We get off to the usual rocky start, then dive into a busy show! Newfoundlanders love to talk about the weather, so we talk about recent snowfall, the risk of a big storm coming soon, grocery store panic when there’s snow forecast, a new documentary about sidewalk snow-clearing, Joel tells a story from his broadcasting days during Dark NL, and shares a new winter activity he invented. A pizza delivery man came to Joel’s place incorrectly, but we talk about keeping the pizza. We try to move off the snow topic but end up talking about a dude who stole a snowmobile, crashed it, and had to be rescued after spending a night in the woods. A restaurant in Gander was robbed but we thought they went overboard on the violence. There’s a local version of the Women’s March scheduled for Saturday and we explain why the cause is unfounded, while celebrating Trump becoming president this week. On to more bad news, we look at a new winter tourism campaign from the NL government who seem to have forgotten that we’re all too broke to afford gas or ski. We wonder why immigrants don’t stick around in Atlantic Canada, and it’s not hard to figure out! After talking about George Street and Bologna, it seems we’ve covered all our bases. Joel talks about living around seniors and then we finish up with the dude who lit 3 buildings on fire in Milltown.
