Shawn and Paul finally meet in real life!
Shawn is from Canada. Paul is from England. They have been podcasting together for over 9 years. They have spoken over Skype and Zoom. However, it was not until this week that the two friends finally met in person. This is the episode where they discuss their history, their visit, and a huge pile of other topics!
Paul, his wife Linda, and their two boys have come to Canada to visit Paul’s aunt. It was 1994 the last time Paul and Linda made the trip. Since the two friends started podcasting they have vowed to one day meet in person. The trip to Canada was Paul’s perfect opportunity to visit Shawn. So, after a week in Toronto, the boys flew home to England and Paul and Linda flew up to Sault Ste. Marie.
Everything is bigger in Canada. The cars are larger. Road lanes are wider. Cheese is in all the foods. There is more land and everything is more spread out. On Paul and Linda’s bucket list was trying a genuine Canadian poutine, which they did. They also enjoyed the beaver tail pastry, Dairy Queen blizzards and Tim Horton’s coffee. Trying to visit the United States also became quite the ordeal.
Shawn and Paul finally meet in real life! However, they have quite the podcasting history. Paul was Shawn’s UK Correspondant on the old Rusted Robot podcast. They then created and co-hosted the Sci-Fi Waffle podcast for 40 episodes. Dan later joined them and they created the Cosmic Pizza podcast and the Epsilon Three podcast.
