The Rush Podcast
After taking most of the summer off from recording, Christian Zyp and I are back with another instalment of your favourite pop-culture connection podcast, NewbsRadio. This time, we’re talking Canadian Rock Legends, Rush. And of course when you’re talking about Rush, you’re going to Rush off on all sorts of cosmic/nautical tangents and in this episode we end up talking about the flop that was Episode I: The Phantom Menace AND the flop that is Sinbad, the comic – not the sailor. How do all these things rush? Well we needed some help from some ringers so we were happy to invite the creators of the NBC/TNT TV show, The Pretender, to help us along in our journey. Steven Long Mitchell and Craig W. Van Sickle ended up giving us a lot to rush on and then just for good measure we ended up getting a local Edmontonian with a valuable tendency in the early 80s of being on set during the filming of the Canadian sketch comedy program, SCTV. The best part about the Rush episode is, we didn’t Rush to get it out. So be prepared for slick references from April 2014, heh heh.
Next time we’re going to be talking about Oasis and Milli Vanilli with 33 1/3 author all the way from London, Alex Niven. Until then, take care!
