Edmonton podcast roundup: Feb. 24, 2016

Friends, I literally can’t find the time to listen to everything I want to listen to and highlight here. There’s too much! I love that.


  • Hacked is back with Bad USB, a well-produced dive into on how easy it is to break into a computer by plugging something into it.
  • For something completely different (but also somewhat related), the crew of the HMSS Stardreamer gets hacked in the latest episode of the improvised intergalactic podcast Stardreamers.
  • Adam Rozenhart’s The Expats checks in with musician Doug Hoyer, a former St. Albertan now living in Athens, Georgia.
  • The boys at North by NorthGretz take a trip down memory lane with Pat Hughes, who played with the Oilers during the dynasty years.
  • The For Kicks podcast is super-happy the women’s national soccer team is going to the Olympics, and a little bit sad the team lost to the U.S. in the CONCACAF tournament final.
  • The Loyal Company of the River Valley offers running commentary on an interview with FC Edmonton coach Colin Miller, among other things.
  • feb24podcastroundup2On the What It Is podcast, Taylor Chadwick interviews artists involved in a couple of theatre productions: Subway Circus from Blarney Productions, and Alice Through the Looking Glass at the Citadel. (If you, like me, have been pronouncing John Ullyatt’s last name wrong, you will be set straight in this episode.)
  • On Trash, Art and the Movies, Paul Matwychuk and Erin E. Fraser compare and contrast two films about women in sports.
  • Prof. William Anselmi returns to The Movie Jerks to talk about Hugo and Cinema Paradiso with JP Fournier and Shawn Gramiak.
  • Ever thought of Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince as a teen sex comedy? Hannah McGregor and and Marcelle Kosman make an entertaining case for it on Witch, Please, with film scholar Neale Barnholden.
  • Omar Mouallem discusses the return of rent with Jandip Deol of Colliers International on The Yards podcast.
  • On the Edmonton City as Museum Project’s podcast, former historian laureate Shirley Lowe explains to Sarah Hoyles how Edmonton almost paved over its inner city and river valley to make a freeway in the 1960s.
  •  If you’re a journalistic entrepreneur or an entrepreneurial journalist, tune into my discussion with David Dodge of Green Energy Futures on the latest Seen and Heard in Edmonton podcast.

That’s just the tiniest bit of what you could listen to among all of the locally produced podcasts in this city. Find more in previous podcast roundups, on the Northern Content Network, and on the Edmonton Nerd List’s media page.
