The Montreal podcast that started it all celebrates it’s 250th episode right here in episode 255! So normally every 50 episodes we use a nice big round number as an excuse to do a live episode with some mixed degrees of success. The last time we did this it was February 2020 for episode 200 and Walter’s supposed retirement from co-hosting. Since th…
 
The Montreal arts and entertainment podcast that dares to ask comedian Elspeth Wright: “What are your thoughts on two-way mirrors?” – that question of course asked by none other than Mike Carrozza in episode 253.

The Montreal podcast that asks improvisor and storyteller Matt Goldberg: “Given the hard evidence that there is a God, would you have sex with God?” – asked of course by the incomparable Tyler Lemco in episode 249.

This question asked to him WAY back in November by the incomparable Professor H. Shayne Hawke in epi…
 
We never wanted to win a Golden Globe anyways. It is very difficult to do a show that was established as a vehicle to promote other people’s stuff when there is very little stuff happening due to that pesky global pandemic. I feel like this time around in the lockdown is hitting everyone a little harder. There are less restaurants doing unique deli…
 
For 2021 we kept things a little more low key than usual for our annual shit show. I think 4 people is tied with our smallest previous shit show but I’m too lazy to go back into the expansive GPYS archives to verify that claim. Why? Well, if you haven’t noticed the entire province (nay country, nay planet) is a bit of shit show right now so in a wa…

So the last time we recorded an episode in the back of Grumpy’s bar was probably March 2nd, 2020. It was episode 202 with BOIDS. That was over 570 days ago. That’s madness. But all the same it felt tremendously special to be back at the back of Grumpy’s recording a podcast after a year and half of not doing it. So special in fact that we decided we…

The Montreal podcast that asks Léa Philippe and Émilie Allard of the FAR Festival: “Have you ever destroyed someone?” (as asked by John Hatz from I Love Neon in episode 236).

I’m n…
