Speaking Municipally is a proud member of the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB. This week we mentioned Let's Do Coffee, the new podcast from NAIT's Mawji Centre. Episode 3 features a conversation with interior designer Candace Wolfe. We also plugged I Don't Get It, a podcast about the performing arts in Edmonton. Their most recent episode touched on the demise of Vue Weekly, which they called "the city's last bastion of dedicated print arts media."

Speaking Municipally is produced by Taproot Edmonton, a home for curiosity-driven stories about our city, cultivated by the community. In addition to this podcast, Taproot publishes the Council Roundup every week. Sign up to get it delivered by email for free.
