Show Notes

For episode #28, Winnipeg filmmaker, music video director and DJ Damien Ferland stopped by the basement to talk about the "tooth" theme. This was another four-person episode, and it was a pretty animated discussion. Lots of talk about Bjork. Damien, apparently, loves Bjork. We talk about other things too, of course, including a whole lotta tooth songs.

WR413: Aaron Bacon

Bassist, music teacher, and YouTuber Aaron Bacon isn't new to the podcast – he's been on Witchpolice Radio before as a member of both [Dizzy Mystics](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/35c82ec809bf42/) and [Aphelion](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/368a3bad6675d2/) – but we've never talked about this project before. [Bacon's Bass Place](http://www.facebook.com/BaconsBassPlace/) is Aaron's all-purpose online presence for teaching bass techniques, vlogging, podcasting, and a lot more. We have a conversation in the food court about the project, where it's going, how it got started, and a lot more. Stay tuned to the end of the episode to [hear an example](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMUpDt7KCnk) of one of Aaron's bass lessons! This episode is brought to you by our friends at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/), who are presenting this year’s Manitoba Podcast Festival on Sept. 29! You’ll also want to check out a [show Sept. 6 at the Cavern](http://www.facebook.com/events/405665890061421/), featuring a trio of past guests on the podcast – [Joe Curtis Band](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/368d6cb7dccec0/), [Paige Drobot](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/37461d930714ac/), and [Heartsleeve](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/3790b3f76eba1e/).

WR551: Ryan McMahon / Unscripted Moments live from MBPodFest

We're almost at the end (mercifully) of 2020, so here's something fun to close out the year. It's a panel I moderated at this year's [Manitoba Podcast Festival](https://www.facebook.com/mbpodfest/), which was held virtually due to the pandemic. The panel featured [Ryan McMahon](http://www.rmcomedy.com/) ([Thunder Bay](https://www.canadaland.com/shows/thunder-bay/),[ Red Man Laughing](https://www.indianandcowboy.com/red-man-laughing-podcast)), alongside Keith and Greg from Unscripted Moments: A Podcast About Propagandhi. There's a lot of 'inside baseball' on this one about podcasting -- the topic is growing and developing an audience -- but I think it's of interest to Witchpolice listeners as well. Back to your regularly-scheduled programming next week! Happy New Year! Huge thanks to everyone who supports the podcast on [Patreon](http://www.patreon.com/witchpolice). You can help out for as little as $1 a month if you like the show and want to throw some change in the guitar case! ...
