Show Notes

Winnipeggers might know [Drew Wolitarsky](http://www.instagram.com/drew_william_wolitarsky/) best for his work on the football field as a member of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, but he’s spending this pandemic-induced time off from being a pro athlete to hone his musical chops. We talked about the disconnect some people might encounter hearing a football player baring his soul as a deeply personal singer-songwriter, about his love for Winnipeg (he’s about to spend his first winter here), his curbside gigs, and much more. Note: I recorded this call in a different room than usual, which is why my side of the conversation is slightly shittier, audio-wise, than you're used to. Definitely doesn't ruin the quality of the chat, though! This episode brought to you by the Gumshoe Strut’s new [Heartbeat EP](http://thegumshoestrut.bandcamp.com/album/heartbeat-ep), and by [Sean Burns](http://seanburns.bandcamp.com/), whose new album of truckin’ songs is raising funds for Times Change(d), where it was recorded.
