Fun fact: Edmonton-based podcasters produce at least 100 episodes a month. My next calculation: How many minutes is that? (Answer next week.) While you wait, here are some episodes you might want to check out:
- Jason Lee Norman chats with the contributors to 40 Below, an anthology of writing about winter in Alberta. I enjoyed his conversation with Omar Mouallem and look forward to diving into the rest of the 40 Below Sessions. (The Edmonton launch of Volume 2 is at Audreys Books on Nov. 8.)
- OilersNation dives into podcast-land with North x NorthGretz, a conversation about the Oilers between the men known as Jeanshorts, Baggedmilk and Chris the Intern.
- On Off Menu, cookbook author and Food Network star Emily Richards stops to chat with Phil Wilson on her way to Jasper for Christmas in November.
- Adam Rozenhart interviews a Canadian who ended up in Hong Kong via Guatemala and Singapore on The Expats.
- Sci-fi and fantasy artists Mike Sass and Jim Beveridge talk about their work in a live interview with the Unknown Studio at Pure Spec. (Also from Pure Spec, a conversation about nerd community for all from Yegs & Bacon.)
- All of the hype in advance of the new Star Wars movie, among other things, bugs Josh, Alan and Mike on Press Start to Join.
- Sarah Hoyles adds a furry coda to the federal election with a Pet Sounds episode on political animals.
- In the runup to the Canadian Folk Music Awards, Fish Griwkowsky talks to Roger Levesque and Tom Murray about the changing face of folk on Dirt City Limits.
- On Trash, Art and the Movies, Paul Matwychuk and Erin E. Fraser look at a couple of movies about disintegrating marriages (but in a fun way?).
- In case you missed it, the most recent episode of Seen and Heard in Edmonton podcast is with Danica LeBlanc and Brandon Schatz. The episode going up Sunday is with Ryan Batty of Copper & Blue and All Roads Lead to Ryan.
I’ve been reading a lot about the podcasting boom, and will share some of the most interesting and useful things I’ve read in the next Seen and Heard in Edmonton newsletter. Subscribe so you can get on that train. It will also have more details on next Edmonton podcasting meetup on Nov. 22.
