  • Hockey season is upon us, which makes this a great time to introduce you to Carl Landra and Joel Schnell, co-hosts of The 4th Line Podcast.

    The 4th Line follows the weekly happenings in the NHL. It is the creation of a couple of friends who wanted to make a show that they would love listening to. Though they live in Calgary, neither is a Flames fan: Landra cheers for the Colorado Avalanche, and Schnell supports the Toronto Maple Leafs. In addition to listening to their show, check out the website for an active blog that brings in writers from North America and Europe to write about hockey.

    Fans of the Red Deer Rebels and other Western Hockey League teams may also enjoy The 4th Line’s spinoff show, The 4th Line WHLCast, another member of the Alberta Podcast Network. Landra hosts that podcast with Seattle’s Andy Eide and Calgary’s Ryan Pike.

    Landra and Schnell are very passionate about hockey, without being overly reverent, as you’ll be able to tell from their answers:

    1. What will people get out of listening to your show?

      A. The 4th Line Podcast has a no-finesse take on the NHL. In typical 4th-line fashion, we do whatever it takes to bring the best podcast. While our listeners will get our thoughts on the latest NHL news, we bring a a variety of games and regular segments that keep things fresh and fun.
    2. How did you and your co-host meet?
      A. We met over a game of poker — Carl in a Blue Jays hat, Joel in a Yankees hat. To quote Carl: “Sorry, I can never be friends with a Yankees fan.” Over 10 years later, he might be wrong.
    3. Why do you think people enjoy podcasts?
      A. Podcasts are a way to always be learning, gaining knowledge, expanding your understanding, and having a laugh. With a wide range of podcasts available, there is always something for everyone.
    4. Q. Do you have any unusual hobbies or talents that may surprise your listeners?
      Archery. Maybe that’s surprising?
    5. Q. What’s on your music playlist right now?
      A. Usually something country. A mix of Eric Church and Jason Aldean is a good start.

      Q. If you could have any guest on your show, who would you choose?
      A. Alexander Ovechkin would be great to have on the show. To know the stories behind the Stanley Cup celebration, if he can even tell them, would be a great thing to bring our listeners!
    6. What has been your favourite episode so far and why?
      A. Our Captain’s Royal Rumble episode was a turning point for us. It solidified for us that what we were doing resonated with our listeners, even if some people didn’t enjoy it.

    Ponoka RCMP Integrated Traffic Unit on scene at fatal motor vehicle collision on QEII

    Ponoka County, Alberta – The Ponoka Integrated Traffic Unit, is on scene with emergency services at a three vehicle collision which has resulted in the death of a 46-year-old male.

    At 10:25 p.m. on October 12, RCMP were dispatched to a serious motor vehicle collision northbound on the QEII at the Highway 53 overpass.  A pick up truck hauling a utility trailer collided with a mini-van and an SUV, all of which were northbound.  The mini van caught on fire and the male driver of the mini van remained trapped in the vehicle and succumbed to injuries received.  The male driver of the pick up truck was not injured and the female driver of the SUV was transported to hospital via ground ambulance, with non life threatening injuries.

    An RCMP collision analyst has attended to conduct an investigation. RCMP and Sheriffs remain on scene to assist with traffic.  Northbound traffic is being briefly diverted at the overpass but remains flowing and southbound traffic is not affected.

    Weather is considered to a be contributing factor in this collision.  Further information is not available at this time.
