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!
