It's another Manitoba-adjacent episode: a conversation with Toronto (by way of Winnipeg, of course) solo guitarist John Testar!

WR710: Poodle Paddle

I had a great conversation with 'punk/indie/twee/screaming/who knows' duo Poodle Paddle, about finding the sweet spot between heavy and soft, playing house shows, changing their vibe (and number of band members!) from show to show, and the power of DIY.Stay tuned.
