This episode is packed with info! Plus my cohost (and hubby) and I have a huge reveal that could shake the very foundations of our marriage! We also talk about World Cup, Men’s Tennis, and how sick I was during the recording of this episode. But I’m a trooper!

The title is from my fave kid’s show, Pee Wee’s Playhouse. I love his movies! And I still can’t say this word…but I know what it means and I did use it correctly…

Ep. 26 – See If I’ll Watch CFL

This week we get our listeners, and other podcasts, to convince us why we should watch the CFL! Another installment of “Ali reacts to headlines!” For the halftime show, Vanda and Ali discuss their favourite movie genres.

Grab the popcorn because this week it is all about entertainment! Movies and CFL! The episode title is a play on words…say it out loud…there you go! Funny, right?

Ep. 25 – All Your Balls in One Basket

In this episode we start a new segment, Ali Reacts to Headlines! Ali updates us all on The Bachelorette and Vanda shares news from the NBA Draft. As usual we find out What’s Up With Gronk? and we drop some CFL knowledge in our Impress Conference.

The title of this episode refers to the NBA Draft and Lonzo Ball going to the Lakers! They get stuck with his dad, Lavar Ball too. Ugh!

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.

The Playbook:
Find Jolene on twitter @jojolats and jolenesblog.com
Jolene’s appearance on Late Late Show.
Jolene’s article for USA Today.
