It’s our provincial budget day podcast. We saw the local news doing “live and local” coverage and decided we should do “live and loaded.” Nick said that if we’re advertising loaded, we need to deliver on our promise, and forces Joel to drink a lot. We go over the boring budget and discuss how we’re all being screwed. Marble Mountain is at the center of some controversy about whether or not it should remain open longer this season, and we try to figure out what the hell is going on. The show wouldn’t be complete without talk about weather or Gander, so we get two birds stoned at once and look at the record-setting snowfall out there. Before moving on from winter topics, we talk about polar bear sightings, debate if it’s dangerous to be hopping on ice pans, and go over the false alarm missing person this week. Getting into the good stuff, we laugh at city councilor Jonathan Galgay who is facing backlash for suggesting the next RNC Chief needs to be a female. This turns into a short-lived discussion on feminism and why most women want nothing to do with that word anymore. We also show off our embarrassing lack of politics knowledge. We talk about what the senior’s discount age should be. Joel thinks it should start going higher. We share our love for Debbie Cooper of CBC news, how deserving she is of an award, and Joel tells about how starstruck he was when he saw her once. Joel wonders why the CBC posts so many articles about immigrants. We look at a creepy hidden camera story and wonder whether the guy is a creep or not. We have a mechanical bull downtown again so we talk about that, then realize how drunk Joel is and how long we’ve been on, so we leave.
