  • 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.

    As Hair Massacure Returns for Another Year, Here’s A Moving Look at How it Began

  • On February 22, 2019, thousands of heads will be shaved in honour of the journey of sick children losing their hair due to chemotherapy.

    People will gather once again at the Toyota Mayfield Ice Palace at West Edmonton Mall to collectively shave their heads, raising money in support of Albertans facing cancer.

    The Hair Massacure is founded, supported and organized by The MacDonald Family, in honour of their daughter Kali, a childhood cancer survivor.

    The MacDonald family partners once again with the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada and supports Terry Fox Profyle, a Pediatric cancer research project.

    With the support of their partners, the family plans to scale Hair Massacure to the national level with the support of the Children’s Wish Foundation, continuing to raise funding for pediatric cancer research and for children with life threatening illnesses.

    Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada

    Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada is a 100% Canadian charity that grants the single-most heartfelt wishes of Canadian children diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. Every wish is as unique as the child making it.  In Alberta and the NWT, we grant a Wish every three days and approve around 180 new Wishes each year. Wish referrals can be made by anyone who has a child in their lives between the ages of 3-17 and meets the medical criteria. Become a supporter of the largest Wish granting organization in Canada today!

    Terry Fox Profyle

    For the first time in Canadian history, more than 30 pediatric cancer research and funding organizations have joined forces through Terry Fox PROFYLE, a pan-Canadian project to give children, adolescents and young adults who are out of conventional treatment options another chance to beat their cancer. Short for PRecision Oncology For Young peopLE, the Terry Fox Research Institute (TFRI) and these research and funding partners are working and fundraising together under a unique partnership that to date is providing a total of $16.4 million to molecularly profile the tumours of these patients, no matter where they live in Canada. For example, if Terry Fox had been diagnosed with cancer today, he would have been eligible for PROFYLE when the tumour returned and spread to his lungs. A $5-million investment by TFRI is the catalyst bringing together top scientists and clinicians, research centres, cancer charities and foundations at children’s hospitals across the country to create new hope for young people who need it the most.
