The Montreal podcast that will forever and always hold Walter J. Lyng near and dear to its heart returns! Just like live shows! It was 10 years ago in 2011 that Walter first brought Pitching Knife Fight to the Montreal Fringe Festival, and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that later that same summer he would decide to start a podcast with me. I’m n…

In what’s become an annual tradition, Go Plug Yourself proudly presents our Annual Shit Show Spectacular! What is the shit show you might ask? Well, it’s a simple enough premise. We get some of our favorite people in the Montreal comedy scene (and sometimes pro-wrestlers) to sit around and drink and we record the whole thing and call it a podcast. …
 
The Montreal podcast that asks the creators of Total Crap (Simon Lacroix & Pascal Pilote): How do you organize your work to make sure you don’t miss anything?

On June 11th, there was no episode of the Go Plug Yourself Podcast. At that time we posted the post below. We stand by these statements and stand by our recommendations of these podcasts that you should really be checking out. We are taking the time to reflect upon recent events. Taking the time to learn and educate ourselves. Taking the time to li…
 
It’s hard to believe that it was only a year ago that the thing we were all mad about was the last season of Game of Thrones. Simpler times. Lawrence, Chris and I take a look back at the series, the final season and more. We talk about favorite characters, memories of watching the show and try to figure out if the last season was really as bad as i…
 
The Montreal comedy podcast that used to do interviews but is now just me and some comedians talking about whatever we feel like it.

The Montreal podcast that brings Montrealer Michael Mando right into your ears even though we’re all in self-isolation. Michael (once again) puts us all to shame with his drive and motivation as he has spent his time in isolation literally learning how to use sound editing software to put his music together. Mind you, he also has some inspiring wor…
 
It’s episode 3 of Montreal’s favorite quarantine podcast! Go Quarantine Yourself (because you love your family)! So I know last episode we said we were going to talk about our favorite TV shows but Inés lost her voice and Lawrence had to work SO we brought in the only man who could possibly step up to fill in for not one, but TWO co-hosts down: Wal…
 
Hey, remember back in Go Plug Yourself Episode 200 where I said “thank goodness Lawrence wasn’t on the cruise with the COVID-19” outbreak and we all laughed it off? Those were the days. So, in light of our current state of lockdown we thought we would mix it up a little bit by continuing the transformation of Go Plug Yourself into Go Quarantine You…
 
Well, this is weird, right? First of all, it’s Sunday and not Thursday which means this episode is 4 days late. But that’s probably not the weirdness that you thought of when I said “this is weird”, is it? Anyhow, thanks to the magic of modern technology we should be able to get back on schedule for both Go Plug Yourself and 9ES (with all hosts and…
 
The Montreal podcast that asks comedian Ben Miner: What do you do to get yourself through the winter? We had Ben Miner on the show three years ago and a lot has changed since then.

The Montreal podcast that asks Sean Arsenian and April Furlotte (aka Sweetheart Grip): If you could be reincarnated as a vegetable, which one, and why? You might know Sean from the seminal, very heavy Montreal band “The Great Sabatini” (and if you don’t well you should get to know them and also listen to our podcast with them here). But maybe you d…
 
The Montreal podcast that asks Louis Rastelli: How do you explain your hair? Let me try to put together a loose timeline of events for you.

Fed up with mainstream printed press like The Gazette and not satisfied with alt-weeklies like The Mirror and The Hour, Louis turne…
 
The Montreal podcast that asks Ram Krishnan (of The Unsettlers): What do you think the future holds for Greta Thunberg? Normally Ram Krishnan plays bass for The Unsettlers, but on November 7th at La Vitrola, he will be behind the drum kit. Even more normally, Ram pours us beer at Grumpy’s. It’s a little strange to think of the sheer volume of beer …
 
The Montreal podcast that asks Robert Green of The Green Party: Who is the most overrated superhero of all time? Nonstop hard hitting questions on our first real foray into the world of political interviews. Robert Green is the Green Party candidate for NDG-Westmount and he was kind enough to come on the show to tell his tale of how one long haired…
 
The Montreal podcast that asks Chris Venditto (who’s organizing a Montreal Roast Battle): Can you describe the circumstances that lead you into a relationship with a bear?

The Montreal podcast that asks Donovan King: What is the weirdest, most nonsensical thing you were bullied for? Donovan King can tell you a lot about the darker parts of Montreal’s history. The hidden things, sometimes macabre, that for one reason or another aren’t in the history books. In fact, he can tell you so much about those things that he is…
 
The Montreal podcast that asks Inés Anaya: What is the one food you would eat, even if it was bad? Inés is just one of the many, many rising comedy talents in Montreal. She doesn’t like horror movies though. A fun drinking game would be to take a shot every time we ask her if she’s seen one horror movie or another. You’ll probably drink a few shots…
 
The Montreal podcast that asks Katia Lyng: Who is your favorite on-screen Batman? So, as I am sure will be readily apparent from the moment you start listening to them bicker banter, Katia is Walter’s sister. They occasionally refer to The Undertaker as their Dad. It’s weird. Katia is on the show not just because of nepotism but also because she is…
