Show Notes

It’s weird to think of Churchill, Man., as a hot spot for anything but polar bears, but I had a great interview with [Roy Mexted](http://www.churchillentertainment.com/) — the second musician from Down Under (shoutout to Rob Knaggs) to fall in love with northern Manitoba I’ve had on the podcast. It's an interesting conversation about the appeal of the Arctic, Roy's Smiling Like a Sundog album, creating music and video content celebrating Churchill’s unique culture, and much more!

WR344: Wittenberg

A few weeks back, I asked listeners which local bands they'd like to hear on the show. One of the names that came up was [Wittenberg](http://wittenberg.bandzoogle.com/home), a new-on-the-scene duo I'd never heard of before. This episode is my conversation with both members of Wittenberg. We talk about their debut album, Perennial, about how the songs went from a bedroom solo project to a full-fledged band, incorporating backing tracks into their live shows, and much more. This episode is brought to you by our friends at [the Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/). Thanks to everyone who has supported the podcast thus far.
