Ben was given full reign to make up this entire episode, from research to writing and the theme. He thought long and hard about topics and how the episode should flow and came up with an idea – Twitter Comedy!
…Then he had an epiphany (appiphany?)
Instead of asking people on Twitter, he did various searches on Twitter, polling people’s thoughts and ideas to discuss with Ben. We go from talking about weird inventions, movie ideas, app ideas, childhood memories to weird tweets about the number 22 (this episode number) and everything you could ever think about being Canadian.
Ben calls this segment and new approach to content, Ben Takes to Twitter. Who knows, if it is popular he might make it a recurring segment of all future episodes.
Warning – the discussions go in rapid fire, and they get pretty silly.
