Show Notes

As many of you know, I lost my voice recently, so I couldn't record as many interviews this week as I usually would. In order to not miss an episode, I decided to re-release one of the "lost" podcasts from 2014 -- an early Witchpolice recording that didn't get added to the current podcast feed.

This one was originally released as #83, featuring Joel "Beefdonut" Klaverkamp as our guest. It was selected based on your social media votes. I hope you dig it. It's in the show's old format, so if you're new to Witchpolice Radio, you're better off listening to a 2022 episode, but if you're looking for a fun throwback, here we are.

Here's what I said about it back in 2014:

This week, Sam and Rob hang out with longtime stalwart of the Winnipeg music scene, Joel Klaverkamp. In addition to 20+ years of work under the name Beefdonut (including an excellent new album), Joel has played with very recognizable names in the city's musical history, including The Hummers, Skingerbreadman ...and the legendary (only to us) band that convinced us DIY music was possible way back in the 90s, Alien Hybrid!

Jon was away for this episode, so we couldn't use our regular studio spot in his basement. This one was recorded in a spot Joel had access to "high above Winnipeg's historic Exchange District," so if you notice an inferior sound quality throughout, it's because we're not on home ice for this one.

Back to your regularly-scheduled content in a few days! Thanks, y'all!

WR397: Thick n' Sweaty

If this is your first time listening to Witchpolice Radio, turn back now! This isn't a regular interview with a local musician. It's a crossover episode with my friends Stefan and Shena of the brand-new [Thick n' Sweaty]( podcast, so the regular format is pretty much thrown out the window. We talk podcasting, Stefan’s history as a wrestler, as host of the now-defunct [Ever Sick Podcast]( and current gig in country music radio... how Thick n’ Sweaty got started, how Shena became interested in podcasting, their dynamic as a couple who host a show together, etc. If you want to listen to some pals hanging out on a back porch and talking shit, this is an episode for you. If you want the more journalistic style that's typical of the podcast, check out the [previous episode](, an interview with country singer Quinton Blair. Apologies for the microphone pops in the intro. This episode is brought to you by [Howl at the Moon](http://, Manitoba’s newest and most exciting country music festival, July 25-27, and by our pals at [The Park Theatre]( Don’t forget to support our friends at [Dub Ditch Picnic](, who are trying to clear out as much stock as possible to [cover some medical costs]( ...
