Carpenters and craft, friendship and rivalry: Wally is building a mansion for a dot-com multimillionaire in the Silicon Valley of California. As the dot-com's stock keeps rising, the size of the house - and the owner's ego - keep growing. Wally and his colorful crew may be into something that's over their heads. When little guys work for bigshots, who gets nailed? From bungling to burglary, from demolishing concrete to racing beltsanders, from love of tools to falling in love, everyone will encounter Wally's Laws of Construction - or are they Laws of Life? Each house, it seems, is a miracle. Joe Cottonwood is a contractor in the Silicon Valley of California where he has been building houses - and fixing homes - for over 30 years. He is the author of FAMOUS POTATOES and other novels.
DIRTY SONS OF PITCHES
Every week, Nate and Ben, with the occasional special guest, talk movies and then play a series of movie-related games, including the central game, The Pitch, wherein our heroes take a concept and try and turn it into a working movie. Most of the time the podcasts will just descend into girlish laughter. Other reoccurring games include Defend Yourself, where one person must defend their enjoyment of an indefensible movie, Sequel-ize It, Porno-ize It, Recast It, Genre Swap, Adapt the Unadaptable, Disney-fy-It, and Vanity Project, wherein our heroes tailor a movie project to a star.

ONTARIO ARTS COUNCIL | CONSEIL DES ARTS DE L'ONTARIO
When it first launched, the Ontario Arts Council (OAC) podcast channel offered a new way to share information about OAC granting programs. Now it also provides a vehicle for sharing stories from OAC-funded artists, educators, arts administrators and community leaders about their work. These stories may inspire others, demonstrate the impact of the work or simply provide clear examples of how work can be supported. OAC was established in 1963 with a mandate to foster the creation and production of art for the benefit of all Ontarians. OAC is an arm’s-length agency of Ontario’s Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport. For more information about OAC, visit the website at www.arts.on.ca ----- Lors de son lancement, la chaîne de balados du Conseil des arts de l’Ontario (CAO) représentait une nouvelle façon de partager l'information sur les programmes de subventions du CAO. Maintenant elle permet aussi aux artistes, éducateurs, administrateurs des arts et dirigeants communautaires subventionnés par le CAO de parler de leur travail. Leurs réflexions peuvent inspirer d'autres personnes, démontrer l'impact du travail accompli ou encore illustrer clairement la façon de soutenir le travail. Créé en 1963, le CAO a pour mission de favoriser la création et la production artistique au profit de tous les Ontariens. Le CAO est un organisme indépendant du ministère du Tourisme, de la Culture et du Sport. Pour de plus amples renseignements sur le CAO, visitez le site www.arts.on.ca.
