082 – Ellen the Generosity

Play

This one’s a whole lotta episode! Val and Sara squeeze in topics from last week while also talking about dem debates, Ellen the Generous’s choice in friends, The Blob, and some normal guys doing normal things like writing letters and ignoring subpoenas. We get to the bottom of what PG&E stands for, and what should be done about transgender kids who have to pee. Spoiler alert for that second one: it’s letting them be kids!
Make sure to listen all the way to the end for a funny cheese.

Hosted by Sara and Val (making their debut as editor).

BONUS EPISODE – The Canadian Federal Hellection

Play

Hello friends and well-wishers, today we have two of the Canadian hosts of our fair pod to help explain the Canadian political system with help from our friends Bean (from The Island Shuffle) and Emma (who joined us for our Ontario Election special last year). We go over the political parties (all six of them!), the parliamentary system and talk about why chasing the centre is a waste of time. We also talk about polls a lot. Hooray, polls!

Of note: Zoey’s audio file had some connection issues, which were most prominent around 16 min and 24 min. There wasn’t much we could do about it so we just edited around it.

Our primary sources of polling data and electoral metrics were 338Canada and CBC’s Poll Tracker.

079 – The Real Story Is Also That [Director’s Cut]

Play

Apologies for the confusion, the first version of this episode had some severe audio issues, so we took it down to re-edit. This is the final, fixed version, including 7 minutes and 29 seconds of content that was previously unusable.

Little bit of an easy-listening episode this week, as we gather round to talk about other podcasts and try to remember which countries we’re all actually from. Topics this week include: Trudeau’s brownface uh-ohs, the bad state of political reporting, the worsening tension in US-Saudi-Iranian-Yemeni relations, and worst of all: more mueller report shit. We also talk about the ongoing UAW strike, updates on the straight-pride protestors, and some loser getting banned from FurFest

Hosted by MattSam, and Val.
Edited badly and then re-edited goodly by Patrick.

078 – The Whip is Involved

Play

One of the greats has left us. We gather here today to discuss the falling of a titan, the passing of one of the last few old souls left in the world. We speak, of course, of Jeremy Renner The App. It’ll live forever in our hearts. In addition to that post-mortem, Matt Gamecube talks about some stupidity in Canadian politics, Val gives us the rundown on the gross shit that happened at the Proud Boys’s Straight Pride parade in Boston, and then Matt takes on the unenviable task of trying to explain what the fuck happened in UK politics this week.

Hosted by Val, Matt Gamecube, and Matt (not Gamecube)!
