Thoughts from your host…




Today is Thanksgiving here in Canada, and I have much to be thankful for.

I’m thankful that I have a family and a spouse that encourages this little ongoing craziness of mine.

I’m thankful that I have friends and acquaintances  who are willing to give up a few hours of their time in the name of creating new episodes.

I’m thankful for the entertaining and inspiring films that give me fodder for these discussions, that I have the opportunity to share those discussions.

And I’m thankful for anyone who takes a moment to tune into these little audio snapshots of mine and keep me hungry to create more.

For these, and for so much more…I am deeply thankful. Pass the sweet potatoes.


Thanks for tuning into episode one-hundred-forty-four.
