Summary

Meet Matt Mercer-Slingsby, one of the hosts of Drink This Podcast, a celebration of pub culture that lets you eavesdrop on smart people talking about everything from restaurant life to Disney, over beers, of course. Drink This Podcast started as a review show four years ago, but that had some limitations, Matt says, and it got complicated when he got a job in the beer industry. So they shifted their focus to great conversations over tasty libations. Matt and his co-host Paul recently brought on Vancouver's Mia Steinberg as a third regular co-host after she blew their minds in a conversation about Star Wars. We talk about what she brings to the show, as well as lessons Matt has learned about equipment — "A $1,000 life lesson that I should have been able to learn for free," as he says. We also talk about the great theme song that a.i. wrote for the show. Listen to it after you listen to this. This episode is also available in iTunes, on SoundCloud or on Stitcher. Matt recommended the following Alberta-made podcasts: The Lip Talk The Strategists Highlevel Showdown What It Is 30 Minute Week You can find Drink This Podcast at drinkthispod.com and on iTunes, as well as on Facebook and on Twitter (@drinkthispod). Matt himself is @slingsbot on Twitter, and you can find out what he's drinking on Untappd. This episode was one of several recorded at the Makerspace at the downtown Edmonton Public Library on 100in1Day. Watch for more conversations captured that day in the coming months. This week’s Seen and Heard in Edmonton is brought to you by Taproot Edmonton, a new member-supported home for local journalism created with the community and not just for it. If you'd like to help Mack Male and me create a new way to sustain how-and-why journalism in our city, join Taproot today.
