After two weeks of absence due to personal matters, the Passion Over Sleep podcast RETURNS. However, we’ve decided to change things up for this week. While Dickson Liong was absent from the podcast, he opted to be a guest on Jon Guarin’s WOW! Podcast, where they recalled when they first met, along with so much more. Liong doesn’t have friends, he has family and Guarin is undoubtedly one of them and will remain a brother for life. Be sure to tune in to the WOW! Podcast, new episodes will be released on Tuesday at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWA1S7YDLbcR9iDQd-2vHKA
Last season, the Washington Capitals won their first Stanley Cup. Passion Over Sleep founder Dickson Liong was in Las Vegas and was inside T-Mobile Arena for Game 5 when they defeated the Vegas Golden Knights. He reflects on everything that happened that day, which he considers of the best days of his life. Capitals’ captain Alex Ovechkin is Liong’s favourite player and is the reason he dreams about making the National Hockey League, joining a team in their front office have a chance of experience a Stanley Cup victory of his own.
Well, Dickson Liong has returned from Las Vegas and is still alive. Former Vancouver Giants billet and one of Liong’s closest people in his life, Parker Schmidt, returns on the podcast to talk about everything that happened from the weekend. They went down for All Elite Wrestling’s first show, Double or Nothing and Starrcast II. However, it was Las Vegas, so there was much more. That including Schmidt winning a major jackpot at the casino, Liong’s encounter with pornstars, partying with AEW’s Joey Janela, getting drunk and singing Backstreet Boys’ greatest hits (Liong may have covered a song exclusively on the podcast) at a VIP after party. As well, he opens up about having girl issues happening in Vancouver while he was in Vegas and the roller coaster of emotions.
Dickson Liong is attending All Elite Wrestling’s Double or Nothing in Las Vegas this weekend with Parker Schmidt, who is a former Vancouver Giants billet and someone who Liong considers family. The two preview what they expect from AEW, how Liong influenced Schmidt to follow independent wrestling along with the entire weekend. AEW is the first time any pro-wrestling company has been considered true competition to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) since World Championship Wrestling (WCW) over 20 years ago.
Former Western Hockey League (Vancouver Giants and Calgary Hitmen) defenceman Ryely McKinstry joined Dickson Liong on the Passion Over Sleep podcast this week. They went though McKinstry’s entire hockey career, the trade that went down involving him between the Giants and the Hitmen, his battle with concussion and how it forced him to retire from the game he loved so much and what’s next in his new life chapter.
Dickson Liong brought on the first guest, none other than Keith Tam. He has seen and known Liong since six-years-old and has gone through all aspects and stages of life together. They recalled over a decade of memories, along with discuss the stigma behind people with disabilities. Tam also gave his perceptive of Liong, after seeing it all.
Dickson Liong discusses being at WWE’s WrestleMania 35 weekend. He took his then-best friend, who he considered family and eventually turned his back and back stabbed Liong.

It’s happening. On this premiere episode of the Passion Over Sleep podcast, Dickson Liong discusses who he is, why he decided to finally pull the trigger on starting a podcast, who inspired him ultimately do it, what PASSION OVER SLEEP means.
