As we head into the May long weekend, we offer a fine selection of Alberta-made listens for your edification and amusement. You can listen to all of these right here, if you want, or you can put the playlist you fancy right into your podcast-listening app by hitting the “subscribe” button. Here’s how it works.
Arts and entertainment
On the local front, the Northern Nerdcast has a chat with artist Kelly Tindall about his Kickstarter for Strangebeard 2, and Trent Wilkie performs some original flights of fancy on The UnDad. Further afield, I Have Some Notes reworks Godzilla,; The Read-Along wraps up Moonshine and announces the next book to receive the chapter-by-chapter treatment; Putting It Together dissects a sexist song from Forum, with musical accompaniment; and Press Start to Join discusses free games, State of Play, tech news and more.
The Well Endowed Podcast has a great interview with Liz O’Neill about her 40 years of service with BCGBigs, and Linda Hoang has an in-depth discussion of social media for non-profits with Kath Oltsher of Zoe’s Animal Rescue on Don’t Call Me A Guru. Tomato Radio talks about Edmonton chefs on TV, farmers’ markets and food events, and Let’s Do Coffee chats with Shannon Neighbour about how she got into the recruitment business. City Hall-wise, don’t miss the latest from Speaking Municipally, which we’ll add to the list when it becomes available, and catch up on City of Champions’ interview with Coun. Ben Henderson.
Eat More Barbecue learns about the delicious goings-on at the Way Out West Fest, and the Mess Hall Podcast pays a visit to Cinde Little, the Everyday Gluten-free Gourmet. Girl Tries Life gets into personal branding with Avro Creative’s Kristen Dyck. And Not There Yet gets real nerdy about a piece of aviation history with host Terence C. Gannon — not exactly a Calgary story, but it emanates from there!
In addition to extensive NHL playoffs coverage from The 4th Line and Hockey Feels, you can also dig into a little hockey history and behind-the-scenes chatter with Oilers’ trainer Ken Lowe on City of Champions. Loyal Company of the River Valley looks back at FC Edmonton’s home opener and looks ahead to the next game in Calgary, and 2 and Out talks CFL with Josh Smith from Podskee Wee Wee and 3 Down Nation. Tight Ends has a new episode out, too, which we’ll add to the list when we can — it’s got a whole bunch of sports in it, plus a look back at the Calgary Beer Fest.
Luiza Campos of A Branded World drops some knowledge about getting to know your customers, and Victoria Smith of Girl Tries Life encourages you to have an abundance mindset. Modern Manhood shares insights from a recent event on whether men and women can be friends, and Ed talks to an educator who helps prepare teachers for their important work.
If you listen to any of these, or if you have ever listened to an Alberta Podcast Network show, please fill out our survey. It won’t take long, and it will help us out enormously. Plus, you can enter yourself in a draw for $100.
