The Academy Awards are on Sunday so on this episode of The F Words – we’re talking all about the biggest night in movies. In an effort to speed up the show, it was announced some categories like cinematography and editing would be given out during the commercial breaks. After we recorded this podcast, the Academy decided to reverse its decision.  We discuss if what they had originally planned was fair, and also how the show will be without a host for the first time in 30 years.  And our love of A Star is Born continues as we try and figure out what went wrong for Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper during Awards Season. Take a listen and let us know… will you be watching on Sunday and if so who are you rooting?

With Valentine’s Day coming up, we’re getting extra romantic on this episode of The F Words with a spirited debate (ahem…Natasha and Anthony) about binge-watching! Many of us binge shows with our partners and studies suggest watching together can bring you closer, creating a stronger connection and a feeling of belonging. Watching a show that your partner wants to watch is a simple way to show that you care…but it’s not always that easy.  Disagreements or fights can easily arise while bingeing your favourite show. Listen and tell us your experiences binge-watching with a loved one.

Recently movie star Chris Pratt got engaged to girlfriend Katherine Schwarzenegger, and just as the news was being announced publicly, Chris called his ex-wife Anna Faris to let her know. Anna posted a congratulatory message on Chris’ social media and seemed generally happy for him.  So, is there a specific ex etiquette we should all be following? This week on The F Words relationship and love expert Jen Kirsch joins us to talk about the do’s and don’ts of being an ex.  Listen and tell us what you think!

Over the past month the #10YearChallenge has taken the internet by storm with everyone from your friends, to celebrities, and even world leaders jumping on the bandwagon (except for Anthony of course), but do you ever think twice before posting?  Tech writer Kate O’Neill raised some alarm bells recently suggesting the challenge was a way for companies to collect data for facial recognition algorithms.  Popsugar’s popular twinning app that went viral during the holidays was reportedly collecting everyone’s photos. Sharing something fun on social media isn’t something we’d normally think too much about…but maybe it should be.  

Listen and tell us what you think!

Health Canada released its new food guide to help provide up-to-date information to Canadians about healthy eating choices and to make sure the guide is aligned with the current evidence on food topics.  Natasha and Anthony are vegetarians as is Taylor's husband Greg. Taylor is the odd person out. However she does do 3 meatless dishes or more a week. 

Are you incorporating more plant based meals in your home? Is the food guide going to change your eating habits?

Happy New Year! It’s officially 2019 and with the holidays wrapping up it’s time to get back to reality…including paying off those bills and figuring out how to save for the year ahead.  A new survey put out by the Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada says that Canadians have mixed feelings about their financial situation in 2019.  41% of people surveyed said their financial situation will improve over the next year, while 45% think it will remain unchanged and 11% say things will get worse for them. This week on the podcast we welcome Doretta Thompson, Director of Corporate Citizenship for CPA Canada who breaks down this survey and offers tips and advice.

 

Listen and tell us how you feel about your financial situation going into 2019.

With 2018 coming to a close, it’s the perfect time for all of us to reflect on we’re grateful for. It’s also a good opportunity to start the new year by keeping a gratitude journal. Oprah has kept a journal for years and says she’s felt most happy when she keeps up with the practice of writing in it daily.  This week we discuss the greatest rewards that come from having a gratitude journal and Anthony refuses to even think about ever using one.  Listen and let us know if you keep one or will be starting to write in one in 2019!

Have you ever thanked yourself for what you've done in your life? Snoop dog recently was awarded a star on the Walk of Fame and on his lists of "thank yous" he thanked himself. Would you expect anything else from Snoop Dog? However, maybe he's on to something. Why are we not thanking ourselves. Who got you the job? Who gave birth to that baby? Who gets up everyday and works out? The list could go on. This week we want you to thank yourself for something! Listen to the crew and let us know what you're thankful for!

How Important is music in movies? It sets the vibe it brings out emotion. This year Natasha's team has teamed up with Live Nation and they are all things music! We broadcast live from Live Nations HQ in Toronto from the IT House and talk to Joely Scoleri from Live Nation. ( PS Anthony kinda fangurls over Joey because he was a DJ back in the day on the largest rock station in Canada)

What is your favorite movie soundtrack?
