Episode 167: The Learn'd Astronomer (with Jackson McDonald)

This week, it’s the return. The show is back with brand new material, as CanucksArmy’s JACKSON McDONALD joins Justin to talk the Canucks’ deployment of Nikolay Goldobin, the on-going war over the Russian winger between rabid factions on either side, the maturation of Jake Virtanen, and more. But beyond Canucks talk, they also get into OHL’s hazing controversy, and what it reveals about labour needs and unionization in the CHL — and an article of Jackson’s that was read on the floor of Ontario’s provincial parliament.

Episode 166: Back in the Saddle (with Nick Dika)

This week on the show that's back from the dead, Justin lays out his vision of the future of the show and hopes that you'll stick around to see it through with him. The show comes back in earnest next week, but in the meantime, there's already an example of what an RGS episode with Justin flying solo with guest sounds like. Chances are, you just haven't heard it…

Episode 164: Home Alone

This week on the show that needs something to blame after last year, John is away watching the Leafs home opener, so Stefan and Justin fly solo and go heavy on Canucks content right before the 2018/19 NHL season kicks off. And why not when they’ve given us so much to talk about: on banning Fortnite, Bo Horvat’s political machinations, the case for playing skill guys, and Stefan’s #IgnoreTheLottery campaign. PLUS: The Gritty backlash has arrived! Kawhi Leonard’s weird laugh! Predicting the NHL season! And what it would take for us to finally stop cheering for the Canucks.

Episode 163: The Chip & Dip Blip

This week on the show that f***ing was terrible today, the Real Good Boys are back giving the people more of what they want: in-depth food discussions. It’s snacking season, baby! No better way to enjoy the NFL season than with some quality chips and dip. But which chips are best? And John comes out swinging against dip in general. PLUS: Stefan buys the world’s worst bag of chips. And Justin waxes nostalgic about the authentic Mexican cuisine of Blaine, Washington.

Episode 162: We're A Team

This week on the show that needs to negotiate here because we're workin' too, it's a sports-heavy show as there are so many things to dive into this week: Vontae Davis retires from the NFL in the middle of a game, the Vancouver Canucks consider banning video games on the road, and Pierre Dorion stares into the abyss that is the future of the Ottawa Senators. PLUS: Speaking of video games, we go deep on games we expect to see on the PlayStation Classic and N64 Classic.

Episode 161: The Italian Beef Beef

This week on the show that thinks pressure is millions of parents with no money to buy food for their children, we’re beefin’ ‘bout that beef, baby! Justin returns from Chicago to defend his food choices and go all in on the merits of Italian Beef, raising his fist in solidarity with his Italian Beef brothers held down by a sandwich society that fears what it doesn’t understand. Stefan continues to collect royalties on the sale of Hydro Flasks. PLUS: Earbuds vs Airpods! Super Smash Bros! And we pitch our own Food Network original series.

Episode 160: No J-Mo, Mo' Problems (with Chris James)

This week on the show that's heard the Canadian Minister of Defence believes in aliens, Justin Morissette misses his first episode of all-time, so Stefan and John run amok like kids in a candy shop, with the help of their favorite ne'er do-well, CHRIS JAMES. PLUS: Stefan Auto-Tunes the pod! Justin's Chicago meal choices! And the boys finally answer the question that's been plaguing the pod for years: who's got the best hog in Vancouver sports history?

Episode 159: Quick Tide

This week on the show that never pulled a hammy running across Normandy, Justin's streak of appearing on every episode of the show is set to end next week and the boys grill him on his vacation plans like one of them Chicago-style hotdogs. PLUS: Stefan has an impossible time guessing the towns that have WHL teams! We learn empathy for each other via Freaky Friday-esque body-swap scenarios! And which limbs we'd be willing to amputate for gold.

Episode 158: The Cincinnati Open

This week on the show that is just, uhhhh, ok, the Real Good Boys are still stuck for what to talk about, so they take a deep-dive on the topics you're dying to know about, like the world of McDonaldland and how much money they'd accept to make their internet search histories public. PLUS: Brief Canucks talk! Movies that get adapted into video games! And the boys finally reveal what they would do with all the hats if they scored an NHL hat trick.
