MTP: Episode 130 (Holiday Edition #10)


Happy Holidays everyone! I’m sure we can all agree that as years go, 2020 has sucked in virtually all ways imaginable. That said, we’re quickly closing in on the Yuletide season and a fresh new calendar and, as we see it, that’s certainly worth celebrating!

The Marking Time Podcast Episode 130 is our 10th annual(!) opportunity to say thanks to you our listeners by offering up a full 2 hours of uninterrupted sounds of the season to accompany your favourite festive activities. We’re proud to feature a solid mix of new takes and old faves, many served up by amazing artists from right here in Canada. Woo hoo!

So get cozy and pour yourself a stiff one as we settle in for a long winter’s retrospective. Meanwhile, we invite you to focus on the joys of Christmastime, even those of the socially distanced variety. Stay safe, be well and here’s to a better New Year ahead. Cheers!
