Edmonton's non-pirate radio

Share us!

pirateradioI had a few wonderful conversations this evening, involving some wonderful people who are so replete with wonderful ideas that it’s hard to believe the planet isn’t a better place JUST BECAUSE OF THEIR EXISTENCE. Yeah, they both smell great.

I spoke with my dear friend @andrealown over Skype tonight about the re-purposing of a blog we created last fall in Toronto, this time with a sharpened focus and eventually visual identity and branding. But that’s not what I want to talk about in this post, because I also met with @scottybomb at Next Act for a beer and a discussion about the creation of a loosely-Edmonton-focused podcast which would feature local guests, and topics that we enjoy and think others will too.

Scott and I had mused about this several tweetups ago, when we had occasion to catch up from our commonly held days at the U of A‘s student newspaper, the Gateway. I’d expressed interested in starting a podcast, and Scott — having had experience producing several — was interested in doing one more consistently and covering his own personal interests.

Then we didn’t really talk about it for a few months.

BUT THEN we started talking about it a few weeks ago, and we were finally able to meet about it tonight. And if the stars align, in the next few weeks, we’ll have launched our inaugural podcast, which we’re hoping will include minor celebrities and other high-larity. But before any of that actually happens, the show needs a name. And we need your help.

We created a shortlist of names, that we certainly aren’t married to. We’d ask you to vote on your favourite, and if you think they all suck, suggest an alternative. Then it’s podcastin’ time!

    As hilarious as “Digitized Douchebaggery” is, I’ll throw my vote behind “The Rest of Edmonton.”

    We certainly welcome any other suggestions people have. This is what Scott and I were able to come up with after a quick brainstorm.
