Real Life Covid

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

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!

10/12/2020

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.

E069 - Everyone's Favourite Episode

3/29/2020
Like many of you in the world we’ve just come out of quarantine after our trip abroad (not unlike Punxsutawney Phil). Healthy and happy - albeit a little twitchy - and making the best out physical distancing and isolation by making weird videos, podcasts, playing video games and generally being grateful for every day. Please join us in thanking medical professionals, city workers, grocery store employees, farmers, truckers... (the list could go on and on) for going above and beyond in this...

E068 - Tropic Vacation Goes Viral

3/15/2020
Dropbear and Panda are back from their epic adventures across Maui, Hawaii, just in time to get quarantined-not-quarantined thanks to the ever-so popular CORVID-19 Flu Virus Pandemic that’s sweeping the nation like a brand-new boy band. We met some amazing animals and people in our travels including adventurous Jay and Miranda from Washington. We snorkeled, scuba’d, hiked, hung out with turtles, dove with sharks, ate great food, drank fancy drinks, played with roosters, and sang badly and...

E067 - The Pre-Maui Micro Episode

2/29/2020
After a long winter Dropbear and Panda need a break. What better way to take a break than go on a creative retreat and do some location scouting?

Bad Narwhal is hanging out with Newton in Calgary while we investigate the animals, fauna and undersea world of our Polynesian friends on the island of Maui.

E066 - The Banging Season Episode

E065 - DR DONT-EVEN-A-LITTLE EPISODE

2/3/2020
Dropbear & Panda were sent on a very special mission for this episode by a listener: to gather vital information on a very bizarre film called, "Doctor Doolittle" and we've reported back to say that... well, we definitely saw it. Oh boy, did we ever see it. GB left the EU and DB&P and the rest of the alphabet still seem confused about it all. The coronavirus is making the rounds and the best way to save the world this week is to kick back and buy a whole lot of hot chocolate. LINKS FOUND...

E064 - Winter is Ballz Episode

1/19/2020
When the planet is topsy-turvy and it seems like there's very little good in the world, Dropbear and Panda are on the case to find the fun with news, reviews, and ways to save the world that might actually work. We've been nominated for ‘Outstanding Production in a Series’ by the Canadian Podcast Awards, we discover a strange military tradition in Canada at the handle of a shovel, review both the Underwater movie and 1917, and we're still on a tear to help Australia in whatever way we...

E0063 - The Jellicle Cat's Ass Episode
