Akim Aliu is best known for two things: accusing Bill Peters of using racial epithets and being at the centre of an OHL hazing controversy nearly 15 years ago. Ryan and Justin Bourne talk to Gare Joyce, who’s known Aliu since the latter was a teenager. He shares some pertinent details of Aliu’s life and offers his impressions of the man learned over the course of their years-long relationship.

Ryan and Justin then discuss the new-look Maple Leafs and speak with Wayne Scanlan about the sneaky-competitive Ottawa Senators. 

This episode is produced and sound designed by Amil Delic, and hosted by Ryan Dixon and Justin Bourne.
