This past weekend I was in Las Vegas with the Game of Stones Podcast to cover the 2019 Continental Cup of Curling. Despite being on the Vegas strip for a sporting event, I was still able to find some great history content by running into Brian Chick, author of Written in Stone: A Modern History of Curling. The two of us sat down for a conversation on the media in the Orleans Arena where we talk about the Olympics, the boycotts over sponsorship at the Brier and Scotties, and the TV controversies of the mid-2000s. We also talk about the changes in fitness, the professionalization of the sport, and what the future may hold for some of the top teams. You can find the full post over at Activehistory.ca.
