As you know, the Newsfriends podcast never shy’s away from serious topics: like selling snow huts as a topical real estate joke, getting a zombie outbreak by way of deer and Discussing what to do about people that ‘defect’ from ISIS… wait, is that right? we’re tackling that one?
Well, since we recorded the podcast much earlier this week, not too much has happened since the last one. But one thing that certainly did happen was the most boring Super Bowl ever. Talking about Advertisements and Adam Levine’s nipples were a far more interesting conversation than the buzz that didn’t happen about the game itself.
So that’s where we’re at this week.
It’s that time again, where we use the beginning of the year to assess our mental health. But before we even talk about what ails. We chat about furries, killers and advertisements. So really, what is there to even rant about? clearly everything is fine and it’s routine as usual.
WHAT A WEEK HUH!? It seems like it was a non stop new cycle about a little boy and old man staring at each other to a beating drum. Then the left had their time to shine for being something that we only ever see the right be. What can I say, people are weird. I mean look at our Host, he complains about a shitty t-shirts that people shouldn’t buy.
But aside from shitty t-shirts, and threatening children, we can all agree that people are JUST TERRIBLE.
It’s the first NewsFriends podcast of 2019, and what better way to get into it then playing catchup in the form of a Q&A. A very short Q&A, like 4 questions, and then a longer discussion about millennials. It’s almost like a regular podcast, BUT NOT QUITE!
It’s that time again for the last NewsFriends podcast of the year, where Michael does his best to look into all the stories that were pretty significant in 2018. Which is probably tell why it’s a bit on the short side this year.
OH WELL, 2018 is done, let’s look forward to the new year with a new outlook on the news we gotta report on.
It’s word of the year time as we get through sexting donations, money thieving nuns, and the start of Kevin Hart’s career decline. Or something like that. Also video games snuck into the podcast this week.
What do you do when you’re a super popular blogging site that has a pornography problem? create bots to get rid of it while jeopardizing your entire user base in the process. But it’s not all bad, we talk about vaping, hockey pucks as defense against shooters and everyone’s favourite christmas song.
It’s seems like only yesterday the podcast was away for two weeks, well Michael’s not busy this time, and neither was Melissa so they chat about Call centres, curling and gender before getting into the gritty and ever loving conversation that is Journalism criticism.
Look at this! an Episode of the NewsFriends podcast is uploaded EXACTLY on Halloween day. Do you know what that means? SCARY STORES! OOOoOoooOoOoOO!
Cannabis is now legal in Canada, so what better way to talk about it than a couple of days later, and not having any time to talk about the thing that’s happening in Metro Vancouver that is probably more important. Voting.
Now that Michael is back in BC, it’s time for a podcast! Though it’s not quite back to being a regular show just yet. Melissa joins him this week to catch up on all the things that matter: BC fires, the end of the world, eSports tournaments and that guy that really likes beer.
There was one last week, supposedly. but the bad internet kind of screwed up the recording. BUT here's a new one, JUST FOR YOU. We talk about the latest game news, because it's news worthy and we also talk about what Michael has been up to in Flin Flon. SPOILERS: a lot of work.
Slow news day, and slow Doc week. Michael has been working and had no time to do anything, but he grabbed Kira again and did another short podcast! WOWZA!
Yes, your host of the NewsFriends podcast is working on a project in sunny Flin Flon, Manitoba. What is he doing and why is he doing it? What is the sunless city? Those questions answered AND MORE if you can actually make out what he's saying.
It's E3 week, so we try our best to talk about video games before we get into the ever looming problems of the political world. So some of the news is great some of it is terrible. and you're either here for one or the other. One thing's for sure, it's a podcast!
When Samantha Bee dropped the C-word we did everything in our power to make the last half of this podcast really hard to listen to... If you don't like the c-word.
Sure BC has some things to talk about, with it's pipeline and it's #Vanre, and yeah there's aggressive creep catchers and toddler's lives are in danger because of Pokemon Go. but who care about any of that when Roseanne is going through a real tough life lesson right now?
What this is supposed to be, is a regular podcast tackling subjects ranging from sex cults to royal weddings, but what it turned into was an hour of bad audio. Michael didn't double check every little thing before recording, so unbeknownst to him, the mic settings were completely wrong.
But the show must go on, just imagine that you're listening to an AM radio station a little bit off the right setting.
We changed the format this week! Since Michael has always been a fan of quiz shows and always wanted to live the dream of hosting one himself, he asked for the help of Lauren and Jake to compete in a facts based quiz about current news. Who wins? you'll have to find out but one thing's for sure, we're all winners!
