COVID Classics – 15 – Cubs On The Loose (Kids w/ Isla, Leon & Penny)

Here we all are, in self isolation, many of us with our kids. And because of this, we took these last couple of weeks off from podcasting, which means, it's time for a COVID Classic! We present to you, Cubs On The Loose, featuring some of our very favourite kids, talking about kid stuff! We've made this one kid-friendly, so you can listen together, although BEWARE - the topic of sex does come up in the podcast. Also, we are sponsored by Just The Tip Handpoke Tattoos. There is an ad upfront,...


50 – PieCast! (Pi Day Party w/ Kassy Boulay & Josh Reil)

It's The Pie-Cast featuring two of our most experty pie-preneur pals, Kassy Boulay and Josh Reil of the Perth Pie Company. We get the Pi Day party started with the humble pie's origin story, and then get into some wacky pie facts, favourite pies, pie crust hacks, surprise pies, pie-litical assault pies and more! Grab a slice and join the party, 'cause you are at least 3.14 times more likely to have a deliciously great time with us in your ears than you will without. PIE! Find the Perth Pie...


49 – We Are Killin’ It (True Crime w/ Melody & Liz)

This one might have you covered for your commute and back. It's a little lengthy but SO totally worth it. Liz Cooper is back with Melody Starkweather and they're covering two completely fascinating true crime stories: The Zodiac Killer, a bizarre and compelling Bay Area serial killer case that's gone completely cold AND Charles Starkweather, the rampage killing James Dean lookalike who murdered 11 people and 2 dogs with his 14-year-old girlfriend in the winter of '57/'58. We've gone full...

Disclaimer: THIS EPISODE IS ALL ABOUT SEX. Find Miss Jones on Facebook at...


47 – Stormin’ Mormon (Mormonism w/ Stephanie McGee and Megan Lefebvre)

Let's talk about Mormons! Melody's bud from work Megan Lefebvre joins her in this chat with ex-Mormon and ex-Utahn Stephanie McGee. We start out with a quick primer on Mormonism and the American Jesus. Steph tells us about her upbringing and how her Mormon "shelf" came crashing down. We cover Joseph Smith's death mask, different levels of Hell, coffee as a gateway drug, Mormon underwear, performance reviews, the teachings of South Park and much, much more. There's also a super fun Mormon...


46 – Heavy Metal Ham (Metal Music w/ Steve Needham)

This week we are getting loud and thick and heavy with Steve Needham, who needs some ham. (And on that note, he needs a better nickname, too.) Nikki Rochon Kaiser joins Melody and Steve for this heavy metal deep dive. We talk metal origins, terminology, best intros, guitar shredding, Satanic Panic, Slayer (of course), Indonesian metal, and more. Do some neck warm-ups, tiger babies, 'cause we are going headbanging! You can find Steve and his band Eve of Uprise on YouTube here or on Spotify...


45 – This Is 2019 (Year In Review w/ Chris and Melody)

Happy New Year, Tigers! May we all put the teens behind us and forge ahead victorious into the Roaring Twenty-Twenties. Before we do that, though, maybe we should reminisce a little about our last year as a teenager. In this 2019 wrap-up, Chris Chambers co-hosts the pod. Melody and Chris walk listeners through a Teach Me Tiger top ten countdown with clips from our favourite episodes. There are great stories, jokes jokes jokes and a whole lotta fun facts. Tune in for the best of 2019,...

We've finally got an expert, who ADMITS TO BEING AN EXPERT! Meet Viara Mileva, PhD, who studied genetics, maternal behaviour, child-parent attachment and bedsharing. She knows a lot of sciencey stuff about mothering, and is also just a badass mother. (And a badass photographer!) After some auxiliary chat about limb loss and California, Viara gives us the science-based lowdown on SIDS, attachment, and bedsharing and then pontificates on technology and Cardi B. Here is a link to a video on the...


42 – Hotel Sleepover Funtime! (Hotel Hauntings/Sleep Facts w/ Katerina Theodorelos & Nikki Rochon Kaiser)

What do you get when you put three adult women and BFFs in a Days Inn to catch up over Prosecco? F*cking hilarity! And some fun facts! Melody and her old (but obviously very young and hot) Toronto roommates Katerina Theodorelos (of Episode 1) and Nikki Rochon Kaiser (of Episode 33) got together, mic'ed up, and just had the best time ever. Although Kat fell asleep (cause there's always one that falls asleep at the slumber party) she managed first to tell us some wild and crazy stories about...

We discuss favourite childhood video games, widely-held myths about gamers and gaming, and the very nebulous Gamergate of 2014. The boys also explain some internet lingo and...
