Frisky shines a light on the honest side of dating north of the 60th parallel. Hear about relationships that start or end under the midnight sun, the ins and outs of dating hunters and hipsters, and navigating the interconnectedness of small town dating.
E14 When you free your heel you capture my heart
Skiing and dating are popular Yukon pastimes but do they mix? We speak to a skier who says there's nothing like a date in the mountains followed by dinner in a cozy backcountry cabin to get to know someone on a deeper level. But, hooking up at a ski race after-party can be fun too....
E13 Alaska, where the odds are as odd as the goods
Alaska and the Yukon share a more than 2,000 km (1,300 mi.) border, and while these northern neighbours have many things in common, there are also some distinct differences about dating in "The Last Frontier."
E12 Opened hearts in open marriage
Happy Valentine's Day! To join us in this day of celebrating love and connection, we have Jeramy's story of how he and his partner co-created their open marriage. From small-town Alberta to small-town Whitehorse, Jeramy shares his journey into polyamory and how he and his wife make it work.
E11 Festivals, freedom camping, and fire morels
People can find love in the most unexpected of places-even when they come from opposite ends of the world. Enter Michelle and Cyprian, newcomers to Canada. The setting is Keno City, once home to one of the richest silver deposits in the world. This tiny, isolated community of fifteen or so residents is also host to a free grassroots music and film festival. From festivals to freedom camping, Frisky North of 60 explores Michelle and Cyprian's experience of picking fire morels in the Yukon's vast backcountry.
E10 Hometown dating
Sarah left Whitehorse at age 19 for the sights, sounds, and schooling down south. She returned home several years later, fresh from a break up and needing to heal. Sarah tells us what it was like starting to date in her hometown with a fresh perspective, and what she discovered about her city--and herself--along the way.
E9 Must love dogs
"If you want to be my lover, you gotta get with my [dogs]...." Yukoners love dogs. At least, many do. But our canine friends can get in the way of our loves lives, particularly if they require a lot of time and energy. KB's dogs fall into that category, but she wouldn't have it any other way.

New to Relationships
I love hearing other people’s dating experiences. I've never been in a relationship. I haven't really had to get to know someone I've always had my lifelong friends, but now they're off at university. Being able to get to know people is an important skill to have. Especially since I want to have some more friends and also have a girlfriend eventually. This year I have been taking to work on myself. To grow my personality and learn more about myself.
Bringing it to the forefront
Dating in the Yukon is the most painful experience. There is definitely a different dating culture up here then elsewhere, it leaves a lot to be desired. Unfortunately, there is very throw away culture, that people are disposable perhaps even recycled, for the most part. It’s a hurtful place, I m content with my cat.
“The odds are good, but the goods are odd!”
This show gets better and better as the hosts dive deeper into small-town dating in the far Northwest of Canada. Great interviews and illuminating perspectives from guests and hosts on the challenges of modern dating, using apps, COVID, a transient population, and a limited dating pool. Love the humorous and relaxed approach to this conversation. My main takeaway is how glad I am to no longer be dating!
