Everybody’s favourite guest, Heather Pothier, is back for a third one! This time, she tries to teach me about golf (Canada’s summer obsession)and I try to convince her soccer is the greatest sport (especially with France winning its second World Cup).
This episode is a real hole in one, don’t miss it!
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.
France enthousiast, Grant MacNeil, stops by the podcast to bring a different perspective and chat about the time he spent in France. We talk about learning French by writing words on your arm, strikes, how peanut butter is not a thing in France, how French people don’t know anything about Vimy, and much more. Also, Grant used to be on polar bear watch (not in France, though). To learn more about that, listen to the episode on iTunes, Soundcloud or here:

Bon voyage !

Wine enthusiast, Ericka Wicks, and I go to a Nova Scotia vineyard, Domaine de Grand Pré, to talk about and taste Canadian wine. Is wine that was not produced in France even a thing? Is it ok to drink wine that comes in a box? What should you eat next time you’re having wine? Can we sample three different wines and not get a little buzzed? Listen to this episode and find out!
