My first chat with my name twin, Shawn Vanderloo from Soul Forge Podcast. We discuss whether the US Women’s Soccer Team got a raw deal and I celebrate another Wimbledon, just a great excuse to watch the Royals! For halftime I talk with a great local resource for pet owners, Doodle Dogs YYC and they share something super special with us! Our 2nd Half goes there. We talk about athletes who have opened up about problems with depression and anxiety.
Shawn and I literally met on Skype 3 minutes before starting our recording. Once we realized we were basically neighbours (20+ years ago) it was like chatting with a cousin! Go, Northern Ontario!

Discussion with author and psychotherapist, William Pullen, starts at 35:20.
Hopefully author and psychotherapist, William Pullen is okay with being on the bill with Rob Gronkowski, our favourite Tight End. Join Vanda and Sharon as they share their favourite Gronk stories. Also, we close out March Madness and open the NHL playoffs! The Halftime Show is a chat with the author of Running With Mindfulness. We have a great discussion on movement, emotional health, and empathy walks. I know you are going to like this one.
What do you title the episode where we say goodbye to our mascot and friend, The Gronk? I think he’d appreciate the sentiment. Just as we’ve appreciated all the laughs and fun we’ve had covering Gronk…as if anyone could cover that massive dude…
Interview with Laura Smith from Calgary Parks starts at 29:00.
Jodie the Personal Trainer joins Vanda to prep for Super Bowl 53! We make some fun prop bets and find out What’s Up With Gronk? For Halftime Vanda chats with Calgary Parks Laura Smith about the city considering allowing alcohol in city parks. Listen to the conversation, then fill out the survey!

This episode is packed with info! Plus my cohost (and hubby) and I have a huge reveal that could shake the very foundations of our marriage! We also talk about World Cup, Men’s Tennis, and how sick I was during the recording of this episode. But I’m a trooper!
The title is from my fave kid’s show, Pee Wee’s Playhouse. I love his movies! And I still can’t say this word…but I know what it means and I did use it correctly…
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?
