Aaron is back from Kansas, but his computer broke and he’s swamped and sick so that means he won’t be able to work on P3 stuff for a little while longer. (Get better soon Aaron!) I missed putting out a podcast so I decided to go ahead and give it a go on my own. Please note that I totally massacre the intro and ending song…so sorry in advance! I’m still figuring this stuff out.
It also means there’s no amazing soundtrack, which is a bummer. But since this podcast is about storytelling I decided to try to flex my storytelling muscles. So I recount a recent night out where I went to see Will Oldham concert in Vancouver. I haven’t really left the house much in the last few months, so going out was a bit of an adventure. Plus, it was the first time I got to see Oldham in concert. He’s one of my favourites. It was a great night out, filled with magic and mystery and fun, which you will hear all about in the podcast. Oh and if you were at the Will Oldham show in Vancouver, please tell me what you thought. Drop me an email at email@example.com
I posted my favourite song of the evening above, though it was from another show, not the Vancouver one. Still, you’ll get the picture.
Stay tuned for next week, when the music will be back on track and everything will be right in the world.

Oh, well hello there. I’m really excited about this episode because I get to play some original music by an artist who I’ve admired for a long time. Her name is Ashley Webber.
I’ve known Ashley since her days as the bass player of the Organ. Since leaving the band, she’s gone on to do some really amazing work with Pink Mountaintops, her twin sister’s band Lightning Dust (whose song I use for the opening and closing theme to the podcast) and one of my musical obsessions, Will Oldham. (She’s the lady singing on his album Lie Down in the Light.)
Ashely was sweet enough to lend me her time and let me interrogate her about her musical career, including her connection to the one and only goeteed king of under-bite rock, Chad Kroeger.
Also on this episode, we have part two to Life Left on the Road, the story we played last week about people who recycle roadkill. On this segment, the Roadkill Warrior describes an integral moment he had with a dying bear.
Oh and check out what this guy does. He writes a new short story twice a week. I certainly don’t have that much drive but I sure wish I did.
Aaron is gone for a little while so the next episode likely won’t be up for a few weeks. But keep listening and spread the word if you like what we’re doing. And get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell me your stories. I want to hear them.
