I Don’t Get It is an award-winning podcast that offers a critical perspective on performances of all kinds happening in Edmonton and beyond. I Don’t Get It is produced by Paul Blinov, Fawnda Mithrush, and Andrew Paul. Our theme music is “Mountain Time” by Ghibli. The show is recorded in Edmonton Community Foundation‘s podcast studio in, you guessed it, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Paul is the former arts/film editor of Vue Weekly, Edmonton’s alternative newspaper. His writing focuses mostly on music and theatre (and now dance, too), and beyond Vue, has been published in the National Post, Canadian Medical Association Journal, and improvisation.ca. Paul is also a member of the Polaris Prize Jury.
Fawnda is the current Executive Director of LitFest: Canada’s only nonfiction festival. She has played the role of General Manager for two of Edmonton’s most storied theatre companies (Theatre Network and the outdoor Freewill Shakespeare Festival), and has penned stories and profiles for Avenue Magazine, Vue Weekly, and Edmonton Journal, among others. A former editor for the now defunct SEE Magazine, she now moonlights as a publicist for a variety of arts and non-profit organizations. Born and raised in Edmonton, she enjoys being a booster of the city’s writers, dancers, and other artsy folk. She also has a fondness for cheese, travel, and the BBC.
Andrew is a graduate of the MacEwan University Journalism Program. These days he toils away in the wonderful world of non-profit communications. He is the publicist for Rapid Fire Theatre and the Freewill Shakespeare Festival. He’s also a communications advisor at Edmonton Community Foundation where he co-hosts The Well-Endowed Podcast. Andrew is the former web and features editor of SEE Magazine, and editorial intern and freelancer at Avenue Magazine.
