WR305: Chenoa McKelvey and Jacob Letkeman at Mom's House

As many of you are likely aware, I've been guest-hosting a (video) show about local musicians from time to time. It's called '[Mom's House](http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDcPW3OBfNHoOitVKkGhSlQ)', and it's the brainchild of a group of up-and-coming Manitoba filmmakers called Young Media. We decided to use the interview portions of the episodes I host and release them in audio form as bonus podcasts! This first Witchpolice at Mom's House episode features a great conversation with local gypsy/Hot Club jazz duo [Chenoa McKelvey](http://www.facebook.com/chenoamckelveymusic/) and Jacob Letkeman. The audio you're about to hear is just my interview with Chenoa and Jacob. To see the full Mom's House episode, which includes live performances, head down to Young Media's website or their [YouTube channel](http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDcPW3OBfNHoOitVKkGhSlQ) to check it out. It should be available this weekend! Thanks to everyone who has supported the podcast thus far. Thanks to our supporters, we can keep churning out interviews twice a week! If you like the show, please head down to patreon.com/witchpolice, and for as little as $1 a month, you can help keep the lights on! ...

WR373: Trio Antipodes

[Trio Antipodes](http://store.cdbaby.com/Artist/TrioAntipodes) is a new jazz trio with some old familiar faces. Frequent Witchpolice guest [Keith Price](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/36b8a2de992aac/) has teamed up with his [Double Quartet](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/3544210612b466L/) bandmate [Jeff Presslaff](http://www.jeffpresslaff.com/), along with drummer [Graydon Cramer](http://www.facebook.com/graydoncramermusic). I caught them on the road from Edmonton where they were in the middle of a short tour to promote their new [Upside Downwards](http://store.cdbaby.com/cd/trioantipodes) record. Their (excellent) music aside, it's an interesting group in the sense that Keith recently moved to New Zealand, where he's teaching at a university. We talk about the difficulties of being a cross-continental band, the experimental nature of the album, and much more. This episode brought to you by our pals at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/)! Thanks to everyone who has supported the podcast thus far.
