  • Edmontons Hub City Pitch, Nation Coffee, and YEG Burger

    Edmonton's Hub City Pitch, Nation Coffee, and YEG Burger

    28/05/2020 Duración: 48min

    Another Thursday is upon us and that means the boys from the Real Life Podcast were back with a brand new episode to get you through what's left of the week. On today's podcast, the boys were happy to welcome Emad from YEG Burger to talk a little bit about how the Sam Gagner interview came together as well as the Nation Burger Combo.   To kick off today's podcast, the guys got started with a look at a few Nation initiatives that are happening right now, including the new NationBeer whip as well as the launch of NationCoffee that's could drop as early as next week. Changing gears, the conversation turned to Edmonton's pitch to be a hub city for the NHL's hopeful return, and what, if anything, that would mean for the local economy. Would bringing in 12 teams worth of players to Edmonton even benefit our city? Would there be any downside to our city hosting? Moving on, the guys spoke to Emad from YEG Burger for a few minutes about what it has been like to work with Sam Gagner on May's burger of the month, tomorr

    25/05/2020 Duración: 01h11min

    Another Monday is upon us and that means the boys were back with a brand new episode of the Real Life Podcast to get you through the week. This week, the guys looked at Jay's back alley shenanigans, the NHL's plan to return to play, The Last Dance, and more.    To kick off this week's episode, the boys got started with a look at the reopening of businesses and how much it means to everyone to do normal things that we may have taken for granted in years past. With the pandemic still in full effect, people from all walks of life have been finding new ways to connect with one another and the boys took a moment to appreciate this silver lining in an otherwise dark time. Changing gears, the guys got an update from Jay on the back alley shenanigans that he brought up a couple of weeks back. With upgraded surveillance equipment in hand, Jay walked us through the next steps in his battle against stray cats and coyotes that have been congregating behind his house. Back to sports, the guys walked through the 24-team pl

  • Frozen in time with Sam Gagner

    After skipping the Monday show because of the long weekend, the boys were back with a brand new episode of the Real Life Podcast and were thrilled to welcome Sam Gagner to the show to talk a little bit about life in quarantine, backyard rinks, the Edmonton Oilers, and a whole lot more.   With limited time to talk to Sam Gagner, the boys jumped right in with a look at the Burger of the Month he's doing with YEG Burger and why he felt like it was important to support the Edmonton Food Bank during these strange days. Speaking of strange times, Gagner spoke a little bit about how he's been living while on lockdown, including some talk about staying in shape and building backyard rinks. If you didn't know, Gagner's dad, former NHLer Dave Gagner, started a company called Custom Ice Rinks that builds custom ice skating rinks all over the place and that inspired Sam to build one of his own. Changing gears, the conversation was steered back to life in Edmonton and the potential for our city to become a Hub City for th

    14/05/2020 Duración: 53min

    Thursday afternoon means it’s time for a brand new episode of the Real Life Podcast! As always, the boys are back with another hour of nonsense to try and keep everyone entertained, informed, and make sense of this crazy little thing called life. To kick off this week's podcast, the boys got started with a conversation about Alberta reopening its economy and whether or not that means anyone will be loosening their own personal restrictions. From restaurants and bars allowing the public back through the doors to golf courses and driving ranges doing what they can, the boys discussed their approach to getting back to normal and whether or not it's too soon to try and make it work. Getting back to sports, the boys looked at the return of sports and tried to figure out what would happen if some of the league's stars refused to play out of concerns for their personal safety. With no clear answer available, there's no doubt that this story will have plenty of twists and turns as time moves along and the pro sports

    Another Monday is upon us and that means it's time for a brand new episode of the Real Life Podcast to keep everyone entertained and try to make sense of this crazy little thing called life. As always, the boys spend the hour discussing what's been happening in self-isolation, the world of sports, and whatever else is going on.   To kick off today's episode, the boys jumped in with a look at Instagram bots following and commenting on everyone's posts these days, which naturally turned into a deep dive on Chris Pronger's travel company and whether or not this is simply a vanity project for the former NHLer. From there, the boys turned their attention to some of the changes that were recommended from an infectious disease expert on how the NHL can safely resume play. Needless to say, if the league actually instituted some of these policies, the game we love would look nothing like what we last watched back in March. Sticking with sports, the UFC held a fanless event this past weekend and that spawned a conversa

  • Home projects, dating, and roadside treasures

    07/05/2020 Duración: 57min

    Another Thursday in self-isolation means a fresh episode of the Real Life Podcast is in the books and ready to keep you entertained for an hour while also helping you forget about the world for a little bit.   To kick off today's podcast, the boys got started with a look at the construction that's going on around the city now that people are stuck at home and looking to improve their situations. From buying new phones, to home improvement projects that have been put off for years, to finding new hobbies, people are being forced to come up with ways to keep themselves moving forward and it's been interesting to see how folks are approaching that problem. Sticking with the challenges of this strange time, Chalmers wanted to know what dating is like when you're unable to go on a proper date so Baggedmilk, the lone single guy on the podcast, jumped in to talk about what it's like to try and meet someone right now, including the benefits and obvious drawbacks. From there, as expected to anyone that listens regular

    04/05/2020 Duración: 58min

    A new week in self-isolation means a brand new episode of the Real Life Podcast is here and ready to keep you entertained for an hour while also trying to forget about the world for a little bit.   To kick off today's show, the boys got right into it with a conversation about Jay's new #ChumGate t-shirt that was made for him by podcast listener, Surveyor Brett. Unsurprisingly, Chalmers was rattled by the shirt seeing as he completely disagrees with the notion that he cheated, but it did inspire him to come up with a rebuttal shirt of his own. What that shirt will look like is yet to be seen, but it appears as though the beef between Chalmers and Surveyor Brett has only just begun. Changing gears entirely, Wanye and the Squire offered some insight into a business conversation they had about the eventual re-opening Little Brick cafe. Seeing as these are strange days, the concept of re-opening a cafe and turning a profit while also keep its staff and customers safe is a lot trickier than it may initially appear.

    Another Thursday in self-isolation means a brand new episode of the Real Life Podcast is set and ready to keep you entertained for an hour while also trying to forget about the world for a little bit.    To start off today's podcast, the guys jumped right into their Keep it 100 segment since Chalmers couldn't contain his annoyance about the lineups at Home Depot. As a general contractor, the inability to get in the store has impacted his ability to get his jobs done and it led to an epic rant about what these places should do to keep the flow of customers moving. That led into the other boys venting about what's been bothering them over the past seven days, which made for a spicy start to the podcast. Changing gears entirely, Jay was thrilled to make an exciting announcement about Superstore liquor stores picking up NationBeer in the coming weeks, which means that Nation citizens will be able to pick up this delicious nectar all over the province very soon. Back to the nonsense, the guys quickly looked at the

    27/04/2020 Duración: 57min

    The start of a new week means a fresh episode of the Real Life Podcast is set and ready to get you started on another week in self-isolation. This week, the boys looked at the NBA reopening its practice facilities, great TV shows from the early 2000s, comets getting too close to the earth, listener questions, and a lot more.    To kick off today's podcast, the guys jumped in with a look at how they've been living over the past few days and what they've been doing to fill the time. As this period of self-isolation continues, the guys have had to get creative with how they fill their days and it's led to participating in some unique activities. Somehow, this conversation led to some space talk as it was reported over the weekend that there is a monstrous comet that's set to pass by the earth. Did you know that Wanye is a big space guy with all kinds of random knowledge about comets and asteroids? Changing gears entirely, the boys looked back at some old TV shows, including the Tom Green Show and Pimp My Ride, w

    Another Thursday in quarantine means a brand new episode of the Real Life Podcast is here to try and keep you entertained for an hour while we all try to forget about the world for a little bit. This week, the guys looked at the Edmonton riverboat sinking, Rogers Place being rumoured as a possible location for the NHL to resume play, and a whole lot more.    To start off today's podcast, the guys started in with a look at some of the words they're unable to pronounce, including the name of famed director Quentin Tarantino. Why did they start the podcast this way? Absolutely no reason at all, that's why. Getting away from that nonsense, the topic turned to the fate of the Edmonton riverboat after it was damaged as a result of rising water levels and the rush of ice that slammed it into the river bank. So what happens with the boat now? The damage is extensive but one thing is for sure, the boys hope that ownership will be able to fix the riverboat and keep it a part of Edmonton's landscape.

    Another week in quarantine means a brand new episode of the Real Life Podcast is here to try and keep you entertained for an hour while trying to ignore the real world. This week, the guys looked at podcast game, Live Nation's new cancellation policy, fanless sporting events, and a lot more.   To kick off this week's podcast, the guys started with a look at Chalmers' brush with fame after he had a back and forth with a listener that recognized his name through email. While the story itself was majorly random, it was a confirmation that there are actually people that listen to this show despite the complete and total lack of format and consistency. Changing gears, Wanye told the story of Live Nation changing their cancellation policy for events affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and how one of the world's biggest event promotors believes that there won't be any events until the fall of 2021. Basically, according to some of the higher-ups in management at Live Nation, the company doesn't foresee mass gatherings

    Another Thursday in self-quarantine means another episode of the Real Life Podcast is here to try and keep you entertained for an hour while also ignoring the real world if only for a moment or two. In today's episode, the guys looked at an all-McDavid team, the Michael Jordan documentary that's set to hit Netflix, Gretzky versus Ovechkin, and a whole lot more.  To start off today's podcast, the guys kicked things off with a look at the new Michael Jordan documentary, The Last Dance, that will be hitting Netflix a little bit later this month. Seeing as this doc is supposed to be an all-access pass into the Chicago Bulls, the guys wondered which Oilers squad would be the most interesting to look at, provided that they'd be willing to pull the curtain back and get the real story. From the first overall picks to 2006 Cup run to the glory days in the 80s, the Oilers are a franchise with plenty of stories that everyone would LOVE to hear provided they could get the whole picture. Changing gears a little bit, the

    A new week means a fresh episode of the Real Life Podcast is set and ready for your earholes, and the boys are back with a fresh hour of laughs to hopefully brighten your day and help you ease into a new week. To open today's podcast, the boys started with a look at the Easter long weekend and how it was one of the strangest long weekends on record, seeing as the usual family get-togethers that happen at this time of the year were thrown out the window. Moving on to real life, the guys spend a few minutes discussing their feelings as they pertained to the tragic news that came out over the weekend after Colby Cave passed away as a result of a brain bleed. Needless to say, this news shook the hockey world to its core as everyone tried to process the loss of a hard-working young man that was taken far too soon. Next up, the guys tried to move on from the tragedy with a look at Gary Bettman making the rounds in the media and talking about how the NHL wants to continue their season, though, he has admitted that a

    Another week in quarantine means a brand new episode of the Real Life Podcast is here to try and keep you entertained for an hour while trying to ignore the real world. This week, the guys looked at Anton Slepyshev signing a contract extension in the KHL, Colby Cave's health scare, and the first coffee the boys have ever had.  To kick off today's podcast, the guys started with a look at quarantine protocols and how everyone is dealing with being extra cautious and socially distant. Somehow, the concept of cleanliness spawned a conversation about Chalmers only drinking one coffee in his entire life and how it wreaked havoc on his insides. As it turns out, all five guys had their own coffee origin stories and each one was as odd as the next. Next up, Chalmers voiced an impromptu beef with motorcycle riders which led into a bizarre sequence of stories about boat rentals, Seadoo scams, and personal vendettas with the insurance world. Turning to hockey, there has actually been a run of Oilers news over the past fe

    Another week in quarantine means another episode of the Real Life Podcast to try and keep you entertained for an hour while trying to ignore the real world if only for a moment or two. This week, the guys looked at their favourite memories from Rexall Place, finding good news in tough times, and denying Eric Clapton of a new vest.  To start today's podcast, the guys got going with a look at how everyone is living during these strange quarantine days. Chalmers confessed that being stuck in the house giving him an excuse to lay on the couch and do nothing which could become a problem, while Wanye wonders if he'll ever be able to get back to being productive even when the Coronavirus pandemic is behind us. As it turns out, laying around the house can be addicting, though, that laziness somehow spawned a story from Chalmers' childhood where his dad's band opened for Eric Clapton and how his old man turned the blues legend down when Clapton asked if he could have his vest. It's weird, but it's true. Changing gears

    With the quarantine life extending into its third week, the boys were back with another fresh episode of the Real Life Podcast to, hopefully, keep you entertained for an hour and maybe even provide a few laughs along the way. This week, the guys looked at the Tiger King fallout, NationBeer selling out, home haircuts, and a whole lot more. To kick off today's podcast, the guys jumped in with a look at the NationBeer deliveries that Jay has been doing around the city over the past couple of days. Unsurprisingly, Nation Citizens came through like only this community can, completely selling out our first batch of the beer in a matter of days. As a result, the boys now have to figure out a plan to get a second batch made up in short order which is an incredible problem to have. From there, the boys revisited Tiger King now that everyone had a chance to finish the series and further broke down what is undoubtedly one of the strangest series to go viral in quite some time. Changing gears entirely, Wanye revealed tha

    With society still locked down and sports paused for a third week, the boys were back with another fresh episode of the Real Life Podcast to, hopefully, give you a few laughs and help you kill an hour of your time. This week, the guys looked at the new Nation Beer launch, Tiger King, quarantine life, and much more. To start off today's episode, we looked at the launch of the new edition of NationBeer, which is now on pre-sale through Dog Island Brewing! Due to the overwhelming response from Nation citizens so far, Jay talked about how he'll be hitting the streets to make deliveries to our loyal customers to make sure that everyone is staying hydrated through this time of self-quarantine. Changing gears, the boys started with a look at Tiger King but then got instantly distracted by the way TV shows are being cancelled or altered just to be able to stay on the air. (SPOILERS) Back to Tiger King, the guys broke down some of the characters and how they all interact in what can undoubtedly be described as one of

    With society shutting down, we've decided to ramp up our podcast! We're now dropping two episodes a week for your listening pleasure! This week, Chalmers, Wanye, Jay, and Yaremchuk were on the pod to talk about a plethora of topics. Jay got drunk and ordered a Peleton, which didn't go over too well in his house. We have the audio from the moment he broke the news to his girlfriend. Chalmers is very intrigued by the idea of a joint quarantine with another family, but he had some concerns about the whole process. We also planned a movie night around the viral docu-series "Tiger King". There was even a little bit of hockey talk mixed into the podcast!

    The sportsless life rolls on but that didn't stop the boys from getting together virtually to record a brand new episode of the Real Life Podcast. This week, the guys recapped the personal goals they set for this period of self-isolation, broke down how everyone is passing the time, snack rationing, and a whole lot more. To kick off this week's podcast, Jay told the story of a recent drunken purchase he made despite not necessarily thinking it through. Now the proud owner of a new Peloton bike, Jay recalled having to explain to his significant other why the bike was a good purchase and where it's going to fit in their house. Changing gears, Chalmers explained how he is now homeschooling his boys during the school shut down and how coming up with a lesson plan is something he never thought he'd have to do in his life. Then again, how could anyone have predicted the ways they'd be spending time during a pandemic? Speaking of passing the time, the guys offered a few updates on their social distancing goal, inclu

    With all kinds of time on our hands with not a whole lot to do, the boys decided to record a second episode of the Real Life Podcast this week as a means of creating a little bit more contact but also to have some social interaction with each other albeit from a distance, of course.  To start off today's podcast, the guys started with a look at how social distancing is going so far and what everyone is doing to stay connected. All three of Tyler, Jay, and Baggedmilk had different ideas and ways to keep in touch with friends at a time when we're not supposed to be in the same room as each other, and it will be interesting to see how the methods change and adapt as the practice of self-isolating continues. Changing gears, there is obviously a lot of free time that has come up as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and that spawned a conversation about the best sports movies of all time. Seeing as all three guys are of varying ages and eras, the lists they put together were about as random as you'd expect. Lastly,
