Another podcast and another week closer to the end of Joel’s “No Drink January.” Joel came home to find Nick drinking a beer outside on the step, making things even more difficult. We quickly run through some half-interesting news bits, then get into a discussion about reports of people breaking into cars. Snow-clearing is the next topic as the city asks how they can improve, then we move on to the story of a woman who fell on stairs and is now considering the homeowners. We wonder if there’s something more to this situation. The RNC have a perfect video of a dumb driver being pulled over in Corner Brook. We watch it and then try to quickly move on since talking about bad drivers is boring, however, the next story is about bad parking which isn’t much better. A mother who can’t park is upset that she got a note calling her out, but not many people sympathized with her! Next, we delve into the “missed connections” classifieds list and have a good laugh. Have these ever actually worked for anybody? Anyways, it’s hilarious so we talk about them until the end of the show.
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.
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.
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.
