The podcast is back in Amherst, NS (literally, this time) to talk with Mikhial Mansour about owning and growing a small business in a small town.
We discuss why he decided to move back to his hometown, what it’s like to run a business that’s almost a hundred years old in a place where everybody knows you, and how to bring it into the digital age. Also, we talk about the hilarious videos they shoot in the store (@mansoursmenswear on Instagram and Facebook).

This episode brings you not just one, but two French guys!
Fellow Frenchman, Florian Guéret, comes by to chat about what it feels like to be a Frenchman living in Canada. We discuss citizenship, accents, kids, politics, stereotypes… Serious topics but in a very not serious way. And we make fun of French AND Canadian people. Also, Florian does an Australian accent like no one else.

To celebrate Canada turning 150, the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 (in Halifax, NS) will launch its Canada Day 1 exhibit on March 18th. I was very lucky to be allowed to take a peek at it while it was still being put together. I also got to interview museum’s curator, Dan Conlin, who gave me my own private tour and to meet one of the artists who colaborated on the exhibit, Charley Young.
If you can’t get to Halifax to see the exhibit, take a look at the museum’s website www.pier21.ca or follow them on Facebook, twitter or Instagram.
You can find out more about Charley’s work on her website: charleyyoung.com
Thank you again to the museum (who wishes to thank the RBC Foundation for their support and contribution) and a special thanks to Dan Conlin.

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.

NFL, MLB, NBA, WHAT?!
North American sports are all very confusing to me and I’m always lost when people talk about them. I sat down with sports connoisseur and friend, Damian Daniels, so he could help me a little.
Whether you love sports or you don’t care about it, listen to this episode. You’ll learn a thing or two, laugh, and find out if me guest would pass the Canadian citizenship test.
Game on! (That’s what you say, right?)
