Ep. 42 – Just Joshin’ Around

This week Vanda is joined by her nephew, Josh! They chat about their weekend fantasy football matchup AND their fave movies from before they were born. Vanda even found some talkies! Then they close it out by talking about the biggest stories out of the NFL this season.

The episode title is pretty easy to figure out. Though Vanda insists on calling her cohost Joshua since that’s the name his mama gave him!

This week we are joined by Calgary Inferno General Manager, Kristen Hagg, to talk about womens hockey! Former Inferno player Erin Duggan, Vanda’s neighbour (!), joins in the conversation! Listen to this one with your daughters! Our guest cohost is Vanda’s other half, Frank. He joins us while Ali is on vacation. Our halftime show is all about Alberta Podcast Network and female entrepreneurs.

The episode title was a tough one. You can hear us decide on during the podcast. Vanda did consider Towering Inferno but that movie is from the ’70s or something and we didn’t know if anyone would get it.
