74 – The Island (2005) w. Jodie McRobbie & Sophie Gareau-Brennan

The future is now! It’s 2019 so Jodie McRobbie & Sophie Gareau-Brennan join me to kick off the New Year with a movie set in this bright & bold future: 2005’s The Island.

We discuss all the intricacies of clandestine clone factories, the assumptions 2005 made about 2019, and the most important question raised by this film: can Ewan McGreggor look good in white?

66 – LIVE from the Art Gallery of Alberta w. The HIVE Youth Council & Dara Armsden

Let’s talk about art! And let’s do it at the Art Gallery of Alberta!

This episode consists of two conversations: one with the HIVE Youth Council & one with the head of Education and Learning at the AGA: Dara Armsden.

Both conversations try to answer the question: what is our relationship with art, as producers and as consumers? We discuss where to find new artistic inspiration, the Edmonton art community, and the blocks that impede our engagement with art.
