It was foodie madness on the show this week, and Ryan and Jared were joined for the whole show by foodiePrints' own Don Chow. In a week filled with foodie news, Algonquin College announced a new bursary for culinary excellence in honour of former Ottawa Citizen food editor Ron Eade. Part of the show focused on the news that Art-Is-In Bakery will be rolling back their wholesale operations, meaning that you won't be seeing their bread on every menu in town going forward. In other big news, Kichesippi Brewery is jumping into the soda business, starting with a flagship ginger beer. Local Dark and Stormies, here we come! And Richard's Hintonburg Kitchen, helmed by Juniper founder Richard Nigro, just opened in everyone's favourite west-end foodie hood. Look out for an early review from Apt613 this week. All these stories and more dominated the week in foodie news.
Steven Flood from The Black Tomato called in to chat about their new late-night menu, which is set to challenge misconceptions that Ottawa is an early-to-bed kind of town. Check out their rather extensive list of microbrews while you're there. While en route to Toronto by car, Roberta Bondar called in to talk about their new EP Hiss, which is being released on tape.
Here's what we played on the show:

This week, Karen and Katie took to the studio to celebrate International Women's Day. And Jared was there too. They had great chats with the wonderful women behind Urban Craft Market and Carleton's Science Café. Katie also sleuthed out some interesting facts about artistic, athletic and political women in and around Ottawa.
All of the songs we played featured musically inclined Canadian women. Here's the track list:

In the interest of greater accessibility for our readers, we're trying out a new format for Apartment613 Live post this week. Now, in addition to being able to listen to the full, unabridged show (here or in iTunes), you'll also have the option of listening to each individual interview by way of a nifty Soundcloud link. Let us know what you think about the new format in the comments.
Ryan steered the show solo this week, and like many people around town, he's really excited about the announcement that Bjork will be playing Bluesfest this summer. He also had the chance to chat with the organizers of Femicon, the local International Women's Day event at the Library and Archives on March 8.
Next, the folks from Ideavibes called to talk about the Apps for Ottawa contest, which aims to reward developers for coming up with useful, creative, and effective applications using the City of Ottawa’s OpenData.
Ryan capped off the show with conversation with Mitchell Burton, artist in residence at the School of Photographic Arts: Ottawa. Mitchell is presenting a new exhibition called The Seats, a photographic study of the spaces that are designed to welcome people to public events.
Here are the songs we played:
