In this episode, the girls return to talk about the Women's World Championships and Canada's victory over Sweden to claim the gold medal.  Discussions about Jill's retirement and leaving the game at the top of the world, Jennifer's ability to be on her game for all the biggest moments, and how even the best teams make strategy errors (there's hope for us all!).  The girls chat about some of the men's switch ups and how differently they handled the break ups from the women.  With all the "power teams" forming there is a discussion on the lack of top quality skips and the impact that will create here in Canada.  Lastly, there is an interview with the co-founders of Klutch Curling and their new system to help curlers improve their skills.  Enjoy the laughs!
