At least we had video games in 2020.

It is not breaking any new ground to say 2020 was a dumpster fire. In that raging dumpster fire though, there was a small little ray of hope and escapism in the name of …video games! It is not hyperbole to say that video games provided that much needed comfort in these dark times to the entire world. And while 2020 brought out the worst in gamers (we’re looking at you The Last of Us 2/Cyberpunk entitled knuckleheads), it also brought out some real fantastic game experiences that we were able to get completely immersed in. It gave us a way to connect with family/friends digitally, in a world where we couldn’t physically see each other. So join Tuong La and ‘Sus Gamers’ Angus MacDonald, Ethan Howieson, and Matthew Whalley as they celebrate the best games of 2020!

“Yippee ki-yay, motherfucker!

It’s still Christmas in the PodCavern this week because we, of course, couldn’t do a holiday movie month of Talkin’ Tuong without talking about the most debated “Is this a Christmas Movie” of all time. That’s right! Join Tuong La and DIE HARD fan of Die Hard, Desiree Connors Warmington, as they talk about the early action hero days of Bruce Willis, why this movie is so dang popular over the holidays, and how good Alan Rickman’s American accent is as they watch this 1988 classic to close off 2020!

Twas The Night Before Christmas, all through the PodCavern.

Not a creature was stirring not even a….wow we really screwed ourselves there.

It’s a special CHRISTMAS EDITION of the Improv Punch Up! Live from the North Pole, Leslie, Angus and Tuong gift your ears with a hot new take on a classic Christmas tale; A Christmas Carol! Tune in to hear the Tale of Ebeneezer , a crotchety old man with no heart, as he is visited by four….’Fantastic’….ghosts! This epic roller coaster has everything: A Christmas Past that goes to beginning of life itself, A Christmas Present spawned from a privilege competition, and A Christmas Future 57 years from now that, lets just say, has a few bugs that should have been tested! And there’s a whooooole lotta cum jokes (because it’s Christmas after all). Grab your nightgown, your stub of candle….you there! What day is it!?!? Punch Up Day!

Sleeping Beauty: Was she really a beauty? And was she really asleep? Well, the Dummies won’t be answering those questions this week, but they WILL be covering the drama, romance, and single deeply comedic moment of this classic Disney princess film.

“It’s Turbo Time!”

The week of Christmas has finally arrived so what better way to get into the holiday spirit then to watch Arnold Schwarzenegger’s most iconic movie role of all time (we said what we said!). So join Turbo Man’s trusty side kicks Tuong La and Chelsea Fahey as they frantically try to get their Christmas shopping done while watching 1996’s Jingle All The Way.

Featuring Glenys Marshall (Edinburgh Fringe Festival), Erin Pim (The Bed Post Podcast), and Christopher Seeney (Cookie Biscuits, Jack Computer). On the holiday special – and the last episode of 2020 before a seasonal break – the panel discusses which is the sexiest Christmas carol, how many boners Wolverine would have hidden in his hands, and the worst thing to hear in Rudolph’s voice.

Celebrating 100 episodes of Ranked!
Almost 4 years ago there was an idea. An idea of Tuong uniting three other guests to bicker, banter, and passionately put together arbitrary Top 5 lists of anything and everything. Over the last few years we have ranked everything from Sandwich Toppings, to TV Theme Songs, to a variety of Fictional Animals. But for the 100th episode, we knew we had to go above and beyond to make a list that TRULY does not matter that also honours the legacy of all Ranked episodes (so far).

So join us as Tuong La and the A-Team Angus MacDonald, Samantha Leggatt, and Leslie Cserepy look back on all of the winners of each Top 5 list we have ever done, pit them together in a battle royale of which #1 was the best, and record a marathon episode where we rank and order ONE HUNDRED EPISODES in Ranked’s 100th Episode Spectacular!

Featuring Leslie Cserepy (The Improv Punch Up), Brian Edwards (MCU Improvised, Pinky & The Brian), and Grace Smith (I’m Not Mad At You, Things With Cats). The panel competes for the best buzzer noise, and…
