Double Down with Garrett and Mack
Monday at 2 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Variety Channel
This show starts out as a base of two football moms, but it goes so much further than that. We talk about community issues that impact our world. We talk about raising kids and bringing them to the greatness they are today. We talk about motherhood, women in leadership and so much more. We bring tough talking issues to the table, we spread our crazy senses of humor around and overall, we make the show fun, informative, touching and down to earth. Tune in to Double Down with Garrett and Mack, broadcasting live every Monday at 2 PM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Variety Channel.
