NBA star Kelly Olynyk, insight on missing persons in the Kamloops area and opinion on the Kamloops Blazers’ mega-deal feature in Episode 74 of Kamloops Last Week.
Olynyk (at the 20:27 mark) joined us from his comfy couch in Utah to address a number of topics: his dog, married life, the plan for his money (he is nearing U.S. $100 million in career earnings), Gonzaga jersey retirement, the status of the Olynyk Klynyk in Kamloops and the pros and cons of journeyman life in the NBA.
In the Tattle of Hastings (15:17) co-host Marty Hastings goes inside baseball on the process of tracking down pro athletes. Hastings and co-host Foulds share opinion on the best settings for journalistic interviews, with Olynyk seeming comfortable in the Zoom setting.
In Above the Foulds (38:56), Foulds delves into missing persons cases (including Ryan Shtuka, Jakob Gibbon, Shannon White and Ben Tyner) and how they are handled in the media.
We introduce a brand new co-title sponsor (5:55) — musician-friendly Club Car Beverage Company — and talk of a distillery coming soon to Mission Flats.
Co-host Chris Foulds defends the CBC (2:45) in response to Pierre Poilievre calling for it to be defunded.
Foulds and co-host Marty Hastings debate (8:16) the standing of Steve Earle classic Copperhead Road (is it a legendary song or just a legendary intro to a song?).
Showmaster Magic Mike Miltimore uses the Magic Mirror to tell an interesting story (:54) that involves him mooing at cows from his 1974 Buick LeSabre convertible, a conversation that leads to a tale of Hastings being chased by the cops.
Club Car rounds out the #LastWeekCliqueSponsorshipConsortium, which also includes Gord’s Appliance and Mattress Centre, McDonald’s and Cold Control Mechanical.
