openPj Kwong and Paul Dore met over ten years ago and have worked on many productions and writing projects together, so it was only a matter of time before they started a podcast.

The Open Kwong Dore Podcast explores the lives of athletes, visual artists, writers, authors, journalists, musicians, actors and others who have interesting stories to share. We have been experimenting as of late and will be including more host banter.

61zx5snj4elCanada is synonymous with success in figure skating. Taking the Ice tells us about some of the people who have been instrumental in creating the “Ice Dynasty” that we have come to enjoy as Canadians.

It all begins with the love affair between Canadians and Barbara Ann Scott, the 1948 Olympic Champion, and the book takes us right up to the stories of the Canadian Champions at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games: Patrick Chan, Jessica Dubé and Bryce Davison, Olympic Bronze Medallist Joannie Rochette, and Olympic Champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir.

Aside from skaters like Cranston, Stojko, Browning, Orser, Magnussen, Manley, Underhill and Martini, and Wilson and McCall, the book talks about the coaches who stood at the boards, including Burka, Galbraith, Leigh, and Perron. You will also get an inside look at choreographers Sandra Bezic, Lori Nichol, and David Wilson.

As a PA announcer at the 2002 Olympic Games, Pj Kwong brings thirty seven first-hand personal accounts from people who were there behind the scenes during the judging scandal that rocked the figure skating world. Included are the stories from the athletes Jamie Salé and David Pelletier, coach Jan Ullmark, and NBC radio commentator Elizabeth Manley among many others. Taking the Ice is not just for skating fans but for everyone who loves the personal and human details in a story that connects us all.

Taking the Ice is available through AMAZON.
