112 – Top 5 Conspiracy Theories

Question everything (even this podcast).

Humans have this undying and relentless need to uncover the truth to things. However, sometimes an answer to a question is not satisfying enough and we are left in this state of “well that’s too simple” or “I don’t buy it”. That’s why we gravitate towards conspiracy theories, as wild as some may be. They contain just enough nuggets of truth in there to make things plausible and their explanation can throw everything back into question on what we know. So join Tuong La and co-conspirators Patricia Eddu, Stefanie McBurns, and Stenley Philippe as they question everything (including themselves) while ranking Top 5 Conspiracy Theories!

111 – Top 5 TV Game Shows

Come on down!
TV Game shows have been around for a very long time. And while the history of this format has been around forever, the appeal of them has always been the same – that everyday people could win a lot of money by being tested for their mental or physical abilities (or more times than not just dumb luck). So this week join Tuong La and What We Do in the Basement’s Jesse Bergen, Natashia Durand, and Thomas Proles as they they land on the Daily Double and give the final answer of “what is Top 5 TV Game Shows?”.

109 – Top 5 Condiments

Tell us when…

Look, we’ve done a ton of food episodes on Ranked but we have often glossed over the unsung hero that are condiments. Condiments can make or break a food by giving it that little extra zing that you were missing. It can also turn a random assortment of green leafs into a helluva tasty salad or a dry piece of chicken into a mouth watering delight. So join Tuong and The Sonar Network/That’s How I Remember It ‘s Michael Mongiardi, Raul Delgado, and John Richardson as they give you a nice heaping dollop of fun in the form of Top 5 Condiments!

107 – Top 5 Sounds

**Imagine the following paragraph softly whispered in your ear**

You hear that? That’s the sound of an entire podcast episode dedicating to figuring out what the best sounds are! Autonomous sensory meridian response, or ASMR, has garnered immense popularity over the last decade. We all know sounds that we collectively disdain like nails on a chalkboard, but we often glossed over the sounds that we actually find enjoyable until ASMR came around. And while this episode is not strictly about ASMR, this week join Tuong La and the A-Team Angus MacDonald, Samantha Leggatt, and Leslie Cserepy as we rank the Top 5 Sounds that are sure to tickle your ears in the best way possible!
