History may have forgotten them, but we haven’t.

Thanks to the internet and some high school classes, there have been historical people and their accomplishments that have stood the test of time. However, most of the time there are amazing individuals who slip through the cracks and are forgotten forever….until now! This week join Tuong La and Wikipedia Wizards Sarah Finn, Catherine Ballachey, and Axandre Lemours who put their Googling skills to the test as they research and rank Top 5 Interesting People You’ve Never Heard About.

Ground Rules

  • No fictional people

  • They can be alive or dead
  • It’s people who the most part have never heard about
  • If they are sort of known it’s okay, they just have to be mostly unknown for the greater public
  • If a person nominated is known to the entire group, barring research for this podcast, then the table can reject the nomination and that person can nominate again

*Spoilers* Below is our Top 5 list from this episode as well as our own personal unordered  lists.

This week on The Improv Punch Up we have no guests so you know what that means…it’s time for a weird gimmick episode! This time the boys read a short story written by our very own Leslie Cserepy. In this version the boys tell the story of the brave Captain Thundercock and his crew as they land on Mars and are accosted by a strange and terrible creature. This story has more heart and shit than you’d expect!

It’s a classic episode where it’s just Tuong spitting off nonsense into a mic on this August’s Edition of Talkin’ Tuong! This month, Tuong gets Fast and Furious while talking about Hobbs & Shaw, gets geeky talking about ‘superheroes gone bad’ in The Boys, and laughs at children doing incredibly inappropriate things in Good Boys! Also things get raunchy in the PodCavern as the folks on the live chat want to Tuong to take off his shirt? Did he do it? Do people understand that this is mostly an audio medium? Listen and find out!

Tsck…pshh…fwshhhhhhhhh..fizzzzz

Hear that? That’s the satisfying sound you get when you pop open a fizzy drink of goodness that’s about to be chugged down. Over the years, there has been a plethora of flavoured, syrupy, sugary, carbonated/uncarbonated soft drinks that has hit the shelves – some great and some that make you question your life.  BUT as always there can be only five that reign supreme! Join Tuong La and Unhealthy Human Beings Angus MacDonald, Matt Barrow, and Leslie Cserepy as they bring drink samples to the table and make themselves nauseous as they rank Top 5 Soft Drinks!

Ground Rules

  • Must specify the brand AND the flavour
  • This is a samples episode. If you didn’t bring the sample then making your case will be exponentially harder

  • Definition for “soft drink” we are going for is as follows (credit to the Internet):  “Soft drink, any of a class of nonalcoholic beverages, usually but not necessarily carbonated, normally containing a natural or artificial sweetening agent, edible acids, natural or artificial flavours, and sometimes juice. Natural flavours are derived from fruits, nuts, berries, roots, herbs, and other plant sources. Coffee, tea, milk, cocoa, and undiluted fruit and vegetable juices are not considered soft drinks.”
  • If the drink is more “juice” than what the group is considered more of a “soft drink” than it does not count and that person has to renominate

*Cue opening title crawl*

Movie themes have become an integral part of the movie experience, even though they sometimes can be overshadowed by the film it’s representing.  When done right, the theme can be as iconic as the film itself turning a good movie into one that is remembered for all time. This week join Tuong La and the A-Team Samantha Leggatt, Angus MacDonald, and Leslie Cserepy as they try not to scream at each other while coming up with the best Top 5 Movie Theme Songs.

Ground Rules

  • Talking about the core musical theme of the movie not any song from the soundtrack

  • The whole soundtrack does not count

  • If you can argue a particular song in the movie is the theme, than it could count if you can deliberate why you think it is

  • Tie breaker can be how well the theme fits into the movie vs how well it stands on its own

  • Quality of the movie is not a factor

Every good crew needs a good leader. A leader who can make the hard call, bring a team together, and step up to the cause when needed.

This week join Tuong La and First Mates Sarah Ghadbane, Angus MacDonald, and Laura Gordon as they sail the seven seas to celebrate the Top 5 Best Captains!

Ground Rules

  • Can be fictional or real historical captains
  • If a character has not been referred to a captain but has that position, then they are a Captain
  • If a character is simply referred to as a captain then it counts
  • If they have the official rank and title of a captain then it counts
  • If they have “captain” in their name it counts
  • If they are in charge of a “crew” then they are most likely a captain
