Savour the moment with Tomato Radio

Published

A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, and… a podcast? That may not have been the combination Omar Khayyam had in mind 900 years ago, but it works out deliciously on Tomato Radio.

The podcast is a spinoff of The Tomato (formerly City Palate), the magazine Mary Bailey started in Edmonton in 1996. She and Amanda LeNeve share a deep knowledge of wine, and they knew there were lots of fascinating food people to talk to in the city, so Tomato Radio was born in 2017.

The podcast comes out every two weeks. Some episodes feature interviews with chefs, restaurateurs, wine experts or others involved in the food scene. Other weeks are “what’s happening” episodes, which let listeners know about upcoming events, closings and openings, as well as recommendations for festive meals, seasonal drinks and the like. It’s bubbly and fun.

Let’s get a taste of Tomato Radio from LeNeve:

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

A. We talk to amazing members of Edmonton’s food community and also keep Edmontonians updated on food and drink happenings in town.

Q. How did you meet and how long have you known each other?

A. Mary and I met each other when I was a publicist for a cookbook publishing company and she was one of my media contacts. When I moved to Edmonton, I wanted to stay connected to the community, so I asked how I could get involved in her magazine. We worked on the magazine together for a number of years where she instilled a love of wine in me. We have bonded over that interest and have traveled to many places to learn about it together.

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

A. Sabring bottles of sparkling wine with a variety of tools (sabres, axes, etc.)

Q. What podcasts do you listen to and why?

A. We listen to a variety of podcasts, from international wine podcasts like I’ll Drink to That to our very own Alberta Podcast Network’s That’s a Thing?! We love hearing personal perspectives and the personality that comes across, especially on topics we’re passionate about.

Q. Why do you think people enjoy podcasts?

A. They tend to be informative and deep dives into their content areas. It’s nice to hear experts that aren’t necessarily endorsed by a media company. They’re everyday people who have interesting perspectives and experiences that are relatable and, most importantly, fun and approachable. I love the unpolished-ness of them.

Q. What has been your favourite episode so far?

A. Our interview with Teresa Spinelli. She is a pillar in the Edmonton food community and is an amazing business woman.

EPIC Podcast equips you to be prepared

Published

on

When disaster strikes, our ability to manage it depends a lot on the lessons we’ve learned from past incidents and experts in the field. EPIC Podcast brings those lessons to life.

EPIC stands for Emergency Preparedness in Canada, and that’s what the podcast delivers: current, relevant, Canadian content regarding disasters and their management.

Dr. Josh Bezanson and Grayson Cockett interview industry leaders, explore emerging research, and share practical tools of the trade. Their aim is to transfer knowledge to other emergency management professionals, but it’s pretty interesting stuff to regular folks, too. We all have a role in preventing bad things from happening, or mitigating the damage when they do happen.

Bezanson and Cockett are clearly passionate about what they do, and they have the qualifications to back up what they say. They are both members of Canada Task Force 2, the disaster response team based in Alberta. Bezanson is an emergency medicine resident who also has a journalism degree, and Cockett has a master’s degree in disaster and emergency management.  

The podcast usually comes out about once a month, but they’re planning a blitz for Emergency Preparedness Week starting May 6. So be prepared for that by subscribing!

In the meantime, let’s learn a little more about EPIC:

 

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

A. They’ll get to hear subject matter experts, disaster scholars, and industry leaders discuss ideas, trends, and recent developments in the field of disaster management from a uniquely Canadian perspective.


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

A. Enrico Quarantelli, a pioneer in disaster sociology.

Q. How did you and your co-host meet?

A. Through our various first-responder endeavours.

 

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

A. He died the way he lived… in a state of total disaster!

 

Q. What has been your favourite episode and why?

A. Our episode commemorating the 100-year anniversary of the Halifax explosion was particularly rewarding, as it truly was a formative event, and has so many rich lessons which are still relevant today.

Immerse yourself in The WorkNotWork Show and Not There Yet podcasts

Published

on

Podcasting has provided two different but complementary avenues of self-expression for Terence C. Gannon.

On The WorkNotWork Show, he satisfies his curiosity by interviewing people “those who have turned their passion into their profession, or have a job that we may envy them having or wonder how they managed to get.”

On Not There Yet, which was nominated for a Canadian Podcast Award this year, he shares his own observations in a series of “short essays podcasted from the second decade of the 21st century,” as his tagline says. “It’s totally eclectic — current events, history, personal opinion, popular culture.”

Both shows are beautifully produced, graced with a meticulous attention to detail and Gannon’s mellifluous voice. One can’t help but be transported with every new episode.

Let’s learn a little more about the man behind the mic:

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

A. Above all on The WorkNotWork Show, we hope to interest our audience in the subject of the interview and perhaps inspire them to pursue their own career dreams. Our hope for Not There Yet is that listeners will know and/or learn something they didn’t know before.


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

A. Tiger Woods. But my angle would be to title the episode “Eldrick T. Woods: Pro Golfer” and really focus on the arc of his entire life rather than gush about his golf prowess. Any regrets? What else might have you done? Did you ever felt your Dad pushed you too hard? Do you ever hate the game? That kind of thing.

 

Q.What podcasts do you listen to?

A. To be honest, not many, but only for lack of time. When traveling, my wife and I listen to Serial and Revisionist History.

 

Q. Do you have any unusual hobbies or talents?

A. I wish.


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

A. Nothing by Chance

 

Q.What has been your favourite episode and why?

A. For The WorkNotWork Show, Episode 009 with Robert ‘Scratch’ Mitchell. The first few minutes of that episode are the best I have produced. The words, music and pacing all just seem to come together. It always brings a lump to my throat.

 

For Not There Yet, my favourite is usually the most recent one, but if I had to pick one I’d say X-15. It’s a subject I find fascinating and it proved quite popular.

 

After that, I think Mustang, given that it was the most experimental in nature and touched on all my favourite subjects.
