    Big thanks to Critical Hit Show DM Eric Fell for his dramatic reading of listener mail!

    • Lea

      The dramatic reading was hilarious. Well played, Joe.

        I just posted an identity-hidden screen cap to social media. The reading was all Eric Fell!

        Except the “Hah, I’m totally putting this in today’s episode!” part. That was me.

    Great two-parter guys, but I was sad that you missed a pretty classic example of a Weird War …. The 1932 Emu War

      In facet we had that in the notes when we started researching, but by the time we got to record we’d taken it out because it didn’t quite fit the topic of ‘war’ (despite the name of the Emu War”

  • Allan Newell

    Best easter egg so far! Thank you Mr. Fell!

    The hot dog and doughnut stand hats were supposed to be green.

  • Ermine

    Bahahaha! Loved that reading by Eric Fell at the end. Well played.

    I love Canadian Bacon, despite being European! Admittedly, I was introduced to it by the teacher of my Canadian History class.

    I’d like to request more of Toren’s Morgan Freeman impression. And more about Joe’s sex life. SEX!

    SEX!

  • Miss Felis

    You guys had me cackling with these two episodes 🙂

    P.S. Let’s hear more about the SEX STUFF!

    I thought Karel Capek’s name sounded familiar. He coined the term ‘robot’.

    Cheery fellow: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karel_%C4%8Capek

    Also, I found a free ebook copy of the War With The Newts: https://ebooks.adelaide.edu.au/c/capek/karel/newts/

    About Iron Sky, I don’t know if I saw a different edit to the one you did, Joe, but for me it started off with a Sarah Palin-esque US president on an exercise machine trying to figure out how to get re-elected, and coming up with the idea of sending people to the moon again. But she couldn’t send just any old astronauts, so she picked some models or sports people, hence the black guy. There’s a sequel coming in the next few years too – with dinosaurs.

    Great Morgan Freeman voice too, Toren, I had no idea what you were saying I was so distracted by how uncanny it was that I had to listen to the section again. 🙂

    I still have images of Brian Blessed with a golden winged helmet wandering through my head. +1 for the Easter Egg.

    Thank you guys so much for the dramatic reading of my silly email! And thank you Joe for your taking the joke as it wa intended; I love you, and the rest of the cast. You guys just made my year.

    • Joe

      Uh huh.

      • Ty

        Ouch. Okay. Sorry, then. I’ll be on my way.

  • Dakota

    I’m from New Mexico, USA and I know of The Littlest Hobo! My mom listens to another Canadian podcast, Marek vs. Wyshynski, where it was referenced so we ordered the DVD. It’s hilarious, and I think you guys have actually brought it up before…

    LOVE Toren’s Morgan Freeman, btw. Now off to finish the episode!
