Pending: The Terry & Ted Podcast

Saying goodbye to CHOM FM last May, morning host Terry DiMonte gave his loyal listeners one of the most touching moments in Montreal radio history; it will no longer be possible to listen Today, I say hello to life, harmonium, without closing the eyes with a damp veil. The retirement was short-lived for the host, who reunited with his former colleague Ted Bird at the podcast microphone in September. It is at the ready. If performing live on radio is like wiretapping, as Terry already explained, the happiness of listening to them in this new format is due to the sheer ease with which they discuss their rich careers as well as their vision of the metropolis they love. The duo recently launched their second season with one Mark Cassivi as a guest.

Sports, period!

Sports, period!

Few athletes have moved from the world of competition to the world of the media with such finesse as Roseline Fillion, who every morning at the ICI Première uses her sporting experience to shed light on sports news for Patrick Masbourian. The Rio Olympic medalist was the perfect candidate to replace journalist Genevieve Tardif at the head of Sports, period!, a series of discussions that takes women’s sport as its starting point but quickly moves beyond it. In each episode, a high-level athlete (such as Maxime Dufour-Lapointe) teams up with a personality from another background (such as Longueuil’s mayor Catherine Fournier) to discuss topics such as ambition, body image, or self-promotion. A video version of the podcast is also available on ICI Tou.tv.

Find Mnemo

Just when we were about to decide that all podcast concepts were made up, Frédéric Barbouchy and Antoine Vezina came to the fore. When they were roommates, the actors had fun each time passing in front of a world map covering the wall of the corridor, testing each other for knowledge: what is the capital of Kyrgyzstan? What’s from the Gambia? From Eritrea? (Answers: Bishkek, Banjul and Asmara.) So that you can memorize the names of the capitals of 195 countries of the planet, friends present today all the mnemonic devices (often stupid) that help them strengthen their memory. Each of the twelve-minute episodes also reminds us that these two are the stars of improv ice rinks for a reason. Will you be ready if the show All for one takes the antenna one day. Find Mnemo offered exclusively on iHeartRadio platforms.

Recipe

Is Fred Lambert a Real Doctor? Of course, but not the one that heals the blockheads of the body and mind. Although… As a violist with the Molinari Quartet and a doctor of music degree from McGill University, he has undoubtedly relieved the woes of many music lovers. A cultural omnivore, as perceptive when it comes to Bartók as he is American humor, a musician and columnist who can often be heard on a non-existent show. Average Width continues to break down the barriers between high culture and popular culture in this new series of in-depth interviews with artists such as pianist Charles Richard-Hamlin and choreographer Melanie Demers. Each conversation ends with a ping-pong of total cultural recommendations—the famous recipes in the title—between the bowed doctor and his guest. The side effects listed include intense intellectual pleasure and an increase in the curiosity gland.

Joseph-Armand Bombardier, besides the inventor

Born in 1907, the eldest of ten children in the family, Joseph-Armand Bombardier already at a young age had a mania to disassemble … his father’s car! Worried about the various risks involved in such a pastime, his father once offered him an old broken motor, hoping to satisfy his son’s patent instincts. He could not even imagine that the young man would quickly return to his form. This is one of the many anecdotes contained in this series in four episodes, exploring various aspects, private and public, of the snowmobile inventor’s journey. Composed of stories told by historians, fascinating archival extracts and testimonies collected from the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the most famous Valcourtois, this podcast, produced by the Musée d’Engineering J. Armand Bombardier, is an ode to the power of man. creatures to invent what is not yet comprehensible, and also to the one who sleeps in everyone to invent his own life.
