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.

We avoided being murdered when we met up with singer-songwriter [Skylar Bouchard](https://www.skylarbouchard.com/) in a terrifying, pitch-black park to record this episode. Skylar is on the verge of releasing his debut EP (Thursday, Sept. 28), so he talks about the recording process, his work as a member of Two Socks, and much more. Hear a few advance cuts from the EP throughout the episode! ...

Chris talks about his spontaneous writing and recording process, his truly prolific output (a catalogue which has ballooned even further since this interview was recorded over a month ago), and some musings on the local music scene past and present.

On Jan. 4, they're hosting a special screening of 'best worst' cult classic _[The Room](https://www.facebook.com/events/1758241841147830/)_ , and Jan. 10-11 features a sing-along edition of 1986 David Bowie/Jim Henson masterpiece _[Labyrinth](https://www.facebook.com/events/297775190735915/)_.

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', 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 singer-songwriter [Joe Curtis](http://www.joecurtisband.com/). The audio you're about to hear is just my interview with Joe. To see the full Mom's House episode, which includes live performances, head down to [Young Media's website](http://weareyoungmedia.com/the-moms-house-sessions) or their [YouTube channel](http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDcPW3OBfNHoOitVKkGhSlQ) to check it out. It should be available on Sunday. ...
