37. gay marriage is acceptable feat. lucas loizou

this week on the pod we have the absolute pleasure of having friend of the pod and fan of pods in general: lucas loizou. we at wcb are thrilled to have booked this exclusive interview before this toronto comedy fav moves to berlin of all places!

lucas brought his notebook into the studio (jasmine's livingroom) and he's ready to discuss his communist book club.

we take the time to discuss what we like on twitter right now and jk rowling releasing additional harry potter lore via her tweets.

25. i love gay people! feat. jackson mason-mackay

in this episode, we'll circle back continues to enforce the unwritten rule of queer-only guests with jackson mason-mackay: new zealand cutie angel baby, and current roman resident.

aidan and jasmin both discuss how we each met jackson. jackson discusses the struggles of ordering with an accent.

we also play a game to see how well jackson knows his pop culture - and in a fun surprise twist, there are a few things aidan and jas get wrong

23. benevolent troll feat. adam smith pt. 2

aidan and jas had the absolute pleasure of continuing to talk for hours on end with sweet baby angel & internet expert: adam smith.

during the episode, we try our hand at true crime podcasting, by poorly retelling crime and murder stories we heard other places - mainly with far fewer details than the original telling of said crimes.

adam schools us on internet celebrity scandals and lets us know how we should go about growing our podcast audience. thanks dad!

17. hindsight is 50/50

the holidays are upon us! sure, you could take this time to call your mom and catch up. OR, you could listen to this beautifully remastered, straight from the disney vault, 40 minute podcast of pure joy.

great, you're still reading.

this week, we discuss the number one reason we would never be able to be optometrists. well, i guess we actually discuss the number two reason, since not being doctors is the official number one reason.

we also discuss the pressures of the holidays now that we've tip-toed our way into december. The final month of the trash fire known as 2017. We also talk about the newest sexual assaulter to be publicly accused and fired: none other than ann curry's arch-nemesis matt lauer.

as always, check out our social media, hit us up in the comments (with positivity plzzzz - we're very emotionally sensitive and CANNOT handle even the slightest criticism), hit the subscribe button and share us with a friend.

15. would you kill tobey maguire pt. 2

BOOM! that's the sound of my mom hitting the ground after being hit with last week's cliff hanger. she's fine though, she's a strong, independent woman, capable of doing all her own stunts and recovering from that not-so-major plot twist.

we dive back in this week with justin beiber's new tattoo. is it still called a sleeve when you cover your torso in fresh ink, but your torso is roughly the same size as the average arm? #scrawny

We also talk about how long it's been since we've gone to the movies. aidan explains toronto's premier drag queen, jada hhada hudson, and her provocative performance style. We also talk about the high stakes of halloween and jasmin tells the most amazing/sad/hilarious story about a special costume she wore trick or treating one year. enjoy!

13. the life changing magic of catfishing strangers online

hey cuties!

this week we had the distinct pleasure, honour and joy of recording the episode 3 times because aidan "butta fingaz" o'loughlin can't press record on the thingy hard enough. no hard feelings, but learn your friggen lesson already.

on a more related note: this episode has it ALL! hillary clinton, gay porn stars & catfishing - OH MY! honestly, it's a hoot.

11. from ke$ha to kesha!

after a hiatus that is 1000% too long, aidan and Jas are back to discuss the causes that really really REALLY matter.

first of all, we can't even pretend to not be into the triumphant return of kesha (now with 100% less dollar sign). it's a banger that re-inflated the kiddie pool we call summer and filled it to the brim with fun!

we also discuss automated sales people at our local pharmacy, and all the sights to be seen on our walk home. so sit back, turn the volume up and enjoy!!! (also, PLZ subscribe & like us anywhere you can find us including itunes, soundcloud, instagram and in real life of course!)

10. business woman's crop top

boom boom y'all - it's #pride month!

get out your rainbow gear & watch your step because this episode is filled with dope new outfits, cautionary tales about pride & meeting your queer heroes! if that sounds like your jam, you're in the right room. so throw on your favourite crop top, pop in your ear buds and ENJOY!!!!

9. i still can only wear extra-large men's hats

you guys! our track record keeps getting stronger - one week later, one new episode! just like professionals!

this week we warm up the show by discussing baby shawn. a 14 pound baby delivered in vancouver, bc - TWO WEEKS EARLY.

in firm juxtaposition of this miracle of life - we discuss the death of fox news ex-employee roger ailes. as always hilarity ensues while discussing that monster.

then we hop into kelly anne conway and her role in the once fiction novel but soon reality: handmaid's tale. also: elisabeth moss is a time-travelling margaret atwood come back to warn us all. pr.... maybe it's the other way around. just look at them!

SPOILER ALERT: we have some feelings about riverdale and we want to know what your feelings are. In riverdale adjacent news: dylan sprouse opened a meadery - in 2017!!!

7. the way-past-easter, easter episode

hi!

welcome back to another episode. i know you missed us, mom! this week we get together post easter family celebrations to catch up and kiki. the format is real loose (a departure from brand for us, we know) and the demands to continue listening, subscribing and rating us on itunes get so tight.

so pop in your headphones & enjoy!

minisode #2: sharon stone's birthday bash

this week we have a diet sized episode! a toite 25 minutes.

sure it's less and you feel robbed of time with us, but it's about QUALITY and certainly not about QUANTITY.

we jump in by being overwhelmed by the time change. f-you day light savings time. aidan discusses the joys and fears of young doctors and jas discusses coming out to her md.

then we somehow transition to sharon stone's birthday party and that leads us to nicole kidman's highest cinematic achievement: practical magic. If you disagree, aidan will be waiting in the parking lot to fight you on it.

thanks for listening - hit up our itunes to rate and subscribe AND/OR follow us on facebook and instagram!

XOXO

jasmin & aidan

5. and the oscar goes to... adele dazeem!

another week and a new episode - we're on a hot streak!

we've had some time to digest our thoughts on this year's academy awards. apparently reading the wrong name at the right time can really liven up a show that couldn't even be saved by mid-show candy and an adorable convict named gary.

aidan discusses the pros and cons of new phones and relationships (quit bragging already!) and jas discovers a pop culture jeff sessions look-a-like!

subscribe, sit back and share with the busy phillips to your michelle williams.

4. plot twist: she's not the president

wow! time flies when you're doing absolutely nothing to progress your podcast! luckily 2017 stomped up in this bitch and forced aidan and jas to commit to some resolutions INCLUDING actually doing a podcast instead of just talking about how they once had one.

in this episode jas describes what it was like being at the women's march in d.c. almost more importantly, jas explains hilarious exhibits in the smithsonian. we learn 1 of the 2 things that make jas angry because we're easily distracted... and our mom's said we couldn't do a "to be continued" on a podcast! take that, MOM(s)!

2. kween hillary

imagine yourself at the bottom of a staircase. that staircase represents knowledge of u.s. politics. the top represents knowing everything there is to know and the bottom represents knowing less-than-nothing about u.s. politics. jas and aidan stand firmly planted at the bottom, but try their darnedest to take just one step up that staircase of knowledge. listen along, like, share & subscribe!
