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. 84 – Gronk: The Man, The Legend (with William Pullen)

 

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…
