E090 - The First Dose is Thick

6/6/2021
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…. Better yet, we’ll just tell you that we don’t know about UFOs, but if you click here we’ll explain to you what we don’t know even though we don’t know enough to know how to tell you what we do or do not know… Hint: It’s in the name. They click-baited us with promises of UFO clarification, but all we got is more of the same. Panda "Overtoned", Dropbear loves Cruella, and… click here to find out how we save the world.

E089 - Not Even On The Radar

5/23/2021
When UFOs show up and barely make it on the radar (no pun intended) that’s definitely… something to think about. Over some good gin and a new sock jingle, of course! We talk drones and UFOs, review Viva la Dirt League’s "Baelin’s Route", and muse over BroodX cicadas and wildlife conservation. Not a bad way to spend a typical wet, cool Victoria Day Long weekend.

E088 - Crossing Swords With Nobody Episode

4/25/2021
We've got two reviews today - and we’re not angry with one, per se… just disappointed. Which (if we take any cue from our parents) is worse than being mad. Much, much worse. A man from Italy finally gets busted after skipping work for 15 years, Panda tests her taste buds by doing the ol’ orange juice & toothpaste trick, and we celebrate Calgary’s Centre for Newcomers for all the good they do.

E087 - Slap Your Chicken Episode

4/11/2021
The most important question we have to ask ourselves - Is Panda’s no taste and smell strong enough to withstand a chicken cooked by a robotic slapping machine? Our podcast isn’t just about the science of slapping chickens this week; we also talk about DMX and Prince Philip, agonize over Eivor’s bird-eyes in AC Valhalla, and vow to send a Sock Rocket package to The Good Neighbour Project.

E086 - Peep Into the Bigfoot Family War Room Episode

3/28/2021
We review Bigfoot Family: the most controversial, dangerous movie ever to grace our Albertan television screens. Never before have we witnessed anything so…. Wait, is that a jive-talking raccoon?? Even more perplexing than magical Bigfoot offspring, is marshmallow-flavoured Pepsi. What is this world coming to?! Thank goodness we have a new Sock Jingle, and wonderful people like Judy Obregone of Abandoned Ones Animal Rescue. We salute you, Judy. Become an official supporter Dropbear and...

E085 - The Capo-no-you-d'int Episode

3/14/2021
Thanks (?) to our knack for reviewing bad movies, we were asked to review “CAPONE”… and boy, was it ever… a thing... that we did. Sort of. The Alberta War Room attacks an animated film for children, we praise two gentlemen in Fukushima who care for pets left behind, and we have a new sock jingle! Plus, Dropbear tries the “Burnt Orange” trick to bring Panda’s taste and smell back the only way he knows how - disastrously. Become an official supporter Dropbear and Panda on our Patreon Page...

E084 - The Seven Footer Episode

2/28/2021
We’re recording at Kensington Studio this weekend but we can’t seem to escape the snowblowers outside. We think they’re stalking us. Send help. Or…. less snow. Filming commercials in the time of Covid, sharks with feet are keeping Australia on their toes, Netflix has some hits and misses when it comes to Reality TV, and a tiny Koala gets a new lease on life thanks to... a Dentist??!?

E083 - The Covid Exploded Episode

2/14/2021
We’re back after 4 weeks off - but THE SHOW MUST GO ON - albeit a little short of breath, but un-isolated this time, and just in time to completely ignore Valentines Day. We discuss how Panda’s Covid prognosis quickly went downhill, plus Gorilla Glue hairdos and toothpaste mohawks, how to escape deserted islands with or without a TV crew, and we think back to those who saved our world over the last month. We appreciate all of you. Become an official supporter Dropbear and Panda on our...

E082 - Real Life Covid Episode

1/17/2021
This week we go remote because Dropbear and Panda have been separated by COVID-19. Yep. Poor Panda caught ‘The Vid’ at her work in Health Services and is finding the positives in her positive; Dropbear has been living in isolated exile to ensure it doesn’t spread. So this week we’re doing the podcast via ZOOM. Not ones to be downers, we found some fun news about some out-of-this-world samosas, honest menus, and food that is horrible to put in your mouth if you can’t taste or smell...

E081 - The Review Preview Episode

1/3/2021
We do our best to do a quick review of 2020 without going completely insane - is THAT what gave Panda a headache? Or was it all the cookies she ate during quarantine? At least we isolated, unlike… Canadian politicians. What will 2021 bring? Aliens, probably. Do these aliens have feet? Do they wear socks? We hope so! We’d love to give them some socks. Unless they have tentacles, then things might get awkward. Become an official supporter Dropbear and Panda on our Patreon Page for as little...

E080 - The Feetometre Spider Episode

12/20/2020
It’s our last episode before Christmas so we have to mention Christmas at least once or twice - in between stories of Cocaine Ghost Ships and Space Force Guardians! We re-examine our favourite music videos and delve into the best and worst holiday movies we’ve seen; and we really ‘SockRocket’ it to three lucky people who have helped save the world - spiders might or might not be included.

E079 - Crave the World Episode

12/6/2020
Episode 79 brings you the new & highly anticipated Sock Rocket Sock Jingle by Rob and WOW it’s mind-blowing! Panda’s head exploded two days ago and we still haven’t gathered it all back up yet. We’ve got Christmas Stars & collapsing telescopes in science news, graffiti artists winning lawsuits & Warner Bros being bros in art news. A YYC Choreographer won big at the UK Music Video Awards, and we’re sending socks to a mushroom coffin scientist in the Netherlands! Become an official supporter...

E078 - Eat Your Face Episode

11/22/2020
Episode 78 is a weird one. Soylent Green might actually become a thing—Grow-A-Steak is coming your way—to cannibalise, or not to cannibalise, AMIRITE? Panda wants to learn what her cat is really saying with Meow Talk, we review Truth Seekers, and Rob Mitchelson blows us away with a Sock Rocket Christmas Commercial we didn’t know we wanted. We thank Dickens Pub and Broken City for helping save the world by sending some Sock Rocket goods their way. Stay safe! Become an official supporter...

E077 - New World Order Episode

11/8/2020
Nothing is stopping us this week—Biden is in, Shaw Internet is out, and Tesla is…a tequila? Dying Tieflings, dirty Rogue Wood Elves, and skateboard credenzas are also the list of topics today. We save the world with pay-it-forward music lessons, Remembrance Day, and we’ve paired up with Sock Rocket on a new kick-ass adventure!

E076 - The Panda Proclamation Episode

10/25/2020
Will Dropbear ever get over the fact that Panda is right? Because she’s right, you know. He was wrong, and she was right. Find out in this exciting episode. Tim Hortons and Burger King are going to try out a new take-out system; the Tesla Roadster passed by Mars looking a little worse-for-wear. We talk Assassins Creed Origins vs Odyssey, Star Wars, and save the world with Halloween, and Socks for the homeless. Did we mention that Panda was right? Oh, and Boobies! The birds, we mean!

E075 - The Dewey Eggs Episode

10/12/2020
Dropbear bought Star Wars: Squadrons VR and his brain exploded like an unfortunate Alderaan incident. Giant sharks invade Nova Scotia, Elon Musk’s Roadster invades Mars, we review Function of Panda, and save the world with a hospital home lottery and egg muffins.

E074 - The Second Coming Episode

9/27/2020
We’re back from Summer Holidays and filming adventures with a mini-episode just in time to save the world! And guess what? We’re nominated for The People’s Choice Podcast Awards for Best Comedy Podcast along with Amy Schumer and Kevin Bacon! We make some new friends, Pepin and Meader, from the We Need To Talk Podcast. Vin Diesel is pivoting careers, and in a glimpse of the evil that is OK Google, she tries to get us into trouble with Usher. All this and more in our mini Come Back...

E073 - Like Chocolate and Peanut Butter

5/23/2020
We’re about to go on a hiatus but before we go we want to make sure you know that in this episode we say, “Kevin Bacon’s wiener” an uncomfortable number of times: more than four, and fewer than twelve. Nathan Fillion pays it forward and Michael J Fox thanks Alberta Health Services, we review Dante’s Peak and Tremors, and save the world with Panda’s homemade chocolate banana bread. It’s the little things that keep us going. Become an official supporter Dropbear and Panda on our Patreon Page...

E072 - Ow My Royal Booty

5/9/2020
Dropbear and Panda are all about gardening this episode; and it’s not as boring as you think! There are booty injuries fit for a QUEEN! Not only are there severe gardening injuries, but there are murder hornets, hero bees, and free Alberta wildflower seed mix! Oh, and we also discuss assault rifles and feminist board game disasters, but gardening just seems much more dangerous.

E071 - Clean Yes Germ No Episode

4/25/2020
We’ve moved to our studio in cSpace and doing our best to ride out the apocalypse the best way we know how - by talking about Hubble space news, reviewing terrible movies, and reminding people not to snort lines of ajax. The world is a pretty messed up place and we’re all doing the best we can. We’re trying to save the world the only way we know how—by spreading some laughs, some satire, and love—and reminding all of you not to give up, to stay safe, and take care of each other.
