Show Notes

It was really lovely to reconnect on this episode with my old friends (going back to elementary school!) Sandy Taronno and David Pankratz about their latest project, New Wales!

We talked about their quarter-century of musical collaboration (from teenage basement projects through Quinzy and beyond) and why it works, the ‘popification’ of music, their monthly single releases, Wolseley, and so much more!

This episode brought to you by our pals at Devine Shirt Company.

WR631: Bobby Dove

I was really excited about interviewing Brandon (by way of Montreal) country troubadour Bobby Dove, whose outstanding ‘Hopeless Romantic’ LP is easily one of my favourites of the year so far.We talked about the transition from big-city Quebec to small-town Manitoba, releasing an album while the world was locked down, bummer songs, THAT VOICE, and much more.

In memoriam: John B. Duff

(This episode was originally released in August 2015) I’ll be the first to admit I’m not very hip to the local comedy scene, but way back in 2015, [we did an episode](http://witchpolice.com/e/wr141-oddblock-comedy-festival-354033ed1f98a2L/) about the then-new Oddblock Comedy Festival. One of the guests on that episode was comedian John B. Duff. You may have heard that John passed away from cancer recently, so I’m re-releasing this episode. I barely knew him, but he was a really funny guy, and – based on all the tributes I’ve been seeing on social media over the past few days – clearly a huge figure in the local community. Please note this is in the old format of the show, and the audio quality is godawful, but I think it’s important to re-release episodes when guests pass (which is happening entirely too often lately). I hope you enjoy this episode despite its (many) technical flaws. Fuck cancer. RIP Mr. Duff. ...

WR551: Ryan McMahon / Unscripted Moments live from MBPodFest

We're almost at the end (mercifully) of 2020, so here's something fun to close out the year. It's a panel I moderated at this year's [Manitoba Podcast Festival](https://www.facebook.com/mbpodfest/), which was held virtually due to the pandemic. The panel featured [Ryan McMahon](http://www.rmcomedy.com/) ([Thunder Bay](https://www.canadaland.com/shows/thunder-bay/),[ Red Man Laughing](https://www.indianandcowboy.com/red-man-laughing-podcast)), alongside Keith and Greg from Unscripted Moments: A Podcast About Propagandhi. There's a lot of 'inside baseball' on this one about podcasting -- the topic is growing and developing an audience -- but I think it's of interest to Witchpolice listeners as well. Back to your regularly-scheduled programming next week! Happy New Year! Huge thanks to everyone who supports the podcast on [Patreon](http://www.patreon.com/witchpolice).
