Merry Chris-list to All!

Inspired by last year’s Top 5 Ryans episode, the gang at Ranked decided to finally tackle the hottest question the universe has been asking: “Who is the Best Chris?”. Now the fine folks of the PodCavern did not want to provide you with your typical internet Chris List (because BORING), so we put on a fun twist that cracks open the “Doorway of Chrises” that is sure to stir the pot. This week join Tuong La and Chris-tal Clear Rankers Kristine Shadid, Victoria Luloff, and Marc Quintaneiro as they go off the rails and rank a not-so-typical Top 5 Chrises List!

Ground Rules

  • If they have the word “Chris” in the name it counts as a nomination (ie Christina, Chrissy, etc.)
  • If  “Chris” is phonetically in the name it counts as a nomination  (ie Kristopher, etc.)
  • First name, last name, middle name Chrises count
  • If they identify as a “Chris” it counts as a nomination (if their original name was something else but they are now called Chris)
  • Fictional Chrises also count

Oh the good ol’ Ranking Game!

Sorry, it’s that time of the year again where the folks at Ranked break out their toques and sip their Timmies on their chesterfields as they discuss some more great things about Canada! Canada is the land of many things. It’s the land of overly polite people, beautiful scenery, but also the land some of the best god damn music on the planet! This year join Tuong La and Moose Riding Mounties Keish Saunders, Shannon Godelie, and Laura Gordon as they talk aboot and celebrate the Top 5 Songs from Canadian Artists!

Ground Rules

  • Songs are from Canadian Artists (duh!)
  • How “Canadian” a song is can factor in as a tie breaker, but we are ranking them purely on enjoyment for the most part (episode is not MOST Canadian song)
  • Doesn’t matter when the song came out
  • Can nominate from different genres
  • size of the hit can also be a factor (ie winning awards) but it’s up to the table if they enjoy it
  • Try to get a variety of songs from different genres

Playlist

We compiled a nifty playlist of all the songs that we nominated and in our honourable mentions for your listening pleasure! Check it out and enjoy!

SAD NEWS.

In a PodCavern first, there will be no live-stream episode of Talkin’ Tuong this month. Don’t worry we’ll all be okay, there there. *group hug* BUT FEAR NOT! Tuong still felt compelled to record an offline episode as the show must go on! Listen as he gives a quick and dirty round up of June of what he would have talked about including life stuff, E3 2019, Dark Phoenix, MIB: International,  and Toy Story 4! We’ll be back next month with a new LIVE episode!

On this episode we have not one guest but TWO! Improvising with us is the Wondrous Woody McCadden (Blackbox Comedy) and, in a Punch Up first, all clips were curated by the Learned Lee Demarbre (Mayfair Theatre). Join us as a lowly servant on a Bulgarian party yacht stands up for himself with Pinocchio-like consequences, we find out how the Bulgarian police academy dean’s office gets it’s lovely furniture, and after 40 years of service, the world’s most professional Bulgarian flight attendant has a crisis of faith.
