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

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.
