Ep. 38 – The Tight Ends Get Roasted

This week Hannah from Film Roast podcast joins us to chat football and movies! Grab the popcorn and listen to our review of the oldie Necessary Roughness from 1991. We also cover Sports News and list our fantasy players that have been TIGHT or BITE. And Hannah learns what a Canadian Tuxedo is!

Vanda is sick with the flu this week but she’s a trooper! Hannah joined online from Arizona to chat American Football and Football, or Soccer, as you American folks call it.

Ep. 37 -The Fix Is In

This week Vanda and guest host, Jodie, discuss how to fix everything that’s wrong with the NFL. It’s all solved, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell! They also compare their Fantasy Football teams to players in non-Fantasy Football. Were they TIGHT or did they BITE? The halftime show is all about new Fall TV! Don’t set your DVR until you listen to this episode!

The episode title is also a great song by Elbow. This week we solve the NFL’s issues, tomorrow peace in the Middle East!

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.
