Brews n’ Tunes [In Memoriam]

As I returned to school this year to study Radio Broadcasting, I’ve been forced to introduce myself a lot. With that, comes the inevitable recollection of my experience and why I want to be here.

A huge part of my experience with audio, came from my third year of University. I met someone who became super influential in my life, who became my partner in crime on the air and helped guide me through my on-air-adolescence.

His name was Noah, and with him -and a couple of other incredible gentlemen- I started Brews n’ Tunes, a podcast that combined my two major loves, music and beer. Focusing on our Ottawa community, we interviewed independent musicians and asked them to review a local craft beer. Matching musicians to beverages, we created the ideal environment to talk to cool people and get them to answer our questions.

It was one of the most fun projects I’ve ever done, and my first real introduction to podcasting. Though it only lasted about a year, it was an exciting creative outlet that introduced me to a passion that has taken over my life.

The episodes are still all up on iTunes. Listen and embrace the learning curve that comes with baby podcasters, and my first full interview on our Episode with Finding Chuck.

Cheers.
