Bruce McDonald is a filmmaker whose movies include Hardcore Logo, Highway 61 and Roadkill. His newest movie, Weirdos, will be in select theatres across Canada this spring.

PJ Vogt hosts a podcast called Reply All. In one episode, he micro doses on LSD at work and in another he explores One Direction conspiracy theories.

Whether he's talking about a book that changed his life or just his favourite brand of chips, author Pasha Malla approaches subjects with deep thought and insight. So we invited him on the show to talk about some of the stuff he's been into lately. Here are his picks:

 

  • The novel After James by Michael Helm.
  • Living Hour, a psychedelic band from Winnipeg and their song "Seagull."
  • The band Fake Palms from Toronto. Pasha picks the song "Melatonin."
  • The face of basketball player Andrew Wiggins, who plays for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
