NEW PODCAST EPISODE to wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
In between two concerts, Nova Scotian drummer, Will Fisher, stops by to talk about the glamourous life of a touring musician in Canada. We discuss five-star hotel suites, dingy motels, small town concerts and international touring around a good cup of eggnog and rum.
Serial backpacker, Mike Howarth, stops by the podcast to talk about the 10 weeks he spent exploring Europe. We discuss buying too many cheap European tomatoes when you only have two bags, a random encounter with two RCMP officers in Spain, a man selling beer in his underwear in Slovakia, famous European landmarks and a train on a boat. 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!
Friend of the podcast, Damian Daniels, is back and this time we’re talking about the Olympics that just happened in Rio. How many hours of sports is it humanly possible to watch per day? How did Canada and France do? Is team dressage a real thing? How do you pronounce Fu Yuanhui? Can Damian do a good Ryan Lochte? Do I laugh every couple minutes? Listen to this episode and find out!

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.
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.
