“What do these trillions of dollars even matter if we’re all gonna die?”

This week join Tuong and comet conspirator (not actually) Reba Ollerhead as they talk about discovering the joys of cross-stiching, how to spend your last 6 months on Earth, and a star-studded, meta-commentary, film that has a giant rock hurdling towards the planet – Don’t Look Up (2021).

Featuring Maddox Campbell (Break A Wish, Caverns & Comedians), Tuong La (Podcavern), and Alex Nursall (Parkdale Haunt). The panel discusses what constitutes a “medium” level of gratuity, learns how to make a planet climax, and guesses the flavour of Prince Eric’s dick.

Beep boop beep! Some of the most memorable characters in fiction are machines. The way they move, talk, perform functions that are simultaneously grand and wondrous has always been an appeal about them. On the other hand, almost everything is run by a computer chip these days and engineers are doing their best to replicate what we liked about robots in fiction and bring it into the real world (to often terrifying results). The thing that is missing from real life robots is the charm, wonder, and several degrees of separation from our reality that come with fictional machines! So join Tuong and Constant Struggle Podcast/Improv Niagara’s Brie Watson, Nick Watson, and Aaron Boyd as they compute themselves a Top 5 Fictional Robots list!

This week join Tuong and “The One” Axandre Lemours as they talk about watching a new movie a day in 2022, how the new Fresh Prince of Bel-Air show might not look so fresh, the art of reviewing movies on Letterboxd, and a new sequel to one of the most beloved franchises that made us question reality – The Matrix Resurrections (2021)!

Where would we be in the pandemic without video games?

It is not hyperbole to say that, for many, video games has been a beacon of joy and much needed escapism from the reality of this pandemic. It continues to be one of the more enjoyable ways to connect with family/friends digitally, in a world where lockdowns are frequent and Zoom fatigue is real. While the planet continues to be a big ol’ dumpster fire, video games provided that comfort we needed to push through to the next day. And yes, the effects of the pandemic did hit game development pretty bad resulting in multiple delays but somehow, through it all, we were still able to get some quality titles this year. So join Tuong and #GamerBoyz Angus MacDonald, Matthew Whalley, and Ethan Howieson as they celebrate another fantastic year in gaming by ranking Top 5 Video Games of 2021!
