DvP 029: The Interview

Happy Canadian National Day of Podcasting 2015!


I try to get to the bottom of the whole Duct Cleaning Racket with an ‘Interview’ with a couple of gentlemen that appear to be working for two different companies that both wish to clean my ducts.

Company 1: Capital Air Duct Cleaning near Minto and Victoria Park in Toronto, I have NO IDEA where this is.

Company 2: Canadian Duct Cleaning Services in Oakville, Ontario – apparently 1500 Upper Middle Road Unit 105. I believe this place does not exist.

DvP027: The Duct Cleaning Omnibus

Here it is, finally all put together for your listening enjoyment.

The Duct Cleaning Omnibus edition of Doug vs the Phone.

BTW… I’m not sure that it is really an Omnibus. More of a short bus if anything…

I offer some notes on “John’s” script reading as he calls me from the air duct cleaning company.

DvP025: Infinite Fun

I know an old lady who swallowed a fly…


Jennifer and Ryan are the crack marketing team at what appears to be Complete Home Services… or is it Infinity Duct Cleaning?

Jennifer is a patient person, with limits.

Ryan is a whiz at company names and websites, but sucks at telephone numbers and addresses.

What their “company” can offer you:

  • Air Snake Brush ™
  • They Clean the Ductwork AT your house!
  • They have a website (hacked or not) that will offer the “abortion pill”
  • Company phone number given only to interested customers
  • They will call you when you need them
  • They can give you the best service
  • You can trust them…. they say so themselves!
  • DNC list? What’s that?

Serge is frustrated by Jennifer, Ryan and the likes of them. He has since had to rename his company to Mercury Duct Cleaning, thanks in part, to their crazy shenanigans. I will give him the benefit of the doubt… for now.

DvP 024: Eco Energy Home Services

I receive yet another Duct Cleaning phone call from a “company” with the very imaginative name of “The Duct Cleaning Company” but they hang up before I can have any sort of real deep conversation about marketing, websites and SEO with them.

Later, I receive a call from an actual company that apparently has a brick and mortar ‘store front’ here in Toronto. Eco Energy Home Services has returned to my phone even after telling them that I do not want calls from them and reminding them to consult the DNC list over a year ago. Memories are short for this company apparently…. or they just don’t give a crap.

DvP 022

A different kind of call this week from a telemarketer selling home security monitoring. He claims to be from Chubb Edwards and clearly is not. Thanks for subscribing and thanks for the kind tweets and comments.

DvP 021: Hercules Hercules Hercules !

A series of phone calls from my friends over at Hercules Pharmacy.

The audio equivalent of Viagra and an interview for a co-host.

Thanks for listening!
