In November 2020, Jeff Humphreys launched The Calgary Sessions, interviewing acquaintances and friends with interesting stories in a non-scripted, casual setting. Through word-of-mouth, he built up a roster of local interviewees, eventually landing Laval St. Germain, the only Canadian to summit Mount Everest without oxygen, for Episode 22. It was a turning point for the podcast, attracting even more well-known names to join Humphreys behind the mic.

Now, more than 100 episodes in (and counting), he has featured compelling Calgarians such as master chocolatier Bernard Callebaut; Juno Award-winning musician, producer and songwriter Russell Broom; award-winning sports, editorial and commercial photographer Candice Ward; and others. “I knew I was going to connect with some cool people and have some great conversations, but I didn’t realize the impact and the kind of the community that was going to be built around this idea,” Humphreys says.

The Calgary Sessions is released weekly on Wednesdays. Listen on Spotify, Apple and Google Podcasts, or watch it on YouTube.
