Let's get together

On our constantly updated events page, you'll see several opportunities to meet Alberta Podcast Network members and many other cool people.

One such event is Creative Mornings Edmonton, coming up on July 27. It features poet laureate Ahmed Knowmadic, who also happens to be working on a podcast project that we're excited to share with you in September! 

A rekindled pod and a Red Deer rep join up

Screen Shot 2018-07-20 at 11.27.40 AM.png

Today we welcome two more podcasts into the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB!

PopCycle is the reincarnation of NewbsRadio, one of the best pop culture podcasts of all time. That's not hype — your correspondent has been a huge fan for years, and it's a thrill to know that more episodes are on their way after a two-year hiatus. The whole story of the podcast's birth and revival is worth a look. 

Hosts Eric Newby and Christian Zyp take a piece of pop culture and make a map of connections through other pieces of pop culture until they find their way back to the original reference. It is smart and funny and endlessly creative. It's also a lot of work, so we'll have to wait until the end of August for the first new episode, but you can check out some of the best of the archive in the meantime.

The 2 and Out CFL Podcast is an exciting addition for a couple of reasons. First, it makes sense to up our football content with the Grey Cup being played in Edmonton this year. It's also our first podcast from outside of Edmonton and Calgary, as hosts Travis Currah and Ty Owchar (aka Brazilian Ty) are based in Red Deer. We're looking forward to some crossovers with Tight Ends, too!

Travis is a radio guy, so he's great on the mic. He and Ty have a ton of chemistry as they preview and recap every weekend of the CFL season, and chat about their fantasy football teams. The only drawback is that Travis is a Riders fan, but we know many of you suffer from this affliction, so we'll let it pass.

We've added quite a few podcasts recently, and the alphabetical listing of our shows on our home page was getting rather unwieldy. So we've reorganized it by topic to make it easier for you to find the podcast that suits your fancy.

It's a work in progress, but hopefully it's easier to use. We'll be making some changes to the weekly roundup in the coming weeks, too. If you have any feedback, please send it to hello@albertapodcastnetwork.com.

  

Alberta Podcast Network Roundup 33

The UnDad joins the family

theundad-wide.png

Today we welcome The UnDad Podcast into the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB!

The UnDad is the creation of Trent Wilkie, a longtime writer, journalist and performer in Edmonton who started blogging about parenting in 2014, shortly after he became a father.

Earlier this year, he started The UnDad Podcast, "a blunt and goofy take on being a parent in this bizarro modernity (by someone who didn't always want to be a parent)." Sometimes he does interviews with other parents, sometimes he shares audio of his two children and his wife, Elizabeth. Sometimes we get to hear works of fiction and sketches from Trent's endlessly creative mind. It's a trip.

If you're looking for a companion podcast in the network, it may go best with That's a Thing?!, a monthly conversation between a mother and her teenage daughter about media culture. Both let you hear a little bit of parenting out loud, in a way. Another connection is with Makeshift Stories, which Alan V Hare started many years ago to capture the bedtime stories he was making up for his son.

The UnDad takes the place of The Expats, Adam Rozenhart's delightful podcast about Canadians living abroad, which wrapped up production earlier this year. Adam's still with us, as producer of The Daveberta Podcast. You can find the whole family on the home page of albertapodcastnetwork.com

Four more podcasts enter the ring

20180705 - New Members.png

The Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB, is growing again! Today we welcome four more podcasts into the fold:

Best Wrestling Podcast is our first foray into "sports entertainment," aka professional wrestling. Johnathan McDonald and Matt Fitzgerald explore WWE, wrestling nostalgia, the regional circuit and more on their twice-weekly show. If you enjoy The 4th Line's occasional departures from hockey talk, you'll like this one, too.

City of Champions is Shane Fennessey's weekly interview show with interesting people doing exceptional things in Edmonton. Shane has a great eye and ear for a good story, and we're looking forward to helping him bring these stories to even more people. A nice companion piece from our current slate would be Let's Find Out, which looks at Edmonton's past.

The Networkers Quest sees Matt and Collette Fitzgerald sharing their own entrepreneurial journey by doing interviews with leaders who have overcome adversity to create greatness. And yes, that's the same Matt who does the wrestling podcast — a man of many tastes and talents! If you draw inspiration from A Branded World, Girl Tries Life or That's So Maven, this is one to add to your queue. 

Repodcasting is a monthly show in which two cousins — Lucia and Janet — cast different actors in well-known Hollywood movies. If you ever wanted to reboot The Matrix with someone other than Keanu, this is the show for you. Also, in every show, they find a role for Tony Danza. Somebody has to. This show pairs nicely with I Have Some Notes.

There are more announcements to come, but four is plenty to absorb at once, so that's enough for now.

If you're wondering if your podcast would be a good fit for the network, check out our frequently asked questions page. If you apply, be patient, as it takes a while to listen and decide.

Stay up-to-date on what the network and its members are doing by following our social media. We're on Twitter and Facebook, and, thanks to the amazing Beverley Theresa, we have a much more active presence on Instagram.

If you prefer your updates in your inbox, subscribe to our newsletter. We'll give you an at-a-glance summary of what's going on every week.
