Edmonton podcast roundup: Oct. 30, 2015

Podcast collage for Oct. 30Do you know what’s scary? The growing number of local podcasts that are accumulating in my feed. There’s a creative explosion going on, and it’s awesome to witness. It has also become impossible to listen to all of them, but I call this a good problem to have. Here are a few for your listening pleasure:

  • Hacked, the new podcast from Jordan Bloemen and Scott Winder, has come out of the gate with outstanding production values and fascinating content. Episode 1 is on email spoofing, and Episode 2 is on the perils of open Wi-Fi.
  • The love story of Jeff and Amy Nachtigall is sweet and dramatic and just a great listen on Robyn Wilson’s The One.
  • The Listmakers (Devin R. Bruce and Kim Stolz) have resumed production with a look at their favourite restaurants in Edmonton and Victoria.
  • Boozy Boob Tube is back with a ranking of the Treehouse of Horror specials on The Simpsons.
  • Also on a Halloween theme, Erin E. Fraser and Matt Bowes take a look at three horror films on Bollywood is for Lovers.
  • And YEG Music Magazine found four local tracks for a Halloween playlist.
  • The Press Gallery gets its Halloween on with a “SPOOKtacular BOOdget edition.” Those puns are pretty scary, anyway.
  • For another take on the provincial budget and other political matters, listen to Elliott Tanti and Michael Vecchio on Highlevel Showdown.
  • It’s a pleasure to hear Omar Mouallem at work, and his interview on The Yards podcast with Brad Ferguson of EEDC is no exception.
  • On Bi Weekly Unoriginal, Brian Bergum and Lindsey Walker offer a lovely rendition of Jack White’s Love Interruption.
  • If you missed it (or experienced the technical difficulties that I eventually sorted out with the track on Monday), check out my conversation with Chris Tse about blogging about fitness, entrepreneurship and photography.

The next episode of the Seen and Heard in Edmonton podcast, coming Sunday, features my live interviews with Danica Leblanc and Brandon Schatz at our first Edmonton podcasting meetup at Variant Edition. We had a great turnout, and I wanted to take this opportunity to shout out to all of the podcasts represented in the room:

If you were there and I missed you, please link to your podcast in the comments. The next meetup is happening on Nov. 22 at 11 a.m. at Variant Edition. It will be a panel discussion on podcasting tech, so if you have something to share or something to learn, come on down. Kindly RSVP on the meetup page so we know how many to expect.
