On our Big Show Big Tour this week, while we were being chauffeured from business to business to hand out freebies and shake hands, co-host Blair and I got into an amazingly effortless and deep discussion about apples and apple varieties.
I can’t stand Groundhog Day. There! I’ve said it! And I don’t mean the movie, I mean the ritual of watching a flea-bitten varmint crawl out of a hole every February 2nd.
On Friday The Big Show was invited to speak to a group of radio and broadcast journalism students at Fanshawe College. Derek “Rock” Botten, Blair and I offered our takes on the business of broadcasting and hoped to impart a bit of our best advice to them.
I used to be able to take-it-or-leave-it when it came to games on my iPhone but now one has a hold on me. And this monkey on my back is the subject of this week’s Brandt’s Randt.
The US Defence Department is finally allowing women to serve in combat roles.
I am a good Canadian but I still reserve the right to bitch about the cold!
We are quick to criticize politicians when things aren’t going well. Today I want to commend one for doing something right.
One of the best mainstream TV shows in recent memory signed off for good on Friday night. And unlike so many shows before it, its finale tied things up intelligently and appropriately, leaving fans with a chuckle and a tear.

The tug-of-war over the Ikea monkey is so cut and dried to me that I can’t believe court time is being wasted on it. And it’s the subject of this week’s Brandt’s Randt.
This happens far too often. Journalists make assumptions and they ought not do it.
Hubby loves spiral ham. He has wanted me to pick one up for a while now but I’ve been holding out because they’re so huge and there are only two of us. Plus, they’re twenty bucks and up and you’re paying for a bone!
A Comox, BC rock-radio host was fired last week in what appears to me to be a complete over-reaction to something he did on the air.
This week we talked on air about things that bug us when we share a bathroom with our significant other.
As a student of stand-up comedy I love to know little tidbits about the comics I enjoy. But imagine my surprise when I discovered a comic I’ve enjoyed for years is very likely a routine thief.
This was my on-air take on the whole Canada’s London campaign after a city committee approved the rebranding campaign. It still needs full council approval but Canada’s London is likely going to be spread all over the city. Ugh.
