Show Notes

This episode features a quick conversation with a stone cold Canadian legend: singer, actor, activist, and former Manitoban (but his heart is still here), Tom Jackson.

We talked about his powerful new single and the public conversation around residential schools, taking the high road when it comes to dealing with tragedy, Tom’s philosophy behind his activism and charity work, and much more!

WR398: Henry Beckwith

It's a phoner with former Winnipegger [Henry Beckwith](http://www.henrytours.ca/), currently based in Toronto and touring Canada and the world as a front-of-house audio guy and tour manager for an impressive list of nationally-known artists (his clients include Basia Bulat, Dan Mangan, Wintersleep, Terra Lightfoot, American Football, and more). Henry and I played in a short-lived reggae band together about 15 years ago, and it has been cool to watch his progress over the years (from afar) as he went from a touring musician to a sound guy at clubs to the guy who runs tings on the road for well-known acts. This episode is brought to you by [Howl at the Moon](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/).

WR513: Voyageuse

This episode features a chat with ‘punk noir’ duo [Voyageuse](http://www.instagram.com/voyageusevoyageusevoyageuse/), made up of Matt Powers ([Vampires](http://vampiresband.bandcamp.com/)) and Dana Moore ([Gt. Dane](http://gtdane.bandcamp.com/)). We talked about the level of individual responsibility each member of a two-piece band has on the overall sound, about going four months without rehearsing (due to the pandemic), and more! There's a bunch of controversy that has been stirring around this episode, so just check out the disclaimer in the intro. You won't hear any ads on this one, because I didn't want to inadvertently rope anyone else into the drama. Also, kind of hilariously, you hear crickets in the background throughout the episode, because it was recorded remotely and they were outside the city. That also contributes to the sketchiness (at times) of the audio connection, but it's still listenable.
