True crime junkies should have a listen to Whereabouts Unknown, hosted by local private investigator Ellen White. The ongoing series shines a spotlight on the stories of the missing and murdered in Canada, particularly cases from around the region.

The Dilemma Dudes podcast is the brainchild of the demented (but hilarious) players from the Yikes Comedy Troupe.

Although there are no new episodes on the horizon, the vault of inspired episodes includes philosophical quandaries like “are we living in a simulation?”, presented in irreverent and lol tones.

Another great entry to the podcast universe that is all about supporting the local scene is the aptly named Team Bayfleld – Support The Scene.

Presented in association with Sunrise Records on Bayfield, hosts Gillian and Richard interview local artists and engage in record shop talk.

Beer? There’s a local pod for that…

4 Elements Craft Beer Podcast highlight craft breweries and the people behind them. In addition to the interviews and convo, the crew at 4 Elements host beer tasting events all over the region, and have visited the likes of Redline and Flying Monkey’s here in Barrie.

If hard core geekery is your jam, be sure to download an episode or two from the True North Nerds. Handing out reviews of the latest shows and discussion of all things nerdish, you can find them on the usual podcathers.
