The two men are coming together to collaborate on a new adventure, podcasting. The new show is called "Talkin' Trash" and this is the Youtube channel description:

The Danbury Trashers’ A.J. Galante & ‘The Baddest Man in Hockey’ Daniel Amesbury sit down to give their take on current events in the world of sports. A.J. Galante has led an interesting life of twists and turns since being named president of a professional hockey franchise at just 17 years old. Daniel Amesbury is a professional hockey player and one of the most electrifying & toughest men in sports today. Listen to A.J & Amesbury Trash Talk in this must listen to podcast!

Episode 1 was uploaded to their Youtube channel on November 12, 2023 and the guys covered a wide array of topics. They discussed the impact of AJ's Netflix documentary "Untold: Crime & Penalties", Daniel's big move from Canada to Danbury and the fighter mentality.

This seems like the next logical move for these two guys who are each riding their own wave of success. AJ's story has been told on the radio, in print, on TV and in film and people still want more. Daniel has proven himself to be a draw on the ice, and in the pro fight ring. Why not work together and maximize their reach?

I'm a big fan of these guys doing their thing and if this is anything like their other projects, it will be a hit. We've had the opportunity to interview each guy on the I-95 Morning Show, you can listen below.

Daniel Amesbury and the Danbury Hat Tricks are currently defending their 2022-2023 Commissioner's Cup Championship Title. You can purchase tickets and get additional information here.

Danbury Was the Scene of a Sit-Down Between the Galantes and Gandolfinis

What is going on here? What are Jimmy and AJ Galante, doing with Michael Gandolfini? What are they doing at Dolce in Danbury, CT? Whatever the answer it's nice to see Danbury in the forefront more and more.

Inside the Premier Party for the Danbury Trashers Netflix Documentary

My name is Lou Milano, I am the co-host of the Ethan and Lou Morning Show on I-95. Recently, I attended the local premier of the Netflix film "Untold: Crime & Penalties" about the Danbury Trashers. The Trashers were a United Hockey League team that were around for a short time in the 2000' s in Western, CT but the team and ownership left a lasting impact.

The premier was open to the public and would take place inside the building where the Trashers played hockey, the Danbury Ice Arena. I decided to watch the movie at my house before going to the event. I wanted to use the time at the arena to interview the people in the film, and give an inside look into the night. This was my night out, with the cast of the film and the Trashers.
