Fireworks, grilling, and spending time with friends. That's what you do on Canada Day, which happens to be the day we're releasing this episode. Oh, and Independence Day is this week, too, and all the Americans do that same stuff. Except bigger. And more explosive. Because that's how we do it here in America. Thinking about this got us all kinds of patriotic in the studio, and you get to enjoy the benefits. Listen in as we discuss:

  • Which country has a better national anthem?
  • Nicknames for America and Canada
  • Dave reveals his midlife crisis by eating avocado toast
  • How Canada became a sort-of semi-independent country
  • How Canadians learn about America
  • America's dubious history with dealing with issues
  • Books that help us learn about the histories of both nations
  • The problem The West Wing and comedic timing
