Back with an all-new edition of the Fang’s Bites Podcast. It’s not like we’ve had a repeat edition, but I digress.
This week, two guests and the first is Tim Thompson, the montage producer for CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada and the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. I had the opportunity to speak to Tim about the following topics:
- How he got his start in the business;
- Where he gets the inspiration for the songs he chooses for each montage.
- The closest he came to deadline;
- Licensing songs for the montages and also hitting roadblocks on putting his videos on YouTube;
- The mood at CBC after word of job cuts;
- Whether he’ll work at Rogers next season.
Our second guest is Amy Van Dyken, formerly of Fox Sports Radio and who did some free-lance work for Pac-12 Networks this past winter. Among the issues we discussed:
- The Michael Phelps comeback;
- Working for Pac-12 Networks as a swimming analyst;
- Her reaction to leaving Fox Sports Radio last year;
- Her active social media accounts;
- Being a dog lover.
I love talking with Amy. She’s become one of my favorite guests.
