INSIDE THE VILLAGE: Ron MacLean talks Maple Leafs, gambling — and Don Cherry

This week's podcast: With the Stanley Cup playoffs in full swing (and Toronto on the cusp of round two) we sit down with the iconic host of 'Hockey Night in Canada' for a conversation you don't want to miss

Welcome back to Inside the Village, a one-of-a-kind podcast where all news is local — and no topic is off-limits.

On this week's episode: Ron MacLean, the iconic host of Hockey Night in Canada.

The veteran CBC sportscaster took time out of his busy playoff schedule for an in-depth chat about all things hockey (and so much more).

MacLean talks about the Toronto Maple Leafs' Stanley Cup chances, his annual sit-down with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, and the state of his relationship with former on-air partner Don Cherry. He also sheds some light on his future at Hockey Night in Canada.

If you're a fan of Canada's game (and even if you're not), this is one episode you don't want to miss.

Hosted by Scott Sexsmith and Michael Friscolanti, the Editor-in-Chief of Village Media, Inside the Village is a news and current affairs podcast that provides a weekly window into some of the best local journalism from across our chain of Ontario newsrooms. Produced by Derek Turner, the program also explores bigger-picture issues that impact people across the province.
