Dropbear and Panda Save the World is a weekly podcast about world news and events from our uniquely Canadian, comedic, and satirical point-of-view.

We rely heavily on bad humour, equally bad language, and fact-checking done by our assistant OK GOOGLE (she even has her own mic). We're not reporters but rather 'experiential journalists'.

Dropbear and Panda also produce no-budget short films, kick-ass music videos, original plays, and this show. You can see all our weirdness on our website www.DropbearAndPanda.tv

Can we agree that the Eighties were a weird time all around? It's cool to see some things are coming back into vogue like solid punk, thrash, and the band Suicidal Tendencies, but lets hope neon stays where it belongs. 

In this episode we get into it over both awesome and awful music videos, NAFTA, our world filled with earthquakes, losing fingers on waterslides, Dax Shepard, and video games. Somehow we come out the other side having saved the world yet again.
