Jenny Ryan is an improvisor and stand up comic from Saskatoon, performing regularly with the LadyBits Improv Comedy Collective. In 2018 she was named Canada's Best Librarian which may mean nothing to you but is, in fact, a pretty big deal. She is tone deaf, but hopes the Saskatchewan music community won't hold that against her.
Eric Anderson is the host of YXE Underground podcast. He is a former CBC Radio journalist who currently works as the Communications Leader for Sherbrooke Community Centre in Saskatoon. For nearly eight years with Canada's national broadcaster, Eric did pretty much everything you can imagine. He was twice nominated for an RTNDA Award for Creative Use of Sound, and the best part of Eric’s journalism career was meeting new people and telling their stories, which is what YXE Underground is all about. Saskatoon holds a special place in Eric’s heart. He spent the first four years of his life in Saskatoon and then returned in 2004 to attend the University of Saskatchewan. After stops in Frontier SK and Regina, he moved back to Saskatoon for love in 2014 and now calls it home with his wife Jen, and their dog, Fred.
