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!

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.

Ep. 24 – Jolene Writes the Wrong

This week brings us to the conclusion of the NBA and NHL Playoffs! But Vanda and Ali talk about the players’ moms and what everyone was wearing. Also joining the podcast is Jolene Latimer @jojolats who is a sports/entertainment journalist who appeared on the Late Late Show and one horrible date (at least one, we didn’t ask if there were others). The Halftime Show is all about snacks. Vanda and Ali are the hard-hitting snack journalists that you didn’t even know you needed.

The episode title gives a nod to our guest who is a writer. She also has the best song title name ever. She is a writer and was done wrong. Actually not far off from an actual country song.

CFL combine participant and CFL hopeful Matt Singleton @MattSingleton12 joins the Tight Ends to tell us which is more exciting; a touchdown or a sack!

Brr it’s cold in here, there must be some Tight Ends in the atmosphere.
