Ify Chiwetelu is a our guest for this live podcast recorded at Wee Johnny's. Our modest crowd was an absolute delight. We got off to a terrible start with Tim couldn't even attempt to say Ify's last name. But, as she said to Dana, "you gotta pick your battles." We start with some fun riffing and introductions, talk about giggle and dancing fits, home births, Winnipeg secrets and table linen.
In our 'Choose Your Own Adventure' section Ify gets magically transported from the Winnipeg airport to Winnipeg's own 'The Forks' where she meets R.L. Stine, eats a bunch of pancakes and sleeps through an unimaginable adventure. It ends with Ify making sweet, sweet love to R.L. Stine in the White House while president Pancakes strengthens diplomatic ties.
In our Two Truths and a Lie game the HUNKS crew have to determine whether Ify had braces for 7 years, is Muslim or has never seen Star Wars is a lie. It spins into some pretty heavy handed discussions about Star Wars and brief religion talks.
Now or Never airs on CBC Radio One's every Thursday at 2PM and Saturdays at 3PM. Also, look out for Season 2 of Baroness Von Sketch Show to see some of Ify's comedy writing.
