All good things must come to an end, and yes, that includes Making Plays. On the final episode of the year, Neil and Taylor dive into NHL and NBA playoff action, talk about the great “What ifs?” in sports, and share their favourite summer sporting activities that they are looking forward to.
This week for the final episode we brought on Garrett Fache. Garrett Fache has created a movie called “Nature of the Beast,” from his production company Wild House Media. We talked about his outdoors experience ranging from walking 15km on a dry river bed instead of canoeing or deep water soloing in the bush. Daniela tried to play us off, Manny told us about his love for cliff jumping (40-60ft.) and Adrian briefly talked about his own canoe trips. We capped the show and season off with a brief discussion about the playoffs.
This week we talked transportation and answered a few questions from our listeners too! Manny shared his bus rides down south with his soccer team, and his time as an Educational Assistant on school trips. Daniela talked about a charming Montreal server who asked her tasty in Montreal for him. Adrian shared his misadventure when he stopped a train bound for Budapest…and tried to claim it wasn’t him. Enjoy!
It was another great week on @4 with DJ Sawchuk as our host. He brought in Conservative MP James Bezan to talk about the upcoming Conservative leadership race. Rob Mahon brought in Peter from Illegal Curve Hockey to talk, you guessed it, hockey! With ongoing angst towards the merchants of Red River College, Lexi Myers rants about the coffee options at RRC while Alicia interviews “The Cheese Man”. Who is she talking about? Well you’ll have to tune in to find out. Want to be a cheese taster? Here’s the link to sign up. He only has limited room! https://goo.gl/forms/fcMtIrS13uK0yy2j1
This week on the show we welcomed professional music festival-goer Talia Smith. She talked to us about “riders” and gave us some festival pro-tips. Manny told us about a man he met at a festival who introduced him to “ballcuzzi’s,” Daniela shared her time at a pizza slice themed music festival… we think it’s a scam. It doesn’t run anymore some think Daniela got scammed but came away with a helluva story. Adrian sat back and took it all in having never gone to a music festival. Enjoy dear friends.
This week on @4 we had Matt Alcock hosting the show! He interviewed Kelsey Gillepsie, running for VPof Academic. Nolan Kowal ranted about NHL players in the Olympics, DJ Sawchuck spoke about the Bell/MTS merger, Christina Hyrniuk brought in Judy Wasylycia-Leis, and some discussion on Justin Trudeau themed pickup lines.
This week on the show we went to the final frontier and the depths of the sea! We discussed Mars One and their program to send people into space to colonize Mars in 2032. We turned our attention from the skies to the sea and theories of the sea including Atlantis and the Bermuda Triangle. Daniela does not believe in Atlantis and we all agree that Mars One needs to step up their fundraising game. We talked about Riverdale, The 100 and in BREAKING NEWS we stripped Garrett Fache from his previous ‘Average’ title and talked about his upcoming film […]
It’s the most wonderful time of year! Neil and Taylor discuss March Madness and what makes it so great (despite day 1 being disappointing). They also discuss the Minnesota Vikings moving on from Adrian Peterson and fantasy sports.
This episode of @4 is all about the 3rd annual IPP Expo at the Red River College Princess Street campus. Rob Mahon hosted and interviewed Noelle Vong, coordinator of the IPP Expo, Nolan Kowal was among the students doing live interviews, Alicia Kondrat spoke to Joy Balmana, founder of StreamWPG, and Christina Hyrniuk conducted a live segment of her political satire show, Christina’s Arena. We also had our own Lexi Myers on our rant segment, One-way radio, talking about the proper definition of feminism.
This week on the show we talked about our time in small town Manitoba this past weekend. Manny ventured out to Gimli and met the guy who made The Flag of Humanity, and Daniela found out they were already connected on LinkedIn. Daniela went to Portage La Prairie and got a painting from a man named Murray. She’s now his favourite. Adrian took some friends to his cottage at Victoria Beach and played some Minnesota ice-fishermen in a few games of pool. Enjoy.
@4 is back this week with host Nolan Kowal. Nolan talks to Red River College president Paul Vogt about the new refugee program at RRC. Christina Hryniuk has a feature story on the 60s Scoop Arts Project. Rob Mahon is ranting about the public’s reaction for Vince Li while Matt Alcock is talking about the rise in YouTube challenges. Gus Gottfred will tell you what’s trending today on social media. Lexi Myers is on the news while DJ Sawchuk is on the streets for traffic. Episode 6 is one you don’t want to miss.
This week on the show we had the young and talented Kristen Einarson join us! She talked to us about her time in New York watching a number of Broadway plays. We talked about Trip Advisor’s new trip offering a night’s stay in a London Eye pod. Daniela talks about her less than ideal experience riding the London Eye. Adrian talked about his American experience in an airport and showed off his (admittedly) weaker Christopher Walken impression. Manny takes us through his time as an audience member on Conan.
Neil and Taylor are tired, grumpy, and hungry after a crazy week of CreComm but they sucked it up for this week’s episode! They discussed the NHL and NBA trade deadlines, Jay and Dan returning to TSN, Adrian Peterson, and college basketball vs. NBA.
After taking a week off, @4 is back with a bang. Lexi Myers hosted the hour and had Trenton Burton, a local musician, come on the show to talk about his new debut album, Six to Twenty-one, which focusses on his struggle growing up with mental illness. Rob Mahon presented his feature on the PortageTerriors, Christina Hyrniuk rants about refugees illegally coming into Manitoba from the United States, and Nolan Kowal interviews the fifth for Team Englot, Krysten Karwacki, about her silver medal win in the Scotties Tournament of Hearts.
Welcome back from Reading Week! The Next Stop got into some role play today re-enacting stories from traveling abroad. Manny took us through the train station at Prague with a girl he yearned for and her less friendly friend. Adrian watched his friend almost die and pulled the keys away from him so he wouldn’t drive home. Daniela had us act out a late night adventure trying to get money from an ATM and getting to a hostel with the help of useless cabs. Daniela shared her glamorous experience in an Air Canada pod on her way home from Rome. […]
We have an exciting show lined up for you this week. Lexi Myers will get it all started with the latest news and sports stories of the day. We’ll be debuting our traffic segment, with DJ Sawchuk calling the studio with two traffic updates for your ride home. And of course, @4 wouldn’t be complete without a little hockey talk. Our host Gus Gottfred will interview Dave Minuk from The Illegal Curve Hockey Show. Did you miss Horror Con this past weekend? Don’t worry, our feature reporter Matt Alcock will be by to tell you all about it. Alicia Kondrat […]
Happy Valentines Day from The Next Stop! This week on the show we were joined by Sam Calvert; YouTube, travelling and hair gel extraordinaire. Sam talks about his plethora of Contiki trips, his beach life in Thailand and his hotel lifestyle in Port Douglas, AUS. Daniela asked a classmate on the air to be her valentine…no response yet. Manny teaches us about ChuckBall and how it compares to the Croatian sport Picigin, a sport that Adrian told everyone about. We featured promos from Hayley McDonnell and Kit Muir on the show as well. Enjoy!
Making Plays is finally live at 2pm! Neil and Taylor break down the INSANE comeback by the Patriots at Super Bowl 51, debate who would make the sports Mount Rushmore, and try to figure out the mess between Charles Oakley and the New York Knicks.
