Sequel Talk with local filmmaker Mitch Graszat is a pop culture-savvy chat where guests dream up imaginary sequels and talk about em!

Mitch and company also speculate on what could have been with classic songs and TV shows.

There’s no Barrie Colts this year (insert sad emoji/hockey puck here) but that doesn’t mean we don’t have local hockey chatter. The Very Barrie Colts pod is hosted by super fans and general hockey geeks, Ryan Noble and Ryan McArthur. There’s a deep dive of archived episodes to go through for a refresher on the Colt’s past seasons.

The Lost Sons podcast is the brainchild of local music scene gurus Shane and Alex. Their show is all about supporting the scene through interviews and advice, like how to pick the right song structure for your tunes. They also review music videos and share their own cool experiences from performing in Barrie.

Another great entry to the podcast universe that is all about supporting the local scene is the aptly named Team Bayfleld – Support The Scene. Presented in association with Sunrise Records on Bayfield, hosts Gillian and Richard interview local artists and engage in record shop talk for the pandemic age.
