Ep. 95 – Time to Harvest the Coaching Tree

The Coaching Tree is a thing?! We review coaching this NFL season. Also a good time to talk about what teams are surprising their fans…whether for good or bad. For Halftime we talk about our favourite YouTube channels but get the best interruption mid-recording! Listen to find out who “drops by”!

The lineage of coaches completely makes sense. Someone to vouch for them, a recognized coaching style. Also explains why so many white men keep getting the job. Are they mentoring anyone who doesn’t look like them? Another discussion for another episode perhaps.

Frank joins to chat all things WEEK 1! He also gives some (free) advice to help Vanda chose her starting Fantasy Football lineup. For Halftime we are joined by Joyous Voyagers who share with us their incredible life and journey to hopefully help us to chose joy.

I love Twitter so much. And Jacoby Brissett on Twitter is bringing me joy! Got to love a guy who plays the high pressure game of football but still asks the tough questions: What is on the other side of a black hole? Listen to see if we have the answer. (spoiler: we don’t)

Ep. 87 – It’s not Rocket Science until it’s Rocket Science (with Shawn Vanderloo)

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!
