Ep. 9: Captain Canuck, with Luke Nicholson

Celine Dion, curling, pierogis, whether or not Canadians actually say "eh," poutineall this and more on this week's episode on Canada. My high school classmate Luke tells me about living in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, which even Canadians assume is right outside Toronto. I chide him for not knowing about Grimes or "Orphan Black," and we catch up on where in the world our parents are these days.

Pop culture recommendations:

Luke: The Head and The Heart, Angus and Julia Stone, Birdy
Becca: "Stranger Things" and "The Get Down"

Ep. 7: Sweet Oz, with Amy Keeble

I learn how to eat Vegemite properly and where rugby got its name with high school friend Amy Keeble. I try my hand at an awful Australian accent, and we quiz each other on Down Under vocabulary. Grab your Billabong board shorts and a chockie-bickie and settle in. You'll be DEVO if you miss out on this one. When in doubt, just remember: Hugh Jackman = GOOD.

Pop culture recommendations:

Amy: "The Office" and "Parks and Recreation"
Becca: "Dime Store Cowgirl" by Kacey Musgraves, "Veep" and "Silicon Valley"
