Sneaky Dragon Episode 195

by David Dedrick on August 30, 2015


Hello, Sneakers! Our apologies for the delay this week. The Lower Mainland – the delightfully idiosyncratic name for Vancouver and its environs – had a massive windstorm yesterday that knocked down hundreds of trees and the power to thousands of homes for the better part of yesterday late into the night.

But, lucky you(?), here it is: Episode 195 of Sneaky Dragon! And since it’s nearing the end of summer, Ian and Dave are contractually obligated to discuss our local fair, the PNE and all the delightful things associated with it: junk food, protesters and soon-to-be dead animals. Also on the show: Dave plays a guitar solo; he also wants to make it clear that he REALLY likes country fairs; Ian’s shocking betrayal of his grandfather; Ian and Dave went and saw the Canadian rock band Sloan at the PNE – simultaneously, but not together – Dave has lots to say about them; Ian wishes concerts were shorter and Dave wishes they would get rid of the encore.

(We’re posting this to the sound of chainsaws and neighbours clearing away all the windfall.)

Thanks for listening.
