Show Notes

If there's such thing as a "very special episode" of Witchpolice Radio, this is it. When we realized #36 was coming around, we temporarily scrapped the regular format of a randomly-generated theme word and decided to make a one-off (for now, anyway) episode specifically about one group: the Wu-Tang Clan. To help us nerd out about the Wu, we invited past guests Elliott Walsh, a/k/a Nestor Wynrush, (who first appeared on episode #19) and Ultra Mega frontman JD Ormond (episode #13) along for the ride. What you get here is about two-and-a-half hours of Wu-Tang love, plus some awesome song choices from throughout the career of the group and its many, many offshoots. Despite the length of the thing, the Wu mythology (and discography) is so deep that we barely scratched the surface.

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! ...

WR655: Greg Hanec

Space)doxa at the Graffiti Gallery has been Winnipeg’s source for outsider musical performances for years. I talked to its curator, Greg Hanec, about some of the upcoming events — acoustic, electronic and otherwise — coming up at the Higgins Ave. venue over the next few months.Sprinkled throughout are musical selections by space)doxa participants (chosen by Greg) including The Inflatable Band, French Class, Patrick Michalishyn, and Philia.Note: Because we're in the middle of a pandemic and changes to restrictions are happening fluidly, at least one of the events Greg discusses on the episode (the first one) has already been cancelled. Here's hoping the rest of them go smoothly! This episode brought to you by our pals at Devine Shirt Company and by Gruf and Yy's new 'Mental Health Day' album on Saskatoon Folk Rap Records.Huge thanks to everyone who supports the podcast on Patreon!

WR022: Johnny Perrin

This week, the fellas were joined by the one and only John Draper Perrin IV, who stopped by the basement to discuss the "thief" topic. You may know Johnny from his involvement in such local bands as Grandpa's Army, the Brat Attack, TBA, Den of Iniquity, and most recently, Up 'n Atom. Despite being a last-minute guest, Johnny's appearance was actually one of our better episodes, with some legitimately interesting discussion about the recording process (who knew?) We also watched "Hockey's Hardest Hitters" on VHS from 1992 (on mute) while recording the show, which becomes obvious partway through the program. Lots of fun this week. ...
