It's a diverse group of people who come together at sketch to collaborate, create and support each other. It's a truly uplifting and inspiring culture that they've established.

Toronto Sounds Good: A Local Music Anthology
While searching out Toronto based podcasts I've come across a few gems here and there, but I was surprised to find relatively few options.
