About the Bonn Park Podcast

Bonn Park hosts Marshall Ward and Sara Geidlinger chat in-depth with fascinating people living, working, and creating in Waterloo Region. Each episode features a different guest, with artists, writers, experts, entrepreneurs, activists and other folk talking about their motivations, inspirations, and aspirations.

Marshall is a longtime newspaper columnist who has interviewed Hollywood celebrities and local characters; Sara is a photographer and filmmaker who loves to find out what makes people tick. Together, their show emulates the feel of sparking up a conversation with an interesting stranger in a park, which is how Marshall and Sara met (in Waterloo's Bonn Park) and discovered their shared interest in Waterloo Region's creative community.

About An Unscripted Spectacle

Marshall is utterly obsessed with professional wrestling. Sara is utterly perplexed by professional wrestling. On each episode of An Unscripted Spectacle, Marshall and Sara talk with a different guest from the world of wrestling -- promoters, referees, journalists, and current and past stars of the squared circle -- to talk deeply about the strange magic of professional wrestling that has enchanted Marshall his whole life. Can they turn Sara into a fellow connoisseur of pro wrestling? She'll need some convincing.
