Episode 228 - Art Retreat, Hell I Just Got Here!


So this one is out a bit earlier than usual on Saturday because we recorded it on a little shuttle mission between camping at Pancake Bay provincial Park and home.  

Isabelle is on an art retreat this weekend up by Lake Superior.  Jon and I came for night one, but once the arting starts, it's time for us to head home.  Plus, Jon is not much on anywhere that doesn't have wifi....

We talked about art of course, about how the Group of Seven are hacks (at least as far as I'm concerned) and how the world is a really small place.  Turns out that the person Isabelle is retreating with has a daughter who I taught back in the 90s, and she also knows two guys that my brother teaches at Fanshawe.  Wild.

Episode 227 - Squeaky Mouthfeel


No, not that Squeaky.....

We're back from our whirlwind tour of Quebec and Ontario!  That means back to our regular routine too.

ISABELLE GOT AN ONTARIO ARTS COUNCIL GRANT.  This is a big deal.  She will be doing collaborative work with Jon!  You may know Jon from such podcasts as 'The Jonathan Files'.

There was a cute kid in the store.  I got the slowest cashier ever, she's very nice though.

Hey, the fire ban has been lifted, maybe we'll have a backyard fire tonight!


Sadly, they had no cheese curds at the store, so no poutine.  

What foods have a unique mouthfeel?  Like cheese curds that squeak?

Episode 226 - Who Doesn’t Love Structure?


We’re driving from Boucherville to London. Isabelle is tired and bored. So let’s pidcast!  That ought to wake her up which will keep us alive.

 I hate all people on the road.

se saw some cool stuff in Boucherville including the islands neabry which are a provincial park.  Plus we went on bike rides. 

we took the 407 to avoid people.  Did I mention that I hate people? 

Cool stuff is happening at the university. 

I’m still not fond of the traveling public. 

BREAKING: ISABELLE GOT AN ONTARIO ARTS COUNCIL GRANT!!  This was not on the podcast, but we found out when we got to Mom's house.

Also, I hate people.
