Why are there "Ice Bats" in Austin, TX!?

Where is there Ice Hockey in El Paso!?

How did this wild and crazy idea of minor league hockey in Texas come to be and who was there to document it all!?

In comes this week's guest, Jason Cohen. Jason literally wrote the book on minor league hockey in Texas with a book titled "Zamboni Rodeo". In this episode Joe and Jason cover Jason's background in journalism, how he made his way to Texas, and why he spent a season following around this lovable team of misfits for a year.

Enjoy!

About Jason Cohen

Writer at large and former senior editor Jason Cohen has written for Texas Monthly since 1995 (and texasmonthly.com since its first iteration). His 1997 story “The Ice Bats Cometh,” about minor league hockey in Texas, was the basis of his book Zamboni Rodeo (Greystone Press, 2001). He also wrote the magazine's first-ever Matthew McConaughey story, in August 1996. The coauthor of Generation Ecch! (Fireside Books, 1994) and coeditor of SXSW Scrapbook (Essex/University of Texas Press, 2011), he has also written for such publications as Rolling Stone, SPIN, Details, the Austin Chronicle, the Austin American-Statesman, Portland Monthly, and Cincinnati magazine. His 1995 Rolling Stone cover story on the band Hole prompted Courtney Love to yell at him from the stage at Lollapalooza in Austin, while his 2007 profile of the Portland strip club Mary's won a Sex-Positive Journalism Award. As one of the two primary writers for the TM Daily Post, Cohen wrote approximately five hundred stories for Texas Monthly in 2012. He has been a blogger since 2002 and has been known to maintain as many as five Twitter accounts.

What do you do after you retire from over 40 years in the entertainment business!? You start a podcast about the entertainment business!

Seriously though, both Fritz Coleman & Louise Palanker are storytellers at hear and love guiding listeners down the Media Path each and every week on their podcast. They explore various themes and resources all in an attempt to help listeners understand the world better.

Enjoy!

About Fritz & Louise

“And now, here’s Fritz Coleman with the weather.”  

For nearly four decades, Los Angelenos came to know and love Fritz Coleman through his gig as the weather reporter on KNBC, where his affable demeanor (honed in his early years of stand-up comedy) made him a staple of local news.  But when he retired from his weather gig two years ago, Coleman knew he wasn’t done working.  “That 11 o’clock news kept me from a lot of things,” he recalls.  “Now I could do all those things that massage my soul, be curious more, and discover more.”

That’s the impetus behind MEDIA PATH PODCAST, co-hosted by Fritz and Louise Palanker, veteran radio producer and documentarian.  With 100 episodes released so far, MEDIA PATH is a look back at what has defined our media for the past half-century.  With guests as eclectic as Congressional leader Adam Schiff, television legend Henry Winkler, Grammy winning songwriter Diane Warren, and “Double Dare” host Marc Summers, each week is a journey down a new path of remembering, learning, and reevaluating our shared memories and histories.

Every show includes discussion of current cultural events and recommendations from the hosts, as well as extended, deep-dive discussions with figures who have had meaningful and memorable impact on the media world we experience.  While many of the subjects will be familiar to Baby Boomers and Gen X’ers, the spirit of inquisitiveness, curiosity, and sharing that Fritz and Louise bring to each episode will ring familiar to newer generations who may be hearing about these subjects, people, and stories for the first time.  

For Louise Palanker, who has been producing radio entertainment for decades and successful podcasts since 2005, that sense of serious and thoughtful discovery and discussion is what drives the podcast:  “We can rediscover the things that matter to us and celebrate what we love.”  For Coleman, the show is a new way for him to share his passion and curiosity about the world in the same charitable spirit that earned him Congressional recognition as “Humanitarian of the Year” for his work with the American Red Cross.  “It’s a great release valve of the pent-up energy from forty years of weather reporting,” he says. 

And now – back to you Fritz and Louise, for more journeys on the MEDIA PATH.
