In this 23rd Episode (Season 4) Lori and Mary begin the pod with an epic April Fool's prank that convinced many they were coaching Team Bottcher at the Player's Championship. Lori was concerned after the excitement at the Women's World Championship that the Men's Worlds may be a letdown. And thankfully that couldn't be farther from the truth and Lethbridge hosted a fantastic event! Congratulations to Team Sweden for their World Championship victory and excellent job to Team Canada on the silver medal. Did the untimely rock delay contribute to the outcome of the game? The girls also discuss when players get caught with their microphones open and the aftermath of Team Shuster's comments during one of the games. Lori and Mary break down Team Canada's week in Lethbridge: new roles for the players, Koe's highlight reel of shot making, BJ adjusting to his new skip and Ben and Colton's new partnership at front end.
