This week, George revisted his interview with the late, incredibly great Philip Seymour Hoffman.

He also spoke to Robyn Doolittle about Toronto's infamous mayor Rob Ford, found out that Adam Copeland (that's Edge for all you wrestling fans) has a baby with a great name, and talked to Sam Roberts about his "Hockey Sweater" experience. Peter Keleghan and Amanda Brugel chatted about their careers and their new movie Sex After Kids. And the always-fascinating Ken Dryden was also in the red chair, as was Steve Podborski, former Crazy Canuck and current Chef de Mission for the Canadian Olympic team in Sochi, who talked about what it takes to win gold.
