For Episode 57 of Tendy Talk presented by the BLPA Podcast Network and The Hockey Podcast Network, I chat with three-time Olympian and four-time world champion Hockey Canada goalie Sami Jo Small. Did I forget to mention she is an author too? Sami Jo released her book The Role I Played last year chronicling her journey in women’s hockey.

I was thrilled to talk to Sami Jo after listening to the audiobook. Hearing her speak honestly about the feelings a backup goalie has for the team to do well, but the starting goalie to not get a shutout is a feeling every goalie has had, but few will admit. Sami Jo shared some great advice not just for athletes, but students as well.

Be sure to follow Sami Jo on social media, and enjoy the episode.
