We talk about county fairs, regional differences, and what makes us so tribal and nationalistic.
An episode that starts reviewing Nerdtacular, rapidly devolves into a show about cooking and especially grilling.
This week a classic potpourri of topics including self-diagnosis, dubious notoriety, posthumous awards, Super 8, how Doctor Who let Roger down, generation nomenclature, and your feedback.
What starts as a conversation about Doctor Who turns into a long predictive exploration of TV distribution in the future.
Tom and Roger talk about the weirdness of words and phrases, the beautiful city of Montreal, and more on the oddities of public transit.
