Dropbear and Panda welcome Dan "No Bear" Gauld to the show to talk about why he started the NO CALGARY OLYMPICS movement, and what it means to him and our city. Rife with profanity and considered opinions on all sides, there's even a bet on the outcome; and Dropbear says he'll even give Mayor Nenshi $100 towards the games. Dropbear is a romantic and is all about the Olympics; Panda is a hard-nope until sitting by roaring fires while drinking craft beer becomes a winter sport. And Dan?...

Canada just legalized marijuana, there are line-ups around the block, and we're getting reports it's like the Apple Store, but for weed. We take a quick trip down mammary lane to the Red Mile for the Calgary Flames playoff run. We recycle and compost like a boss and chat about adding worms to our compost. Speaking of worms, apparently Ticketmaster got busted for admitting collusion-ee type activities with scalpers. And Dropbear has a new rifle. LINKS MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE Legalized...

Snow is still falling at the Dropbear and Panda Studios and there's word climate change isn't messing around anymore.

We talk theatre, octopus comedy, why Dropbear shouldn't wear crappy shoes, and how Panda and the Scorpio Theatre team killed it during their run of "Women Playing Hamlet". LINKS MENTIONED...

When in charge of saving the world you need to take it seriously. This week we talk about getting sick, Toronto getting bullied, lobsters getting stoned, Douglas Adams, and politicians who look like Vogons. We're not news reporters—more like news commentators—and this week we take umbrage with the "MEDIA" in general. Except of course that cool reporter who talked with our foreign correspondent, Badger, in Russia. LINKS MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE Doug Ford's Revenge What the heck is a...

Canada confirms it has performed its first ever face transplant—no not the country—doctors did this to a person, not the country, that would be ridiculous. Doug Ford is pondering using the NOTWITHSTANDING CLAUSE to effectively overturn a Superior Court decision which says he can't unilaterally change the number of wards in the City of Toronto, Zach Braff weighs in on the Paul McCartney masturbation story, Winnipeg has run out of mosquitos, and Nike is kicking ass.

Can we agree that the Eighties were a weird time all around? It's cool to see some things are coming back into vogue like solid punk, thrash, and the band Suicidal Tendencies, but lets hope neon stays where it belongs. In this episode we get into it over both awesome and awful music videos, NAFTA, our world filled with earthquakes, losing fingers on waterslides, Dax Shepard, and video games. Somehow we come out the other side having saved the world yet again. LINKS TO STUFF MENTIONED IN...
