    I can’t believe that you did a segment on how fast turtles move without Adam at least mentioning Gamera. 😉

    After some of Cristina’s recent asides I really wish there was a way that she could interview her 20yo self. (Totally unrelated, what’s the e-mail address for parody ideas? :D)

    Thanks again, Cool Canadian Folks.

      Hey Rich! You’re right, re Adam. He must be slippin’ 🙂
      Also, I’m not sure I would enjoy interviewing 20yo me lol.
      We haven’t done a parody in forever. If you have an idea, send it over! – Cristina
