Canada Day is coming up. We celebrate how Canadians celebrate. DNTO has a story about a professional butt shaker and ladies debate showing off their assets in high heels or flats. Also...say "Canada Day" three times fast.
Father's Day is coming up. Celebrate by putting your foot in your mouth, deciding whether to have a baby, pretending to be proud of your pint-sized astronomer, and watching some awful reality TV. Love you, Dads!
We boldly go where we didn't have the research money to go before! Is William Shatner the world's best actor? Can medicine cure the common zit? What is a medical isotope? Did host Jane Testar pass grade 11 Science?!
Cut the legs off your jeans and you've got the Canadian bikini, a pair of Jorts!(jean shorts). Now mow your lawn. Pure class. Nuclear bombs, Margaret Atwood and Stewart McLean, letters to the Tooth Fairy, and epic retail kingdoms.
Too bad laughter isn't the best medicine for the environment. We've got the Debaters deciding the fate of the Senate, The Irrelevant Show smashing stereotypes, DNTO saving the animals and a whole lot of earthy humour. Pesticide-free.
Not cool enough for Lollapalooza? Not enough of a dirt-bag for Coachella? We have a DNTO story from the CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival (where jean shorts and chevron tank-tops are the minority), The Debaters, and Archie gets gritty...like feet at Coachella.
Don't jinx it, but it's spring time in Canada. Time for words of wisdom from Coach at the Irrelevant Show, fewer embarrassing car crash stories (via DNTO), small talk at social gatherings with The Debaters and time to parade that royal baby around.
No need to worry about a bucket of water over your door with THIS podcast. Instead, we have Rick Mercer, an epic movie speech from the Irrelevant Show, a skimpy story from DNTO and a guilt trip about your old light bulbs from host Jane Testar.
We give Finance Minister Jim Flaherty a send-off with Rick Mercer and a sketch from the vault. The Irrelevant Show teaches us an ancient Canadian form of self-defence and the Debaters discuss the value of free edumacation...and apparently we need it.
*Wawa pedal guitar* The Debaters tackle online dating, the Irrelevant Show knows a guy who really loves the ladies, John Wing has a...not so sexy doppelganger and The Fixer tries to get you away from your porn...well the screen in general.
We look at Canadian pride and shame. From a historic moment from the Irrelevant Show, to Rob Ford's probability factors, to Canadians feeling pride outside a sporting event on The Fixer, and Rick Mercer isn't that proud of a certain Liberal leader these
