· The Pulse
By Andy Trussler

If you missed LitFest last month, worry not! You can still get a little bit of Canada's original nonfiction festival on Glass Bookshop Radio, the podcast produced by indie bookstore Glass Bookshop.

Episode 27 features the LitFest conversation between Shima Robinson, the artistic director of the Edmonton Poetry Festival, and Ian Williams, author of Disorientation: Being Black in the World.

That's not the only literary deep dive you can uncover on Glass Bookshop Radio, hosted and produced by Makda Mulatu. Recent episodes feature writers Jordan Tannahill, David Demchuk, and Jen Sookfong Lee, with conversations spanning back to October 2020, when Glass Bookshop owners Jason Purcell and Matthew Stepanic kicked off the show.

Glass Bookshop itself is currently housed in The Garage space at Latitude 53. It will be in those temporary quarters until Dec. 24, with plans to be in the shop's permanent home in the Stovel Block across from the Royal Alberta Museum in the new year.

Episodes of Glass Bookshop Radio are available on its website, Spotify, and Apple Podcasts.

You can listen to podcast picks from Taproot on Listen Notes or Spotify.
