A place for curious people.

Open Kwong Dore Media is a partnership between Pj Kwong and Paul Dore. It all began a few years ago when they made their first recordings together. These recordings would become the Open Kwong Dore Podcast. As this show grew, Paul and Pj felt it was time to expand the project and established the @SkatingPj Podcast. With two podcasts and counting, who knows what’s next!

@SkatingPj Podcast

The @SkatingPj Podcast is a one stop shop for the figure skating fan. If you’re interested in skaters present and past; we’ve got them. If you want to know about other people in the sport like the choreographers, coaches, writers, broadcasters and even fellow fans – you will find in-depth and personal interviews here. The Inside Edge is devoted to the interview and episode itself, how it came to be as well as any information about the guest. The Outside Edge is a section where we highlight videos from across the skating world.

The Inside Edge is where I take you behind-the-scenes of this week’s @SkatingPj Podcast. It was 15 years ago when I was asked to go to Korea for the first time. It was coincidentally also the first time that I was booked to do 'guide track' commentary for every skater...

Open Kwong Dore Podcast

Pj 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.

Now for something completely different! Recently, Paul has been taking podcast guests for ‘walk and talks’ where microphones are strapped on and we head on to the streets. Today’s guest, Denise Pinto, is the Global Director of Jane’s Walk, so a walking interview was...


PJ KWONG is a self-proclaimed Word Broker who goes by the motto: I read them. I write them. I speak them. A fascination with other languages and a bilingual start to her education has helped carve a successful career as a PA announcer at six Olympic Games, among many other events. The 25+ years as a figure skating coach has enabled her to talk skating in depth happily on CBC since 2007. The person rather than the accomplishments is how she approaches her subjects and her life. Check out Pj’s WEBSITE for more info.

PAUL DORE is a storyteller, blogger, author, performer and has worked in the film and television industry for over ten years, including a stint directing at the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Curious by nature, Paul is interested in the stories everyone has to tell and looks forward to exploring the world through this podcast. Check out Paul’s WEBSITE for more info.
