  • 2007 Aubrey Graham Interview -- the Early Drake Years

    Posted on 01/21/2011 by Mary

    Before he was Drake, he was Degrassi's Jimmy. And right after he put the finishing touches on the Comeback Season mixtape, he gave us one of his trademark super-candid interviews about... everything. Uh, his days of wearing Lady Speed Stick, why he's not interested in a "yes man", and the REAL reason he never answers his phone.

    Aubs, we miss you to death, and we remain prouder than peacocks of your ongoing world domination. Couldn't happen to a better guy.

  • Classic Adamo Ruggiero (Marco!) Phone Call

    Posted on 01/20/2011 by Mary

    I love re-listening to this old podcast interview with Adamo because he talks about what good roommates he and Lauren Collins (Paige) would make, and here in the future we happen to know that they ended up living together for a long time. Maybe they still do? I'll tweet them and ask.

    Also there are too many good pics of Adamo; I kind of went overboard. Sorrry!

    Remember when we called up Shenae Grimes and asked her about the scene where Peter grabs her buttock? If not, you're in for a treat.

    Those episodes will be re-airing this Saturday as the Degrassi Every Episode Ever marathon continues!

  • Mike Lobel (aka Jay) Podcast Interview

    Posted on 01/18/2011 by Mary

    Sometimes I forget how evil Jay was when he first showed up on Degrassi, but Mike Lobel (who played him) has never been evil ever. If you've ever wondered what it's like to hop on the phone with him and have a lickle chit chat, this podcast call we did with him back in the day is pretty indicative:

  • This week's Classic Degrassi Goodies: Podcasts!

    Posted on 01/17/2011 by Mary

    While Every Degrassi Ever keeps dominating your weekends, we dug into our Classic Degrassi Goodies barrel and pulled out... golden oldie podcast interviews! Back in the day, we'd call Degrassi stars like Lauren Collins up, and she'd tell us stories about blackouts at insane promo shoots. Like so:

    This is the first of five classic podcast interviews we'll be posting all week; keep checking back! (Sorry they're in video format, long story... but I chucked up a bunch of gorgeous Paige pics to make up for the static "video.")
