WR051: Adam Parsons / Ryan Sanders

Returning guests Adam Parsons of Up n’ Atom and Ryan Sanders, formerly of Knifeinmyback and BSY (expect music by both of these groups on Witchpolice soon) join us to talk about this week's randomly-generated “snake” theme!    This episode includes some news about Up n’ Atom’s upcoming LP, a ‘weird animal facts’ quiz game and lots of great ‘snake’-themed song selections, including a choice by Jesus le Jesus, who was originally intended to appear on this show but will be popping up at a later date. You also get a listen to one of Adam's early bands, Planet Uranus, whose work will also be popping up on Witchpolice some time before the end of the year. ...

WR120: Gruf the Druid and The Gumshoe Strut

If you don’t think **[Gruf the Druid](http://www.witchpolice.com/2013/09/witchpolice-radio-episode-42-process.html)** is Winnipeg’s best rapper, you probably have him on your shortlist. Between Frek Sho, Fermented Reptile, Sound Barriers and his acclaimed solo records, Gruf is an iconic figure on the local rap scene. He has also released a new album, _[Surface Area](http://marathonofdope.com/portfolio/gruf-the-druid-surface-area/)_ , produced by his Winnipeg rap contemporary **[The Gumshoe Strut](http://marathonofdope.com/portfolio/the-gumshoe-strut/)** (Your Brother in my Backpack, Turn the Gun). They both join Sam on the podcast to talk about the new record and, appropriately, “pagan” songs. If you like what you hear, the release party for _Surface Area_ is coming up April 4 at the Good Will Social Club. Gruf and Gumshoe are (obviously) on the bill, alongside Witchpolice Radio co-host **Rob Crooks** , past guest John "Bazooka Joe" Smith and DJ Hunnicutt (who will hopefully be a guest at some point). ...
