The news was a bit slow this week so luckily Joel went to the strip club and hookah lounge so he tells us about it. Brandon is our guest. We talk about how the AHL is done here again as the Ice Caps played their last game in St. John’s, and wonder what will happen at Mile One and downtown now. Prince Phillip is retiring and we don’t really care but Brandon tries to give a history lesson. Newfoundland is going to try nighttime paving so we’ll see how that goes. A boat tossed a bunch of trash into Lewisporte Harbour, and some nice fellas tried to clean it up. A 16-year-old driver caused an accident after a police chase and we find out that he already had a suspended license. Old people always win the lotto but Joel thinks it’s a waste by then. The heritage crowd is sad because Richmond Cottage is most likely going to be bulldozed, but Joel thinks this is how the free market should work. We check out a funny video of a woman stealing liquor in Bishop’s Falls, then talk about CONA or CNA or whatever you want to call it. A new review found bad things, but Nick thinks things are blown out of proportion. We talk about some North of NL summer plans and call it a night.
There’s a big-ass storm outside, so Nick joins us through video chat. He wasn’t prepared for the storm so he’s drinking a strange mix of whatever alcohol could be found in the house. We chat about the snow, Valentine’s Facebook posts, how the day was ruined, and Joel tells a funny Valentine’s story from back when he was still romantic. We discuss “live music” and wonder what the appeal of a dude with an acoustic guitar is. Nick talks about drunk axe-throwing, and then Joel asks what is with people who leave their curtains wide open at night for people to see in. The new fog landing system at YYT is living up to its promises, somebody flipped their car on the roof in a parking lot, and we wonder if St. John’s will finally get traffic planning right when it comes to Dannyland. Joel gives an update on jury duty, and Nick tells about some people who have asked how Joel is doing these days and we think people don’t believe that I am doing fine. Joel addresses another local group talking incorrectly about the wage gap, then we talk about 4 day work weeks and difficulty napping. We discuss the snow-clearing plan for once the storm ends and predict if the storm will close things again on Wednesday. Which is all outdated info by the time you hear it!
We start the show with an update on the situation that arose last week and why Jill never heard from the guy who sent her a drink. Mardi Gras was extremely rainy, Charizard won the best costume and $5000 prize. We chat about costumes, drinking downtown, and what’s with people who get drunk and try to start fights? Why can’t we just drink and have a good time? Some stories come up, including Nick being confronted on a date by a jealous ex-boyfriend. Audiences at Ice Caps games are dwindling as they wind down their time here, and we quickly chat about a secret way Nick would get free tickets. Chat about the province’s budget, job cuts, and students wanting free tuition. More school buses taken off the road for not being safe. We take a look at the ‘Come From Away’ musical about 9/11. It’s important to many people, but we can’t get past the fact that it’s a musical. Joel tries to chat about the U.S. election before ending but Nick isn’t having it.
Contains explicit content.
Joel & Nick talk about beer (surprise), the shame in ordering water at a bar, and Joel shares an odd secret that Nick thinks is gross. Quick chat about Harrison Ford & the Ice Caps. Moving onto an anonymous critical letter about George Street being a “ghost town” and bars shutting down. We try to understand a local Tinder video about d**k pics and why it’s full of lies. Thieves keep dangerously breaking into electricity substations stealing copper, maybe Newfoundland Power needs to get more serious to tackle the issue! Joel has some interesting ideas.. Why aren’t younger people playing lottery tickets? Joel & Nick agree, don’t drive on the highways. Joel can’t figure out why Nick gets cheaper haircuts from the same place. Finally, Nick does not share Joel’s source of motivation for hitting the gym. The show ends as Joel’s beer is beyond empty.
