the close of Maple Leaf Gardens and the opening of the ACC in 1999. We share some of our...

January felt like an odd month for the Maple Leafs and their fan base. No fans at Scotiabank Arena, only 1 Saturday night game at home, and like most NHL teams, the Leafs had to deal with Covid. We got through it and it’s going to be busier, and hopefully a lot more exciting in February!

It’s also the halfway point of the season for us, and the Leafs! We are in our first full, 82-game season covering the Leafs and we are loving it! ...

What better day for Leaf talk than a blustery snow day in January! It's an all out blizzard here in the heart of Leaf Land, but it would take a lot more than an epic snow storm to keep us from our favourite pastime—talkin’ Leafs! We are approaching the halfway point of the season and the Leafs are in 3rd spot in the Atlantic Division, with games in hand on both Tampa and Florida. The schedule has been pretty light and the Buds ...

    The Piketon Massacre

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?


    It’s a lighthearted nightmare in here, weirdos! Morbid is a true crime, creepy history and all things spooky podcast hosted by an autopsy technician and a hairstylist. Join us for a heavy dose of research with a dash of comedy thrown in for flavor.
