Ep. 36 – Frankly, my dear, I Don’t Give an Inferno!

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.
