089 – Dinero Targaryen

Play

Live from a toilet at the bottom of a well! It’s alex leafcrunch! Val is also here but they sound normal. Imagine they’re sitting on the sill of the well and keeping her company so she doesn’t feel so alone down there. It’s just like that one episode of the Simpsons. The dynamic two-o give you the lowdown on your soon-to-be-favourite sovereign songwriter city-state, your already-favourite presidential paper purveyor Parnas, your anti-favourite car clasping clam contraption, and more. We also solve Game of Thrones (the answer is Dinero Targaryen). Just goes to show, there’s lots of time for solving life’s little mysteries when you’re at the bottom of a well, inside of a toilet.

048 – Time to Le

Play

CW: a storyline in this week’s episode features a lot of transphobia, which we discuss multiple times throughout the recording

Things you’re not gonna learn from this episode of CGMD because you already know them to be true: Mega Lopunny is the sluttiest pokemon and transphobia sure wasn’t any less bad in the year 2000. Things you WILL learn from this episode of CGMD: the technical definition of a pond, Alex’s feelings on chicken welfare, and the possible meaning of “brown sauce.” Anyway, season 3 episode 18, Cock a Doodle Doo!, was absolute dog shit, so thankfully we’re joined by amazing friend of the show alex leafcrunch to make everything better. Time to le!

070 – Shoes Are Trains For Your Feet

Play

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.

On a very special episode of HKIPGTD, alex leafcrunch and Eden forego the usual format to mostly talk about the Sl*voj Z*zek vs. J*rdan P*terson d*bate that happened a couple months back in T*ronto. Sorry for saying so many bad words but it’s our duty as journalists to report the truth. Anyway our recording had pretty bad tech issues! Luckily we didn’t have to throw any of it out, but our apologies for Eden cutting out sporadically. Thank you to our listeners for sending in questions and guiding the conversation!
