Edmonton podcast roundup: Feb. 3, 2016

Today is my birthday, and look at all of these gifts that local podcasters unknowingly bestowed upon my ears:

  • 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:
