WR620: Greg Soden of Unscripted Moments

WR620: Greg Soden of Unscripted Moments

Here's a “Winnipeg-adjacent” episode with Greg Soden, one of the hosts of U.S.-based Unscripted Moments: A Podcast About Propagandhi, a thoroughly-researched song-by-song deep dive into Winnipeg’s own Propagandhi!We got a bit nerdy about the podcast biz, talked about the impact the band has had on Greg and his listeners, the amount of research that goes into each episode, and much more! NOTE: I recorded this in a different spot than my usual office/studio location, so my end of the conversation is a bit roomy-sounding, but certainly not enough to detract from the quality of the interview.
