Well, I somehow missed last month's update. My aim for monthly posts here has become somewhat lax in 2020. I blame the pandemic.
I was very busy with producing content over the past two months, with a big focus on our Halloween show. With Halloween being on a Saturday this year, it would fall on an actual show date. Both Aalia and I are big fans of Halloween and I wanted to do something big this year that included the entire Global News Weekend team.
We're all big fans of the TV show Parks and Recreation, so I wrote a scene that imagined what would happen if the characters in Parks and Recreation worked on our show:
It turned out really well and everyone did a great job with their roles (even if some took to it grudgingly). The musical part at the end was supposed to be longer until I realized none of us can actually sing and my guitar playing wasn't as good as I'd hoped.
Aalia and I also dressed up as Carole Baskin and Joe Exotic from Tiger King.
It wouldn’t be a 2020 Halloween on Global News Weekend without an appearance by Carole Baskin and the Tiger King himself, Joe Exotic @Aalia_Adam pic.twitter.com/2KnyeUm5zg— Mike Arsenault (@MikeGArsenault) October 31, 2020
For some non-Halloween content, the October episode of The Training Ground featured Canadian country music stars, The Reklaws.
Thanks for reading and watching!
