On this episode of the National Talky League, Dave schools us all on the etymology of some common English phrases. Roger, surprisingly, knows one or two of them proving that he was paying attention in Mrs. Lacroix’s English class in high school. Actually, no he wasn’t, but he paid attention during Mr. Bedard’s class because that guy was awesome. Roger fantasizes about being mayor and floats the idea of a new tax to pay for the hockey arena. Dave gives us a rundown of movies with dubious messages. BONUS RANT: Dave Ware on film critique today. http://media.blubrry.com/national_talky_league/p/www.nationaltalkyleague.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/NTL016.mp3Podcast: Play in new window |…

Questions from this week’s episode: Should we forgive our defense minister for mischaracterizing lying about his role while serving in the military? Was it homophobic when Stephen Colbert called Donald Trump’s mouth a “c*ck holster?” Are lactaid drinkers as annoying as veggie bacon eaters? Does artisan soft-serve exist? And many more hits… Guys and gals, there’s a portion of this episode where Dave and Roger explore a friend’s role in dealing with a depressed or otherwise mentally ill person. There’s some good stuff in there. I hope you’ll give it a listen and let us know what you think. Thanks…

NTL 008 – 13 reasons why, awards are dumb, and a really nerdy discussion about poker scenes in movies
After NTL listener Brian told us he enjoyed our podcast on a flight back from Vancouver, we decided to make an episode that would last him all the way from Calgary to Las Vegas gate to gate. Enjoy! http://media.blubrry.com/national_talky_league/p/www.nationaltalkyleague.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/NTL008.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe: Android | RSS
NTL007 – Trudeau’s crappy feminism, Incumbent mayors, Gordon Ramsay, Alan Alda, Kelly Kapowski, a Dead jockey
The politics ranting is right up front today. A question from facebook about bias in the media turns to Roger’s displeasure with Trudeau and what passes for feminism. Dave wonders who, if anybody, can beat Nenshi due to his incumbent status. Then we discuss, in no particular order: Gordon Ramsay Alan Alda Kelly Kapowski A Dead jockey http://media.blubrry.com/national_talky_league/p/www.nationaltalkyleague.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/NTL007.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe: Android | RSS
Strong Opinions Loosely Held.
This is the National Talky League - A weekly conversation about what's going on with a distinctly Albertan perspective. Topics range from political and social issues to movies and pop culture.
Hosted by Roger Kingkade and Dave Ware, labels don't do much to describe these two. Sometimes conservative, sometimes liberal, sometimes progressive, never holding anything as sacred and always willing to call bullshit when they see it.
