Some Toronto-Based Podcasts

September 24, 2010


This week’s resource is a podcast round-up. I intend to do a more comprehensive “worldwide” round up in the near future, but for now, here are some great podcasts by Toronto comics (in alphabetical order):

Hosted by local Toronto comic Joe Ianni, this podcast is recorded in the Green Room at Yuk Yuk’s and chats with comics about a variety of topics. You never really know what you’re going to get (unless you listen to the podcast I was on. Then you’ll get me going on a boring ramble about modular bits and Toy Story 3).

Corktown Radio
Hosted by Dave Martin, Paul Irving, and Derek Thompson with announcer Andy Boorman. Recorded at the Dominion on Queen, which mixes talk radio and music.

Hold Your Applause
Hosted by the very funny Bob Kerr and Adam Christie, this podcast interviews a variety of comedians.

Laugh Out Loud
I don’t think this podcast is strictly comedy, but they often have some pretty big Toronto names and I enjoy listening to my favourite comics in the city do the show. Also on their website they have a pretty good selection of comedy in the “clip of the day”

TVA Podcast
Todd Van Allen’s great podcast has a huge archive of material and he consistently books awesome guests. It is worthy of note that he is now putting his efforts into a different (still comedy-based) podcast called…

Comedy Above the Pub
Same guy, different podcast. Believe it.

Talking Bollocks
Not really a podcast, more of a video kinda thing, but host Marilla Wex is awesome, so I’m putting it up here anyways.

This is by no means an exhaustive account, and if I am missing any podcasts in and around Toronto, please let me know in the comments section and I’ll update this post. Special thanks to Todd Van Allen for helping with this round-up!
