If you’ve ever questioned Disney’s commitment to sci-fi, check out Atlantis: The Lost Empire, which features AN ENTIRE LANGUAGE created for the fictional (???) Atlanteans. Venture underwater with the Dummies as we navigate some fancy ocean plumbing on a hunt for the fabled ancient society, led by charismatic linguist/cartographer Milo and a motley crew of experts who are ready to take on any obstacle – including, perhaps, the darkness within their own hearts. OooooOOOOo!!
“When you’re a Jet, you’re a Jet all the way!”
In the very first show of the post 100th episode world of Talkin’ Tuong, Tuong is joined by Laura Gordon and Leslie Cserepy to talk about the biggest cinematic (musical) movie of the year (probably) – West Side Story!
Featuring Antony Hall (CBC’s Ming’s Dynasty, Book It Vince!), Simon McCamus (The Second City, Fake Cops), and Brie Watson (The Second City, Improv Niagara). It’s our Christmas Special! This week the panel discusses whether Eyes Wide Shut is a Christmas movie, gets treated to a startlingly clever rundown of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s filmography, and learns about the true meaning of Jizzmas from Ebenezer Splooge.
The lights around the tree are not the only thing getting lit this Christmas!
Merry Christmas all you cotton headed ninny muggins because it’s time for our annual Ranked Christmas/Holiday Special! This time we wanted to end yet another weird year around the sun with a night we’ll never forget. That’s right! What better way to put a close to 2021 then to throw the biggest (fictional) party with all our favourite Christmas characters! So join Tuong and Ef Interns Justin Otto & Cassie Pyatt (Love Is…), and Amanda Pereira (The Liquid Courage Podcast) as they throw the biggest holiday rager while ranking Top 5 Festive Characters You’d Want to Party with on Christmas.
With Sal still reeling from the news of his upcoming Tribunal review he hastily gets a guest for the show. Angus, wanting to help his friend relax, agrees to sit down with the Robot Hero Vigilant-E (Rich Hillborn). Together the guys learn a little bit about what it is to be human.
There’s no time like the end of the year to discover a new groove! The Emperor’s New Groove is Disney animated slapstick at its best, and the Dummies are following along on a truly wacky mission to save Pacha’s home from the selfish King/llama Kuzco, and stop the evil Yzma and her right-hand himbo, Kronk, from doing MURDER (gasp!!). Groove along with us, if you dare!
People around the world drink a LOT of coffee and all those grounds go somewhere, often into our garbage dumps. What if we could use it for something other than compost? Our guest Alivia Mukherjee is studying a way to sequester carbon dioxide using coffee grounds to help mitigate climate change. Vinny and Katie talk about Spirit Bears and drilling holes on Mars.
We made it to 100!

Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming!
Humans have discovered some pretty amazing creatures in history but some of the most amazing ones come from those vast and varying bodies of water that span our Earth. While there are over 30,000 species of fish known to us, we have only scratched the surface of what’s out there in the darker depths of that great big blue. So forget aliens! There’s a whole bunch of interesting and weird fish species that inhabit the Earth that also feel out of this world! So join Tuong and Fishy Freaks Simone Dorie, Braeden Etienne, and Hayley Kellett as they plunder the ocean and swim their way to ranking a Top 5 Fish list!
