We run over some recent news events like the hurricane and Paul Davis leaving the PC party. Nick talks about what kind of flooring he prefers in a store, then we need to learn what not to say to international students, so we check out a video with instructions for morons. We look into the clown stories, but Nick is not buying it and thinks all the reports are made up. There’s always something to be offended about, and this time it’s a sign at the Breezeway. Then we talk about MUN’s “lockdown” when it was reported that a man was on campus with a gun. Should we have a 0 tolerance drunk driving law? A chat about drinking empty beer bottles and enjoying cookies ends the show for another week.
A trend that has spooked many parts of North America now seems to have made its way across the pond to Newfoundland!
While many are speculating about the situation, it’s impossible to be sure exactly what’s happening. Many cases appear to be pranksters trying to scare people, yet there have been more severe serious stories involving threats and even a murder. The uncertainty has led to a number of posts online reporting sightings, and others threatening to harm any clowns they spot.
A kids level of telling on somebody, with adult level consequences.
The boys spend this episode talking about the whole Twitter fiasco with Joel, how it went down behind the scenes, what it’s like to be at the center of a controversy that made national news, the lies that were spread, and the comments received.

The boys are back, and Nick starts by explaining how he got out of being locked in a bathroom. We talk about the new Eastern Health campaign to stop students from drinking so much. While on the topic of bad habits, we find that an insanely high number of break-open tickets are sold in NL every year. Are the public piano’s annoying? MUN’s got a complaint recently. We talk about the culture of having a beer or three after sports games and driving home after. After the recent robbery of a guy on a “date” with someone he met online, we delve into some bad websites and look at fake hookers and local scammers being outed. This turns to the messed of topic of selling worn underwear for a fetish, and Joel accidentally orders a pair. Even on an uncensored podcast the boys find some things that shouldn’t be said! It takes a turn for the worst after googling if there are male underwear available, so the podcast is shut down for another week.

Labour day weekend special! “Travis” is our guest this week. Joel is wearing a hat that the boys don’t like. We share some fun stories of shoe shopping and some downtown stuff that’s happened during the last 4 nights in a row of Joel getting on the beer. There is a lot of swearing in this show, mainly from Joel who really got into the beer. We have a great discussion about downtown food options, including the hot dog carts. Huge disappointment this weekend with the Selena Gomez show not going ahead. That’s sad. We try to get some phone calls but it gets broken and it’s not going well. We finally chat to our friend Andrew who kind of helps set up the phone. Nick makes fun of the shirt Joel is wearing (again) .. Andrew says it’s a sausage party and we need some females. Well, that’s a good point. Joel has way too many beers to do much else, we chat about guns briefly, and then the dude who went on a date and got robbed. People do silly things for love! It’s time to wrap it up so the boys call it quits and see you next time.
Joel & Nick are joined by Brandon for the first ever three-person podcast. Brandon works in the restaurant biz and is an aspiring model/actor. We talk lots about bars, women, drinks & party stories. Joel is upset that he drank alone at a bar and the bartenders didn’t talk to him. Joel doesn’t know how pockets work. Brandon swipes on Tinder live on the show and asks a girl to listen to the podcast. We anxiously await her response and Brandon spends sometime selling himself incase she is listening. Do you send nudes? Nick is paranoid about spy cameras in hotel/airbnb rooms.. Remember the old days of watching & downloading porn? But not as old as magazines.. We come up with a new way to promote the show, then Brandon takes over and ends the episode.

The boys have some Facebook live broadcast thing going for the first time so the show was live on Facebook, waiting for your calls/comments/tweets on whatever we talked about. Joel is on a bender recently, spending lots of time downtown, even delving into watching some Olympics & UFC. How do you deal with bathroom habits when living with someone else? Which bar was raided by the RNC & NLC? We’re not sure yet either.. Joel & Nick talk about some bars that serve drinks after closing time. MUN can’t fill its older shared residences. The guys hear from some people who have lived in them previously, who don’t think that the privacy is an issue. Also, how do you get greasy in a shared residence?? Joel reflects on his lacklustre college party experience. Joel reveals a big driving mistake. We take a quick bathroom break and Joel is so full of beer he’s late coming back. Nick gives advice on how to handle bums asking for money. Some creeps on the go lately – one guy waving his bird around downtown, and others spying on runners in Paradise. Alcohol with less alcohol? NO THANKS! We don’t want to end on a bad note so Joel tells a story of someone who has never pumped gas, and then we talk about taxi’s & Uber. We sign off before getting negative again!
We’re back! Nick returns from Japan and the North of Newfoundland Podcast is back on its weekly schedule. The boys talk about all the latest happenings like George Street Fest, ticket prices & learning how to use the new roundabout. Why don’t we wear life jackets?? What was the mystery item that shut down security at the airport? Joel joined a neighbourhood Facebook group and was surprised by what he saw. Talk of drones & jail drugs round out the show.

Joel & Nick talk about beer (surprise), the shame in ordering water at a bar, and Joel shares an odd secret that Nick thinks is gross. Quick chat about Harrison Ford & the Ice Caps. Moving onto an anonymous critical letter about George Street being a “ghost town” and bars shutting down. We try to understand a local Tinder video about d**k pics and why it’s full of lies. Thieves keep dangerously breaking into electricity substations stealing copper, maybe Newfoundland Power needs to get more serious to tackle the issue! Joel has some interesting ideas.. Why aren’t younger people playing lottery tickets? Joel & Nick agree, don’t drive on the highways. Joel can’t figure out why Nick gets cheaper haircuts from the same place. Finally, Nick does not share Joel’s source of motivation for hitting the gym. The show ends as Joel’s beer is beyond empty.
