In perhaps their most callous episode of Hot Topics yet, Keith and Elaine deal with all of the bad news of the world, from tornadoes to typhoons to shootings to kids with cancer to Rob Ford, by resorting to humor. We swear though that we are good people, and this is simply how we’re coping with the “new normal,” which is pretty terrible. At least we have Jean-Claude van Damme’s superhuman level of flexibility to distract us!
Also, find out what Keith and Elaine are “no-thankful” for in our special segment “Happy NO-Thanks-giving!”
I agree with this quote, but I also agree with this comment: “Ironically, I think this self-flagellation for having two to three drinks around dinner is just another aspect of that perfectionism.”
So what are we going to do?…Perhaps opt out of perfectionism? Easier said than done, I know. But it’s a start. I’m not sure how much good overworked, white collar, meritocratic, yuppiedom does anyone.

America Won’t Shut Up About Toronto!
From the CN Tower to the NBA’s Raptors, this week, Americans everywhere are falling in love with easily one of the top three Canadian cities, Toronto!
On the Show:
- We talk to a Toronto denier, and founding member of the activist group TiT (Toronto Isn’t True), Larry Byurd. (John Haskell)
- We sit down with real-life Torontonian, Margeax Shoehorse. (Elaine Meyer)
- We’re paid a visit from our good friend and Travel Writer for here2there.biz, Willard Zilch.
All that and more, plus music from the Foo Fighters.
I joined the crew at the America Won’t Shut Up podcast with my good friend John Haskell for an hour of good, old-fashioned Torontonian fun!
Watching Sea Lions at San Francisco Bay
Nothing makes me love traveling across America more than standing passively among other Americans (and some foreigners) and commenting on things, especially when those things are animals, and especially when they’re sea lions and we’re in San Francisco.
This video is from a road trip I took last summer with my best friend from school up the California coast. Needless to say, we saw a lot of sea lions on the way.
