We searched the archives and dug up some of Dave’s most memorable rants from 2010:
Local experts you can trust.Find an ELP
Lottos and Losers
In this rant, a Twitter listener asks why Dave is against playing the lottery. Dave explains and goes off about the “little man can’t get ahead” mentality. Let’s just say he’s not a fan of it. Listen now.

This one might have gotten the strongest reaction from Dave all year. He reads an article from the Ottawa Citizen on the European Union’s declaration that vacationing is a human right. You can probably guess where he’s going with this. Listen now.
