Show Notes

This week, Sam and Ryan are joined by comedians **[John B. Duff](http://oddblock.ca/speaker/john-b-duff/)** and **[Chantel Marostica](http://oddblock.ca/speaker/chantel-marostica/)** , along with **Erick Casselman** (owner of the Park Theatre), to talk about the upcoming **[Oddblock Comedy Festival](http://oddblock.ca/)** , Aug. 27-30 in Winnipeg's South Osborne neighbourhood. Recorded in the spacious lobby of the **[Park Theatre](http://oddblock.ca/the-park-theatre/)** (hence the mild echo), the gang discusses the local comedy scene, 'making it' as a comedian, "gut" songs and more! Along the way, Sam demonstrates his complete ignorance about the 'burggoinging' (or something) Winnipeg comedy scene in particular and stand-up in general. We all learn a thing or two.

WR308: JayWood

Last time Jeremy Haywood-Smith was on the podcast, he was covering songs by other local artists at a live event we were hosting. Now we're sitting down (in the food court) to talk about his own music and the part-band/part-solo project/all-encompassing moniker [JayWood](http://jaywood1.bandcamp.com/). Having returned from Sled Island and unexpectedly finding himself bandless, Jeremy has refocused his efforts on the experimental, dreamy indie-pop of his solo work, with a full-length LP on the way in the not-so-distant future.
