It’s our first show of 2017 and there’s lots to talk about. The annual “ban fireworks” petitions are out, and Joel isn’t drinking for January. We talk about New Years Eve celebrations, how drunk Nick got, and how chill concert security is here in NL. Nick talks about how the first day back to school sucks and is annoyed that we can still only get $20 bills from bank machines. Days after Joel saw a suspicious business, turns out it was selling drugs and police shut it down. We check out a heartwarming story of some local kids building a huge snowman, but it didn’t last long. We go over some of the new fees and tax increases that came into effect for 2017 and look at a bookstore owner that only earns $6000 a year. We check out some local serious music videos by a funny guy trying to not be funny anymore and think he should go back to doing funny stuff. There’s a news story about Adam Sandler being in St. John’s and we can’t figure out if it’s real. This leads to a talk about how everything on the internet is an ad or fake. That’s enough for this week so seeya next time!
We are really drunk for this week’s drunk news but still manage to deliver this week’s top stories like businesses shutting down, no New Years Eve fireworks for St. John’s and some fees are going up.
It’s a busy show with lots to cover! A prominent store in St. John’s is shutting down, we talk about the different New Years Eve celebrations in St. John’s this year – no NYE fireworks! We look at the crazy dangerous driving video that everybody has been watching. Taxi’s are sketchy, and sometimes you pass out on the way home. NL is poor AF now so no surprise food drive donations are dismal this year. Surprise, NL has been left off another map of Canada. An MP says “fart” in the house of commons and Elizabeth May is pissed. We watch this video but take a break in the middle to talk to interesting caller “John” who is trying to time travel. Nick hangs up on him then we finish the fart video and shut ‘er down.
