Geeks and Beats podcast, episode 190: Canadiana Day

Okay, so we’re a little late with this. Or maybe we’re celebrating Canada Day on July 4 as a poke in the eye to Donald Trump. Most likely, though, this is just the result of bad planning. In any event, we’re okay with it.

Canada Day viral video star Brittlestar joins the geeks to look at Canada’s contributions to comedy and music. We uncover the loophole that created Bob and Doug Mackenzie, how Barenaked Ladies channeled our own Michael Hainsworth, and review the top songs that celebrate Canada.

Take a listen.
