If you haven’t yet, be sure to subscribe to the show on iTunes. This week’s show was about eating and dancing, but not about eating while dancing, which would probably be uncomfortable and wouldn’t turn out well for anyone. Ryan and Karen... | Continue reading article

Listen here or in iTunes. Katie and Karen held it down in the studio this week. They started the show off with the first in a recurring series of chats about local politics. This week’s iteration brought news that Ottawa’s Planning Committee has approved a 45-story tower called Icon that is slotted for Little Italy. Though there are still plenty of roadblocks in the way, this brings the neighbourhood-changing tower one step closer to being a reality. Next, our hosts were joined with members of local “ouija-rock” band The Yips... | Continue reading article

Listen here or in iTunes. Ryan and Karen opened the show this week with a phone interview with Jesse Alberto, proprietor of the recently opened House of Barons barber shop. The shop on Sussex brings some previously scarce men’s grooming services to Ottawa, like straight blade shaves and shoe-shining while you wait. Our hosts then chatted with Michael Wallack of Wallack’s Art Supplies and Sharif Virani of Creative Mornings about Art Throb, a night of music and interactive art in support of the Ottawa School of Art (OSA) and School of Photographic Arts:... | Continue reading article

Listen here or in iTunes. This week’s show hosts were joined by Jeremy Dias, who filled us in about this year’s Jer’s Vision/International Day of Pink Gala on April 10. This is the eighth year of the locally grown anti-homophobia campaign, and what better way to celebrate than by heading to the gala at the Government Conference Centre at 6 pm? 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

Listen here or on iTunes. It was foodie madness on the show this week, and Ryan and Jared were joined for the whole show by foodiePrints‘ own Don Chow. 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
