Toronto, ON – Suite 66, the exclusive representatives of blogTO, announces the launch of blogTO’s new podcast, “Only in Toronto”.
Presenting in-depth coverage on a particular topic as well as the latest local headlines, the podcast can currently be found on iTunes, Google Play Music as well as Stitcher, and will soon roll out on Spotify, and other platforms.
Hosted by Dani Stover, previously a radio personality on Indie 88 in Toronto, episodes will go live in time for the evening commute. The first episode takes a closer look at Toronto’s burgeoning chicken restaurant scene and visits Chica’s Nashville Hot Chicken where they discover what exactly makes this place so unique. They also visit the classic St. Matthews BBQ Chicken to learn the secrets of their success. Episode two focuses in on ice cream while future episodes will go in depth on topics such as the King St. Pilot project, summer festivals, and one of Toronto’s most interesting streets.
Tim Shore, founder and publisher of blogTO said of the new endeavor:
“The podcast format really allows us to tackle some of the same topics we cover on the site but in an entirely new way, offering additional layers of information and insight to help Torontonians really get to know their city.

“With the proliferation of digital assistants from the likes of Google, Amazon, and Apple and a well-developed streaming infrastructure, podcasts are hitting their stride and offer marketers a very compelling opportunity to engage with audiences on a more personal level.”
