WR355: Shadez

It's a sit-down in a bar with the three MCs behind one of the city's iconic rap groups. The legendary [Shadez](http://www.instagram.com/shadesofblack_204/) are celebrating the [20th anniversary of their 'Comprehension' album](http://soundcloud.com/lenbowenmusic/shadez-ov-blac-comprehension-xx-anniversary-edition-mixed-by-dj-swift), and they talked about the good old days of their '90s heyday, the way the scene has changed, re-visiting these songs two decades later, and a lot more. Note: Since this was recorded in a bar, there's some shitty background noise that means the sound quality isn't amazing. It improves somewhat after the first few minutes (mainly due to moving the recorder), so please bear with it. One of the hazards of the have-mic-will-travel gig. Definitely a crucial interview despite that, though. This episode is brought to you by our friends at [the Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/) and by [Demedash Effect](http://www.demedasheffects.com/)s, a local company that makes hand-made guitar effect pedals like the glorious T-120 Videotape Echo. Thanks to everyone who has supported the podcast thus far. Thanks to supporters like you, we can keep churning out interviews twice a week!

WR397: Thick n' Sweaty

If this is your first time listening to Witchpolice Radio, turn back now! This isn't a regular interview with a local musician. It's a crossover episode with my friends Stefan and Shena of the brand-new [Thick n' Sweaty](http://thicknsweaty.podbean.com/) podcast, so the regular format is pretty much thrown out the window. We talk podcasting, Stefan’s history as a wrestler, as host of the now-defunct [Ever Sick Podcast](http://www.podbean.com/podcast-detail/yua2j-390a6/Ever-Sick%21-Podcast-with-Stefan-Richard) and current gig in country music radio... ...plus how Thick n’ Sweaty got started, how Shena became interested in podcasting, their dynamic as a couple who host a show together, etc. If you want to listen to some pals hanging out on a back porch and talking shit, this is an episode for you. If you want the more journalistic style that's typical of the podcast, check out the [previous episode](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/377cda13ed2bea/), an interview with country singer Quinton Blair. Apologies for the microphone pops in the intro. This episode is brought to you by [Howl at the Moon](http://http://howlatthemoonfest.com/), Manitoba’s newest and most exciting country music festival, July 25-27, and by our pals at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/). Don’t forget to support our friends at [Dub Ditch Picnic](http://dubditchpicnic.bandcamp.com/), who are trying to clear out as much stock as possible to [cover some medical costs](http://www.facebook.com/crizwell/posts/10156105481525636). ...

WR475: Len Bowen

...so this isn't your regular podcast episode. It's actually an interview I did the other day on Instagram live with Winnipeg rap legend [Len Bowen](http://www.instagram.com/lenbowen_music/). Because I record everything, of course I recorded this too, and here it is in podcast form. It was an interesting experiment and a fun conversation with one of Winnipeg’s finest about his upcoming new project, his work with local hip-hop icons [Shadez](http://soundcloud.com/lenbowenmusic/shadez-ov-blac-comprehension-xx-anniversary-edition-mixed-by-dj-swift), and a whole lot more. This episode is brought to you by our friends at [the Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/), and by [Trevor Fisher](http://www.linkedin.com/in/fishertrevor) of Way2Wealth Management.
