COVID and chill with these Calgary-produced podcasts
There's no better time to turn up the volume and unwind
Did you know CBC Calgary is the home to five podcasts?
That's right Ambushed, Cost of Living, Heroes, Hustlers and Horsemen, Venturing Out and West of Centre were all produced in Calgary and are available for you to listen to on demand anywhere, anytime. But which one should you add to your listening list?
For the economics lover: Cost of Living
The Cost of Living loves money — how we make it, spend it, waste it and grow it. They untangle the economic forces at play in our world and transform our understanding of how money shapes our lives. Come along with CBC Calgary's Paul Haavardsrud to discover how innocuous everyday decisions connect with the larger economy in ways big, small, good, bad, obvious and unseen.
For the politics lover: West of Centre
This political podcast explores the voice, experience and misunderstanding of the western part of the country — Alberta in particular. CBC Calgary's Kathleen Petty sits down with politicians, pundits, and other thoughtful westerners for conversations about the priorities, preoccupations and politics of Albertans and others who are west of centre.
For the true crime lover: Ambushed
A well-liked couple — an RCMP officer and a kindergarten teacher — are gunned down in a small, Alberta town. Twenty years later, the mystery still lingers. Who killed Lorraine McNab and Peter Sopow? This six-part podcast investigates this 20-year-old unsolved murder in cattle country, hearing from cops who worked the case, and family who harbour their own suspicions.
For the history lover: Heroes, Hustlers and Horsemen
You've likely driven the Deerfoot, but have you ever heard the story of the man it's named after? Heroes, Hustlers and Horsemen is history like you haven't heard it before. These are whiskey-soaked, rough and tumble biographies about larger than life figures who shaped southern Alberta in the tumultuous late 1800s.
For the business lover: Venturing Out
Want the inside scoop on the reality of being a Canadian entrepreneur? Join Arlene Dickinson for some candid conversations with some of Canada's top entrepreneurs as they share stories about the highs and lows on their journey to success.
