A radio series idea about average Canadians.

A radio series idea about average Canadians.

A podcast that profiles average Canadians as I travel the country. It is all set to original music that I wrote and recorded. It is also an opportunity to put my new web design skills to work. (Here’s the template.)

It’s taken a back seat lately, although I will continue to work on it. I plan to eventually sell it as packaged “seasons.” But, it has to remain a hobby. (Read my blog post about it here.)

Here is the demo episode I created with Bill, an Okanagan farmer from England.




Pilot episode of “Inertia,” a show centered around what motivates people to do anything. This episode is about people who find the confidence to follow an idea.

*I did all the music, except at the end of the Local Arts section where a part of “History” by The Olympic Symphonium is played. Ryan Robichaud contributed drums to the intro, and Dan Goyette helped with the outro.

CBC’s Shift

had two pieces on CBC’s Shift. My professor showed some of our pieces, and out of the 10 choosen, two were mine.

One was a documentary I did about my brother and his girlfriend. They tented on some land in North Tetagouche so that they could spend their summer gardening, raising chickens and turkeys, and helping the neighbors.

The other piece was a commentary with sound. It’s about trying out a hearing aid, and whether I even want to hear all the annoying high pitch sounds that I couldn’t hear from birth. There’s no music. It’s also my first attempt at a monologue and writing a story about myself. I still kind of like it.

Monologue With Music

I like this. It’s one voice telling a story, accented with music. It’s a great way to combine my love for writing music and journalism.  I think the ideal length is around 3 minutes.

It can be done by cutting down an interview and making the interviewee the narrator. This story came from an hour long interview. The name has been changed.

It can also be done with a personal story or commentary. This is one I did for a friend’s show about bucket lists. It’s about why I like goals more than I like achieving them.
