Kicking off SEASON 2 of the podcast, we welcome comedian Kendall Clark to the What Did I Miss locker room for the first time! He's here to introduce us to the hilarious and surprisingly layered 1977 hockey comedy movie and cult classic "Slap Shot", starring Paul Newman and Michael Ontkean.
So put on your foil and join us on the ice where we discuss such topics as toxic masculinity, Eddie Shore's career and French-Canadian representation in movies.

What Did I Miss? is a podcast where guests introduce TV shows and movies from their childhood to a host who has never seen them before.
French Canadian expat MJ Bourque asks her guests to introduce her to the movies and TV shows of their childhood so she can catch up on the cultural references she missed out on growing up in another language.
Every episode we recap the plot of the media in question, dive into some pieces of trivia, and learn a bit more about the guests themselves.
