The What It Is podcast team proves that theatre is their expertise in an ep covering two theatrical presentations currently playing in Edmonton including The Citadel Theatre’s Peter and the Starcatcher & U of A Studio Theatre’s World Premiere of Bright Burning. We have two new guests in Farren Timoteo & Andrea Rankin who are tracked down at The Citadel to discuss how theatre can be pretty special when it’s left simple. Then, returning to the show is Colleen Murphy who talks to Taylor about her big 12 person world premiere play at the University of Alberta. There’s lots of great chatter about art, life, and the amazing work of our local artists so get it in your ear holes!

It’s a short ep so waste no time and get it in your ear holes!

Time to talk podcasts on a podcast! In this episode Taylor is joined by Edmontonian podcasters Andrea Beça, German Villegas and Adam Rozenhart to discuss their own kick-ass shows as well as the crazy world of online media. We hear about podcasts that are significantly more focused than this one by getting the scoop on The Expats, That’s So Maven and Modern Manhood Podcast. Plus, Taylor puts the three online broadcasters to the test by making them fill in on the Arts News and the crew discusses embarrassing moments in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly Advice. Lots of laughter, insight and bragging (mainly from Taylor) in this ep so get it in dem ear holes!

The ganf talks about answering machines and gets into a rousing (and personal) round of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly – how will the Edmonton arts scene adapt to the changing arts-coverage landscape?

We are so back in the saddle post-Fringe and it’s not-even funny. Actually, this ep is pretty funny! We chat with music-man Jesse Northey and clown/dance-woman Julie Kiraly about Jesse’s band and Julie’s work as a producer of the all-new Edmonton Clown festival. Also covered are topics like the artist’s lifestyle, what authenticity in art means and having house guests that stay way too long. Taylor also says that this ep is the start of our 4th Season but it’s NOT! It’s the start of our 5TH SEASON! Holy crap. We’ve been doing this podcast thing a while so get it in your ear holes and see if we know what we are doing!
