Winnipeg rapper/poet/mentor/administrator/multi-hyphenate Nestor Wynrush is back on the show to talk about an ambitious new live mixtape project, taking place Sept. 16 at the West End Cultural Centre!
The project, in collaboration with Wall to Wall Mural and Culture Festival and organizations including the Winnipeg Art Gallery, includes intergenerational collaborations between established and emerging local artists.
Really insightful conversation. This episode also features music by artists connected to the event (selected by Ness), including Anthony OKS, Super Duty Tough Work, JayWood, and Bluebloods.
Want to hear more of Ness? He's on the following episodes as a guest: #019 (April 2013), #036 (Aug. 2013), #042 (Sept. 2013), #150 (Oct. 2015), #287 (May 2018). He hosted on #101 (Nov. 2014), #167 (Feb. 2016), and there's probably more I'm forgetting about.

This week, Sam and Ryan are joined by comedians **[John B. 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! Along the way, Sam demonstrates his complete ignorance about the 'burggoinging' (or something) Winnipeg comedy scene in particular and stand-up in general. We all learn a thing or two. ...
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/).
