Episode 197: All Your Cars are Belong to Us

On this fortnight’s SlightlySauced, the guys and Aine talk about risky car loans. New technology is allowing lenders that back car sales to borrowers with bad credit to install a device on the car that can prevent it from being started if the borrower is behind on loan payments. The lenders claim that the devices increase repayment rates, decrease danger and liability, and allow them to run more efficient businesses, but some lenders say that the devices are an invasion of privacy, an embarrassment, and a safety hazard. Is this an ethical way of doing business? Should these devices be regulated? Grab a beer and find out.

Episode 196: Nerding Out

On this episode of SlightlySauced, Kayla isn’t around so Jake, Jon and Tyler nerd out over video games. Dharmesh has written us a great big long email with all of his thoughts about Episode 194. The email sets the guys off talking about what makes a great game story, the history of consoles and piracy, and the cultural differences between gaming fans in Asia and North America.

Episode 195: A Month Worth of Email

This fortnight on SlightlySauced, we’re catching up on all of the email that has accumulated since the last time that we recorded an episode. Luckily, our fans are great, and give us plenty of material to work with. Ernie got us talking about what it means to be a Canadian citizen and the ALS Icebucket Challenge. Alex (the one from Maine, not the one on tonight’s show) left us a voicemail that tried to explain what an Atlantic North East accent is like, and offered to send us some trick beers. Chris reminded us that the zombie apocalypse is due to happen any day now and asked us what we would do to survive it, and then Ernie (again) got us looking into a documentary about pedophilia. It’s a great show, so grab a beer and give it a listen!

Episode 194: I Wanna Play Pokemon

In which our heroes discuss the current state of Nintendo and whether or not they would purchase Nintendo games if said games were released on phones and tablets. After all, who doesn’t get all weepy and nostalgic about Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon? That’s what Nintendo has been building their entire strategy around for years now!

Episode 193: Checking the Email

On this week’s episode, we try to play catchup for all of the weeks that we’ve missed. We catch up on listener email,  address being gone, the fact that Jon has never seen Rocky, what our future release schedule is going to look like, and Dave quitting the show. We answer email from a new listener whose friends are geographically challenged, talk about regional dialects, getting second-hand herpes, and aging rock bands. Ernie teaches us about mining for oil, we discuss swearing allegiance to the Queen, murdering people in public, The Canadian Charter of Freedoms, whether or not Canadians have a right to free speech, and our changed opinions about cyclists on the roads. Finally, Jon claims not to be a libertarian. All in all, it’s a good show, so grab a beer and get SlightlySauced with us.

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 191: Crazy McCrazy Sauce

On this week’s SlightlySauced, we investigate the claims of some crazy pamphlet that Jon picked up from a kooky guy outside of a concert on the weekend. This thing is all sorts of nuts, complete with bible verses, the illuminati, lots of capitals and bold text.

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. In this episode, we answer some listener email, talk about Anne Coulter being a racist, and watch Megyn Kelly school Dick Cheney. 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.
