This is Moneyball: European Hockey Championships
Welcome to This is MoneyBall, the podcast about what happens off the pitch. As it’s the European Championships this week, Georgie Frost and Lee Boyce go back to school – and talk about hockey. On last week's episode, the pair explored one year to the Tokyo Olympics from the boxing perspective. The view from Team GB hockey, however, is somewhat different: saved from a position of bankruptcy to being recognised as one of the best-run governing bodies in British sport. Could other sports take a lesson from hockey? Plus, what is it like to be a pro in a marginal sport, not awash with cash? And how hard is it to switch countries that you represent?

Modern Mindset: Funny in Canada
Adam Cox talks to comedian James Mullinger, who left the UK for a new life in Canada. While James had moderate success in the London comedy scene, his career exploded when he made the move to Canada. James discusses why Canada isn’t the land of snow and ice that most people assume it is and that, due to its size, it’s actually much more varied than most Brits would know. He reveals how his unique perspective on Canada as an outsider helped his comedy career, and explains why Canada makes such a great place for a holiday.
