VIDEO, THEN AUDIO INTERVIEW PODCAST | NOW OFFLINE

41 EPISODES | ENGLISH | FEBRUARY TO AUGUST 2018

Description: An interview/conversation podcast, hosted by Canadian singer/songwriter Todd Donald and friends, showcasing artists & performers in the Waterloo Region.

It was January 2018 and I was DESPERATE to re-connect with the local arts. Throughout this year I also felt the distance between what I could do, as awesome as it is, and the attention of the stepford-wives-ish new crowd saying "We're Kitchener Arts & Culture". It was extremely hard to wrestle with that impossible ignorance, though I made the mistake of trying to, both internally and externally. I did succeed in having great conversations with wonderful friends, both old and new! So, no regrets. The transition from Summer to Autumn, meant starting a new podcast.. that would become the long-running Todd Donald Show.

5 USELESS FACTS:

1. More than half of the episodes were recorded on-location somewhere.

2. All guests, or at the very least Todd, were served delicious coffee from local roasters.

3. TC was a promotional partner of the Summer Lights festival in 2018 and recorded a 2-part episode live at the event, co-hosted by local artist, Katy Topham.

4. With Katy Topham, TC's 2nd occasional co-host Darel Dean, was introduced as a guest.

5. TC made a Summer Mixtape with another local podcast '2 Dimes on a Grapevine' and while both TC and 2D are sadly no longer podcasts, the Spotify playlist lives!
