Take a deep dive with James Collins and Alec Cranston as they bring to light the most innovative, trailblazing, and intriguing stories the city of Halifax has to offer.
Episode 9: Second Christmas
In episode 9 of Matter Of ‘Fax, Alec & James brought on their much better halves Jenna & Jen, where wild relationship stories were shared, drinking games were played, and Alec learned how to speak proper English for once. To keep things serious, the fellas started a thoughtful and deep discussion of how to improve Nova Scotia. Luckily this was all done in the Christmas spirit, despite a mid-January release.
Episode 8: The USS Cranston
In episode 8 of Matter Of ‘Fax, Alec & James had none other than the “Red Head Realtor” aka Jonathan Lander on the podcast to discuss the ins and outs of the residential real estate market, along with where we might be headed, and how things have changed over the past couple years. The fellas also discussed the USS Gerald Ford, a behemoth aircraft carrier that docked within the Halifax Harbour, along with the new Timberlea location of North Brewing. Finally, they wrapped everything up with a pretty little bow, as they scoured the internet for wild holiday shopping experiences.
Episode 7: Alec Cranium & James Coffins
In episode 7 of Matter Of ‘Fax, Alec & James were joined by special guest Mr. Adams, an Interpretation supervisor with the Halifax Citadel Society to discuss the unexplained and
supernatural events that have occurred within the walls of the Halifax Citadel. Then, in the spirit of All Hallows Eve, a second and uninvited guest joined the recording to recount their chilling
commercial real estate tale – very very spooky.
Episode 6: Alec & James Forever
In episode 6 of Matter Of ‘Fax, Alec & James kept each other company, with a discussion on Hurricane Fiona, the aftermath of the storm, and the effects it had on not only Nova Scotia, but coastal Atlantic Provinces. A new business was in the spotlight this month as James shared an interesting fast-food concept that will be coming to the Bedford area. Then as always, Alec mispronounced multiple words, and decide to make a few up again – so Shakespearean of him.
Episode 5: Evolution of Halifax
In episode 5 of Matter Of ‘Fax, Alec & James were joined by the one and only, Bill MacAvoy, Managing Director of Cushman & Wakefield Atlantic, to discuss a little history of Halifax and the evolution of the city to what it is now, and what it will be in the future. Shenanigans ensued, as Alec decided to make up words, while James decided to be a robot for the day.
Episode 4: The Gruntled Bluenose
In episode 4 of Matter Of ‘Fax, Alec & James had Sarah Rumley, Executive Director of Cruise Atlantic Canada, and Jo-Anne McLean HIAA’s (Halifax International Airport Authority) Director of Air Service and Airport Experience in the studio to discuss the effects the flight and cruise industries have had on Halifax’s tourism, along with the future of both industries within Nova Scotia. Then, unfortunately, the fellas say goodbye to a certain drive-in theatre, while Alec continues to admire the Halifax harbour and its many ships, including submarines, cargo, and the Bluenose?
Great Show About My Home Town
