Duff](http://oddblock.ca/speaker/john-b-duff/)** and **[Chantel Marostica](http://oddblock.ca/speaker/chantel-marostica/)** , along with **Erick Casselman** (owner of the Park Theatre), to talk about the upcoming **[Oddblock Comedy Festival](http://oddblock.ca/)** , Aug. 27-30 in Winnipeg's South Osborne neighbourhood. Recorded in the spacious lobby of the **[Park Theatre](http://oddblock.ca/the-park-theatre/)** (hence the mild echo), the gang discusses the local comedy scene, 'making it' as a comedian, "gut" songs and more!

WR023: Jessika Ellement

This week's guest, Jessika Ellement, was the drummer in Filtered Reality way back in 1995 -- the first real band co-host Rob Crooks and I were ever members of. I've known her even longer, though, since way back in kindergarten, so it was awesome to have her on the show to talk about the (randomly-generated) "bleeds" theme.
