It was supposed to be a monumental celebration of epic proportions. March 26, 2020, was supposed to mark the 100th episode of the CGCM Podcast. The Canadian Geeks were stoked to record this historic moment from the tap-house of their newest sponsor, Black Oak Brewing. There was going to be metal! There was going to be cake! Best of all there was going to be BEER!
As preparations for this centennial party were coming together, things were about to change. Like nothing we have ever witnessed, Covid-19 has effectively shut down our entire world. NBA cancelled. NHL cancelled. MLB cancelled. Concert tours and festivals are dropping like flies. Self-Isolation, quarantines and social distancing are the catchphrases for 2020.
CGCM Podcast EP#101 – From Self Isolation
The Canadian Geeks called an emergency teleconference meeting. With the Meister in quarantine, the geeks were unable to even be in the same room together. After much deliberation, our 100th Episode was cancelled.
When we announced this via a Facebook Post we had quite a number of private messages concerned that we were pulling the plug on the show. This was not the case. In fact, quite the opposite. Our conversation actually revolved around how much more important podcasts are at this difficult time. We just decided that we were not willing to compromise our big 100th episode party in any way, shape or form. As a result, we are simply skipping our 100th show. When this mess is over we will circle back and throw the party you would expect from us. Did we mention there would be BEER?
The Show Must Go On! Welcome everyone to the 101st Episode of the Canadian Geeks Chatting Metal Podcast. The Meister and Wallygator deliver their most serious episode yet as they tackle the current world situation. Between the rants, stories and warnings they manage to squeeze in a bunch of great music to help you forget about life for a while. Now does anyone have some extra toilet paper?
