Welcome to episode 113 of Erk Pod Maxi, back in the Erk Pod Studio after being on Drue’s couch (episode 111) and at Avoca Beach (episode 112). It’s a lot warmer and nicer in the studio and it feels great to wear cans (headphones) again and get into the Erk Pod mood. Erk and the not-blue anymore co-host Drue are joined by Erk Pod regulars Squeak and Leigh the Voice Over Guy. Later in the episode, we are joined by Orange Tim via Skype. It’s a special Queen’s Birthday edition of Erk Pod.

  1. I grew up Catholic and went to Catholic school for one school year. It does not seem strange to me that the Catholic schools out there are having some of their students “volunteer” for Catholic Youth Month. I think the whole point of Catholic school is “Catholic”, not “school”, and therefore, you end up circumventing curriculum for all sorts of things considered more worthy. My guess is there is some spin going on about how volunteering your time on a good cause is a way to be a good Catholic, or something like that.

    Also, I am following y’all on twitter now, and am greatly amused by your comments to each other :)

    Yay! The Erkpod Bunny is here! :) Awesome.

    I can only go on what I experienced, albeit in the state system. If we were to do the same thing, people would complain for sure. I do wonder how the Catholic school system justified it to their students. After all, they are being big coin to be there! It would probably be extra credit to them or something, who knows.

    Drue, BJ & I are pretty active on Twitter, Squeak has only just got back on and Leigh and Ben are new to it. Imagine when Squeak, Leigh and Ben get up to the level of Erk, Drue & BJ! Glad to see you enjoy following us. ;)

    Bunny rocks!
