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. The 4th Line looks at Game 7 excitement and offseason moves, plus the wild joy in Toronto around the Raptors.

Press Start to Join interviewed some Alberta game developers at Dark Matters at the Telus World of Science.

Unit B makes a great home base

If you’re looking for a sign that Unit B is right for you, this might be it.

If you’re looking for a sign that Unit B is right for you, this might be it.

It’s not an exaggeration to say Unit B Coworking has played a vital role in the success thus far of the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB.

Unit B, a coworking space in downtown Edmonton, has provided a strong home base for our small business, offering not only all of the amenities needed to get work done every day (including a podcast studio!), but also a community of great people.

So it’s truly a pleasure to be able to use the power of the network to let more people know about Unit B, a place that is “focused on helping people pursue their passions and making Edmonton its creative best.”

It started in 2011 in the basement of the McKenney Building at 10187 104 St. by a bunch of business who couldn’t find space, so they created their own. It has since expanded to the main floor. A number of successful businesses — including Kick Point, Berlin Communications, Strong Coffee Marketing, DOSC, Fire and Flower Cannabis, and Punchcard Systems — got their start at Unit B and grew into bigger places.

It is currently the home of such new and established organizations as NewEngage Training, Lex3 Engineering, YEG Live, Fancii, Progress Alberta and Taproot Publishing, and a workplace for a number of freelancers and remote workers .

I could tell you about all the features available here, but you’re better off visiting the website or booking a tour. Instead, let me tell you a story about the kind of serendipity that a place like this makes possible.

Around the time that Unit B was starting in 2011, I was leaving the Edmonton Journal, where I had spent 14 years as a journalist. I wrote this blog post, in which I quoted Robert Krulwich’s foundational commencement speech to Berkeley’s journalism grads:

“Think about NOT waiting your turn. Instead, think about getting together with friends that you admire, or envy. Think about entrepreneuring. Think about NOT waiting for a company to call you up. Think about not giving your heart to a bunch of adults you don’t know. Think about horizontal loyalty. Think about turning to people you already know, who are your friends, or friends of their friends and making something that makes sense to you together, that is as beautiful or as true as you can make it.”

Justin Archer read that post and loved that quote. In 2013, when designer Elizabeth Schowalter started working at Berlin, he asked her to make it one of her first projects. He had 10 copies of her beautiful hand-lettered poster printed and gave them to friends.

One ended up in Unit B co-founder Lisa Hagen’s office, and stayed behind when she moved to New York. Jas Panesar of NewEngage Training came across it and moved it to a more prominent place last fall because it spoke to him, too. And that’s when I came across it, completely unaware of any of this until I saw the print and expressed my surprise and gratitude on Instagram, prompting Justin to explain how it had come to be here.

All this to say that this is the kind of people Unit B attracts, and this is the kind of thing we believe with all our hearts. And if horizontal loyalty appeals to you, then this could be the place for you, too.

Unit B Coworking is a sponsor of the Alberta Podcast Network. If you would like to harness the power of the network to promote your organization, here’s what we offer. Get in touch at hello@albertapodcastnetwork.com.

What's up on the Alberta Podcast Network - April 27 to May 3

apn72-ig.jpg

As we suggested last week, we’re working on a new format for letting you know what our podcasters and affiliates have been up to lately. This will likely continue to evolve, but for this week, we offer a series of thematic playlists featuring recent episodes.

Thanks to Listen Notes, you can grab the feed for any of these playlists and put it right in your podcast app. Just hit the “Subscribe” button on any of these blocks. You can also play them from this page.


The Calgary and Edmonton lists include episodes that are particularly rooted in their cities of origin.

In the Calgary list, you’ll spend some time with the Airdrie-based Carre-Nivore with our newest member, Eat More Barbecue, and nerd out about knives with Kevin Kent on The Mess Hall Podcast. You’ll also hear a reminiscence about getting a difficult project to take flight with Terence C. Gannon on Not There Yet.

On the Edmonton list, we have a trip to the Citadel to see The Tempest with I Don’t Get It; Tomato Radio’s chat with the couple behind Rge Rd; a visit with the Edmonton Radial Railway Society and an Indigenous career fair on The Well Endowed Podcast; two takes with Edmonton-area teachers on gaming in the classroom from the Northern Nerdcast and Ed; an exploration of that rude question so many newcomers hear on OtherWise; and a deep dive with reporter Omar Mosleh on covering the hate beat on City of Champions. (We’ll add Speaking Municipally to the list when we can, but it’s up now, with a look at speed reduction.)

Looking for some diversion? We offer an original story from Makeshift Stories featuring the world’s most curmudgeonly time traveller, Ken Likeley; The Read-Along dissects a wild chapter of Moonshine; Press Start to Join geeks out on God of War and Overwatch; I Have Some Notes does what it can to fix Star Trek: Insurrection, while Repodcasting does what it can to fix Batman v Superman; and Kyle Marshall explores two versions of Lovely from A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.

Feeling sporty? We’ve got the latest FC Edmonton chatter from Loyal Company of the River Valley (come to their live show!). With the NHL playoffs on, The 4th Line Hockey Podcast and Hockey Feels have a lot to talk about. And you can hear the 2 and Out CFL Podcast tackle the draft.

We’re still working out what to call this category, but generally speaking, it’s got episodes on how to do better at business, life or whatever else you’re up to. A Branded World looks at lessons to draw from Netflix’s disruption of the video rental business; Girl Tries Life has an interview about dropping toxic relationships, and a coaching episode on a similar theme; The UnDad reflects on some examples of misguided parenting; Modern Manhood wonders why environmentalism is sometimes seen as unmanly; and Let’s Do Coffee gathers insights from Rob LeLacheur of Road 55.

All of this is possible because of our sponsors and partners:

Eat More Barbecue and Let's Do Coffee — two excellent ideas!

Untitled design (4).png

We’re happy to announce that we’ve brought two more podcasts into the Alberta Podcast Network.

Ryan Sanderson became a barbecue connoisseur while travelling for work, and Eat More Barbecue is part of his effort to put Alberta on the world’s BBQ map. “I am a barbecue fan and sometime cook that wants to promote the culture of barbecue in Alberta,” he says. “We have a vibrant and growing barbecue community here, and this is the place to learn all about it.”

You may have heard Ryan on Avery Cochrane’s Mess Hall Podcast back in November, and he was kind enough to have Avery on his show in February. So he’s already been a generous member of the community, and is a welcome addition to our Calgary contingent. Eat More Barbecue also goes well with our Edmonton-based food podcast, Tomato Radio.

Be sure to subscribe to Eat More Barbecue, and to follow the show on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Be careful, though — these are pretty delicious-looking feeds, and you may find yourself suddenly hungry!

Our other new addition is Let’s Do Coffee, a podcast created by NAIT’s Mawji Centre for New Venture and Student Entrepreneurship. It features interviews with local entrepreneurs, either student or alumni, about their business journeys.

You may already have heard about Let’s Do Coffee, as we’ve been promoting the podcast on our network as an affiliate since last fall. It has been such a delight to help it grow, and now we’re excited to welcome it as a member, joining our strong contingent of business-focused podcasts.

Dan van Veelen has done a tremendous job as host of the first season of the podcast. He’s about to graduate, so you’ll hear three more episodes with him (including today’s release with Rob LeLacheur of Road 55). Then a new host will be taking over, with the second season starting this fall.

You can subscribe to Let’s Do Coffee in the podcatcher of your choice, and you can follow the Mawji Centre on Twitter.

These additions are possible because of our founding sponsor, ATB Financial, as well as the Edmonton Community Foundation, Park Power, and other sponsors who have helped us bring this network to life and keep it growing. We’ll be announcing more new members in May.

Alberta Podcast Network Roundup 71

apn71-ig.jpg

We’re starting something new this week with the roundup. Thanks to Listen Notes, we have the ability to share with you a playlist of our network’s most recent episodes. This seems like a more user-friendly way to share the most recent episodes from our members and affiliates.

You can listen live by choosing the podcast you want to sample and hitting play. You can also put this list in your podcast app of choice by hitting the subscribe button. That will give you the full playlist on your device.

This will be the last time we have such a big roundup, as we recognize that more than 10 is a lot. Be sure to hit the “See all episodes” button at the bottom of this to get this week’s full contingent. And watch for shorter, more thematic playlists in the future.

The latest episodes of Bollywood is For Lovers — The People’s Champion: Akshay Kumar in Special 26, Holiday, and Baby — and Speaking Municipally — We're not trying to Drupe you but we might get a Core zone — weren’t showing up in Listen Notes when we first published this, so be sure to check them out, too. We’ll add them when we can.

We are able to bring this roundup to you thanks to our outstanding sponsors, some of whom create their own podcasts, which will now be integrated into our playlists whenever they have a new episode to share, as is the case this week with Overdue Finds from the Edmonton Public Library.
