This week’s podcast: a royal pain

I’ve been saying all along that you’d have to pay me to get up in the middle of the night and watch the bloody royal wedding. Well, somebody is doing just that.
The Toronto Star has asked me to “overnight” this William and Kate thing. The story will run in the Saturday Star.
I have a royal hissy fit about it in this week’s radio chat with CHML’s Scott Thompson, but really, hey, a cheque’s a cheque and they always seem to clear at The Star.
Although, here’s the thing, CBC coverage begins at 2 a.m. Bloody Hell.

Scott thinks this is hilarious and wonders why there isn’t a royals reality show. Don’t even joke.
I see where NBC News anchor Brian Williams has ditched the royal shin dig to return home to the States to report on the devastating storms that ripped through the South Thursday. Exactly right. (Besides, the crew from The Today Show, right, will stick around for the royal thingamajig.)
We also talk about Steve Carell’s departure from The Office (tonight at 9 p.m. ET on NBC/Global). Apparently he’s being replaced by Charlie Sheen.
Scott also asks about this new reality talent series The Voice, Katie Couric’s departure from The CBS Evening News, rumours of a new Latino talent search show starring J-Lo and her husband and a bunch of other stuff I don’t care about. You can listen in here.
