Ep 28 | Andrea Warner on her book Buffy Sainte-Marie: The Authorized Biography-Podcast


Oct 19, 2018

Author and music journalist Andrea Warner joins Terry to discuss her latest book “Buffy Sainte-Marie: The Authorized Biography.” The Vancouver-based writer shares her thoughts on the many milestones, triumphs, and challenges of the Canadian icon’s life and career. The wide-ranging discussion reflects on the “restless mind” that drives Buffy’s artistic approach, her groundbreaking creative accomplishments, and the price she’s paid for her activism (which included being blacklisted in the US).
“Some of her peers wanted to get famous, and make a bunch of money, and be a part of a scene. She wanted to bring rights to Indigenous people. She wanted to stand up to war, and help lead a peace movement and talk about why that’s important,” Andrea shares. “She’s been actively dismantling colonization and colonial violence from the beginning with her work.”

Ep 25 | Alan Doyle Podcast


Oct 2, 2018

From the archives, this week we feature Terry’s conversation with Alan Doyle, former lead singer and co-writer of songs for Great Big Sea. He’s an actor, a storyteller and has spent many years raising funds for various charities and foundations.
We should have known that Alan would end up writing a book: He has the gift, and the stories. ‘Where I Belong: From Petty Harbour to Great Big Sea’ was an instant bestseller.
It’s about his family, the poverty that at times called for “kitchen parties” where the Doyle’s would play and friends would bring heating oil, food and provisions to get them through. ‘Where I Belong’ ends with the very first beginnings of Great Big Sea and the possibilities that their success would bring.

It’s just the realization that things can be done with love as opposed to hate.”

Ep 19 | Elizabeth Gabay Podcast


Jul 31, 2018


This week on the podcast, Terry shifts gears into the world of wine. Wine Master Elizabeth Gabay joins him from her home North of Nice. The pair discuss her book Rosé – Understanding the Pink Wine Revolution. Elizabeth has tasted 10 Rosé a day. A total of 1500 over 6 months from across the globe. Hear everything you need to know about one of the world’s oldest known types of wine.

Aug 14th is International Rose Day – In the fine wine World Rose was always considered the Ugly Duckling..Now  THE SWAN Emerges!!

Elizabeth is s Master of Wine who lives North of Nice!

Just outside Provence.  In France, 30% of all wine consumed in Rose.

She’s written a book called Rose!  Understanding the Pink Wine Revolution.

One thing we do understand – there is no hotter wine right now than Rose.

In Canada for example, Imported Rose sales grew by 116% between 2012-2016.

Canadian production grew 9%.

Rose winemaking has become complex, making it perfect for food pairing.

Yes, you can find lots of light Summer Sippers..somebody is even making a stronger Rose..for all you fans who want ice in the glass.

There are natural Rose..made with little or no human involvement.

Spending post-harvest in cement tanks or eggs.

Maybe even terracotta amphorae.

And it’s NOT just a Summer drink anymore.  Even though stores and restaurants back off after Thanksgiving..many wine fans (me included) carry on through the Winter..finding new ways to pair Rose and hearty winter meals.

There’s Rose in Oak. Aged Rose.

What colour Rose you choose is totally open for discussion.

Many fully grown men (if there is such a thing) will not be caught with a “pink drink”

I still find that bizarre

Elizabeth joins us  from her house in a small French village Saint- Martin- Vesubie “just North of Nice”
