In the 6th Episode (Season 4) the girls recap the Masters Grand Slam of Curling that took place in Truro, NS.  Congratulations to the winners, Team Hasselborg and Team Epping! Some topics from the slam include the early ice conditions and low stats, Jill Officer now broadcasting for CBC Curling, the residency poll discussion on CBC, surprises and disappointments and a new favourite segment: the 60 second recap of the finals.  The girls chat with curler and author Brian Chick about his new book entitled Written in Stone: A Modern History of Curling complete with a giveaway of 3 copies!  The contest will run for a week so get your entry in today!  Lastly, Laura Walker joins the podcast to discuss posing in the Women of Curling Calendar, how her current team joined forces, how she felt holding the broom for three such accomplished veterans and what their goals are for this season. Things get a little personal when the discussion turns to marriage and curling with a spouse.  The interview ends with a fun game where Laura gives a word or phrase to describe some of the legendary players she has curled with.  Thank you to the following sponsors: Hardline, JetIce, Curlingzone and Asham.  Please enjoy this episode!

In this 5th Episode, Season 4 the girls share some stories and observations from the Stu Sells Tankard in Toronto.  A new segment is introduced called "Things That Make Us Go Hmmmm?" which will be shorter interviews with the curlers answering questions the girls are curious about.  In this weeks segment the girls hit up Greg Smith, Jamie Sinclair and Kirk Muyers and ask them some pressing questions.  The girls weigh in on the HOT TOPIC about Team Homan not getting a direct berth into the Scotties but rather a second chance at making the Wildcard game if they are not successful in winning Ontario Provincials.  There will be an "Ask The Girls" question and the girls will also announce the winners of the Women of Curling Calendar contest! Thank you to the following sponsors: JetIce, CurlingZone, Asham and Hardline!  Thank you for listening and please enjoy the episode!

In this episode the girls discuss stories from the road trip to the Elite 10 Slam, recap the event and challenge one other to summarize the women's and men's final in 60 seconds.  Then the girls introduce a new segment to the podcast called "Behind the Glass".  These interviews will feature someone who is involved in and influences the sport of curling.  This episode features George Karrys, Olympian and owner of The Curling News publication who announced the launch of the Women of Curling Calendar. The girls made their picks and have a fun competition to see who guessed the most correctly.  The girls also catch up with George about his time as a competitive curler and what else he is involved in these days.
