Episode 179: So Tight, Like A Playoff Game (with Mike Martignago)

This week on the show here to talk about Bose Horvats and Brock Bozo, former Vancouver sports radio producer / host turned international man of mystery MIKE MARTIGNAGO joins the program for an update on what he’s been up to since going off the grid, the grind of trying to live the dream, Francesco Aquilini’s Twitter, Trevor Linden’s redemption, John Weisbrod’s bizarre resumé, the ongoing scandals surrounding Whitecaps FC, a spirited debate on whether sports newsroom employees are allowed to feel joy over positive results, and an inside scoop on Kawhi’s off-season plans.

Episode 172: Defending Your Life (with J.D. Burke)

This week on the show that might waive, but then again might not, J.D. BURKE of The Athletic Vancouver stops by the show for a lengthy discussion on where the Canucks are at after the midway point of the season, what they should do about Alex Edler as trade deadline approaches, and how the Edler conversation is over-shadowing some more important decisions the team needs to make either at the deadline or during the off-season. PLUS: Why everyone hates J.D., and getting real about the lifestyle of those trying to break into the current sports media landscape.

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 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.

Episode 155: He Thinks My Tractor's Pricy

This week on the show that’s just gonna bypass that question because improvement will lead to success, John returns to the show fresh off his successful stint at JFL performing as his beloved Southern Momma character and he's full of fire and rage as two of the most contentious debates in RGS history break out over... (checks notes) Troy Stecher and salad. PLUS: Trevor Linden leaves the Canucks! We debate the ceiling of Elias Pettersson! Jim Harbaugh thinks eating chicken gives you brain diseases! New holiday mascots! And Justin comes out swinging against The Office.

Episode 151: Roussel Madness (with Jackson Playfair)

This week on the show that knows car and cat are only separated by one letter (isn't that neat?), Dalhousie Tigers forward and former WHL beauty JACKSON PLAYFAIR returns to the show for an in-studio hockey spectacular. John is over the moon with the Leafs signing John Tavares, while Stefan wallows in self-pity and Justin finds glimmers of hope in the Canucks' discouraging free agent crop. PLUS: Our Auston Insider reveals what the Leafs moves mean for Matthews, forecasts his dad's future in the game, and goes deep on the one feud that may have ended with Playfair jerseys in the firepit. We talked hockey with Jackson for 100 minutes and could have gone 300 more.

Episode 142: A Damn Delight (with David "The Coffee Boss" Booker)

This week on the show that lets the tank get down to halfway and then puts 20 bucks in, the Real Good Boys are all back in the studio and joined by David "The Coffee Boss" Booker to discuss MMA mishaps, fighting in Alaska, and how he got his nickname.

And the boys issue a formal apology for their draft lottery stream.

Episode 138: Poop Funeral

This week on the show that ain't gettin' this one, boys, we prepare ourselves to say goodbye to Henrik and Daniel Sedin, as the twins who have embodied Vancouver hockey for nearly 20 years prepare to hang up the skates for good. PLUS: Budgeting out the cost of a human litter box! Turtle sandbox! And we get to the bottom of the bad American pronunciations of "decal", "pasta" and "about".

Episode 133: Better Off Deadline

This week on the show that can barely read, mate, the Real Good Boys get back to their roots with some hardcore, post-Trade Deadline discussion/depression about the Canucks. John moderates a discussion of the team's direction with Stefan and Justin, who grow increasingly despaired and try to decide if the Canucks will win a Cup while any of us are alive. PLUS: Roger Ebert! Building a statue of ourselves! Action figures! And the return of Steven Adams to Clip of the Week!

Episode 108: Branch Number

This week on the show that didn't swear, we swear, the Real Good Boys take a trip to Easy Question City and pop in our official tennis players, Nick Kyrgios and Genie Bouchard (while keeping tabs on the emergent El Shapo). PLUS: No reason to Vanek, as the Canucks sign the aging winger to a modest deal. John tries to coax out Stefan's banking info!
