A must listen for all Hamiltonians!

Brian does a fantastic job interviewing prominent leaders in the Hamilton community in the Discover #HamOnt Podcast. It is refreshing to have a podcast that focuses on great quality content, the stories of the individuals, but also their favourite parts about Hamilton and what makes it such a unique place to live, work, and play.

There are so many great places to explore in Hamilton, events to attend, and incredible entrepreneurs building exciting businesses and initiatives - a lot of which are behind the scenes or not heavily publicized. Brian's podcast dives deep into those as well as the people behind them, giving you a completely new perspective on Hamilton and the individuals that are driving the city forward.
