Next, Ryan chatted with A Tribe Called Red‘s Bear Witness about their Spirit Tracks party, an event that happened as part of Electric Fields. To round things out, Max... | Continue reading article

In a week filled with foodie news, Algonquin College announced a new bursary for culinary excellence in honour of former Ottawa Citizen food editor Ron Eade. Part of the show focused on the news that Art-Is-In Bakery will be rolling back their wholesale operations, meaning that you won’t be seeing their bread on every menu in town going forward. In other big... | Continue reading article

Apartment613 Live: The bestest and awesomest of 2012

Written by on

Listen here or on iTunes. Craft beer. The city’s festival scene. Disappearing bookstores. And the inaugural Nuit Blanche. Those were some of the top stories of 2012, at least according to the various ne’er-do-wells and miscreants that serve as editors here at Apartment613.

Along with our own mellifluous voices, this week’s podcast also features some of our favourite interviews from the past 12 months — we revisit the closure of Xpress, the controversy over the Nepean Redskins... | Continue reading article
