Tim Haverluck is an old friend and a semi-frequent guest on the podcast. He was one of our [first-ever guests](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/351c2661f276f4L/) back in 2013, and has been very busy since. His band [The Tims](http://www.facebook.com/THE-TIMS-551062651593968) recently came off their first tour, and are still taking advantage of the buzz surrounding their debut full-length, [Ruff Custy](http://thetims1.bandcamp.com/album/ruff-custy). I interviewed Tim via Skype, which is something I've been wanting to try with the (current era) of the podcast for quite some time, and I think it worked decently. Recording phoners gives me the opportunity to record even more content than I'm already doing, so stay tuned for more conversations like this (on top of all the in-person ones I do).

Jon, solo-hosting this week, is joined by two Jesses: returning guest Jesse Matas of the Crooked Brothers and Jesse Warkentin of Mahogany Frog. They talk the "sushi" theme and listen to a ton of crazy Japanese music. Matas, of course, is a long-time friend of the show who appeared on a two-part episode of the podcast earlier in the summer, and has a bunch of music on the blog. Warkentin, on the other hand, is a member of Jon's favourite local psych-y/rock-y/synth-y band. ...
Country singer [Greg Arcade](http://gregarcade.com/) is a very opinionated fella, so it’s always a fun conversation when he’s in the podcast — even if (maybe *because*?) we fundamentally disagree with each other on a lot of issues. I like that we are still pals after all these years despite that, and as always, Greg has big things going on as far as music. He’s performing (and nominated) at this year’s[Manitoba Country Music Association](http://www.manitobacma.com/news.php) awards next week, and is busy with [Golden Oak Record Co](http://www.goldenoakrecordcompany.com/)., next year’s Howl At The Moon Music Festival and more!
