CBC Sports Signature Podcast Series Player’s Own Voice Launches Third Season.
Season three guests include Canadian soccer legend Christine Sinclair and Olympic Games curling champion Jennifer Jones
CBC Sports signature podcast PLAYER’S OWN VOICE returns for its third season featuring all-new conversations with high-performance athletes. Hosted by two-time Canadian Olympic speedskater, Anastasia Bucsis, the provocative talk series offers athletes an unfiltered way to speak on a variety of topics, providing a new perspective on the world of high performance sports. Season three kicks off with a candid conversation with two-time Olympic bronze medal-winning soccer star, Christine Sinclair, who discusses the pressures and nuances of being the GOAT. New episodes of PLAYER’S OWN VOICE will be released weekly on CBC Listen and wherever podcasts are available.
PLAYER’S OWN VOICE gets behind the facade, the quotes and the prepared statements, delivering intimate, genuine and revealing conversations. As an Olympian herself, Bucsis has a special connection and an understanding that earns her the credibility to hold these friendly, funny, intimate chats.
Athletes sit down and shed the cloak of silence. They are talking to a friend, one-on-one, someone they have shared experiences with, someone they are quick to hug, someone who understands, because she’s been in their shoes. In addition to Christine Sinclair, season three will feature in-depth interviews with curling star Jennifer Jones, field hockey player John Smythe, and five-time Olympic medallist Jayna Hayford, amongst others.
Over the past two seasons, Bucsis has had many compelling conversations with a number of top athletes including: track and field legend, Donavan Bailey; Olympic champion ice dancer, Scott Moir; golf phenom, Brooke Henderson; hockey superstar, Cassie Campbell; Olympic bronze medallist figure skater, Joannie Rochette; transgender advocate and triathlete, Chris Mosier; pro cyclist Mike Woods; Olympic champion ice dancer, Tessa Virtue; and more.
Like the CBC Sports’ Player’s Own Voice essay series, PLAYER’S OWN VOICE podcast lets athletes speak to Canadians about issues from a personal perspective. To listen to the debut episode with Christine Sinclair, along with guests from the first two seasons, please visit CBC Listen and subscribe for free on iTunes, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, TuneIn, or wherever podcasts are available.
