Welcome to the eighth episode of the RFO/B5Q podcast – and the first of the 2013 calendar year – simulcast here at Radio Free Omaha and at Bucky’s Fifth Quarter.
Presented by RFO’s Matthew Semisch and B5Q’s hockey editor Andy Johnson, this podcast looks at what’s going on around the Western Collegiate Hockey Association as well as NCAA college hockey in general.
Semisch primarily covers Nebraska Omaha on Radio Free Omaha, and also is an arena reporter for United States College Hockey Online. If you’re not familiar with Johnson, he covers the Badger hockey program at Bucky’s 5th Quarter and has also started projects with USCHO and the Western College Hockey blog recently.
Once a week, Semisch and Johnson come together to give listeners an in-depth look at what’s going on in the WCHA.
This week, they share their verdicts on the 12 WCHA teams’ first-half performances before Semisch and Johnson also share their predictions for this weekend’s games going on around the league. What’s more, in this episode’s interview section, Andy speaks with Chris Peters from the United States of Hockey blog about the recent IIHF World Junior Championships in Ufa, Russia.
