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…

Ep. 83 – What are the Giants doing?

You have to ask…what are the Giants thinking? Trading Odell and keeping Eli?! I have made some bad decisions, like wearing wedges to a music festival…but trading Odell Beckman Jr is worse than sore, sunburned feet.

Hubby Frank joins me to talk trades and NFL combine top performers. The Halftime Show is a mess but I hope you like it anyway.
