backtoschoolagain-banner.jpg

Back to School Again is back, this time as a full-fledged member of the Alberta Podcast Network!

We had the opportunity last fall to help get this podcast about mid-life learning launched and into the ears of the right listeners. Now, as Back to School Again enters its second season, it joins our other member podcasts in the education and self-help space.

As a member, the podcast will now run ads, but otherwise, nothing will change. It still features inspiring and interesting interviews with a wide variety of mid-life learners, as well as host Katrina Ingram’s reflections on her own journey back to the classroom.

You can get a sense of what Season 2 has to offer in this trailer. The season launches on Sept. 17, and episodes will come out every two weeks after that.

In the meantime, read Katrina’s blog post for International Podcast Month on how podcasting helped her get over her back-to-school anxiety. And read her views on the educational value of podcasting in this piece from MacEwan University, where she contributed to a podcast called Artful Conversations.

You can subscribe to Back to School Again in all of the usual places, and follow it on Twitter and Facebook.

'anticulture' adds a tile to our mosaic

anticulture-banner.jpg

We’re pleased to let you know that we’ve welcomed anticulture with Josiah Sinanan into the Alberta Podcast Network.

Josiah describes his show as “a cultural podcast that seeks to re-establish the North American concept of culture, by focusing on the stories of the unique individuals around us.”

Josiah was born and raised in Calgary, and went to France then Sierra Leone after graduation for further studies and experiences. He returned to Alberta in 2017, and started the podcast in 2018. He calls himself “culturally ambiguous, open-eared and always curious” — you’ll hear that come through in his interviews as he works to get past stereotypes and first impressions to reach true understanding.

Season 1 focused on interviews with a variety of Albertans. Season 2 went further afield to include guests from all over the world. He’s now in the process of planning Season 3, which will begin in the fall.

This makes an interesting companion piece to Calgary Culture: The Perspectives YYC Podcast, as well as City of Champions, which features interviews with folks with an Edmonton connection. Subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts, and follow it on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Many thanks to our founding sponsor, ATB Financial, and our other sponsors for making it possible to bring more podcasts into the network.

'Life with Dementia' shares solutions

lifewithdementia-banner.jpg

We’re so pleased to introduce you to the latest addition to our network — Life with Dementia, a solutions-driven podcast sharing relevant research, personal stories, and practical tips to help people live well with dementia.

Host Johnna Lowther is an educator, author and consultant who has a passion for senior care and a belief that the world needs more empathy for the true needs of people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Her show is realistic but full of hope, and often touches on how art and creativity can help us live well for our whole lives.

“My friends with dementia have been and continue to be some of the greatest spiritual teachers I’ve known,” she said in a recent episode. “They’ve changed my life, and the lives of many other I know, because we took the time to stop, listen, and learn the language being spoken.”

Johnna heard about the Alberta Podcast Network on CKUA. She got in touch and was inspired to extend her work through a podcast, and now we have the opportunity to amplify her efforts with our network.

Life with Dementia makes another great addition to our education and self-improvement podcasts. Subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts, and follow it on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

Many thanks to our founding sponsor, ATB Financial, and our other sponsors for making it possible to bring more podcasts into the network.

We're growing with ‘This Is Adulting’

adulting-blogpost.jpg

Being a grownup is not for the faint of heart. Luckily, This Is Adulting is here to help us learn some of those skills we were “supposed” to acquire along the way, or at least not feel so bad that we didn’t. And now the podcast is part of the Alberta Podcast Network!

Hosted by Danielle Newman and Jack Phavone, and produced by Lindsay Oulton, This Is Adulting is a twice-monthly show “about finding yourself in adulthood, discussing life influencers, and passing on what you’ve learned.” They often bring in guests to help them along the way, but sometimes it’s just a good, funny conversation between two friends who are at pretty different places in their lives but enjoy each other’s company a great deal.

You may remember Danielle from her star turn on I Have Some Notes in September 2018, when she joined our favourite armchair screenwriters to rework The Mighty Ducks. This Is Adulting was born not long after, and we have greatly enjoyed watching it grow.

This Is Adulting joins our other education and self-improvement shows. Be sure to subscribe, and follow This Is Adulting on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Many thanks to our founding sponsor, ATB Financial, and our other sponsors for making it possible to bring more podcasts into the network.
