Show Notes

So we finally got around to doing a podcast. I've been talking about this idea for years, and it came to fruition a few days ago when I sat down with Jon Askholm and Rob Crooks ** ** and recording a rambling, over-long 'radio show'. The format, if you want to call it that, was that we would each play records and discuss them, and despite a slow start, it actually started working out. We'll be ironing out the kinks in subsequent weeks (it's going to be a weekly show), cutting the show down to an hour and having a weekly theme... but here's the raw, unpolished debut episode of **Witchpolice Radio**.

We talk about balancing pop influences with more experimental psych vibes, about their [new record](http://ponemah-wpg.bandcamp.com/album/s-t-2) on [Transistor 66](http://www.transistor66.com/), being musical weirdos, and much more.

WR480: SeanGeek

I linked up with the McGinity brothers from Winnipeg's [SeanGeek Podcast](http://seanmcginity.ca/) for an episode! We talked about their long-running show, their background in the local music scene (I was initially supposed to interview them years ago about their band [Dome](http://seanmcginity.ca/dome-band), but the band broke up before the podcast happened), hate mail, and a whole lot more! If this is your first episode of Witchpolice Radio... please note that we don't usually get so 'inside baseball' about podcasting -- but this is a fun interview that covers that as well as their involvement in Winnipeg music. This episode is brought to you by our friends at [the Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/), and by [Trevor Fisher](http://www.linkedin.com/in/fishertrevor) of Way2Wealth Management.
