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)!

077 – Could Be Big Joe

Play

Our usual British correspondent Alex was busy so we brought on a very special and very Scottish guest to fill us in on all the latest from across the pond. What is proroguing? Can you cook it in a skillet? Will the Matts be forced into unarmed combat to establish dominance, or will they do what the Alexes did and just sort themselves by capitalization preference? Will Val download Jeremy Renner, the Jeremy Renner app? Listen to find out the answers to some of those things, and more!

Batten down the hatches, everyone – Matt got a soundboard. Amidst all the clips blasted out of his computer, alex leafcrunch and Val break down Bernie’s Laborpalooza plan, Matt bargains for Greenland, alex falls down some stairs and experiences a heated podcasting moment, Tangerine Lemon proves the haters wrong, and Brooks gets softblocked.

075 – My Friend, Racist

Play

It’s a doozy this week folks! Caroline and Alex dive deep into a discussion of the completely normal circumstances of Epstein’s death, as well as some details about his life. So, content warning for discussion of child sexual assault and trafficking throughout. There are lighter topics though! Topics like the president yelling at the tv! Topics like the British government’s anti-knife crime advertisements! You’ll never guess where they put them unracistly. Tune in to find out, and don’t forget to leave an acorn on your windowsill for your neighbour Racist [editor’s note: i forgot the plot of my neighbour totoro so that last one’s just a guess]

Folks! It’s Democratic Debates…. 2!

Matt watched them and tried to explain them to Val and alex leafcrunch, who did not, and a bad time was had by all. We also discuss nationalized health care and transit from a Canadian perspective, online accessibility and brainstorm which biblical plague is coming for us next.

All relevant links have been put on our Twitter this week, except for the article about Centralia, PA, which can be found here.

Democracy dies in darkness, folks, if you’re not using your money to fund Washington Post comparing Robert Mueller to Pickle Rick. Eden and Sara do their best to give them some freebies, as well as some follow-up gamer moments and the return of everyone’s favourite federal judiciary power: Execution!

HKIPGTD would like to welcome our newest host, Val! The gang discusses our favourite invertebrate, Nancy Pelosi, how Richard Spencer clearly wasn’t punched hard enough, the inherent dehumanization and wage theft present in low-wage labour and imposed colonial pressures in the modern day. All fun stuff! We also briefly lose our god damn minds when finding out about Cory Booker’s brother, Cary Booker, which took over conversation so completely that not even being mad about Game of Thrones Emmy’s could dislodge it.

At around 38 minutes, Caroline’s mic exploded mid-sentence so we just picked up with a different topic upon her return to the living.

Sorry this one’s so late! Got a bit tied up in editing so we’re a bit behind the times – nonetheless, we’re here to podcast! But more importantly, we’re here to give you an honest, no-bullshit take on something that’s been on top of everyone’s minds: what is up with everyone’s 2020 campaign logo? We also get to the hard-hitting questions like “What games are Nancy Pelosi playing?” On top of that, Sara gives an impassioned plea, and Roy gives us an update on the Virginia governor. Lastly, wife of the show and burden of America Fallon joins us to talk a bit about Vic Mignogna’s deposition, as well inviting YOU to join the Resembool Rangers!

America was too busy popping off fireworks if you know what I mean (popping off fireworks) so it’s kind of a Canadian one! We talk a lot about environmental justice and how it affects every aspect of our lives. Don’t worry, we also talk about the communist Betsy Ross shoes and the political alignment of sandals.
