Listen here, or in iTunes! This week, Karen takes to the airwaves solo, narrowly avoiding any long rambles in the absence of her co-hosts. The show kicks off with music from Hey Ocean, Parlovr, The Most Loyals and Shout Out Out Out Out, before heading into Chris and Yaz’s Kingston food adventure – which happened right here in Ottawa! From there, we enter O-town Hoedown territory with an interview with Lefty McRighty and hear some tunes from Jack Pine and the Fire. After that? Music from Mother Mother and a... | Continue reading article

This week, Karen and Trevor take to the airwaves a little tardily but oh-so-awesomely.

Listen here or on iTunes. This week, Trevor and Jared join forces to bring you a show chock-full of goodness. First up is an interview with Ian Campeau, who has recently been making headlines with his campaign to change the name of the Nepean Redskins. His stance against the team’s name has been churning up no little amount of controversy, and Campeau recently received the support of the Assembly of First Nations.

This week’s show is jammed full of interviews and topical discussion! Listen to it here or on iTunes! Once again, Jared takes the reigns as the host of this week’s Apt613 Live.

This week on Apt613 Live on CHUO 89.1 FM, we take to the airwaves with a decisively pop theme. No, not the music. Or the beverage. Instead, we’ve got a special mix by the Apt613 Live House Band, and an analysis of Ottawa’s newest pop-tart. Before that, however, we chat with Catherine Landry, one of the masterminds behind Eat Me! – a restaurant guide set to come out in September featuring some of Ottawa’s best fare. And? We caught her live on location at the new Tacolot. (Don’t worry, Hintonburgers,... | Continue reading article
Listen here, or on iTunes. Note: the Paper Kindle Club is this Sunday, not Saturday as is reported in this podcast. This week on Apt613 Live, Jared hosts the entire show by himself! In addition to his unreasonably strange antics, we were able to snag two interviews this week. The first is with Gerry Paquette, Professor of Game Development at Algonquin College. In addition to other disciplines, Paquette teaches Algonquin game dev students about board games, something we are Apt613 are generally fairly enthusiastic about (though Katie often proclaims her annoyance with... | Continue reading article
Apt613 Live is dropping two new shows this week. On the first, we play some music from this year’s Bluesfest, Karen interviews Greg Searle from Harvest Noir, the guys behind 327 Wine Bar on Somerset. And we do it all without the guiding hands or smooth sultry voices of Ryan or Trevor. Despite our impediments, we prevail, delivering wacky humour and informative, earnest discussion. Download the MP3 here. On the second, this week’s edition, Ryan, Karen and Jared talk to Catherine Langois from Sandbanks Winery, the Burlesque Assassins, Coffee with... | Continue reading article
