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. PLUS: The Canucks pick 7th! The Leafs get eliminated from the postseason! John plays a gig in a small town! Trading our bad habits! And the boys issue a formal apology for their draft lottery stream.

Episode 140: Baby D's Home

This week on the show that walked half a mile out of its way to sort that out, we flip the script on our hockey talk this season and spend some time examining John's sports pain as the Leafs find themselves in a playoff hole, measuring media narratives against reality. PLUS: Steve Simmons doubles down! The RGS Raiders get off to a rollicking start! Justin angles for a role in the next Fast & Furious! And we take up Stefan's favourite pastime: making fun of businesses on Broadway in Vancouver.

Episode 139: Five Skins

This week on the show that will make you scream "Mamma Mia!", the Real Good Boys take one last look at the Sedins' retirement and the Canucks exit meetings, make their NHL playoff predictions, and take a few prominent Canadian media members to the woodshed. PLUS: We've got a new Little League team, the RGS Raiders! Celebrity birthdays! Cooking up BBQ! We score a walk-off interview with a shocked and defeated Chris James! And we finally get another inside scoop on a sports player's balls!

Episode 91: Poker Mom Monster (with Devin Mackenzie)

This week on the show that doesn't know how you cheer for a guy like that, actor / writer / improviser DEVIN MACKENZIE of HIP.BANG and BLIND TIGER joins the Real Good Boys to discuss the futility of being good in the era of Curry and LeBron, his worst sports injury, and the doting fans of Dr. Indiana Jones. PLUS: John is tired! Stefan is wired! Justin expired! The one thing you're better at than every NHLer! And we reveal the prizes for the winners of the RGS Fan Art contest.

Episode 88: Gord Save The Queen

This week on the show that's taking that for data, mixed emotions abound for the Real Good Boys, as the Leafs have yet to be eliminated but John's already pre-emptively cool with it if they get knocked out (Ron Howard voice: "They're out."), while Justin's still salty about trading away Zack Kassian and Stefan is about as apathetic and tapped out as he's ever been. I also coulda sworn we talked about Tryamkin, but that must have been before we were recording. Whoops! PLUS: Kevin Costner's Waterworld! Breaking in to concerts! Justin Bieber! And being on the ice with the Queen. What do you mean?

Episode 87: All-In Leaves (with Jon Gallant)

This week on the show that keeps coming and coming and coming, BILLY TALENT bassist JON GALLANT joins the Real Good Boys in the immediate aftermath and elation of Leafs/Caps Game 3 to discuss his friendships with Maple Leafs players over the years, breaking the Toronto sports curse, the Dart Guy phenomenon, and the relationship between his sports pain and his music. PLUS: Justin plots a tent city protest against the Canucks, while Stefan has some questions about penguin biology for Professor Cullen.

Episode 86: Team Goat Willie

This week on the show that won't go to North Korea, we've all got our reasons to be happy: the Leafs are in the playoffs, and the Canucks have fired head coach Willie Desjardins. We happily bury the coach who gave our show its name, and sort out why Leafs fans would have been mad if their team didn't make it in. PLUS: Judging the accuracy of Vancouver video game levels, predicting the big stories of two months from now, a Twilight Zone-esque bargain to get rid of Linden and Benning, and everyone's favourite game: What's The Weather? RIP Willie, gone but never forgotten.
