Show Notes

I got nerdy about music and podcasting on this episode with Corey Toews of the Geekspin Podcast — a Winnipeg-based interview show that focuses on geek music around the world in all of its forms.

It's a fun conversation about filk music (which is, apparently, a real thing), whether GWAR fits the geek criteria, nerd shit going mainstream, the connection between Geekspin and fellow local podcasters SeanGeek, and much more!

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

WR109: Last Panel Podcast / National Music Centre

It's a packed house in the Blanket Fort as hosts Sam, Jon and Rob are together again to talk "brain" songs with guest **Julijana Capone** and **Jamie Cote**. A former Winnipegger, Julijana is now with the **[National Music Centre](http://www.nmc.ca/)** , a fantastic museum (and much more) based in Calgary. The NMC is working toward a massive project launch in 2016, so Julijana fills us in on some of details.

WR362: Sister Grimace

Talkin' lyricism in hip-hop at the food court with rapper/producer [Sister Grimace](http://soundcloud.com/gr1m4ce)! I tend to crap on a lot of new hip-hop coming out these days, so it's rare for me to find an artist – especially locally – whose work grabs me the same way the '90s/early '00s stuff did. When I heard Sister Grimace, however, I was pleasantly surprised. We have a really fun conversation about the importance of lyrics, about finding confidence as an artist, and much more. This epsiode was brought to you by our friends at the [SUNWOLF](http://thesunwolflabel.com/) label, who are releasing the debut by Katie & the Wolves March. 22, as well as by Winnipeg’s finest venue, the [Park Theatre](http:///myparktheatre.com/).
