Ugh! Tech difficulties this week. Apologies for the echo…you get to hear Vanda twice! Back to regular ‘casting next week when Ali returns.

Ep. 27 – Not Our 1st Rodeo

This week our city hosts a HUGE rodeo event! But are rodeo events sports? Vanda and Ali weigh in. Tamara Robertson, contestant on Mythbusters the Search, joins us to talk women in STEM, comic books, and being on TV! We also find out what Gronk has been up to and travel the wide world of sports for some headlines from the sports world!

The episode title refers to the rodeo. In honesty, even though Vanda and Ali live in Western Canada, they don’t usually attend rodeos. Though it is nice seeing all the cowboys in town.

Grab the popcorn because this week it is all about entertainment! Movies and CFL! The episode title is a play on words…say it out loud…there you go! Funny, right?

Ep. 24 – Jolene Writes the Wrong

This week brings us to the conclusion of the NBA and NHL Playoffs! But Vanda and Ali talk about the players’ moms and what everyone was wearing. Also joining the podcast is Jolene Latimer @jojolats who is a sports/entertainment journalist who appeared on the Late Late Show and one horrible date (at least one, we didn’t ask if there were others). The Halftime Show is all about snacks. Vanda and Ali are the hard-hitting snack journalists that you didn’t even know you needed.

The episode title gives a nod to our guest who is a writer. She also has the best song title name ever. She is a writer and was done wrong. Actually not far off from an actual country song.
