Music's Mitosis #21 • Technical Kidman

June 8, 2016

Technical indeed. This prog/Industrial band is so sharp and tight they border on electro. That said there is a human element that shines through the machines and their song writing is far more interesting than any formulaic dance music. They have a new album out which you can get here: Something Stranger Coming on the Horizon and the play Youngnesse they did the music for is on stage now at Festival OFFTA in Montreal! 

Edge of the City #167 • What are we doin’?

May 28, 2016

With established sketch comedy festivals and burgeoning local sketch scenes in our country’s largest cities, sketch comedy is alive in well in Canada. We are asking artists from across the country: What are we doin’? An analysis of the direction of the Canadian sketch scene. Is all of this just for the good times or are we making bigger plans? Is there a sketch comedy “industry” to speak for? What can we do to support our communities and to help create opportunities for each other here and internationally. In partnership with Montreal Sketchfest, we present panel discussion about the present and future of sketch comedy in Canada, hosted by The Bruch Club’s Sasha Manoli, featuring Mark Little, Allison Hogg, Daniel Carin, Chris Sandiford, Amy Goodmurphy, and Ryan Steele.

Lots of gems in here, including how stress can be good for you (!), some radical notions about how to take on difficult emotions, and, of course, the jealousy kitten.

DeAnne Smith's Questionable at Best #70 • Asaf Gerchak with Questionable Advice

May 11, 2016

This week: Listener questions! It’s a special edition of Questionable Advice!

This week’s quote: “People will ask, ‘What are you into?’ ANYTHING! ANYTHING AT ALL! I’m open-minded to the point of being boring sexually.”

Comedian of note Asaf Gerchak joins me to answer your questions and solve your lives. We tell you how to de-stress, what not to eat in front of other people, where to meet age-appropriate lesbians, why you’re not friends with your exes, and what to name the excavators in your yard. Probably, though, you just need to get some eucalyptus in you. That oughta fix it.
