Dan and Kenton travel to Barley Brothers to sample some awesome stouts, have a sausage party, and pregame for the One Direction concert (just kidding!) They also discuss Emmy noms, OITNB, Ernest Cline’s new novel and why Philadelphians don’t know what Star Wars is.
There is a fellow dressed in yellow
Who creeps around all day
While others work, he’s the jerk
Who tows their cars away
From far and wide, the people hide
When e’er he comes around
For they all know, his wont’s to go
And ticket all he’s found
What makes this fellow dressed in yellow
Ply his nasty trade?
What makes this jerk make his life’s work
To make good folks afraid?
With my resolve, I tried to solve
The riddles posed above
So I asked the reader at my meter
Where ’twas that he got off
To my surprise, his yellow eyes
Were actually dead and grey
His ticket stack was damp and whack
His waistline curds and whey
Are you the jerk whose nasty work
Makes men cry in their beds?
Are you the ass whose smelly gas
Makes children shake with dread?
And then the fellow dressed in yellow
For a moment scratched his head
Looked to the sky tho’ wondering why
Then the bastard turned yellow and fled.
Dan & Kenton review their summer media wish lists, going over all the movies, TV shows, music and books that they plan to consume over the next few months. Also, Kenton rants against the Winnipeg Parking Authority and Dan reminisces about the Barenaked Ladies.
Dan’s son Jack returns to the podcast to slurp more chocolate milk and celebrate the end of the school year. Meanwhile Kenton & Dan discuss CBC Radio’s failure at selling ads, Marc Maron’s follow up episode to the Presidential interview, the #SCOTUS landmark decision on gay marriage, and is the new season of True Detective really that bad? Kenton says no.
Brian Williams returns? Hannibal leaves? NBC seems to be adding to it’s long list of bad decisions. Kenton & Dan talk about the irony of such a good show being cancelled prematurely, as well as Obama’s appearance on WTF, why Jurassic World is still a shitty movie, and the Canadian stereotypes of Tusk.

02:22 – Kenton saw Tusk and was thoroughly disgusted (spoilers)

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!
Dan & Kenton review the Game of Thrones finale whilst forgetting the names of every single character in the show. They don’t do too well with the names of the Silicon Valley characters, either. In the recommendations, Kenton loves women’s soccer and Dan hates Jurassic World.
Dan pitches his idea for the “CJOB Podcast Network” while Kenton pitches what would be the first “R-rated” Star Wars film. The Nerds also get into Star Wars toy collections, OITNB, and mourn the loss of Sir Christopher Lee.
Dan reacts to comments from last week’s episode on the (possible) death of radio and ties it in nicely to Monday’s Apple Keynote at WWDC. Kenton does his best Jimmy Iovine, aided by their similar hairstyles.
Kenton & Dan talk about last week’s Winnipeg radio upset that saw 680 CJOB knocked off the top of the ratings by CBC Radio One. They also discuss the future of radio in general and whether or not Winnipeg really needs a traffic chopper.
