Ultrasonic Alarm Call Episode 08: Don’t Eat The Salmon, Moose

This week, Aidan was waylaid by zombies and Shane was busy astral projecting, so joining me in the Ultrasonic Alarm Call’s ultraswank podcasting module was Cookie Madill and, on guest hosting duties, Stephen Whitworth.

On the agenda: Does Regina hate renters? We go to city hall to find out. Does Regina hate pop music and joy? We listen to a couple tracks off the new Library Voices’ CD, Summer of Lust, then wonder how that could be possible.

Then, does Regina hate Superman’s new costume? And, is Whitworth weirdly obsessed with that question? I’m guessing yes on both counts.

That’s a lot of hate for one podcast. Fortunately, Ultrasonic Alarm Call is all about love and we balance all that hate with two installments of Cooking With Cookie! What does roller derby’s culinary terror have in store for us this week? Listen to find out.

Plus, we have another giveaway which we’re calling New Contest, Old Prize! This time, we have an audio riddle for you to solve! Listen close and win some swag!

Ultrasonic Alarm Call Episode 08: Don’t Eat The Salmon, Moose! At the table, Stephen Whitworth (host), Cookie Madill and me. Runtime 47 min essential listening, 36 sec incoherent blubbering. Music by the Lazy MKs.

  1. Hi
    Chocolate and Bacon!
    Pop band fer sure ,but they are alright. The first tune remided me of beach party music.

    My guess is the crosswalk signal beeping.

  2. Nice try, Ron. But wrong. Think bigger. It’s a downtown-changing sound. One that’s long overdue.

  3. Does the ultraswank podcasting module include a cone of silence? We might not want KAOS to hear the audio riddle.

  4. It doesn’t, but now that you’ve warned us about the KAOS threat, I think we’ll have to get one installed.

    Thanks for the heads up, Agent W.

  5. Thanks, Paul, and you’re welcome to call my shoe-phone anytime.

    I’ll guess, is it the sound of traffic along the 12th Street plaza?

  6. To help with the quiz, here’s a handy dandy list of the hints so far:

    – The missing sound is a sound you should have heard by now.

    – The missing sound is a sound you should have heard at the gateway to downtown.

    – The sound clip was recorded while standing on a street corner at a very important intersection.

    – The missing sound is long overdue and it would have been a downtown-changing sound (were you to have heard it).

    And here’s a bonus clue:

    – We should have heard that missing sound over a year ago, but nothing happened. Then, according to updated information, we were supposed to hear the sound the middle of this summer. But still, nothing.

    Oh heck, here’s one more:

    – The missing sound, if we are ever to hear it, will make some prairie dog writers very sad. Others, not so much.

  7. Was the carillon being relocated as part of the park project? I haven’t looked at its usual corner in a long time.

  8. You are on the corner of Albert and Victoria, and the sound we should hear is the construction of the province’s tallest building, Capital Pointe, where the Plains hotel stands.

  9. Aha! But before the construction would come the demolition of the existing Plains Hotel building, and I can see how that sound would make some Dog writers very sad.

  10. Bingo! Nice work. Demolition of the Plains Hotel and/or construction of Capital Point were the acceptable answers.

    Personally, I think both Martin and Agent W deserve prizes. I’ll get in touch with the Prairie Dog Powers That Be on Tuesday and figure out how to hook you up.
