Podcast episode 494ish: Myq Kaplan

This episode ran over two weeks on the radio, but we're releasing it as one giant podcast episode because I think you can handle it. Myq Kaplan talked a lot when he was in town a few weeks ago. I was enjoying it so much, I just kept going. Because why not? There are no rules in podcastland! We don't break the rules; we make the rules! We talked about robots, trees in Brooklyn, stereotypes of New Jersey, poop jokes, Jeopardy!, Nickelback, language, favourites, Dimethyltryptamine, and he helped kick off (and name) our New Joke (and/or) Old Joke segment with two good ones.

Get started now! Or later... or not at all. Your choice. But you really should. You can click below or find us (and subscribe to us!) on iTunes or Stitcher or wherever fine podcasts are downloaded.

May 13: Myq Kaplan (part 1)

Hello radio listeners. Tonight we've got the beginning of a two-parter. Myq Kaplan was in town recently playing Yuk Yuk's so we sat down to talk. And we talked. And talked. I like the way he thinks. And speaks. So I'm going to run it in two parts on the radio. When it drops as a podcast, however, you can listen to the whole thing all at once. We've had Myq on with us before, back in 2012. I first saw him, I believe, on Last Comic Standing in a year prior to 2012. He didn't win but he was on a fair number of episodes and got tons of screen time. That's my take-away from that season. Since then, the Jersey boy who got his start in standup in Boston and who now resides in Brooklyn has done The Tonight Show and Conan and The Late Late Show all that kind of high-profile stuff. And tonight he'll be on my dog-and-pony show!

We're on the air at 11 pm on CFRO 100.5 FM. Tune in there or livestream us at or find us on your TuneIn Radio app.

Podcast episode 493ish: Fred Ewanuick

Oh, we had fun with Fred Ewanuick on Sunday. It was a festive atmosphere, it being Sam Tonning's birthday and Sam's dad being in the control room with him and Fred a bit loopy because it was past his bedtime. He told us about the role he's most proud of – as Phillip in the "edge of your seat, non-stop action thrill ride," Absolute Zero. He did some cold read promos for us. And of course we talked about his reprisal as Hank on the new Corner Gas Animated. And lots more, of course, because that's how we roll. (On a sad note, our station archives were a little wonky, levels-wise, so the sound isn't as top-notch as you're used to hearing, but it's still listenable.)

Here you go. Hear for yourself below. Or go find us no iTunes or Stitcher or elsewhere and subscribe. And leave us a review while you're at it.

May 6: Fred Ewanuick

The ageless Fred Ewanuick
We've got a real, live cartoon as our guest tonight. Fred Ewanuick (pronounced: Fred) is one of the stars of Corner Gas Animated. His last visit with us, he was a mere mortal, having starred for x-number of seasons (google it!) on the original Corner Gas series and feature film, as well as his own sitcom, Dan For Mayor. We'll see what life is like as a cartoon character and how the animated Hank is different from the live version. I bet he appreciates not having to shower or shave. And I think he's naturally an animated character so it was probably an easy transition for him. We had a fun conversation when he was first here 15 months ago. I believe we sat in different rooms then. This time around, I'll allow him to sit in the same room as me. He's earned my trust. And Sam Tonning will be here this time, so that'll add even more to the good times.

We are on the air at 11 pm on CFRO 100.5 FM so tune in, won't you? You can livestream, if need be, at or you can find us on the TuneIn Radio app.

Podcast episode 492ish: Ryan Beil

This episode is brought to you by baseball and fish. Those were the recurring themes in our hour and a bit with actor/improviser Ryan Beil. He's a huge baseball fan and part-time fish. Last time Ryan was with us was eight long years ago. In this episode, we find out a little-known fact about his old Ryan the Trainee character from the A&W commercials. He also creates a joke out of thin air, tells us about auditioning for a French play, getting roughed up by George Costanza, and explains the term "corpsing."
