    How to persevere with Cadence Weapon

    How to persevere with Cadence Weapon

    I first met rapper Cadence Weapon, also known as Rollie Pemberton, while I was working at MuchMusic in Toronto. I remember that my colleagues and I were very excited by the idea of Canada’s next big rap star being a teenager from Edmonton. Since that time, Cadence Weapon has created five albums, served as the poet laureate of Edmonton and won the prestigious Polaris Music Prize for his album Parallel World in 2021.
     
    Last year, Rollie wrote about his struggles with an exploitative record label contract, an issue he also explores in his new memoir, Bedroom Rapper. After reading what he was going through during a years-long setback, I’m in awe of his ability to keep being brilliant, successful and creative without regrets or bitterness. In this episode, I speak with Rollie about his unwavering belief in his art and how he perseveres.

    How to be the Internet’s Favourite Dad (aka be yourself on social media) with Brittlestar

    How to be the Internet’s Favourite Dad (aka be yourself on social media) with Brittlestar

    Brittlestar, or Stewart Reynolds, is known as the Internet’s Favourite Dad. Stumbling into becoming a content creator as a second career, he has been making viral videos for almost a decade. His videos channel his comedic dad persona while touching on poignant and explosive topics–for example, calling out anti-vaxxers. 
    In this episode, I ask Stewart for advice on how to be very public with opinion, and personality, in a world that is not always hospitable to hot takes (yes, I’m looking at you, social media).

    How to have tough conversations about racism featuring Indigenous educators Kelly Brownbill and Madelaine McCracken

    How to have tough conversations about racism featuring Indigenous educators Kelly Brownbill and Madelaine McCracken

    Anti-Indigenous racism is built into the foundation of Canada. The more truthfully we face that fact, the better we can take up our ongoing obligation to combat it (if you’re non-Indigenous, like me, I’m looking at you). 
     
    But when it comes to having conversations about Canada’s colonial past and present, it can be hard to know where to start. I asked two educators to join me today, who each have expertise in doing this with different audiences. 
     
    Our first guest is Kelly Brownbill, who teaches workshops with the goal of healthy, equitable relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and communities. Our second guest is Madelaine McCracken from the First Nations Child & Family Caring Society, whose work is geared towards children. Between the two of them, I hope you get lots of actionable takeaways today.

    How to break the bystander effect with Julie Lalonde

    How to break the bystander effect with Julie Lalonde

    Last fall, a woman was sexually assaulted on public transit in Philadelphia. And there was a ton of social media disbelief – how could other passengers just sit there and not do anything? 
    That’s why I reached out to Julie Lalonde for my podcast. Julie is a women’s rights advocate and public educator, and she’s been teaching bystander intervention for over 10 years.
    In this episode, Julie gives us life-changing tools for how to react when we witness harmful behaviour, whether it’s violence, hate crimes, catcalling, or online abuse. Ultimately, her tools are about creating safe communities and once I learned them, it changed the way I saw everything. 
    This episode references sexual assault and gender-based violence. Please listen with care.

    How to embrace a totally different kind of life with Eliza Reid

    How to embrace a totally different kind of life with Eliza Reid

    Eliza Reid is the First Lady of Iceland. However, I know her from twenty years ago, when we were friends living in the same university dorm.
    Clearly, Eliza’s life has taken twists and turns, so I wanted to talk to her about how to jump into a whole new kind of life–which is what she’s done by learning a language and culture and starting over in a different country. 
    We also talk about Eliza’s new book called Secrets of the Sprakkar: Iceland’s Extraordinary Women and How They Are Changing the World, and what we may be able to learn from Iceland.

    How to help kids (& adults) spot fake news with Joyce Grant

    How to help kids (& adults) spot fake news with Joyce Grant

    When it comes to bots, trolls, and conspiracy theories, I have many questions. So many, it’s hard to know where to start. And if I don’t understand what’s been designed to trick me, how will I break it down for my kids?
    Luckily, I stumbled upon a book called, Can You Believe it? How to spot fake news and find the facts, by journalist and author Joyce Grant. In this episode, we talk about how to teach kids to navigate online misinformation while they are learning to process the world around them. What I’m learning from Joyce is that the lessons we need to give our kids are actually good for all of us.

Human and resonant

Such fascinating people sharing stories that are human, intimate, and resonant, as if we were kibbitzing over coffees and pastries. Hannah’s voice is so warm and friendly. Just wish each episode was a tiny bit longer!

Refreshing perspective

I really liked this podcast. I listened to the Cadence Weapon and Brittlestar episodes. I liked the perspectives Hannah brought and the way she gently directed her guests back for the most impact. I thought the Cadence Weapon story was very inspiring and loved his positive outlook at the end. The brittlestar episode didn’t appeal to me as much but I liked the angle of the children’s privacy. I appreciate the Canadian perspective. Excited to see what this podcast does next!
