Oh, Yeaah! Let’s talk about Food Mascots!

This week join Tuong La and food nerds Leslie Cserepy, Desiree Warmington, and Geoff McBride as they finally decide which 5 characters sit the highest on the Food Mascot throne.

Yes and…we’ll do this episode for a second year in a row!

Welcome to the second year of a THREE in ONE Ranked episode where we put 15 improv groups on the spot from the Ottawa Improv Festival 2018 to weigh in on three questions that only improvisors can answer! Join Tuong La and co-host wannabes Angus MacDonald, Leslie Cserepy while we make a Top 5 and RANK other people’s answers! Also we get a surprise visit from an old “friend” of the show from Marvel’s hit Netflix show Daredevil…

“Travel does the heart good”

Whether you have been working long hours, cramming for finals, hell – even if life is just hitting you in the face, we all deserve a break once and awhile. And what better way to take a break from life then to tap into your wanderlust and go see some of the many amazing places our tiny planet has to offer. So join Tuong La and fellow gallivanters Keegan On, Sarah Ghadbane, and Vanessa Behncke as we rank the best places to travel on vacation!

Can you believe this year will be the 90th Academy Awards show? NINETY! Over most of this time, The Awards have been a pretty boring celebration between (generally) rich, white, powerful people giving themselves a pat on the back and snubbing more deserving individuals/films. However, this year in particular we saw the entire landscape of Hollywood shift from more representation, to calling out shitty people in the industry, to an influx of some really great Indie movies. Suffice to say things are looking to be changing and it’s never been a better time to be a movie fan! Join Tuong La and Movie Bingers Leslie Cserepy, Taylor Fleming, and Sarah Finn as we celebrate and rank our favorite movies of 2017.

Lovable. Relatable. Dysfunctional. They are just like us!

TV families come in all shapes and sizes but we love them all the same for making us laugh and cry on the small screen at home. They make us forget about our own lives (and to be honest – take a break from our own families) and bring us to a world of pure entertainment. While there are many great families on television, there are some that blow the rest out of the water! Join Tuong La and his PodCavern Family Taylor Fleming, Axandre Lemours, and Reba Ollerhead as we rank the very best TV families.

We choo-choo choose you to be our Valentine!

It’s February and the time for cheesy, romantic, gushy, over-the-top gestures of love is in the air! Whether you are in a relationship, single, hate/love Valentines, or just like going on dates we got something for you! Join Tuong La and Rambunctious Romantics Catherine Ballachey, Kristine Shadid, and Alyssa Wooldridge as we discuss the best date ideas for Valentines (or any other day really).

Some of the best TV theme songs and intros have the power to take you back greatest moments in TV. They get stuck in our heads so we hum out the songs and forever remember fondly these shows years after the series finished. While there are so many amazing TV theme songs out there, there are some stand outs that rise above the rest! Join Tuong La as he assembles the A-Team of ‘co-host wannabes’ Leslie Cserepy, Angus MacDonald, and Samantha Leggatt as they do the impossible and rank what the best TV theme songs are.

We survived 2017!

Happy new year PodCavern friends! Last year was quite the ride (to say the least) of wild ups and downs. Somewhere in all that chaos, video games decided to have one of the best year of releases and we’re here today to celebrate that! Join Tuong La and gaming nerds Ethan Howieson, Tyler Furness, and Kevin Wiler as we deliberate on the best video games that came out in 2017.

Merry Christmas you filthy animals!

On part 2 of our holiday themed episodes, we grab a nice cup of cocoa and put on our ugliest sweaters to decide once and for all what the best things to watch on Christmas are. Join Tuong “Gruber” La, Kristine “The Elf Dentist” Shadid, Chelsea “The Red Nosed” Fahey, and Taylor “The Abominable Snowmonster” Fleming as we ride our magical Christmas sleigh into the last Top 5 episode of 2017!
