Ep. 66 - Puttin' On The Fitz

Hubby Frank joins me to compare our career flops and fails to the NFL shenanigans over the weekend! Frank shares his fave new music. Then we talk about the magic that is a Ryan Fitzpatrick. Sponsored by: ATB.com Alberta Podcast Network Back to School Again Podcast http://tightendspodcast.com


Ep. 65 - A Difficult Conversation

This is a fun one with regular listener and guest co-host, Monique. Yes, we also have a couple of difficult conversations as we cover our thoughts on September 11th and share our perspectives on Serena Williams and the US Open Final. It is difficult but I think an important conversation for a white Canadian woman and a black American woman to have. But it's also really funny! I swear! http://tightendspodcast.com


Ep. 64 - Making the Cut

So it was cut day on Saturday. What a way to ruin a long weekend?! My occasional guest co-host, and always husband, Frank joins me to chat about who made the final cuts AND what games we are watching this first weekend of NFL! We also talk about our new travel endeavor! Couldn't think of a title...but these players made the cut and we hope our trailer makes the cut too! Brought to you by: Alberta Podcast Network ATB.com

Ep. 62 - Between Friends at the Beach

This is my most difficult episode ever. Not emotionally. Just sheer bad audio, busy vacation, and multiple interviews. That being said, it’s a great episode. If you listen for football you get that, if you listen for Calgary events you get that, and if you show up for my singing, you get it in spades! The episode title is for the two super cool interviews I had the pleasure of doing. Now that I’ve put them together, Elliot and Katie need to talk! Their work could work well...


Ep. 61 - Football Feels

Tight Ends is thrilled to welcome from Hockey Feels podcast, Steven Schapansky! We chat ESPYs and "NHL vs NFL" what will our respective leagues' seasons bring for us this winter. Our halftime show is INCREDIBLE! LEGO of whatever you are doing and take a listen! The episode title is an homage to my friends at Hockey Feels podcast.

Ep. 60 - The Secret Word is Irrevocably

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... Brought to you by: Alberta Podcast Network ATB.com/listen Intro...

German and I open with hockey chat, catch up on what Gronk is up to, and talk spring cleaning for yourself! The episode closes out with my dream chat with The Dream! The episode title is from an old timey song. My mom probably sang it... My mom...

The title refers to the fact that Nick Foles might be the wisest man...ever. I have been bragging up Nick Foles for a while. Glad he pushed through to the win.
