The Slowly Becoming Canadian Podcast – Episode 21 – Small town business

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).

Slowly Becoming Canadian – Episode 20 – The Big Move

Former Amherstonian and new Torontonian, Joel Boyle, joins me to talk about moving from a small town in Nova Scotia to (according to the people who live there) the centre of the world: Toronto.

We discuss what it feels like to not know everybody in your city, how in Toronto – unlike in rural Nova Scotia – you can’t close Main Street for Prom, being a Sens fan in Leafs territory, and Bud Light and hot dogs (the Canadian equivalent to red wine and beef).
