    Showing Up with Nancy Regan (Bonus Episode)

    Join us for a special bonus episode of Canadian Love Map, where we turn the tables and interview our beloved host, Nancy Regan.
    Nancy just released her first book, “From Showing Off To Showing Up: An Impostor's Journey from Perfect to Present”, which sold out on Amazon in less than a week. The book also topped the Amazon charts at #9 on the hot new releases list, #15 in memoirs and #3 on Mover's and Shakers, before it was even released. The book provides an honest glimpse into Nancy's life in the spotlight with a side of self-help. 
    Leading the ship this week is special guest host, Starr Cunningham. Starr is the president and CEO of the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia, and like Nancy, a former longtime TV broadcaster. Nancy passed the torch to Starr before leaving her 15 year stint hosting Live at Five on CTV Atlantic.
    In this special episode, these two friends have a heartfelt conversation about Nancy's labour of love and discuss the importance of getting rid of our masks and showing up as our true selves.

    Woman To Woman, Side By Side

    Woman To Woman, Side By Side

    "To all of you who still have your moms, give them a real big super duper hug from me this Mother's Day, because you're doing what I would love to be doing." Today's love story belongs to celebrated Canadian author Donna Morrissey.
    The subtitle of her 2021 book "Pluck" slug makes it clear what it's about: a memoir of a Newfoundland childhood and the raucous, terrible, amazing journey to becoming a novelist. But also woven into the book is an extraordinary love story between Donna and her mom. 
    In this special episode, Donna shares insights from her Newfoundland upbringing, collaborating with her mother on her book "Kit's Law" and supporting her mother through a battle with cancer.
    This Mother's Day episode is dedicated to the late Claudine Adele Ford Morrissey.

    A Rockin' Romance

    A Rockin' Romance

    Sometimes you need to see someone in a new light for the sparks to fly.  Today's love story belongs to Tamara and Len. Once upon a time they were both single parents and Len's daughter was one of Tamara's students. But this parent teacher dynamic did not start off with high marks.
    After some bumpy interactions, it was a messy but memorable relay for life event that sparked this flame.  
    They soon learned that they had much more in common than they initially thought. Now these two are enjoying life as one big family.

    Off The Beaten Path

    Off The Beaten Path

    It started with a chance meeting before a fundraising concert on a frigid February night. But things warmed up fast when these two artists laid eyes on one another.
     
    This week's love story belongs to Mike and Kristen from Nova Scotia.
     
    The pair bonded over the arts, Mike in music as the frontman of The Town Heroes, and Kristen as a visual abstract artist. 
     
    Their latest creative collaboration is a fun new book called “You and Me: Travel, Misadventures, and Love around the world”, where they share stories of their romance and freewheeling escapades around the world. They also launched a new podcast called "Mike and Kristen".
     
    These two are truly up for anything and are living proof that going off the beaten path can lead to beautiful destinations.

    Love At The Border of War

    Love At The Border of War

    When a war breaks out across the sea, it's so easy to feel helpless. This week's story belongs to someone who dropped everything and made his way to the Ukraine Polish border to help, face to face.  Forbes March is a British-born, Canadian actor, model, businessman, husband, and father. He heard the cry for help from Ukraine loud and clear. Forbes, along with two brave friends, decided to travel to Poland to help distribute goods to women and children in need, while also joining other volunteer efforts.
    What he experienced changed him. But as he recounts, even in a war zone, the good can be found in the helpers.

    An On Set Family

    An On Set Family

    The magic of movies is that they open our eyes to the lives of others, inspire connection and provide hope. Today's love story belongs to "Dawn, Her dad and The Tractor".  That's the Canadian film that's making waves internationally, and maybe even changing the world. The story features a young trans woman, Dawn, who returns to her hometown that remembers her as a boy. There, she reconnects with her family and repairs a relationship with her father.
    Dawn is played by trans actor and activist Maya V. Henry. Her father, John Andrew, is played by Rob Wells famous for his portrayal of Ricky in the phenomenally successful Trailer Park Boys franchise. Another TPB alumnus,  Shelly Thompson is the writer, director and producer of this piece of art.
    Shelley, Maya and Rob joined us for a conversation about the love for the film's story, their experience working together as an on-set family and the positive impacts of the film.
    Dawn, Her Dad and The Tractor is now streaming across Canada on CRAVE.
