Its the Second Episode of our Second Season and we’re starting to feel our oats ! Come on down and rest yourself against a stack of hay and we’ll tell you a story . A story of what goes on out there beyond the perimeter . A land unknown to some and more than a reality to others. Some come from it and some go to it . Either way we all end up in our own hall of fame! Some by way of the three tine pitchfork and some by way of a piece of lumber, better known as the hockey stick…

So stick around and have a little listen . Get involved . Make a donation . Stop by the O Station, Cafe, that is… Tell us a story and we’ll get it out there . Far and wide

Jake MacDonald takes us to his onstage cottage at Royal MTC to discuss the peculiarities of cottage life and ownership. He is a fantastic author of books, articles and plays - his work has been turned into motion pictures - and Jake is one of the nicest people you could ever hope to spend time with on the porch!

Dustin Peltier and Rachel Isaak are local Chef’s who have moved up the food chain. By caring about the food that we all enjoy, they put in the time and effort to learn the fine art of REAL MILK® cheese making from the Master himself… Brother Alberic of the Trappist Monks at Holland, Manitoba. This age-old technique will lead to the production of every cheese imaginable, with the real taste that cheese deserves!

Ask for Prairie Tradition Cheese at your local grocery!

and Vote REAL MILK®

Oska the Great Grey Owl and James Duncan join us for a short chat about Owls, their habits, and their habitat. It’s a short chat that deserves a follow-up conversation! Maybe we’ll make it a live event where you can see this beautiful creature up-close!

episode #14 lagioia and klein bespoke tailor shop winnipeg manitobaville podcast suit.JPG

The word bespoke is most known for its "centuries-old relationship" with tailor-made suits, but the Oxford English Dictionary also ties the word to shoemaking in the mid-1800s. Although it is now used as an adjective, it was originally used as the past participle of bespeak.

And, although this podcast episode was custom-made, we won’t jump on the bandwagon by calling it bespoke, we will be leaving that term to Nicholas Klein, Bespoke Tailor and all around well-spoken gentleman.

Specialsode #1

Viva! ManitobavilleComment

Beth Martens is our first Specialsode guest. Beth has a story that makes you sit back and reconsider life, the universe, and everything. What is our true self? When did we start constructing the masks and cloaking devices that helped us get through growing up, deal with the grown-up world of work and expectations and make us who others think we are? And when did we start removing them in order to regain control over our mental health and rediscover our true archetype?

Well, Beth asked for a way out of her situation, and what she got is now the next hours traffick of our stage…

Show #10

Viva! ManitobavilleComment

DJ & Mihangel wonder if Hal Anderson and Laurie Mustard will make the plunge and be interviewed for the show… then they discuss all things archetype because Beth Martens is on our first Specialsode (which is the next episode) to talk about the near-death experience that propelled her into rediscovering her true self. Then we are joined by metal band Unsilenced to talk all things heavy in the local music scene, and rap/soul/rock musician Aaron Marshall Clarke to learn why he moved to Winnipeg after growing up in Saskatoon and spending time in the Calgary music scene… remember to help us achieve our goals for the Major Award giveaway, and to get involved with our ongoing mission to find the most interesting stories in Manitoba!

Show #9
