Let's get together in real life!

We have plenty of opportunities to meet in the next few weeks, whether it's at podcasting meetups in Calgary and Edmonton, PodSummit on May 5, or the many events that involve our podcasters and partners. 

Welcome our latest sponsor — YESS Painting!

Yess Logo - FINAL (1).jpg

The Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB, is thrilled to welcome our latest sponsor, YESS Painting!

YESS Painting is a new social enterprise that has started in Edmonton to help you spruce up your house while giving youth who have had it rough a chance to build a better future for themselves.

It works just like any other contract painting service — the difference is that the work is done by young people who have been involved with Youth Empowerment & Support Services, which helps 15- to 21-year-olds who are facing difficult realities such as homelessness, trauma, addictions or neglect. YESS Painting teaches business skills and life skills, pays the workers a living wage, and donates half of the profits to YESS.

Nathan Kawulka came up with the idea, and is applying his experience in the painting and construction industries to make it work. It's clear from talking to him that he cares deeply about equipping people with the skills, experience and money they need. YESS Painting's tagline is "Making the world a better place one job at a time," and if you spend a few minutes with Nathan, you'll see he believes that mission with all his heart.

He also loves podcasts, which makes him our kind of people! He saw an opportunity to let the listeners of the Alberta Podcast Network know about YESS Painting and consider doing some good while getting a job done around the house. We're excited to spread the word over the next few months.

You'll hear more about YESS Painting from our podcasters, and we'll be sharing more of the story in the coming weeks. Sign up for a free quote to see what YESS Painting can do for you. You can also see the training in action by following @YESSPainting on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Daveberta joins the Alberta Podcast Network!

politics-collage.jpg

We have the great good fortune of welcoming The Daveberta Podcast to the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB. 

This is a relatively new podcast, but it has already made a big splash. It is hosted by Dave Cournoyer, who has been blogging about Alberta politics at daveberta.ca since 2005 (!), and Ryan Hastman, a longtime political observer and former candidate. Dave leans left, and Ryan leans right, but they share a deep interest in political discourse, and they're not afraid to get wonky. They are ably assisted by Adam Rozenhart, who chimes in from time to time while producing.

This brings our contingent of politics-based podcasts to three. The Daveberta Podcast joins Highlevel Showdown, a spirited weekly discussion of local, provincial, national and international politics with Sharon Mvundura, Elliott Tanti and Michael Vecchio; and The Broadcast, a twice-monthly look at women and politics in Alberta with Trisha Estabrooks and Alex Zabjek.

You'll start seeing The Daveberta Podcast popping up in our weekly roundup of APN episodes soon. Stay up-to-date on the network, plus a lot of interesting podcast-related and podcast-adjacent events, by signing up for our newsletter.

Two more join the network!

gaffers-thing.jpg

Today we announce the addition of two more podcasts to the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB!

The Young Gaffers offers a "refreshing, ridiculous, and uniquely Canadian perspective on all corners of the soccer world," as hosts Jason and Adam say. "From the Premier League to Major League Soccer to their recreational pub league, nobody is safe from this irreverent look at The Beautiful Game." 

That gives us a trifecta of soccer podcasts in the network, with The Young Gaffers joining For Kicks, which focuses on women's soccer, and Loyal Company of the River Valley, which focuses on Canadian men's soccer.

Our other addition this time around is That's a Thing?!, a "sometimes belated, already outdated guide to your teens, tweens and everything under 20." In it, you'll hear Elizabeth teensplain her media culture to her mom, Karen (aka your correspondent and president of this network), who offers in return some perspective from the olds. 

That's A Thing?! will eventually replace Karen's other podcast, Seen and Heard in Edmonton, which recently ended its run. We'll leave it in the grid for a little while longer, because hey, there are still some good episodes there for you to check out. 

We're gearing up for a big year. Stay tuned for changes to the network lineup, as well as a number of workshops and events, which you can find on our Events page.
