Chronic Insomnia – Re-Masterbated Series! Issue # 134 WMD Aprils Fools!

Issue # 134.  Originally Aired March 30th, 2010.

As part of the Re-Masterbated series this is one our brightest moments as a show.  Many of you haven’t heard these shows before and with the remaining time we have left on Podbean you’ll get to hear a few of the shows from our distance and sordid past.  Enjoy!

What would happen if the Chronic Crew took over Where Monsters Dwell for a night?  Find out in this episode, as Mike & Ryan lampoon all the bits, bumps, and hosts of our favorite Canadian pop culture podcast in honor of April Fools!  Opening Night, New Comic Wednesday, and a special interview with the legendary Harvey Fierstein – it’s a time capsule of both shows!

As always, we still love the all of you.

  • · Responses to the deluge of affection we’ve received, and good places to put that affection now that we’ve gone!

And as always I love the all of you. -Michael LaMere (past co-host of Chronic Insomnia)
