This week on the show that goes in emergency toilet for five minutes and don't say sorry, the host of CBC's q, TOM POWER is here to make our moms proud, discuss the pressure of being a national conduit for cultural grief, sample our Cartems catering and swear off Tim Hortons donuts forever. PLUS: John is fresh out of the hospital, and Tom lends his CBC interviewing skills to give that situation the gravity it requires. Shameful fandoms! Woodstock '99! London Fog! Ham Roberts! And a cameo appearance from Day 1 RGS loyalist Mitch Pollock.

Stefan is tending to Hollywood business and John is in the hospital dying, so Justin is left all alone to go one-on-one with the low-key heartthrob of Canadian music, Arkells bassist NICK DIKA! Nick is back to discuss the band's Olympic adventure in Korea, the problematic un-wokeness of Josh Donaldson, the allure of tanking, Juno festivities interfering with his fantasy drafts, and #TheRally! This is but a taste.
