    "Monopoly". It's all come down to this moment. Hosts past and present sit down for the dusting off of a collective memory so painful, it could only be used for our final (for now) episode. Tune in for the war to end all wars! Listen to the episode.

  • 048 – “Some More Of That D”

    "EuroTrip" (2004) teen comedy. It's a bingo card of lazy European stereotypes this episode, as Steph, Em, and Norah wade through Matt Damon's breakup revenge fantasy. One of our hosts discovers white wine, another recedes into dark memories of 13-year-old girl-dom, and yet one more just really, really wants every character in the movie to fail. Tune in to hear Emily's very special connection to this "Rube Goldberg of plots", and the hosts' fondness for "not telling Scotty things". Listen to the episode.

    "Childhood crushes." In a Dust Off first, the girls take a look back at their childhood celebrity crushes. A cartoon Canuck, an ABC family-comedy Bad Boy, and a certain heartthrob who’s name may or may not rhyme with Boney Stanza make up the bunch, and needless to say things in this episode get a little weird. Tune in! Listen to the episode.

    “Carmen Electra’s Fit to Strip” (2004). The Dust Off crew decided to tackle the classic New Years ‘Get Fit’ resolution the only logical way – By diving into Carmen Electra’s Strippercize series. Yes, this is the second strip-centric workout video that Carmen Electra released. Yes, there is a hip hop segment. But there is also Listen to the episode.

    “To Grandmother’s House We Go” (1992). Hark! Is that the cackling of little elves I hear? Why no, it’s the Olsen twins! Emily and Norah (sadly Steph has been struck down by the flu) tackle the first film to feature everyone’s favourite freckle-faced duo. It’s festive fun for the whole family! Also, I can’t stop using alliteration! Tune in! Listen to the episode.

  • 044 – “Slightly Better Than Silence”

    “Twister” (1996). Warning! Make sure you listen to this episode locked in a basement full of canned goods… Our three brave hosts become bona fide tornado experts as they relive they dodge razor sharp Pepsi cans and try to decipher Cary Elwes’ accent in the 1996 disaster film, Twister.
