The second half of our chat with
Jeff Samsonow is all about his indie media production adventures. We learn about the company started by he and Sally Poulsen, The Edmontonian Media Co. Some of the things discussed: Comedy that punches up, other talented Edmontonians, and advertising in this digital age.
Where did our guest go after
AMI? Jeff shares his adventures with
Postmedia and Capital Ideas. He also mentions gastropost.
Karen Unland and Brittney Le Blanc started Capital Ideas according to our guest. Jeff also adds how he got to know them through McEwan and 630 CHED. Karen runs
Seen and Heard in Edmonton, the Edmonton podcast meetups and is trying to start a podcast network.
The Edmontonian Media Co. was born from the work Jeff & Sally Poulsen put into The Edmontonian. Their first production was called, wait for it, Sick Day. The first short was inspired by the cold opens they did on the
6 part series . The Edmontonian Presents that aired on Shaw TV Jeff tells us about
Startups, another short they made featuring Karen Unland, Owen Brierley of EDAC and former guest Marty Chan. The Edmontonian Media Co. also produced
Obstacles. Jeff worked with
Christian Zyp during Startups. The most recent production from Sally & Jeff was the amazing
Underdogs of Comedy. They were inspired by
Simon Gorsak and Brett McCrindle often host the Underdog Comedy Show.
Dion Arnold started the show, originally. More comedians in the area mentioned:
Clare Belford, Carina Morton & Simon Glassman. Speaking of places to find comedy in Edmonton, try
The Underdog, The Empress Ale House and El Cortez. Keep your fingers crossed, Jeff & Sally have submitted The Underdogs of Comedy to
AMPIA’s web series award category. Jeff’s newest venture is
Edmonton Quotient, telling the stories of Edmonton in an online magazine. Chris always makes it weird and tells a story of
companies reaching out to advertise in porn. Chris also makes a pitch for
Someday in February. Learn more about podcasting in Edmonton at
