Dan and The Lads head to the best Ethiopian restaurant in the Waterloo region, Muya Restaurant. A favourite of local food critic Andrew Coppolino, the boys give their thoughts on the spectacularly good Muya Ultimate Combo they enjoyed, as well as the outstanding Ethiopian coffee tradition that they were fortunate to enjoy with owner Wendessen Weldegiorgis.
With all of the recent uproar over Gillette’s recent online commercial entitled ‘The best men can be’, the boys sit down for an open chat about what that means, why people freak out over the idea of toxic masculinity, and how, quite frankly, the world would be better off if women ran the show. They also touch on the false narrative being espoused by some (ahem… Trump) that it’s a ‘scary and difficult time for young men’.
Steve and the lads give the rundown on this annual Scottish celebration. Fellow Scot, Rob Laurie, shares his knowledge and experience surrounding the Bard of Ayrshire and the world of scotch. We’re talking haggis, bagpipes and scotch on this episode, while also butchering Burns’ Address to Haggis. A beauty episode!
Inspired by Season 3’s opener of Netflix’s Black Mirror, Ryan talks with the lads about the Orwellian reality exhibited in the ‘Nosedive’ episode, and how eerily similar China’s impending Social Credit Scoring system will be. The lads also ask the question that, with all the social media and Uber like ranking systems out there, are we already living in a Black Mirror world? Are we the frog in the pot of water?
For the final episode of 2018, Dan and the lads discuss the recent resignation of Kevin Hart from being the host of the 2019 Oscars due to some old tweets. He had already addressed and apologized for these tweets years ago, so why should he be made to apologize again? Simply put, when is enough enough for someone to be forgiven of their past?
With the trailer for Avengers Endgame finally going public, Ryan leads the lads through a talk about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Recapping the ‘Snappening’ from Infinity War, the lads discuss the highly anticipated introduction of Captain Marvel, and the upcoming finale of Marvel’s Phase 3. Also, check out some great insights into the new Avengers trailer from the New Rockstars.
