    Tara Slone is a multi-talented Canadian, known for her rock n' roll history and co-hosting of Hometown Hockey on Hockey Night in Canada, with Ron Maclean.

    Episode 58 - Rachel Gemara: A Nurse's Account Inside a Covid19 Ward in Israel

    Episode 58 - Rachel Gemara: A Nurse's Account Inside a Covid19 Ward in Israel

    These Corona Virus times are tough for all of us, some more than others. I think we all agree, our front line workers, those smack in the middle of the craziness, are to be embraced for their courage, expertise and ability to respond professionally to this unknown medical nightmare. In that light, please have a listen to this very special interview with Rachel Gemara, a nurse at Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem, Israel who volunteered to work in the hospital's newly launched Covid19 ward. Listen to why she decided to step-up and her account of the last moments of Israel's first victim of this pandemic, Holocaust Survivor, Aryeh Even. This is an amazing discussion with Rachel, and important insight into the inner workings of a Covid19 environment in Israel.

    Corona Radio 7 - Ellen Schwartz: Unstoppable Love...Jacob's Mom!

    Corona Radio 7 - Ellen Schwartz: Unstoppable Love...Jacob's Mom!

    Welcome to Corona Radio 7 with our very special guest, Ellen Schwartz. Ellen is a special soul, who together with her husband and children, raised a son, Jacob, who had Canavan Disease, a progressive neurodegenerative disease. The doctors said Jacob would live until around five. He passed away last January at 21 years old. What motivated Jacob's powerful life force? Love, then more love, and more and more. In this Corona virus time, when inspiration and hope are crucial have a listen to my schmooze with Ellen. Here are some of her quotes: "When we stopped trying to fix Jacob, he started fixing us."  "When your heart is broken, it forces you to open up and see all the love around you." "He (Jacob) was pure goodness...everything good in the world was inside of him." Corona Radio is a subsidiary of HatRadio!, which will be back. We'll be okay folks. We're humankind

    Corona Radio 6 - Kim Smiley: The Queen of Empathy

    Corona Radio 6 - Kim Smiley: The Queen of Empathy

    I decided to change my format when the Carona virus began visiting us. I figured its wiser  to go to 1/2 hour and hopefully bring a succinct calming voice to HatRadio! listeners. I therefore launched Carona Radio highliting acts of kindness.  I'm bringing on guests who are empathetic in nature, positive, and hopeful, one of whom is Kim Smiley. Kim is called the Queen of Empathy. She has intertwined empathy with fashion and shared the outcome with us on Corona Radio. Kim says life is short, fleeting, and now is the time for us to seize the day and get out of our heads, above technology, and reach out to those in need. "Put the spotlight on others", she says. Have a listen...very inspiring...very compelling. Stay safe. Stay healthy. This too will pass. It will because we are humankind! Please subscribe at hatradio.ca/subscribe/      
    Thank you to the Alberga Family, and the Gryfe Family for sponsoring Carona Radio. I'm grateful for their understanding of the importance of our message. Hugs.
