In the news, the guys talk about how to prepare for a zombie invasion on October 31st. They also talk about the UWO police brutality video that was making the rounds on the internet and what it means for UWO. Entertainment has another Brit pop single from Jackie, Stephen Harper coming from YouTube and a Worst of Music that is close to home. This week’s sports is the return of Oddsmakers to The Lowdown. It’s an instant classic episode that is among the best of the show’s history.
