SBC - Episode 05 - On the road

My guest Michael (in Vancouver, BC) and I (in Halifax, NS) go coast to coast and talk about driving across Canada. We discuss bad roads, sleeping in your car, road trip food and music, survival technics and scary diners. Oh, and the world’s largest chainsaw and the world’s largest lobster. Literally.

Slowly Becoming Canadian The Podcast – Episode 04 – Canadian food

Food 2

Fellow pub food enthousiast Heather and I sit down to enjoy a very Canadian meal and discuss (mostly late night) food etiquette. The menu might not be the healthiest but it’s delicious: Caesar (the drink, obviously, not the salad), donair (Halifax’s new official food), poutine and Timbits. We also talk about nachos, BBQ, lobster, and of course maple syrup.

You can also listen to the episode on iTunes.

Bon appétit!

 

 

Slowly Becoming Canadian The Podcast – Episode 03 – Living in remote Canada

Slowly Becoming Canadian - Episode 03 - Living in remote Canada

Helen (who used to live ELEVEN HOURS North of Edmonton, AB) joins me to talk about what it is like to live in an isolated Canadian community: do groceries for 9 months, be pregnant when the closest hospital is more than an hour drive away, get licked by a bear and much more.
We also find out how many car accidents per year in Canada involve moose. It’s probably more than you think.
