Hey, you! Time to crawl out of the rock you’ve been living under and tune into LDU Radio, live every Friday from 11-1:30 with 3 of the funniest people around. Well, one of them doesn’t even go here, but let’s be honest, after seven years, he’s more Western than you are. Nate Black, Jordan Sowunmi and the oh-so-beautiful Megan Mahoney, with her long _CheveuxRoux_ (that means red hair for those of you who didn’t pass grade 9 French) have taken over the airwaves and are here to make you laugh, think and quite possibly cry (because you’re laughing so hard) – and if you’re smart, you will let them.
Talking about everything from pop culture, to student issues, music and all of the crazy things you can find on the world wide web (besides porn), the show really is a can’t miss session of awesome. But what makes the show so much fun to listen to is not just the topics, but the hilarious living room couch dynamic between the hosts that will make you feel right at home. Sowunmi and Black (I tried to sound official, but what I meant to say was “these two goons”) have a reckless and unapologetic chemistry about them, both on and off the airwaves, that is less father-son and more “prenaturally smart younger brother battles slightly oafish older one,” says Sowunmi. Fighting in a way that can only be described as clownish and witty, there’s no denying the two are batting on the same intellectual tongue-in-cheek playing field, and it’s a thrill being in the bleachers.
So be sure to tune in every week to watch two black guys double team a hot white chick
on the radio and get your weekly dose of quick quips and real talk.
For those of you who missed the show,
curse your souls, or those of you who just can’t get enough and want a second listen, we will be airing a podcast every week and posting a cliff’s notes summary with some of the more hilarious highlights.

This explicit video is a must-watch – and as you will hear many times throughout the podcast, Young Jeezy is COMING TO LONDON on April 5th courtesy of the man, Cory Litwin, and you can get your tickets here.
WTF moment of the Week:
Meg: Shared a story about feeding a dog Doritos outside Jacks the night before to ward off his creepy owner
Krystal: Was accosted by a flasher on her way to campus
Nate: Republican John Fleming shared The Onion’s Abortionplex article as fact/Queen’s student breaks into athletic centre to steal barbell and returns to take the chin-up bar as well (was he drunk? or just stupid?)
Jordan: “CAN YOU MAKE THEM WEAR GLOVES WHEN THEY MAKE MY BAGEL?” (Tim Horton’s in the UCC rant) /Meme overdose and the memification of our lives. But really though, whose face hasn’t been memified? We’ve had enough. Hilariously enough, Jordan’s later pick for website of the week is a meme.
