Edmonton podcast roundup: June 23, 2017

June 23 podcast roundup

I ran out of time to do a blog roundup this week (sorry — you can look at previous ones if you’re hankering for some local reads). But I did listen to some local podcasts. Let’s begin with a couple of recent cross-pollinations before heading into a list organized by time investment:
German Villegas is involved in both of these: He had Elliott Tanti and Michael Vecchio of Highlevel Showdown on his Modern Manhood podcast, and then German turned up on Meredith Bratland’s new podcast, Migration Patterns, to talk about his Chilean roots.
