Friesen Point
Welcome to The Friesen Point, a place where Chicago comedians Dan Friesen and Dan Drees hang out with a hilarious friend and have a bull session. Sometimes, they delve into conspiracies. Sometimes, they play games. Always, they have a good time.

Today, Dan Friesen launches a new experiment in how the show is going to deal with Degrassi in the future. In this new form, he gets on the phone with his best friend/former co-host/guy he originally watched Degrassi with Nicky Gifts to break down all the ins-and-outs, the ups-and-downs in the lives of Canadian Teens. In this episode, the duo take on cancer, boring side-plots, and a bully with an interesting diet.

Today, Dan and Marty put on their conspiracy hats in an attempt to dig deep and find buried truth. This time, they take on the 1996 murder of 6 year old JonBenet Ramsey. It was deeply upsetting to research, and all that is totally clear is that she didn't fake her death and become Katy Perry.

After receiving a number of tweets requesting they do so, Dan and Marty discuss their feelings about the 5-part ESPN documentary, OJ: Made In America. Is it really a conspiracy? It's unclear. Is Dan hot for Marcia Clark? You're damn right he is. Anyway, they meant to do a 25 minute mini-episode, but overshot that by about 45 minutes.

Today, a new show variety is launched, wherein Dan Friesen (a man famously apathetic toward movies) and Bobby Budds (a man notoriously passionate about movies) sit down to discuss a film. In this first installment, the gents break down going to see the new Ghostbusters movie. Did they enjoy it? Did they think it was a "man-hating mess?" Do they even know how to critique a movie?
