Show Notes

As we inch ever-closer to 20 episodes, Winnipeg filmmaker Ryan Simmons stopped by the basement to discuss the "Cannibal" theme. This is another three-hosts-n'-a-guest format, and I'm really liking the way these ones are sounding. Ryan has been working on a new video for Witchpolice Radio co-host Rob Crooks, but he's also done videos for local bands like KEN Mode and This Hisses that we all know and love

WR528: Twitchitt

On this episode, I explore distant planets with synthpop space traveller [Twitchitt](http://www.twitchitt.com/), whose cosmic new record, Bubblegum Disturbium, is out now! It’s a fun conversation about her colourful (both sonically and visually) new direction, finding creative outlets during the pandemic, selling CDs door-to-door, and much more! Note: I accidentally erased the first couple minutes of this episode, so it launches right into the conversation as soon as it starts. This episode brought to you by [Rob Crooks](http://robcrooks.bandcamp.com/), whose outstanding new album, Introducing the Ghost, is out now from[ Saskatoon Folk Rap Records](http://saskatoonfolkraprecords.bandcamp.com/)! Check out our pals at [Devine Shirt Company](http://devineshirtcompany.ca/) for your merch needs! Huge thanks to everyone who supports the podcast on [Patreon](http://www.patreon.com/witchpolice).

WR050: Sam Koulack / Doug Feaver

A milestone! We've hit 50 episodes! To celebrate the occasion, we've put together an unintentionally slapdash episode that ended up being really, really solid. Due to a last-minute scheduling conflict with our anticipated guest (who will be on a later show, so stay tuned), we turned to past guest Sam Koulack of the Wet Bananas, who also happens to be co-host Jon's roommate. Sam was, thankfully, available, so he took on the job without any advance preparation for the "pyramid" theme this week. If that wasn't enough, we also tried out a major new initiative this week and had a guest on the show from all the way in Montreal: Doug Feaver of Corona Ferox and Dead Future. Doug called in to the show and talked about his recent touring, recording etc., and the ability to talk to non-Winnipeg guests (very clearly and in high quality, too) opens up a lot of doors for the next 50 episodes of this show. ...

WR139: Hawksley Workman

We’re doing something a little differently this week and bringing you a conversation Luke Jacob Thiessen had with iconic Canadian singer-songwriter Hawksley Workman about his new album and the upcoming Interstellar Rodeo festival at the Forks. Luke originally used this interview for a piece he wrote in the Uniter, but we’ve combined the audio with some of Hawksley Workman’s songs to make it more ‘in the style of’ our usual episodes. Luke is actually a past guest on our show himself, and you can check out his music at lukejacob.bandcamp.com and follow him on Twitter @ljthiessen. ...
