Episode 3: Rossdale Power Plant

In episode #3 we discuss the uncertain future of the Rossdale Power Plant. EPCOR is keen to offload the property to the City by the end of March, but a new City report suggested that it could cost up to $87 million to repurpose the buildings. What should we do? That’s one of the topics we explore!

We also talk about our inability to preserve historical buildings, and the way the Rossdale Power Plant fits in with the other plans that are in place nearby (such as the West Rossdale Urban Design Plan and the new Walterdale Bridge).

Here are some relevant links for this episode:

What do you think should happen to the Rossdale Power Plant? Let us know!


Episode 2: Oilers Addiction

In episode #2, we discuss why we’re addicted to the Edmonton Oilers. What is it about our hockey team that keeps everyone so interested? Why did the lockout seem to have no effect on our addiction? Why don’t other sports teams in Edmonton have such a following?

We also delve into the notion of civic identity. Edmonton’s seems to be intertwined with the Oilers, but can that change? Of course, it’s hard for us to chat about the Oilers without touching on the arena too! That didn’t take long, did it?

The episode is a bit random, we admit, but we’re still figuring this out so thanks for joining us on the journey! As always, we’d love your feedback, so don’t be shy!


Episode 1: Introduction

Welcome to the first episode of Mack & Cheese, a podcast created by Mack Male and Graham Hicks!

In episode #1, we discuss why we decided to create the podcast, and we talk entirely too much about ourselves. We also discuss some of the topics that we’ll be delving into on future episodes. Our cheese this episode was havarti – but you’ll have to listen to find out why that matters and for the reasoning behind the name Mack & Cheese!

This episode is about fourteen and a half minutes long, and was recorded in early November 2012. Hopefully it serves as an interesting introduction to our show! If you have any feedback, we’d love to hear it.
