S3E17: Rebuilding the Whale feat. Bray Ketchum Peel

The Founding4Pod is back to chat player re-signings, NWHL Open Ice, and more! Erica also chats with Bray Ketchum Peel (@bdk27) about her first season as Connecticut Whale general manager. #WoHo #NWHL #Founding4Pod

We're still waiting to drop the puck for the 2020 Isobel Cup Final, but that hasn't stopped teams from re-signing players for season six. Host Erica L. Ayala recaps the most recent signings and other NWHL news (Note: Beauts forward Taylor Accursi re-signed after this episode was recorded).

Erica is later joined by Connecticut Whale general manager Bray Ketchum Peel. Bray's first day on the job was the day the #ForTheGame movement began. She navigated those early challenges and put together a team with lots of grit. Ketchum Peel discusses the bright spots & challenges of the 2019-20 season and her top priorities for Season 6.

Listeners will also get a clip of my interview with women's hockey pioneer Digit Murphy. The full 60-minute interview is available for patrons of Sports Talk with ELA
