Podcast 5 Season 2 Special TV Edition

SCTV Syndicated Intro
"Tired of ordinary television?"

In this (mostly) television-related episode Jeff and Will are joined by the Shelf’s resident TV dorks Kathleen Corrigan and Ian MacIntyre, as well as TV critic Kat Angus of’s excellent TV Casualty Podcast. The group discusses their favourite returning shows, shows they are looking forward to in 2011, the state of television in Canada, and even find time to challenge one another to ridiculously obscure TV trivia. TV! TV! TV!

The show was recorded live at the Artful Dodger Pub in Toronto, so apologies in advance for the minor background noise.
