Hästens is a Swedish company that makes the world’s most luxurious beds. They just opened a new shop in the Knox-Henderson area.

The Stars are a hockey team that moved to Dallas from Minnesota in 1993. They are headed into the playoffs next week.

What do these two things have in common? They are both discussed at length in this episode of EarBurner. Why do I often sleep on my couch? What sort of pajamas does Zac wear? How is it possible to trademark blue gingham? And will Pete DeBoer’s Stars, the best squad we’ve seen in years, skate the Cup? With help from StrongSide’s Mike “The Looch” Piellucci, all questions are answered.

The player below or any old podcatcher will do. If you’re more interested in skating than you are sleeping, the hockey talk starts at about 17:00.
