134 - Britney and Liberation w/ Eric Kostiuk Williams
/

I have a particular love of songs about how much it sucks to be famous, and true story was the world’s worst English teacher at a summer camp in China and made a bunch of mystified 12 year olds watch the video for Lucky like four times in a row to do a really bad “fill in the lyrics” worksheet. Sorry, kids! Toronto correspondent and living comics legend Eric Kostiuk Williams (@kostiukwilliams) returns to A&L to discuss the ultimate woman posting her L, Britney’s court statement regarding her legalized criminal conservatorship. We also got a segment we call “Oh Right, What’s Canada’s Doing Aboot That?”, a small gag reflex-like aside on local NY politics, how freakin HOT it is, and of course at least 10 minutes on the impact of Toxic alone. Pop in the ol earbuds, get the sink going, and do your dishes with the gentle banter of your real life friends, Lucia, OK, and Sarah, this week on dragon ball z!
