Show Notes

Great conversation with Jaymie Von Riesen of alt-folk project Well Sister about her haunting new LP, ‘Katabasis’!

WR204: Glen Murray

If you're a longtime listener to the podcast, you're probably familiar with the name Jon Askholm. Jon is a founding co-host of Witchpolice Radio, who appeared on approximately 90 episodes, mainly from 2012-15. He's also 1/3 of experimental pop act Glen Murray. We joined Jon and bandmates Sam Koulack (also a past guest on the show) and David Warkentin in a basement that looks alarmingly like the old Blanket Fort jamspace where we recorded a hefty chunk of Witchpolice Radio's back catalogue (but in a different house). The fellas talked about their hard-to-define sound, their slow pace of recording and releasing music, the hilarious band name (if you're from Winnipeg, anyway) and more. Plus they played four live songs! ...

WR732: Election Special with Natalie Smith and Omar Kinnarath

There’s a municipal election happening, Winnipeg, and as your friendly neighbourhood music podcast, I sat down with a couple of folks from the local music scene who happen to be running for council.Stay tuned for a great conversation with Omar Kinnarath (who you may remember from local hardcore bands like Intafada and Rogue Nation back in the day), and Natalie Smith (ex-Silence Kit, now in Mulligrub).As I’ve said in EVERY election-themed show I’ve done over the years, I’m not endorsing either candidate (I’m not in their wards anyway) or anyone else. Please read up on the candidates in your area and vote for whoever best represents you. Just vote.Back to your regularly-scheduled programming next episode! Note: I say "ridings" instead of "wards" about a billion times on this episode. Oops.  Huge thanks to everyone who supports the podcast on Patreon!

WR297: The Sturgeons

Folk/roots brother act [The Sturgeons](http://www.the-sturgeons.com/) are no strangers to Witchpolice Radio -- they appeared a few years back as members of [Rory Verbrugge and the Ruckus](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/3529650d0c4e50L/) -- but this time they're on the show to talk about their own project and their excellent new album, Black and White. This one was a quick interview over the lunch hour at the mall, so the usual disclaimer applies: there's a decent amount of background noise... and at various points, one of the Sturgeons moves away from the mic. One of the hazards of what is essentially guerrilla podcasting in public! However, it's a great conversation, and there are four tracks from the new record in the episode as well. Thanks to everyone who has supported the podcast thus far. Thanks to supporters like the Winnipeg Music Project, we can keep churning out interviews twice a week! If you like the show, please head down to [patreon.com/witchpolice](http://www.patreon.com/witchpolice), and for as little as $1 a month, you can help keep the lights on! This episode is brought to you by our friends at [the Park Theatre](http://http://www.myparktheatre.com/), who have a whole calendar of great upcoming shows.
