S6E11: Nostalgia (now with more Scrooge & Simpsons)

Happy—erm—Merry Christmas! Every. One. (Photo Ian Jackson/EPIC Photography)

We head to the Citadel to preview the shiny new production of A Christmas Carol, and then to another memory-soaked romp through The Simpsons’ greatest hits in Mr. Burns: a post-electric play. It’s a nostalgic time of the decade, isn’t it?

Introducing: A Tale of Two Weeklies

Like our new show art? It was designed by Michael Nunweiler
(he also designed the art for I Don’t Get It)

We have been working for the past year to produce a brand new limited-run podcast series: A Tale of Two Weeklies is about the historical rivalry of Edmonton’s two alternative weekly papers, SEE Magazine and Vue Weekly.

You can subscribe to the series at http://taleoftwoweeklies.ca. But for now, we wanted to share a piece of it with our IDGI subscribers. Here’s Episode One of A Tale of Two Weeklies

S6E10: Revolt! Revolt! (with pie)

Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. turns feminism on its head in the
University of Alberta’s Studio Theatre season.

Paul and Fawnda attempt to make the “award-winning” pie recipe handed out at the Jube for Broadway Across Canada’s Waitress as they discuss the hyper-sweet and delightfully raunchy sentiments of the show. And they can’t stop thinking about the language-lashing in Studio Theatre’s Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. In fact, they might just go see it again.

Note: Spoilers on Waitress start around the 11:00 mark.

In this episode we step into the quirky, continent-traversing world of Stewart Lemoine’s latest play, A Likely Story. Then, Paul takes in a bit of #NXTFST, and Fawnda takes a road trip to see Marienbad at TDT (Toronto Dance Theatre), and we muse on the Sterling Awards’ new non-gendered acting categories. Oh, and that new thing they’re building in Hawrelak Park. How big of a deal is that, really?
