Podcast: March 8, 2020 – Girls Play Guys

Episode #827

It’s International Women’s Day, and we’re celebrating with an all-female show today! We’re playing a game of Girls Play Boys, where female artists cover songs written and made famous by males, and show them how the songs should really be sung! We’ve also got a bit of new music and some great requests/suggestions from some of our favourite female listeners. Sadly, we also had to do a bit of a tribute to Canadian singer/songwriter Laura Smith, who passed away this weekend.
