It’s cold as hell outside, but that’s nothing new. Nick tells us what May 24th weekend in the cold was like, and we hope for better weather on Canada Day when there will be some Canadian bands playing on George Street. Some hunters are saying there aren’t enough moose, which is odd since we’re used to hearing that there are far too many. Randy Simms is retiring so there will be a new mayor of Mt. Pearl, although we’re not sure who will run. The Halifax Chronicle used the word “Newfie” in a headline, and some people got mad. Newfie’s will have to start dialing 10-digits next year because we’re getting another area code. A dead whale is drawing lots of attention and spectators, although we think it’s a bit strange. Somebody has placed a cross by it. DFO is scrapping their plan for recreational fishing tags, and we wonder if there is some sketchy business going on with fish sales. A strange guy pretending to be a cop pulled some people over, and a creepy guy exposed himself to a dance studio. He had previous offenses and Joel thinks these people need to be removed from society. Students had to run away from one of our crappy school buses which caught fire, St. John’s says people are flushing the wrong things, and Joel tells a gross story about cleaning a drain. We finish the show talking about Bitcoins and how you can help the show.
We do a live “storm” podcast and hope the power doesn’t go out, since it’s been so cold we had a warning that the province could be in the dark again. Joel wonders about people who can’t dance, and then sings songs from a guy who is returning to town to play a concert. We talk about when Karl Wells used to be the weatherman, and appreciate his “no stars” restaurant review. Joel shares his idea for a new restaurant but Nick doesn’t think it will work. We quickly debate the word “Newfie” and then move onto some funny news stories from here and laugh at Vancouver fighting over free road salt. NL is getting a new area code and we’re too broke to buy liquor anymore. We look at the population of some Newfoundland towns, many are shrinking, some are growing. One of the shrinking towns will surprise you! We wonder how a picture from a community with no internet got posted to the internet. Nick forces Joel to skip a topic, and then we laugh at Peter Mansbridge saying the word “cuck.” See you next week!
