Hey Mike,
Sounding good... again, you can bring your levels down and bring your guests levels up.

Just like Dave Stieb, one day I'll be perfect.

Great guest... great story.

Oh and Mike, I agree with you on the Bell Let's Talk initiative.

February 13, 2013 @ 10:27 AM


Nah... perfect isn't great. Means it's not live.

People will think you fixed it all in post!

That's something nobody will ever accuse me of doing... fixing everything in post.

Don't change a thing. I love the chemistry and Il Duce story.

And Mike, how could you not like Silver Lining Playbook?

Fun listen - this is a very underrated podcast IMHO.

I started following after i went to Mike do you thank H&F every day for the followers. Content keeps us.

Good intro: all the information about who, what, etc was dropped nicely (including a very natural plug for your host) in just under 40 seconds with music. Like++

Just finished: No other comments. Good and interesting as always. I shouldn't have listened to this right around lunch time. So hungry.

It only took me 24 episodes to figure out how to start.

But now I've got it!

I wonder if Il Duce will comp me if I go into his place. I love Italian food.

I'll bet he would. He's a sweetheart.

I didn't hear the entire podcast but re: things w can't discuss. What the hell else is there to discuss besides those things? Maybe we can re-visit the gay "marriage" debate. Just because Harper says its a dead issue doesn't mean it wont be over-turned in the future?

I think you're living in the wrong country.... or the wrong century.

February 14, 2013 @ 3:58 PM


So I guess that's a no?

It's safe to say the abortion and gay marriage debates are done.

Now it's time to debate the decriminalization of cannabis and the right to die.

Oh... and we can still debate the flu shot, although I'm right about that one.

Even though I rarely agree with you, you usually dont write anything as dumb as what you just wrote.

Just because you agree with the current laws on abortion and gay "marriage" (notice the quotes), you've decided those two debates are done. That's funny!

Don't be so literal. You're welcome to debate it all you want, I'm just saying Canada will never look back with regards to the legalization of either.

Abortions will always be legal, as will gay marriages.

@ Mike, support a Canadian Company!
@ Il Duce, because you support a Canadian Company my opinion of you has changed....for the better.
@ Argue, Mike was right about you "I think you're living in the wrong country.... or the wrong century", I believe I said that on here a while ago. I tend to lean more to the wrong century!

Mike from L.,

LOng time no see. I hope all is well.

Maybe I am but I'd rather be different than be a clone.

Really fun episode. Loved Anthony's story. Mike - get a BlackBerry OS 10 device. Rosie you too!
Haven't seen the Grammies in over 10 years. I can't stand most of the music in it. And the song of year this year - ridiculous, I always get irritated when they play that in my favourite coffee shop.

February 15, 2013 @ 9:53 AM


Rosie - You are so annoying interrupting constantly especially with this pod cast.

SHUT UP & let the others talk.
I turned it off at 3 minutes
