Pour yourself a cup of tea in a china cup, or grab a beer in a can and settle in. Trish and Sharon (and sometimes Matt) have a lot to discuss. Raised in small town Canada, we came of age when the rules were clear and we knew what we were supposed to do. Now, we're feeling SANDWICHED. We have aging parents, kids, jobs, and all the pressures that go along with that. The old rules don't apply anymore. Join us on our storytelling journey where we try to make sense of everything. Our promises to you include:

- We will never tell you what you SHOULD do (we hate the word SHOULD.)
- You will not feel guilty after listening to this podcast.
- There might be some fiddle music.
- You may experience one small laugh per podcast (or not.)

We're like a family road trip, but without the family and with fun people instead. Glad you're along for the ride!

This is so much fun!

I am having a blast listening to this podcast. It's just like a real conversation with my friends...and with family. Calling out the real stuff in life. You should all listen!

Love the podcast

Such a charming and funny podcast. Brings back lots of funny memories of growing up in the sixties. Listening to Sandwiched is like sitting in the kitchen with two old friends.

Amusing as always!

Trish, your piece about new schools really resonated... my dad was transferred a lot for work, and I went to 10 schools in the first 11 years of schooling. And I also was shy... although I’m sure those experiences helped get me over it... eventually!
Really enjoying these podcasts.
