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.

Ep. 26 – See If I’ll Watch CFL

This week we get our listeners, and other podcasts, to convince us why we should watch the CFL! Another installment of “Ali reacts to headlines!” For the halftime show, Vanda and Ali discuss their favourite movie genres.

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?

The title of this episode refers to the NBA Draft and Lonzo Ball going to the Lakers! They get stuck with his dad, Lavar Ball too. Ugh!

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.
