Ep. 47 – Rants and Raves

This week Tight Ends is joined by Kyle from Assumptions podcast. Vanda had some assumptions about him but together they tackle the question of “The Catch” and solve the harassment issue with the Carolina Panthers organization! Puppies for everyone! Interestingly they also invent a future weekend activity…FFLARPing. You heard it here first. Join Kyle and Vanda in setting some special resolutions for 2018!

The title is Rants AND Raves but there were just a lot of rants from Vanda. And can we please eliminate the term “allegedly”?!?

Ep. 46 – The Eagles Are Landed

Vanda is joined by Monique from America! She is from Louisiana and loves football! (Duh) They chat Hot Topics and college football. For the halftime show they play The Newlywed/Oldywed Game! Listen just to hear her hubby’s buttery bourbon-soaked accent.

The episode title is for my NFL playoffs pick, the Philadelphia Eagles. Now with Carson Wentz hurt they probably won’t make it. Boo. What is the movie The Eagle Has Landed actually about? Is it a war or spy movie? Whatever, I can use references I don’t understand.

The Newlywed/Oldywed Game questions:
Questions for the husbands:
1) What was your wife wearing on your first date with her?
2) Who will your wife say is the more romantic one in your relationship?
3) If one of your relatives was going to stay with you, which one would your wife hope it would be?
4) How long does it take your wife to get ready for a night out?

Answers that your husband needs to provide to our questions
1) When you cook for your wife, would your wife say the food is spot on, or would she sign you up for cooking school?
2) What would your wife say to fill in the blank, “I wish my husband would pay as much attention to me as he does his _______________.
3) Which of you is the thrifty shopper? You or your wife?
4) What is one thing you don’t have in your house but your wife wishes you did?

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.
