Today is my birthday, and look at all of these gifts that local podcasters unknowingly bestowed upon my ears:
- Dave Cournoyer and Kyla Fisher tell their love story to Robyn Wilson on The One. I didn’t know they were expecting a baby. Squeee!
- Rev Recluse dug up some real treasures for the latest Vintage Edmonton Music Podcast: a couple of excellent singles from the ’60s, and a rousing anthem for striking Gainers workers from 1986. (P.S. Rev makes music of his own: Check out The Legitimate Oyster Fishermen.)
- Sandra Sperounes has an interesting conversation with rapper Mitchell Lawler about music, art and entrepreneurship on Dirt City Limits.
- Fawnda Mithrush and Paul Blinov are covering dance at the new Chinook Series on I Don’t Get It. (Speaking of Chinook, the What It Is crew is recording the salons with various artists at the festival. I haven’t had time to dig in yet, but I shall.)
- Brian Bergum takes a run at Bob Dylan’s Tangled Up in Blue on Bi-Weekly Unoriginal.
- On Pet Sounds, Sarah Hoyles deconstructs the idea of the Cat Lady and examines how the stereotype is changing.
- Devin Bruce joins Erin E. Fraser and Matt Bowes on Bollywood is for Lovers to nerd out about two adaptations of Shakespeare tragedies.
- On Boozy Boob Tube, the delightful Danica LeBlanc joins Jessica, Lou and Katie to talk about Agent Carter and other comics brought to the screen.
- This week I learned there’s a local podcast about indy wrestling, and it’s amazing. Hearing Mike the Ref’s passionate recap of RCW Madness in Ponoka on the Edmonton Sports Podcast Network, complete with promos, brings me joy.
- Alex Fortin and Dan Clarke have a really interesting conversation with Adam Dyck about comedy, religion, punching up vs punching down and other matters on The Worst Podcast Ever.
- Dan joined Erika Ensign of Verity! and Kevin Horek of Building the Future on our panel about promoting your podcast, the audio from which is on the latest Seen and Heard in Edmonton episode.
- Troy Pavlek has released some more interviews with Ward 12 candidates on Basket of Yegs, and I recommend them, especially if you can vote in the byelection but even if you can’t.
- Wang Yip talks to Dr. Lee Green about disruption and innovation in the health care system on The Dip.
- I don’t speak Tagalog, so I can’t get the full value of OFW On Air, Kirk Lim’s podcast where he interviews overseas Filipino workers. But the latest episode quotes the immortal Yoda — “Do or do not, there is no try” — and that’s always a message worth hearing.
A wonderful way to wish me Happy Birthday would be to do one (or heck, all!) of these things:
