Ep. 44 – Nerds Talk About Jocks

This week Dan from Northern Nerdcast joins Vanda to talk about Gronk and Eli Manning! (Boo hoo, Eli.) They also review the Grey Cup, or Snow Bowl, as it has been renamed…by me, anyway. Then they have to go back to their geek roots to give you their geek favourites. Linky links below!

The title is a bit of a throwback to Vanda’s high school days. You might be able to guess that Vanda did not sit at the jock table in the cafeteria. All the Jennifer’s got picked first in Phys Ed. Seriously there were, like, 8 Jennifers. But there is only one Vanda!

The Playbook:
Gronk can’t talk about it.
Dan’s pick for geek TV – The Orville
Dan’s pick for video games – Super Mario Odyssey
Dan’s pick for geek board games – Spy Fall and Codenames
Vanda’s pick for geek books – Stainless Steel Rat series
Vanda’s pick for geek movie – For the Love of Spock
We both love Riverdale and Stranger Things!

Ep. 41 – Lions and Packers and Frank! Oh my!

This week Vanda is joined by her hubby, Frank! They watch the Monday Night Football game and chat Fantasy Football, CFL, NHL and review Spiderman Homecoming! You also get bonus puppy sounds in the background.

I need to google what a Packer is? Is it a cheese thing? I’m a really good packer except I always bring too many pairs of shoes. And not enough socks and tights.

Tight Ends Podcast was a friend of the show for The Crossover Podcast! Check it out!

Ep. 40 – That’s a Tight 4th Line

This week Vanda chats with Carl from The 4th Line Podcast! They talk hockey, football, and music. They also share a strange connection with a stuffed wolf! We also find out what is up with Gronk!

The 4th line is the D team in hockey, like, the worst line, but are still hockey players who work hard. Kind of what Carl and Joel do every week!
