This week Temba talks about a new pop up social media spot called Eye Candy Toronto where you can show off to your followers cool set pieces like blockbuster, gold vault, pizza room, disco ring etc. the only problem Temba has is with the private jet and why so many people have this social media illness to try and seem more happy and to feed their ego and seem more important than they actually are.

This has to be one of the most scuffed podcasts ever. Right off the bat, 10 seconds in, there is already a connection drop that makes the intro sound awkward AF lol, discord decides to mute my mic on Terry's end here and there and Terry's Chinese phone-book WiFi makes it sound like he is muting himself after every sentences sometimes, but our smooth transitions make up for it, and make it that much more entertaining. Anyways, this week we talk about a report suggesting Ontario schools not...
