Episode 192: From the Archives - From Australia with Love

We had a hard time getting everybody together to record a show this week, so you get to listen to a re-run instead! Hooray!

Original Show Notes:

On this week’s SlightlySauced, we’re joined by Australian listener Liam. He came to Canada on holiday and made a point of dropping by the studio for a few pints and some in-depth discussion on the subtle differences between our two ex-British colonies. The availability of beer, the price of coffee, how to pet a kangaroo, and the discerning use of curse words are all on the docket. So grab a fosters and get SlightlySauced with us.

Episode 190: Our Racist Facebook Page

SlightlySauced is back from vacation! We took two weeks off, but we’re back and ready to go with a fresh show for your listening pleasure.

We also celebrate Nunavut’s lack of roads and the Iqualuit Garbage Fire, CBC cutbacks, voice actors, and that damned potato salad Kickstarter campaign. Grab a beer and get sauced with us!

Episode 189: The Carrier Conglomerates

This week on SlightlySauced, we meant to dig into an article about frozen pigs, but instead got to bitching about cellphone companies in response to an email from Dharmesh. From roaming in the states to the prices you pay at home, the domestic oligopoly has got you beat down. It’s the first world problem that every Canadian likes to bitch about, and we’re no exception.

Episode 188: Helicopter Escape Plan

Sorry for the late posting!

This week on SlightlySauced, we’re talking about daredevils. The men who were brave enough, desperate enough, and stupid enough to try to escape from prisons via helicopter. You’ve probably heard of the two cases from Quebec in the past year, but have you heard of the five other cases that made headlines around the world? Along the way, we look into the Hells Angels, the difference between prison and jail, and more! It’s a great episode, so grab a beer, have a seat, and get SlightlySauced with us.

All of that and much more on this week’s SlightlySauced.
