'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.

No lie — It's a Conspiracy! is now with us

itsaconspiracy-wide.jpg

Our recent signing blitz continues with the addition of It’s a Conspiracy! to the network.

Co-hosts Andrew, Charlie and Greg “lay out the beliefs behind selected conspiracy theories, alternative accounts, legends, myths and more.” They take a look at the odd things some people believe, and weigh in on whether they think there’s any truth to be found. Along the way you’ll hear plenty of jokes, musical interludes, and a deep appreciation of craft beer.

Now and then, they insert a special, often inspired by a holiday or event of note, in which you’ll learn all manner of strange facts. You’ll hear some of those specials over the summer before Season 2 officially begins in September.

You may already have heard a little bit of It’s a Conspiracy! on our network, as Andrew has been a guest on Northern Nerdcast and the Mess Hall Podcast. It joins the other podcasts in our Stories and Storytelling category. If you like our Pop Culture shows, you’ll probably like this one, too.

Be sure to subscribe in your podcatcher of choice, and follow It’s a Conspiracy! on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.

Perspectives YYC adds a new point of view

We are growing again with the addition of Calgary Culture: The Perspectives YYC Podcast!

Hosted by David Youn, this podcast features creative Calgarian conversations. David himself is a photographer and publisher, and his desire to uplift local artists and creative people infuses his questions. The podcast is an extension of his larger Perspectives YYC project.

The podcast gets production support from Kyle Marshall of Media Lab YYC, who has three shows on our network (Assumptions, Creative Block and Putting It Together). You can hear a bit more about their collaboration on Episode 37 of Creative Block, and you can hear even more about David’s journey in Episode 13.

We’re excited to have a Calgary counterpart for our Edmonton-focused arts show, I Don’t Get It. Their approaches are pretty different, but they both pay attention to what’s going on in local arts and culture, and that’s the sort of thing we like to encourage.

Subscribe to Calgary Culture: The Perspectives YYC Podcast in any of the usual places, and follow the show on Instagram and Facebook.

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

Eskimo Empire Podcast enters the huddle

As the CFL regular season starts to hit its stride, we’re happy to announce that the Eskimo Empire Podcast has joined our team!

Hosted by Andrew, Mike and Kayla, this is one of Edmonton’s longest-running podcasts. It offers a passionate look at the Esks and CFL football every Tuesday during the season (a little less frequently through the off-season). You can also get a sneak preview every Monday night on Twitter, just before they record their show from the Turf District.

If you don’t listen to Eskimo Empire yet, you may have heard a sampling on our network. Andrew recently guest-hosted on 2 and Out, and Kayla was on Tight Ends last June.

Eskimo Empire is an enthusiastic member of the CFL Podcast Network, as is 2 and Out, and we know it will be a great citizen of our community, too.

Be sure to subscribe in the podcatcher of your choice, and follow the show on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Many thanks to our founding sponsor, ATB Financial, and our other sponsors for making it possible to keep growing the network!

The challenge with rounding up our sports podcasts every week is sometimes the things they preview — like the Stanley Cup or the NBA championship, for example — are over by the time we get a chance to talk to you here. But fear not — our podcasters always talk about more than just the game.

The CFL season has begun, so 2 and Out is coming out twice a week. They wrap up the preseason, then look ahead with Rod Smith of TSN.
