Welcome, friends, to the very first Nation Real Life episode of 2019! This week, we recap the Christmas and New Years break, look at the Real Life staff sightings in the wild, Wanye’s adventures in social media, and try to figure out what’s going on with the Edmonton Oilers.
To start off this week’s podcast, the boys look to get back in the swing of things with some hockey talk as they recap Canada’s loss to Finland at the World Juniors and the reaction that followed. Chalmers used this as an opportunity to tell the story of how he took Finland’s late tying goal as a cue to bet on Finland to win the game in OT and it all came as a result of a gut feeling his son had. What other strange betting routines does Chalmers have? Plenty, as it turns out. From there, the boys talk about some real world interactions where they randomly saw each other outside of the podcast setting, including the time Wanye and Chalmers met up at a magic show and Baggedmilk and Wanye chased cabs after an Oilers game. This led into Wanye telling the story of God and how he contacted the almighty to help him with a jerky campaign… alright, spoiler, it was only an Instagram account, but needless to say, the transaction didn’t go as planned. Lastly, the guys couldn’t finish up the week without talking about the Oilers and so they get into the latest news and try to figure out what the hell is going on in Oilersnation.
