The Curling Show
Jon Mead of Team Stoughton. October 11th, 2013

His team is currently ranked #1 in the world and he’s in the pages of the Men of Curling calendar. He’s also 46 so he gets full credit for both achievements. Veteran Jon Mead joined us to talk about Team Stoughton’s season so far, the Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings and whatever else we thought might be interesting.

This week’s podcast is brought to you by Runback, custom curling apparel for teams of all levels. Just Run It.

2011 World Champ Jon Mead. April 22nd, 2011

His return to Team Stoughton was capped by victory at the Ford Men’s World Championships in Regina. It’s been quite a season for Jon Mead and he joined us for a conversation a few days after the final major curling event of the season, the GP Car & Home Players Championship.

Now that the season is over, start training for next year. You’ll find lots of curling insight and a program that’s right for you in Fit to Curl: A Sport-Specific Guide to Training for the World’s Greatest Game by Olympic Gold Medalist John Morris.

Jon Mead, curling again with Jeff Stoughton. April 26th, 2010

A short time after the announcement that he would be joining forces with Jeff Stoughton again — and the morning after fellow Manitobans Jennifer Jones and Cathy Overton-Clapham made news — Jon Mead was on the phone for an interview. John discusses the appeal of curling out of Manitoba again, that game against Team Stoughton at the Tim Horton’s Roar of the Rings and the Team Jennifer Jones shake-up. And in the Runback, you can hear Jon make jokes about Jim Armstrong’s current troubles that somehow sail directly over my head.

Don’t forget that now is the time to get your off-season training started — pick up a copy of Fit to Curl: A Sport-Specific Guide to Training for the World’s Greatest Game by Olympic Gold Medalist John Morris. It’s available at fittocurl.com, at curling pro shops and at Chapters/Indigo/Coles throughout Canada.

Jon Mead on leaving the game. September 6th, 2006

A few months after announcing that he would not be curling on Tour this season, we talked to Jon Mead. It’s his third appearance on The Curling Show — anyone who follows the sport knows that Jon has long been one of the most thoughtful and well-spoken players in the game — and his support of this effort has always been appreciated. This is the first half of a two-part interview.

Jon Mead Interview, Part One. August 29th, 2005

We’re back with another Manitoban – Jon Mead of Team Stoughton. Jon discussess the team’s 2004-2005 season, the effect of earning an Olympic Trials spot prior to last season, the Manitoba Tuck, playing the third position, the team’s disappointments at the provincial championships and the Safeway Select format.

We’re still not in the ITunes directory, but you can subscribe to our feed in ITunes without any other podcasting software. Go to Podcasts in the ITunes Music Store, click on SUBSCRIBE TO PODCAST under ADVANCED and paste in the feed from this site (it appears in your browser window when you click on the RSS/2.0 logo under FEEDS in the Nav Bar on the right). It makes automatic downloads very routine. Remember – you can always listen to the interviews as streaming audio as well.

As usual, Toronto’s Black Pudding gets the interview started and helps wrap things up. With songs like Mountain of Rock and Rockaholic, I think someone in Regina needs to book them for the Brier Patch.
