This week on 514 Undiscovered, Alexa and Giordano learn the ropes of ASMR with a full-time artist. They play with everyday objects to determine which ones invoke that tingling sensation in viewers. Later, they delve into the world of fantasy through Dungeons & Dragons and other tabletop games. A member of Canada’s international board game squad discusses the potential of tabletop games at the Olympics.

514 Undiscovered captures the vibrancy of Montréal’s most obscure communities. The city is renowned for its eclectic makeup, yet we seldom hear about the inner workings of its underground groups. Each week show hosts Giordano Cescutti and Alexa Everett immerse themselves into two diverse communities to capture a behind-the-scenes look and to dispel common misconceptions. With the help of members of each group, Giordano and Alexa learn how to become ASMRtists, belly dance and battle each other during live action role-playing.
