When I planned on taking a baby break, I planned on doing my two tech week podcasts last week and then scheduling my upcoming series, but then my husband reminded me I had the idea a while back to do this episode as the NHL play-offs are about to start.

In this episode, I’ll be talking about the history of the oldest trophy in professional sports, its origins and evolutions, and what the winners have since done with the trophy.

I’m your host, Emily Prokop, with my husband, Mark, and this is The Story Behind The Stanley Cup

Enjoy the bloopers at the end!
