Nick continues his vacation, so Travis & Susan attempt to pick up the slack this episode. We run through the past week’s news including George Street Festival, a busker starting a fire, and the giant cell phone outage. Cathy Bennett resigned, a guy is being charged in Nova Scotia for defending himself after a home invasion, and Joel wonders if loud motorcycle pipes really have any purpose as the riders say. Someone else yelled FHRITP, and CBC messed up by posting a minor’s photo. St. John’s is supposedly the 5th most bedbug infested city in Canada, the Iceberg Alley concert is returning, and we wrap up talking about how good Travis is at finding deals.
Nick is on vacation so Travis fills in. Travis tells us how the cops stopped him while walking home drunk, then we talk about George Street Festival, tribute bands, and the concert scene in Newfoundland. Joel explains why he’s done with Chase The Ace, a resident is mad because there’s too much traffic going to Signal Hill, and we talk about the use of ATVs and dirt bikes in Bay Roberts and around the bay. We talk about why we don’t need to “change the culture” to ensure gender balance in every workplace, non-binary birth certificates and transphobia, and fighting political correctness. For the rest of the show, Joel identifies as a woman, then we check out a missing turkey story, and Travis reports seeing a chicken on Waterford Bridge Road.
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.
