  • Imagine loving a team so much that you do a podcast about it. And then the team folds. What do you do?

    If you’re soccer fans Nathan Terlesky and Adam Huber, you keep going. Your show, called Loyal Company of the River Valley, goes on. You get involved in the movement to resurrect FC Edmonton, and you campaign to get it into the new Canadian Premier League. You push ticket sales, and you help start a new supporters group, and you keep the flame alive until your team is on the pitch again.

    With their cry of “Fear no foe!” these guys are fierce (but nice) fans. And they can’t wait until spring comes, when FC Edmonton will start battling Calgary’s Cavalry FC and the rest of the teams in the new league.

    Let’s learn a little more about Loyal Company of the River Valley, via co-host Terlesky:

    What will people get out of listening to your podcast?

    A. I believe that we offer an unique perspective on both Canadian soccer and FC Edmonton. We have been able to bring in a variety of interesting and meaningful guests. I think people will gain a new appreciation for the sport, and the local impact, through our podcast.

    How did you meet your co-host?

    A. Adam and I met in 2011 through our love of soccer. We joined the same supporters group, and after several years, ended up leaving that group and becoming closer friends. We started the podcast shortly after, and have been podcasting together for over three years now.

    If you could have any guest on your show, who would you ask?

    A. Someone higher up in Canada soccer would be amazing, like John Herdman, coach of the national team. We have been very fortunate in having several players, staff and coaches on over the years.

    Why do you think people enjoy podcasts

    A. Podcasts allow people to find engaging hosts and a wide variety of topics that you might not find on traditional radio.

    Write your own epitaph — what would it say?

    A. Always ready to kick a ball or drink a pint.

    What has been your favourite episode so far?

    A. My personal favourite was our interview with Tim Adams and Leah Cavanagh from Free Footie. They were very humble people, despite having run a very successful program for youth for years.

    Join ‘a mini book club for the ears’ with The Read-Along!

  • Say you want the book-club experience without the pressure of reading a whole book on deadline, and without the hassle of gathering in someone’s living room. What do you do?

    You subscribe to The Read-Along, that’s what. You’ll find yourself on “a journey through a good book, one chapter at a time,” with the husband-and-wife team of Anita and Scott C. Bourgeois.

    Each episode is based on a chapter, so you only have to read a little bit at a time. The hosts don’t read ahead, so you don’t have to worry about spoilers, as long as you read the chapter before listening to the episode. They are also skilled in banter and approach the podcast with joy, so the journey is a lot of fun.

    They are currently in the middle of Jasmine Gower’s Moonshine, a fantasy novel set in a world similar to 1920’s Chicago, but with magic. You can join them on this book, or look back at their previous titles, and proceed at your own pace — that’s the beauty of the podcast!

    Let’s learn a little more about the bookworms behind the show:

     

    Q. What will people get out of listening to your podcast?

    A. A low-commitment book club, motivation to read, story and character analysis, and a little humour.

    Q. If you could have any guest on your show, who would you want and why?

    A. We’ve discussed trying to get one of our featured authors on the show.

    Q. Do you have any unusual hobbies or talents that would surprise your listeners? 

    A. Podcasting! We’re also big nerds who love tabletop games.

    Q. What podcasts do you listen to?

    A. Ken & Robin Talk About Stuff, The Greatest Generation: DS9, The Undad, Modern Manhood, I Have Some Notes, Press Start to Join, The Bugle and Lore are all regulars, but lots of other podcasts as well.

    Q.Write your own epitaph — what would it say? 

    A. They came. They read. They talked about it.

    Q. What has been your favourite episode and why?

    A. Episode 62, “Murder Arithmetic.” We go Full Book Club on The Word is Murder by Anthony Horowitz in our final overview of the book, after the weekly chapter-by-chapter read-through. Lots of great discussion.

    Indulge your nerdiness with Press Start to Join

  • Just how geeky are the hosts of Press Start to Join, the show that promises “more geekery than you can shake a joystick at”?

    Well, for one thing, Josh Shenfield and Alan Techsmith started podcasting in 2015, way before podcasting hit the mainstream. For another, they never run out of things to nerd out about, whether it be video games, board games, tech security, comics, virtual reality or anything else in the geek universe.

    In addition to their weekly show covering current events on those topics, they do a monthly deep dive into video game history, exploring the origins and evolution of various games, companies or franchises. Be sure to catch the first episode of every month, too, for a complete list of free video games you can download.

    Let’s press start on this Q&A with the PS2J team:

    How did you meet?

    A. We went to high school together, bonded over shared geekery, and just never stopped talking about it.

    Do you have any unusual hobbies or talents that would surprise your listeners? 

    A. Alan has an eerie memory for useless numbers, and Josh is great at painting miniatures.

    What podcasts do you listen to?

    A. Alan: My Brother, My Brother, and Me; Fandalites; The Adventure Zone; Hey Riddle Riddle; Swindled; Til Death Do Us Blart.

    Josh: This Week in Tech; Star Wars Minute; How Did This Get Made; Podzilla1985; Lore; Stuff You Should Know; Comedy Bang Bang.

    If you could have any guest on your show, who would you want and why?

    A. Josh: Cosplayer and YouTuber Jessica Nigri or animator Ross O’Donovan, because they both seem like they’d be a lot of fun to talk to.

    Alan: Game designer Chris Perkins, because he’s led such an interesting life (and maybe we could convince him to Dungeon Master for us).

    Write your own epitaph — what would it say and why?

    A. Here Lies Josh — He doubted he could do anything and ended up doing it all just fine.

    RIP Alan — He knew just enough to be dangerous.

    What has been your favourite episode so far?
    A. Always next one, because it’s going to be the best yet! (But, for the purposes of this question, here’s the history episode on Tetris.)

    Over the next several weeks, Todayville will introduce you to members of the Alberta Podcast Network, so you can invite even more Alberta-made podcasts into your ears! You can find Press Start to Join and dozens of other shows at albertapodcastnetwork.com.
