hello


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

hello


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.”
