Show Notes

This week's episode of Witchpolice Radio features special guest host Greg Arcade (filling in for Rob). All kinds of madness ensues. The theme for episode #9 is "Ruined," which seems weird until you realize it can from a random word generator. We try our best to associate songs with the theme and ended up playing some really good stuff. Lots of reminiscing about the good old days on this one

WR237: FF1

First off, a disclaimer: this isn't a political show. We've been interviewing local musicians since 2012, and even when we stray from that topic, it's always tied in to the local scene, and this is no exception. This week, our guests are **Omar Kinnarath** and **Ryan Nash** of **[Fascist-Free Treaty 1](https://www.facebook.com/fascistfree1/) ** (or **FF1** ). They're veterans of the local punk/hardcore scene (Ryan is a regular guest on the show with his band **[Union Stockyards](https://unionstockyards.bandcamp.com/)** ) who are leading the fight against racism on the streets of Winnipeg. We talk about how coming up in the local punk scene helped solidify their political views and values, and how the inclusive attitude of Winnipeg's DIY punk rock continues to inform what they do. When I teased this episode a few weeks ago, I got a raft of negative comments on social media from white nationalists, Islamophobes, and assorted 'alt-right' types -- many of whom weren't even _Canadian_ , let alone from Winnipeg -- so this is just a heads-up that there's going to be zero tolerance for that shit going forward. If you don't like some of the ideas floated in this episode, take it up directly with FF1. This podcast, and its associated social media, is not a forum to spread hatred. It's an interview show. About music. Next week there's a completely apolitical discussion about jazz, for example. Any bullshit comments will be deleted and commenters will be banned and reported. With that out of the way... in fitting with our usual format, there are songs sprinkled throughout the episode. These are all from local bands (including **[Propagandhi](https://propagandhi.com/)** , **[I-Spy](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXgGqYpZzVg), [Rogue ...

WR056: Greg Rekus

Welcome to 2014! To start things off the right way, we’re joined this week by folk-punk touring machine Greg Rekus (ex-High Five Drive) as he prepares for the release of his second solo record, Punkoustic, which comes out tonight at a CD release show! Greg talked the “money” theme with all three hosts and performed live at the end of the episode.   We've been familiar with Greg's music since way back in the Lacking Intelligence days of the late 90s, and he's always been an important part of the local music scene, so it was a pleasure to have him on the show. Check it out, and check out Punkoustic, which is being released by our pals at the DEAFWISH label. ...

WR209: iansucks

Just a warning on this one: the audio is pretty rough. It was recorded above a venue while a metal band rehearsed in the next room. It is what it is… a really fun, strange conversation with ¾ of very, very sad art-pop (glamour pop?) act iansucks, while some other band bashes away in the background. We talk (at length) about which audiobooks to listen to on tour, the band’s excellent new album (Don't Give in to the Bad Feelings), and a lot more. ...
