The weekly musings of Dropbear and Panda (and resident fact-checker OKAY GOOGLE). Dropbear and Panda Save the World is a uniquely Canadian take on world news and events. There's usually some cursing and a lot of laughter.
Crossing Swords With Nobody Episode
We've got two reviews today - and we’re not angry with one, per se… just disappointed. Which (if we take any cue from our parents) is worse than being mad. Much, much worse.
A man from Italy finally gets busted after skipping work for 15 years, Panda tests her taste buds by doing the ol’ orange juice & toothpaste trick, and we celebrate Calgary’s Centre for Newcomers for all the good they do.
Slap Your Chicken Episode
The most important question we have to ask ourselves - Is Panda’s no taste and smell strong enough to withstand a chicken cooked by a robotic slapping machine?
Our podcast isn’t just about the science of slapping chickens this week; we also talk about DMX and Prince Philip, agonize over Eivor’s bird-eyes in AC Valhalla, and vow to send a Sock Rocket package to The Good Neighbour Project.
Peep Into the Bigfoot Family War Room Episode
We review Bigfoot Family: the most controversial, dangerous movie ever to grace our Albertan television screens. Never before have we witnessed anything so…. Wait, is that a jive-talking raccoon??
Even more perplexing than magical Bigfoot offspring, is marshmallow-flavoured Pepsi. What is this world coming to?! Thank goodness we have a new Sock Jingle, and wonderful people like Judy Obregone of Abandoned Ones Animal Rescue. We salute you, Judy.
The Capo-no-you-d'int Episode
Thanks (?) to our knack for reviewing bad movies, we were asked to review “CAPONE”… and boy, was it ever… a thing... that we did. Sort of.
The Alberta War Room attacks an animated film for children, we praise two gentlemen in Fukushima who care for pets left behind, and we have a new sock jingle! Plus, Dropbear tries the “Burnt Orange” trick to bring Panda’s taste and smell back the only way he knows how - disastrously.
The Seven Footer Episode
We’re recording at Kensington Studio this weekend but we can’t seem to escape the snowblowers outside. We think they’re stalking us. Send help. Or…. less snow.
Filming commercials in the time of Covid, sharks with feet are keeping Australia on their toes, Netflix has some hits and misses when it comes to Reality TV, and a tiny Koala gets a new lease on life thanks to... a Dentist??!?
The Covid Exploded Episode
We’re back after 4 weeks off - but THE SHOW MUST GO ON - albeit a little short of breath, but un-isolated this time, and just in time to completely ignore Valentines Day.
We discuss how Panda’s Covid prognosis quickly went downhill, plus Gorilla Glue hairdos and toothpaste mohawks, how to escape deserted islands with or without a TV crew, and we think back to those who saved our world over the last month. We appreciate all of you.
Newsworthy... and yet, I can't stop laughing!
No other podcast will cover so many timely and hilarious topics with quirkinesses and fun! Love it!
Witty banter for days
Great local talent discussing their takes on current events, pop culture and the occasional paralyzing fear of sharks :) all in an effort to save the world
