'Overdue Finds' joins our collection

We have the great good fortune to announce another affiliated podcast — Overdue Finds from the Edmonton Public Library!

This biweekly podcast features Bryce Crittenden and Caroline Land in conversation with fellow EPL staff members about movies, music, books, and all kinds of pop culture and media that you can find at the library.

The collection is vast, and the staff’s taste is hugely eclectic, so you’re bound to hear about something that will delight you, whether it’s romance novels, Archie comics, scary movies or even podcasts. And, if you’re wondering about the revitalization of the Stanley A. Milner library downtown, be sure to check out Episode 23 with CEO Pilar Martinez.

Overdue Finds launched in April 2018 after Bryce attended our workshop on how to start a podcast. Just a few months later, the podcast was nominated for two Canadian Podcast Awards. Quite the success story!

Funnily enough, the Edmonton Public Library is indirectly responsible for this network existing. When your correspondent started podcasting, which seemed like a prerequisite for starting a network, she recorded many of her episodes in the EPL Makerspace’s soundbooths. Without that free and accessible start, we might not be where we are today.

Many thanks to the EPL for that initial boost, and for this sponsorship, which allows us to bring attention not only to Overdue Finds, but also our member podcasts, who spread the word about our sponsors. It’s a big, happy circle, and we’re thrilled to have such a wonderful institution within it.

Alberta Business Spotlight: Park Power

Meet Kris Kasawski, the founder of Park Power, one of the sponsors of the Alberta Podcast Network.

Meet Kris Kasawski, the founder of Park Power, one of the sponsors of the Alberta Podcast Network.

Kris Kasawki finds parallels between the growing world of podcasting and what he does at Park Power, a provider of electricity and natural gas in Alberta.

“The world is democratizing,” he says. “The information is out there. The access to do anything is out there. Podcasts are a great example of that — the airwaves are no longer controlled by the radio companies.”

Similar forces made it possible for him to start his business six years ago. In Alberta, energy deregulation means consumers can choose who to buy their electricity and natural gas from, though the supply remains guaranteed.

That means providers like Park Power have to earn their customers. Kasawski does that by a combination of competitive rates and strong customer service.

“Everything’s Alberta-based — you’re either dealing with some nice ladies in Calgary, or you’re dealing with me, over phone, over email, over social media.”

And he sweetens the deal by contributing 10 per cent of his profits to local charities. When customers sign up, they choose which of Park Power’s community partners to direct those funds to. That’s part of the happiness he hopes to pass on to his customers.

“I’m not trying to hustle you into a deal that’s great for me but not great for the consumer,” he says. “We’re just trying to offer good rates, good services. Instead of your bill coming in every month and you’re just like, “Ughhhh,” … I’ve had consumers tell me they’re like, ‘Ah! I feel kind of good!’ ”
