Show Notes

On Sept. 29, we held our second annual [Manitoba Podcast Festival](http://www.facebook.com/mbpodfest/) at the Park Theatre. This year's event was a big success, in part, because of the networking format we set up, which allowed podcasters, listeners, and everyone else to meet and share with local creators in every possible genre. This episode is a compilation of some of the conversations I had over the course of the afternoon with some of the participants, including (in chronological order): [Travelling Minds](http://libbyj.ca/podcast/), [Echo Podcast](http://www.echopodcast2019.com/), [2 Baked Girls](http://2bakedgirls.org/), [Thick & Sweaty](http://thicknsweaty.podbean.com/), [Koj-B Films](http://www.kojbfilms.com/), [This Ain't Babysittin'](http://www.facebook.com/thisaintbabysittin/), [Beaver Does Movies](http://beaverdoesmovies.wixsite.com/beaverdoesmovies), and CKUW's [Behind the Curtain](http://ckuw.ca/programs/detail/behind-the-curtain). These, of course, were only a few of the many podcasters at the event, and we're hoping to build on the festival's momentum with events throughout the year. This episode is brought to you by our friends at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/). …and by [Trevor Fisher](http://www.linkedin.com/in/fishertrevor) of Way2Wealth Management, a local Certified Financial Planner who can help you start planning your financial independence.

WR702: Ben Lowe

Winnipeg’s Ben Lowe is the new face behind the bass for acclaimed Canadian blues/rock/reggae staples Big Sugar, but it’s in his blood — he’s the son of late Big Sugar bassist (and reggae icon) Garry Lowe.We talked about carrying on his dad’s legacy, finding time to play music with his own trio here in Winnipeg, and much more. As regular listeners know, I like to include songs by the interviewee in each episode, but Ben said he wasn't sure he had any of his own material he was ready to share (yet)... "so why not use some Big Sugar?"...so I found a pandemic cut of "If I Had My Way," featuring a whole bunch of Canadian celebrities (and Ben handling some of the vocals/acoustic guitar), so that's in here... and I took the opportunity to force some tracks from Big Sugar's 20+ year old 'Alkaline' dub project on you. Ben's obviously not playing on these (but his dad is), and I remain -- to this day -- shocked that 'Alkaline' isn't more wildly known. It rules. It's still my favourite Big Sugar-related project to date, although we'll see what the new lineup has in store for the future.
