Ultrasonic Alarm Call Episode 02: The Renamed prairie dog Podcast

Yeah. I don’t know either. I was the one pushing for “Ultrasonic Alarm Call” as the title and now that we’ve gone and used it I have all this naming remorse.

By way of explanation, an ultrasonic alarm call is the noise a prairie dog makes when it’s in distress. See? It kind of makes sense. Especially considering we have an election wrap up in this week’s installment. (But if we change the name again, don’t be surprised.)

Anyway, in this episode, we take a look at the election results and how Saskatchewan’s wonky riding layout skewed things in the Conservative’s favour. We also look at the long form census, the opening of the Creative City Centre project in the downtown, and we examine Regina’s heavy metal scene in some detail. And we have another review of some shit we haven’t seen.

This episode comes with a mature content warning. Moreso than usual, that is. The discussion of heavy metal veers into some dark territory. There’s a lot of nervous laughter and we try to keep it from going off the rails, but, yeesh, Norwegian metal….. it’s just all badness.

Music is once again provided by the Lazy MKs. They’re awesome. Be sure to check out their myspace page and go to their shows. I hear they’re playing the Cathedral Village Arts Festival.

Ultrasonic Alarm Call Episode 02 — Modifications: At the table, Aidan Morgan (host), Vanda Schmockel, Carle Steel, Danny Kresnyak, Elan Morgan and me. Music by the Lazy MKs. Runtime: 42 minutes.

  1. Hi guys,

    Thanks for the interesting discussion and comments about the Creative City Centre. I want to clarify one point…this space has NO connection whatsoever to Regina ArtsAction. None. Never has. I was under contract to ArtsAction to do the feasibility study on the Leader Building and Legion Building in 2006-07, but when that was done, we parted ways. The Loggie’s project started in October 2008.

    One other point is that Loggie’s is actually owned by Kelly Hague, not Harold Hague, so Kelly is the one who has made this possible through his generosity. Harold introduced me to Kelly, so he did start the ball rolling, but the actual “deal” was struck with Kelly.

    Thanks! Really enjoying the metal discussion too. Beezlebizon rehearsed here for two years, they rocked the shoe store twice a week like clockwork.
    Marian.
