Michael Screwed up this week, so he made a podcast to explain himself.
Monday night was a big night for CBC's flagship program, so why not have a conversation about it before Canadaland tears it to shreds. That's right, we watched the National and then immediately had a post mortem because we're obviously experts in the field of broadcast programming. (plz like share and subscribe follow us on social, join the conversation.)
Spacey couldn't have picked a weirder way to do his own PR, of apologizing for assaulting a minor by coming out as a gay man. But a Site C report picked the best time to be released so we can salivate over all the information and hope for the best... Well, at least the BC government should be a little rocky over the decision moving forward.
Also: Robots, AM I RIGHT?
It's that time of year again where Michael edits the podcast a little extra dumb. Deanna also joins this week with a tale that's sure to make people squirm. We talk about Sweating blood, to Starbucks, to how we experienced horror as children. So sit tight this week, the scary starts NOW!
In the scope of Canadian made podcasts, there's a surprising amount out there. So why can't we find them? Are we just not looking? And when there are those that are successful, what should be done to bring awareness of others? We talk at length about podcasts, and Radio, and pumpkin butts too.
Though it's not the first about a man in hollywood having a laundry list of sexual abuse allegations, it will probably not be the last either. Which is probably why we just went off tangent and talked about the film industry in Canada in an unrelated way to that Weinstein fellow.
And also something about Rick and Morty.
Maybe the title of this week's podcast is a little on the nose, but it's almost thematic. Melissa and Michael talk about a wide range of subjects from Weiner to eye tats to rediculous fancy places that Vancouver doesn't really need but we have it anyway.
With all these natural disasters and man made disasters happening throughout the world, Michael and Melissa are here to soften the blow with stories about Dogs running for Mayor, Shkreli going to jail and sex robots ready to commit murder (just say the word.) Then we talk about hurricanes because things have just been happening since the last time we did one of these.
Though we missed a week, we make up for it with a brand new segment called "EXPLAIN THINGS TO DAD." The only problem is Michael ended up knowing a lot more about the subject than either Melissa or Julia...
... At least we can now fit in with the alt-right demographic that seems to be worshipping Taylor Swift.
Michael, Deanna and Melissa chat about how the weekend proved hatred has no place in Canada. because it was a nice day, and it was the weekend, what else is love going to do? Love went down to counter protest 2 hours earlier and turned the damn thing into a block party.
Also: Drag Queens kick ass, Thieves can still be dumb and Joss Whedon is a guy.
Godfrey checks in from Penticton to discuss conventions, solar eclipses and racist jerks. Him and Michael also spend a lot of time on the events that happened over the weekend, but then find something positive to talk about in a likely place?
Though Vancouver continues to be as smokey as ever, it didn't stop people from going out and enjoying themselves during the pride weekend. So Melissa and Michael chat about that for a bit, as well as loneliness death, Microsoft Office competitions and even that popular social topic 'The Swastika'.
Obviously this podcast is nothing like the National, but I bet we would cover stories like they wouldn't. Murder because of laughter? Check! expensive car destroyed after hour of purchase? BOOM! All the pasta you could eat? If ears are mouths then loosen that belt! Melissa, Edrick and Michael Break it all down.
Michael, Deanna and Kayla now face a really "tough question": What do you do when a story debunking website faces problems and is in danger of shutting down? Do you fight for it, or start a new website? Maybe you should listen to this week's episode for insight, along with stories of an old jewel thief. Teens in trouble for watching a man drown, Michael Phelps races imagination and MS paint died, but not really.
From the banning of Winnie the Pooh from the Chinese government to the declaration that maybe the world wouldn't be in so much trouble if we just had less kids. One thing is clear, Michael is spending an awful lot of time on the subject of lighting things on fire... Melissa and Edrick are doing an awfully good job stoking that flame.
After being away for two weeks, NewsFriends is back and still miraculously in season 4. Edrick joins Michael this week to talk about getting shot at a sex party, the first baby to not be assigned a gender, We need to stop talking about Canuck the crow, buttholes don't go well with food, AND that whole #CNNBlackmail thing.
and happy belated birthday Canada.
It's that time of year when that large Video game trade show happens in LA. where hoards of fans look for as much juicy details of the next big titles. After absorbing a weeks worth of content, Michael, Brian and Edrick sit down for a chat. What was the best, what wasn't the best, and what did we take away from the whole thing.
The podcast really took a turn this week. I can't stress enough how much NOT SAFE FOR WORK it is this time... We talk about a lot of things Sex related. whether it's sexual acts, orientations, and viewing habits. It's just chalk full of it this week.
This isn't the podcast that you think it is this week. Instead we get another visit from old man Michael, Edrick rants about something worth caring about and Melissa knows more about sea animals then the rest of us.
We also debate the French language I guess?
Michael wanted to change up the format that required more than one person to be a guest. Unfortunately that didn't happen, but we went ahead with the thing anyway.
Godfrey enters the fray this week and Michael asks questions to see just how much of the news he's paid attention to in the past while.
