65: The F Word (What If...) with Hadiya Roderique
This week, we debate a tale as old as "When Harry Met Sally" - how can men and women be friends when there's chemistry involved. Brilliant multi-hyphenate achiever and co-host of Canadaland's Commons Podcast Hadiya (Dee) Roderique brings us the 2013 quirky rom-com The F Word (released in the States as What if...) We get confrontational this week, with mature discussions on sex, relationships, chemistry, and comedy, without getting too shouty (Okay, Becky does crack her knuckles once). We get into what banter between characters works, how to effectively use side characters, and the pleasures of tight edits. Get ready to play "Find the CN Tower " with The F Word, available on iTunes or on the disc format of your choice.
This week's end credit music is Beach Bummer by AC Newman. AC Newman is a Canadian Singer-Songwriter and his stuff is great, anthemic and totally sing-a-longable. He's also a member of the New Pornographers - and they're great too. Check out AC's work at his website.
