A few microphones and beers make Slightly Sauced a show about everything and nothing. We don’t pretend to be experts on the issues, but we’ll certainly give them a shot. Our regular panel brings a quirky Canadian focus to debate and discussion.
Hey, at least it’s not another terrible tech podcast.

Hey on this week’s show, we’re talking about an IndieGoGo campaign that has made more than $1M despite the fact that the device that its selling has been widely debunked as impossible to create. Bogus health claims, spurious business fronts and half truths abound when we dig into the curious case of the Healbe GoBe.
On this week’s SlightlySauced, we take another look at the future tech from Episode 177. It all starts with listener email, which gets us deep into a philisophical discussion about transporters, the Ship of Theseus, and the economy of Star Trek, after which we’re on to the possibilities of Google Glass, robot legs, the Pono Music Player, audiophiles, hipsters, and listening to vinyl. Finally, Tyler teaches us some advanced Michio Kaku shit about transporters and entanglement that makes Jon’s head hurt.
The return of Dana is upon us! To celebrate his comeback, we’re talking about films that we’ve seen recently. A lot of these movies were nominated for some kind of Oscar or another, but some are older, and others came out too recently to get a nod from the awards show. Along the way, we discuss the existence of Cumberb***hes, the physics of how curling rocks move, SeaWorld’s labour practices, titty shows in Vegas, some kid who snuck into the Freedom Tower to take pictures, space ships, and TED 2014. It’s a whirlwind show and a grand ole time. Listen up!
On this week’s SlightlySauced, we take a question from new listener Chris and talk about future technologies that have us excited. Kayla wants a dream playback machine, while Jon is all about the holodeck, and Jake figures that transporter technology is going to be a serious problem for security. It’s a great show, so grab your headphones and a beer, and get SlightlySauced with us.
The weather is our arch nemesis! No new show this week guys, but we’ve got a great old one from the archives. It’s our first contact with Dharmesh, the debut of the Ernie theme, and an all guys show loaded with politics and good argument. Hey, if you can’t get new content, may as well enjoy something good from the old days. We’ll be back next week with a new show.
Original Show Notes:
On this week’s episode of SlightlySauced, our regular crew works to extricate Federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty’s foot from his mouth, after he publicly stated that “there is no such thing as a bad job.” Is this a truism, and if so, what does it mean for future Canadians and their job prospects? Are all jobs ultimately equal and better than being unemployed? We have a great discussion, answer some listener email, and debut Ernie’s new theme song! All that and more, when we get SlightlySauced.
On this week’s SlightlySauced, we’re talking about banks and trains. The trains come first, in response to an email sent to us by Ernie; the banks come second, when we talk about an American with a Canadian bank account who had all of his money scammed by a Malaysian dude with a Canadian accomplice. Along the way, we go off on a tangent about password security that leaves Jon foaming at the mouth.
This week’s SlightlySauced is lazy. It’s only 30 minutes long though, and it’s really funny, so you should listen to it anyway. We answer emails from Ernie and Chris, b***h about bagpipes, talk about driving to Toronto, and share some of our favourite comments from internet p**nography sites.
It’s happened again: Something came up, and we couldn’t get the group together on recording night. Thanks to other commitments, there’s no new content this week, but we are re-releasing a favourite show from about a year back. We’ll have a new episode for you next week.
This week’s SlightlySauced is, well, somewhat unfocused. We start off with listener email and a frank discussion about professional wrestling, and then avoiding our intended topic, continue on to talk about backed up sewer lines and a hypothetical man pissing on a hypthetical face. Your face, in fact. Confused? Intrigued? Listen to the funniest (and perhaps strangest) episode yet to find all of the answers that you’re looking for.
On this week’s episode of SlightlySauced, the guys talk about mining. What’s up with all the foreign-owned resource extraction outfits operating inside of Canadian borders? If Jake digs a bunker under his home in anticipation of the zombie apocalypse and finds gold, can he keep it? Could we mine the moon for resources by dropping a bunch of illegals with pickaxes on its surface, minecraft style? Is it an asteroid or a meteor that consists entirely of ice? What exactly does Hawaii contribute to the world economy? All of these questions and more are answered, so grab a beer and get SlightlySauced with us.
This week’s SlightlySauced is a blast from the past! We’re going way back to Episode 4 with an archives show that has become relevant once again.
You see here in KW, we’ve been debating the construction of a light rail transit system for about 10 years now. Construction started this past spring, and we’ve got a municipal election coming up in October of this year. Two of the candidates that are running have announced their intention to cancel the project should they be elected.
Seems like it might be a good time to revisit the issue at hand. We’ll definitely talk about this more as the election approaches. Anyway, enjoy the old show, and we’ll be back next week with some fresh content for you.
This week on SlightlySauced, we remember a simpler time, a more innocent time, a time 10 years ago this past Sunday, when the American public was stunned, shocked, and horrified to witness the unveiling of Janet Jackson’s right b****t - for 9/16ths of a second. A lot has changed since that most memorable of Superbowl halftime shows. The media landscape is markedly different, p**n review shows are a real thing, and beach time fun can lead to pearls in the most unlikely of places. Tune in to this week’s SlightlySauced to hear all about it!
