We're Chris Nelson and Gemma Hooley, independent producers who create sound-rich storytelling on the radio and online. We seek out stories about everything from hockey players in North America to wildlife biologists in South Africa. All the content on our tumblr site is recorded, written, shot and owned by us, unless we indicate otherwise. Thanks for visiting.
We’re documenting Washington Capitals defenseman Karl Alzner’s 2013-2014 season for our Hockey Diaries series… and tracking his 2008-2009 rookie year season in parallel on twitter (@karlsrookieyear). Alzner kept an audio diary throughout his rookie year. This is his entry from Sept 24, 2009 — his twentieth birthday.
