Ep. 88 – Brawl In The Family

Ever since I joined my husband’s family, I’ve heard the disputes re: football. It was awesome to capture how these “discussions” really sound around the dinner table. Join us in choosing our picks for the 2019/20 NFL Season Playoffs! Nothing like an early start! For halftime we talk travel tips! Come join the family!

In all seriousness, we all respect each other, and love each other a lot. Football is just one of the things we like to share as a family. Hope you enjoy!

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!

Ep. 85 – What’s Brewing in the Off-Season? (with Casey Logan)

Casey Logan drops by to chat NHL, NFL…really all the L’s. We also get her blurry report from the Calgary Beer Fest. This episode is a lot of fun even if we do talk about Tyreek Hill…allegedly…

The episode title refers to the fact that it’s hard to have a football podcast in the off-season. Plus I like beer. I’ve always liked beer. Enjoy!

Ep. 74 – Turf Tow (with The Roads We Roam)

To hear my interview with The Roads We Roam’s Kerry go to 31:50!

In the first half we talk about the latest NFL players and their problems with assault and other violence. It isn’t graphic but feel free to skip to 31:50 for the half time show and our chat on NFL team standings leading up to the playoffs if you are sensitive to this kind of discussion.

If you live locally in Calgary and need help please contact Calgary Women’s Shelter . Please find some help local to you if you need assistance.

In among the mess of violence in the NFL it is important to remember how to find your joy. Kerry helps us to do that in our Halftime Show! I am so fortunate to have my amazing hubs, Frank, to cohost my podcast AND MY LIFE!
