Karen takes over the airwaves! She kicks things off with an interview between Apt613 editor Trevor Pritchard and Michael Fuerstack (the artist formerly known as Snailhouse). Then, she talks to film director Sean Garrity about his new film, Blood Pressure, and the unique attributes of Canadian conversation. After playing a Mappemonde by Les Soeurs Boulay, she chats with Charles Tilden, who, with Delta Will, uses music to chronicle Delta Will's experiences on Earth. A Delta Will tune, There is a Future, follows the interview, as does I Feel it All by Feist.
Karen wraps up the show by chatting with Jamie Stuckless from EnviroCentre - they talk biking to work, and leave the show with the song Lola en Confiture, by Les Soeurs Boulay.

Ryan and Katie started the show off with an interview with provocative local photographer Jonathan Hobin. Though his images of children in metaphorical representations drawn from world issues may be familiar to Ottawans, his work is starting to make waves (and draw criticism) internationally. He is currently about to have his first solo exhibition in Toronto, but he took the time to call in from a hotel lobby in Hogtown.
Next, they chatted with Lee and Janik, who are both a part of this weekend's Jane's Walk Ottawa festivities. There are plenty of activities taking place across Ottawa, but you can also take part in a very special walk through Somerset Street West organized by Apartment613 editors on Saturday. Or check the Jane's Walk website for a full listing of walks and other events.
Apt613 contributor Erika Nelson joined our hosts in studio to talk about her recent feature article on the best cocktails in Ottawa. Here's a teaser if you haven't read the article yet: Erika was pleasantly surprised to find some amazing cocktails around town and gives you the low-down.
Here are the songs we played this week:
