Living in Vancouver has afforded me countless opportunities
My most favourite (besides living within walking distance of a gourmet donut shop), is all the live shows I have been able to see in St. John’s in a million years
Since I’ve been here, I’ve seen The Monkees, Against Me!, The Soup Nazi, Nick Cave, Billy Bragg (3 times!), Rancid, The Descendents, Dead Kennedys, The Flaming Lips, Lauryn Hill, Chris Rock, Gerry Dee, Kings of Leon, J. Cole, and Anderson Paak
It’s been an incredible year on that front.
But perhaps the unlikely highlight was that my absolute favourite podcast, Stuff You Should Know came to town for a live recording, just in time for International Podcast Day !!!
So Christina and I went to The Vogue Theatre, where we’d seen Gerry Dee back in April, and watch Josh and Chuck record ‘How the Ford Pinto Works‘, a live taping all about the notoriously explosive death trap of yesteryear
It was so exciting, I spilled an entire glass of wine all over myself
