The U of WO is back in session and so is The Lowdown for 2010. As is the custom for the first episode of the new year, tonight’s episode was the year in review show. The show starts with a review of what happened in 2009 and predictions for 2010. One thing that doesn’t change in 2010 is that the news is about sex. Entertainment includes Jackie’s look at 2010 TV debuts as well as an Australian single and a unique It Came From YouTube. The show ends with the third annual Lowdown awards celebrating the great, the good, and the rubbish of 2009.
On the Extra, there are more stories analyzed from the past 12 months, more predictions, and more awards. The news includes two more stories about a dumb reason for being fired and attack monkeys. The Black Eyed Peas earn the first Worst of Music award of 2010. There’s also lots of added banter over the course of the show that had to be cut from the radio version. There’s an additional 56 minutes in this edition of the Extra to make it 1:24:36 long. That’s three times the length of a radio cut of the show and the longest episode of The Lowdown Extra ever. It is also the longest podcast ever produced by a UWO-related talk show. As always, the action comes to you uncut and uncensored.
