Joel starts by telling about how he was thankful to be recognized by a podcast viewer, we have our weather chit-chat, and then talk about high-school graduations and why we didn’t go to ours. There were some peaceful anti-abortion protestors near a high school and Joel doesn’t understand why everybody cares so much. After talking about some feminist and free-speech stuff, we move on to a plastic bag ban, the Outer Ring cleanup, and wondering why people toss garbage around so much. Nick talks about speed bump silliness, then we talk about cars getting stolen and wonder why anybody would leave their keys in the car or house door unlocked. Torbay & Portugal Cove-St. Phillip’s hired some extra help since the RNC patrols were not enough, which we think is a decent idea. Moving on, we look at some Craigslist missed connections to attempt some matchmaking, Nick talks about Come From Away, and then we say goodbye for another week.
We start off talking about how messed up Joel was after the budget podcast last week. There was a budget BBQ and they had too many hot dog buns, foam cups, and ketchup for the number of people that showed up. We talk about the pros and cons of not owning a vehicle. Some fish people got really angry and we wonder if it’s justified or not. We side track and discuss not knowing your way around the city and the “east end” and then get back to talking about shrimp. St. John’s in the 60s looks a lot cleaner and nicer than now, although we have the same buses on the road. We talk about the oldie days and wonder what downtown was like back then. Moving on, the Belvedere Orphanage building burned down and we’re suspicious of the cause. Gander is in the news for the billionth week in a row so we look at that. Wildlife officers shot a polar bear and Joel was mad at first, but then changes sides, and we think of some creative ways on how they could have resolved the situation peacefully. Nobody knows how to use recycle bins, and we think of some ideas to help us improve. Somebody thought of a creative way to sneak drugs into jail, except it didn’t work. The Telegram was sold again and we talk about media in the future and explain why you should be listening to podcasts like ours. A landlord got screwed over big time, two dudes got into a scrap while hiking on Signal Hill, and somebody who isn’t a dude or a woman is not happy with our birth certificate gender options. We start a prize-less contest and talk about the long Easter weekend and what to eat on Good Friday.
We start with Joel’s final thoughts on the Snelgrove trial and the childish behaviour of protestors. Then, moving onto important issues, we get into the story about the colour of a kid’s bowling pants losing them gold and wonder how hard it is to get a pair of black pants. Government removed the word “culture” from a department name, but then added it back because some people were mad. Joel wonders why politicians talk so fake, and thinks they should all talk like Trump. A safe was ripped out of a building using a tractor, but there are many details missing from the story. We check out a high school taking cell phones during class and Nick doesn’t like it. There’s an oddly expensive method for tracking the caribou population in NL, and Joel thinks it is all a waste of money. We talk about the Brier which is in town this week, and then talk about how difficult axe throwing is. To wrap up the show we look at Glen Payette’s CBC sign-off and talk about some other local media personalities.
Jill returns as a special guest, and we spend the first part of the show breaking down the Douglas Snelgrove case and discussing all the things that come along with it, such as consent, the outrage over a Telegram headline, and Joel explains why he is predicting he will not be found guilty. We move on to some lighter topics like a parent giving their son’s Xbox away for failing exams. A building collapsed after the storm last week, a bar has had their liquor license suspended, and another bar has a secret code for if you’re uncomfortable. Newfoundland has the tiniest town in the country, and we wonder what life is like there. We debate whether the government job cuts are a good thing or not, and end talking about those dumb public pianos.
