Allan Mott - YEG Me some B-Movie gold
Allan Mott - So much fun to have local Edmontonian Allan join us to talk about his writing career and creative touch points in our community.  To go along with his passion for B-Movies, he’s a book writer too! A few years back he was allowed to publish his own book on the subject, the imaginatively titled Scary Movies, which documented the creation, reaction and relevance of six of his favourite horror movies.  It remains the best of the 12 and ½ books he’s managed to publish thus far (don’t ask about the ½ book, it’s a long story).  As a film theorist (which is a pretentious way to say that he writes really long reviews where the actual quality of the films are usually irrelevant) Allan operates under the belief that anyone can come up with interesting insights while deconstructing Citizen Kane, Persona, The Seventh Seal, 8 ½, Badlands or Breathless, but it takes imagination, hard work and a twisted personality to do the same with Skatetown USA, Don’t Go in the House, Cheerleaders Wild Weekend or Disorderlies. Which leads us to Vanity Fear, which was once called The House of Glib before Allan got tired of constantly telling people what “glib” meant. Its purpose is to serve as a repository for any cinematic observation Allan wishes to make that is unlikely to ever be printed anywhere else.  In addition to B-Movies and writing, we chat about his love of food and he shared many dishes he hopes others discover in Edmonton. Here is the coveted Food list that Allan shared with us on the podcast. You have to go enjoy these local dishes in Edmonton! Brussels Sprouts at Woodwork Potato Fondant at Partake Fish Tacos at Tres Carnales Latte at Coffee Bureau Lemon Merengue cake at Duchess Gnocchi at Almanac Order off the white board at Tokyo Noodle Shop Fonduta Agnolotti at Bar Bricco Spicy garlic miso pork ramen at Prairie Noodle House Hot chicken at Northern Chicken Eclairs at La Boulle Blue steel with bacon and smoke at The Burger’s Priest You can find Allan: www.vanityfear.com - A pretentious A-Hole’s guide to B-Movie BS Twitter: https://twitter.com/HouseofGlib  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/houseofglib/  So what is Yeg Me all about?

Dave Jamieson - YEG Me some Edmonton sports stories
Dave Jamieson of TSN 1260 It was so great to sit down with Dave on the YEG Me podcast. He is a man of many talents! He once put out a raging barbecue fire with nothing more than an old dish towel and a steely glance, and he now brings his unique and informed perspective on the world of sports to the airwaves of Edmonton. He’s a former producer, broadcaster and program director at some of the biggest radio stations on the West Coast and in Edmonton, Dave originally hales from the soft streets of Vancouver and most recently spent 14 years as the Edmonton Eskimos Director of Marketing, Communications and Broadcast as well as President of the Edmonton Rush.  He’s no stranger to goings-on behind the scenes of professional sports including his own feelings of inadequacy in a locker room.  You can listen to Dave on TSN 1260 weekdays from noon to 2 pm and he might even allow you to weigh in once in a while as he entertains, bemuses and prevents younger, more talented radio talent from establishing themselves in the market.  Follow Dave on Twitter:  https://twitter.com/jamieson1260  So what is Yeg Me all about?

SOCIAL HANDLES Twitter https://twitter.com/cm_edmonton  Instagram https://www.instagram.com/cm_edmonton/  Facebook So what is Yeg Me all about? Edmonton is a great city and we wanted to connect with some Edmontonians to learn more about them and more importantly, some of their thoughts and insight about Edmonton (YEG).  So...what better way to do that than to host a podcast on said topic. We also had some fun coming up with some Yeg.Me swag with some pretty awesome YEG designs. Learn more at www.yeg.me  Yeg Me is sponsored in party by Road 55.
