Johnny Oduya of the Chicago Blackhawks – DD52

 

On June 29th, NHL Hockey Player, Johnny Oduya, from the Chicago Blackhawks was in Bangkok, Thailand where he did a meet and greet at The Rink in Central Rama 9.

On Sunday, July 1st, I got a chance to sit down with him for a longer interview. We talked about him growing up playing hockey, who was most influential in his hockey life growing up, and the Olympics, just to name a few.

Sorry about the sound quality, it was my first time recording a show outside my studio and I was in hotel restaurant with marble walls and floor.

He is one of the most humble gentleman I have ever met and he was a pleasure to talk to.

In this episode, Dom talked more about why he stopped playing hockey back in 1989.

After that he talked about how watching the SHL and getting to know the players re-inspired him about playing hockey and how hockey was meant to be fun. He talked about how Lance Parker and the Flying Farangs helped him get some gear, and when he went to the States and got some hockey gear so he could play hockey when he got back to Thailand. Then he talked about how he felt when he was getting ready to play his first game in almost 30 years, but how that all went away once he just started playing. This episode finishes off with Tracy saying a few words about Dom ice skating and playing hockey again and then a video minutes before his first game in almost 30 years.

Addiction – DD48

Play

Dom talks about something that he feels is close to home to him.  He decided to talk about addiction.  The reason he decided to talk about addiction in this episode is because he made a post on Facebook about addiction, and a person he know/knew was rude to him about that post, so Dom felt he needed to defend himself, so he did.  Because of this post, Dom decided to do a short podcast about addiction.  The only thing that Dom has really been addicted to would be cigarettes, but when he decided enough was enough, he quit.  It wasn’t easy, but he quit and didn’t look back.  Dom feels this is different than the addiction that some of his loved ones have felt in their life.  Dom also talks about how he feels addiction should be considered as an illness, not a crime and how we should treated as such.
