Episode 1: Two Guys, Two Countries, One Love for News

Special thanks goes out to The Arrogant Worms (website: for the outro music, sampling from "Don't Go Into Politics." Thanks guys! Intro and a bit about our surprise wintry weather in Iowa and Ontario News You May Have Missed - a plethora of newsy bits that flew under the NORAD radar.

Issue Two -- Gagging Rona Ambrose or the Cons' noxious plan to derail Kyoto. Bush frowns, Harper jumps, in Alberta the oil boys celebrate. Will the world mourn? Where's Jack Layton? Issue Three -- Dear (demented) Leader has the bomb. 'You know, the bomb Dmitry. Remember we talked about what we would do if something went wrong with the bomb. . . ?'
