Ep. #291: Long Night Reviews 2016 with Aliya Pabani, Freddie Rivas, Jill Krajewski, John Semley, & Laura Hermiston

This episode of Long Night with Vish Khanna was recorded at the Polish Combatants Hall in Toronto, Ontario, as part of the Long Winter festival on Friday December 2, 2016. It was a thoughtful, funny, and fascinating year in review discussion about 2016, featuring some very wise panelists. Aliya Pabani is the host of The Imposter, Canadaland’s arts & culture podcast, and also an artist in her own right. Freddie Rivas is a talented comedian and puppeteer and is well-respected for hosting Rap Battlez in Toronto. Jill Krajewski is a social media producer at Vice and a contributor to Noisey where she’s written notable pieces, including “The Noisey Guide to Making Your Damn Venue Inclusive.” John Semley is a books columnist at the Globe & Mail and the author of This Is A Book About The Kids In The Hall. And Laura Hermiston is the driving force behind the Toronto band Twist whose new album, Spectral, is out now on Buzz Records. Recorded by Dave MacKinnon. Photos by Rick Clifford. Produced by Long Winter and Vish Khanna.

Ep. #157: Long Night with Me, Aisha Alfa, Freddie Rivas, Anne Kingston, and the Weather Station

As some of you know I host a live talk show called Long Night with Vish Khanna every month (between November and March) at the Great Hall, as part of Long Winter in Toronto. The most recent episode on January 9, 2015 was actually recorded and so I’m presenting most of it to you here. You’ll hear the talk show band stylings of the Bicycles, the talk show sidekick stylings of James Keast, a stand-up set by Toronto comedian Aisha Alfa, a brief appearance by funny person and puppeteer Freddie Rivas, a serious interview about Jian Ghomeshi with Macleans Senior Writer Anne Kingston, and two songs by the Weather Station, as performed by the Weather Station. The final two regularly scheduled episodes of the year take place on February 13 and March 13 so please come see them at the Great Hall.
