Christmas should be about getting drunk and stoned with the people you love, but we all know how fucking stressful the holidays can get!
In the coming weeks, Julian will be mixing himself a Christmastime rum and coke and answering your questions about the holidays – don’t know how to cook a fucking turkey? Mother-in-law a total bitch? Spent all your gift money on liquor?
Write your Christmas holiday questions to Dear Julian in the comment section below and let your stress melt away! Or don’t, he really doesn’t give a fuck.
Even though it’s simply three drunk and stoned idiots talking shit, a lot work goes into the production of the podcast. Usually, it’s broadcasted from the comforts of Ricky’s kitchen, but in order to stick to a schedule (and keep Julian’s greasy sponsors happy), the Boys don’t let their busy touring schedule get in the way. They’ve podcasted from such far-flung places as Central Park in New York City, Hollywood, and fuckin’ Finland!
“We thought we were fucked to begin with,” says Preston. “Normally you secure the proper paperwork for that kind of thing, but we didn’t have the time, so we just went for it. Bright lights, a camera crew, open liquor, and Bubbles calling out to people he thought were Conan O’Brien. The Boys are used to jail, I’m not, I thought we were fucked.”
Thankfully, they made it to a place where everybody knows your name before Boston’s finest showed up.
Highs and Lows
Sometimes, the Boys travel to places where the cops just don’t give a fuck.
“Oh man, the giggle fit inAmsterdam,” recalls Chipper. “We were all so high and in the perfect mood. When Ricky started talking about the goddamn swans we all lost our shit. What you saw on camera was all real reactionary laughter. They even called me out because I couldn’t stop fuckin’ laughing off camera.”
The Boys agree — on the one-year anniversary podcast, they declared the Amsterdam episode to be the highest they’ve ever been on the podcash.
Vincent van Go Fuck Yourself
But it’s not all dope and cops — the Podcast is also an opportunity for the Boys to display their many talents.
“Anytime Ricky draws or paints is the best,” says Hannah. “There was one episode when Ricky started talking about ‘Vincent van GoPro’ and got all confused about exactly which body part he cut off, it was some weird shit.”
Ricky is not just a whiz with the paintbrush, he’s also a decent fucking chef. Or at least, he thinks so.
“I liked Ricky’s Choco-bananee-salmoken recipe, I’d like to see him make that on Master Chef,” says Tiggy. “But perhaps not his version of turducken, that was fucked.”
Podcasting Is a Safety Hazard
Though it’s been an extremely successful inaugural year of theTrailer Park Boys Podcast, it hasn’t come without its bumps and bruises.
Ricky nearly burned the studio down while trying to celebrate the one-year borntday, but that is just one slice of the danger-pepperoni. In fact, Ricky is lucky to have survived this year.
With all this momentum behind them, even the strongest shit winds can’t slow down the Trailer Park BoysPodcast. Be sure to tune into year two of this cockery!
