About Us

Through the commiseration of working in higher education, we became the best of friends. On December 20, 2017, Jeremy was without a +1 for his second season ticket, and well, the rest is history. From that moment on, we have embarked on the fandom journey that ultimately has led to our podcasting adventures. Our love for hockey, combined with our love for the City of Columbus and its people - of all identities - is what makes our podcast special!

Jeremy is a lifelong Columbus Blue Jackets fan and became a season ticket holder before he got his high school diploma. His love for hockey stemmed from attending CBJ games with his Dad, Uncle, Brother, and dear friend Kelly. Born and raised in Columbus, OH, Jeremy attended Otterbein University and Ohio University. When he's not producing and co-hosting CBJectively Speaking, Jeremy works in Higher Education and is the Beat Writer for the Rochester Americans for fieldpasshockey.com. Jeremy is also a co-host of The Holy GrAHL Podcast.

Laura is newer to the hockey world, but it took her no time at all to fall in love with the sport, the community & of course the Columbus Blue Jackets. Her passion for being a student of the game, her love of the city of Columbus & all that the Blue Jackets do both on & off the ice gives her a colorful perspective on all things hockey. When she’s not watching or talking about hockey, Laura works for a non-profit organization, is incredible baker (her goal is to one day bake for a Blue Jacket), is super auntie to a herd of crazy little ones & is a lover of helping humans!
