Leaders: WAFFLES!, May 19, 2018

Honestly? Not one of our best. Matt took the idea of “leaders” and wound up with a whole ton of Canadiana arcana, including a fight song for John Diefenbaker, and some Nixon on piano stuff. Marisa kind of abandoned the idea and found some songs about mean bosses. Well, they can’t all be winners. The playlist is here:

Joy: WAFFLES! — May 12, 2018

From the Beethoven classic to the chap-hop of Professor Elemental, side-stepping through jazz and celebrity gossip, JOY is the subject of this week’s WAFFLES!, as Matt and Marisa break down music (or bands) that make them happy or deal with the joyous subject of joy itself.

Sailing: WAFFLES! — April 28, 2018

John Curtis of Wind Athletes (and a lot of other sailing-related initatives) drops by to co-host with Matt, and generally blow our minds about a whole whack o’ sailing facts! Music ranges from Mendelssohn’s Calm Sea, Prosperous Journey all the way to the Beach Boys and frankly terrifying music from, appropriately, TV show The Terror. WAFFLES! is podcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff. Playlist is over yonder, sailor:


Insects: WAFFLES! — April 21, 2018

Buzz buzz — bees, hornets, wasps, fireflies, and some non-insects like worms and spiders are crawling all over this edition of WAFFLES! Surprisingly mellow music for the most part, but getting kind of raucous on the back end with some new-classic hip-hop, Japanese rap, UK dance and a lot of bands named Cicada.

Harmony: WAFFLES!, April 14, 2018

Marisa and Matt are in har-mon-nyyyyy! Actually they repeatedly fail to sing in harmony — brutally — while playing lots of music by people who do, ranging from the eerie world of polyphonic overtone to the Gregorian chant of the Monks of Saint-Benoit-du-Lac on through the raucous yet sweet music of the Old 97’s. It’s the mellowest WAFFLES! ever, probably, and podcast always under a SOCAN 22F tariff.

Transplants: WAFFLES!, April 7, 2018

April is BeADonor month! Marisa’s at work, so Matt holds down the fort with Shillane, a volunteer with the Transplant Advocate Association! We learn tons about transplants, bust some myths, and of course play all sorts of music ranging from violin concertos to avant-garde hip-hop. Where’s that playlist? Why, it’s here! http://shep.ca/waffles/playlists/Playlist_WAFFLES_20180407.pdf

Geology: WAFFLES!, March 31, 2018

From the Grand Canyon Suite to the weird sounds of the Mothers of Invention, geology (what is geology?) is the guiding force behind this edition of WAFFLES!, as Marisa returns, Matt keeps being weird, and some stellar a capella female voices grace the airwaves. Podcasterized, as always, under a SOCAN 22F tariff.

Dave Cunningham of Well Suited joins us to co-host the show with Matt this week, talking about a new charitable organization in Kingston that helps people in need get dressed for job interviews and jobs themselves!

Songs of Resistance — WAFFLES!, March 17, 2018

We are joined by the inestimable Adam Walker for two hours of “Songs of Resistance,” starting with the subversive classical piece Finlandia and ending with 2016’s greatest song of all time candidate “Hell You Talmbout.” Incredible music, a great guest, and in the background, Facebook Live! On Adam’s feed. I don’t know how to link to that. So I won’t.
