    Ep. 80 Where We Live: Walking Home During and After a Crisis. A talk with Urban Planner, Ken Greenberg

    Welcome to Episode No. 79 – for this Tuesday, April 28, 2020.



    If this season has taught us anything, it’s that certain industries and jobs are much more resilient than others during a crisis. Today’s episode takes a look at the radio industry, which is not immune to the COVID19 crisis, despite being what many consider, an essential service.



    For today’s show, we have the privilege of speaking with Fred Jacobs, president of Jacobs Media and radio personality of Overnight America, Ryan Wrecker, to talk about how radio has changed during COVID19 and what it could be in the future.

    Ep. 78. We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Boat – CERB Expected to Expand. A talk with Irek Kusmierczyk.

    Ep. 78. We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Boat – CERB Expected to Expand. A talk with Irek Kusmierczyk.

    This pandemic, in addition to our health concerns, has brought the issue of work (or lack thereof) and our means to earn a living, front and centre. In this episode, we discuss the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB), which started Monday, April 6th, 2020, as a temporary measure to provide funds for individuals and families while helping to shore up the economy until the next new normal. This is a plan that had to come about quickly – and so it’s no surprise that it’s not perfect and now seems merely a start. If you’ve been excluded from this benefit or have yet to apply, please stay tuned.



    Irek Kusmierczyk, the Parliamentary Secretary to Minister Qualtrough, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development, and Disability Inclusion, joins us on today’s show to help answer some of the questions and concerns expressed by listeners of the show. It’s an interesting talk – but by the end of this episode, if you still have concerns, please reach out to me – and I’ll try and source some answers by next show.



    We’re going to be okay. We just need a bigger boat. ♡

    Show Notes

    Welcome to Episode No. 77 – for this Sunday, April 5th, 2020.



    COVID-19 has brought to the forefront the importance of people and services that we may have all taken for granted, like the delivery people who have become a lifeline for our households, our healthcare workers, the frontline staff in your grocery store. Their work is considered essential – leaving a lot of those unable to work, wondering what to do next.



    Thankfully our government has put into place the COVID-19 Economic Response Plan to help those who need it most – a plan that had to come together quickly, which includes the new Canada Emergency Response benefit, set to commence this week.



    Canadian labour lawyer, Shelley Brown from Toronto joins us to discuss these emergency measures here in Canada as they relate to workers and employers.



    I'll see you later in the week. Again, stay safe. Be well. ♡

    Ep 76. Crisis x 2: Sourcing Water for the Navajo Nation during COVID-19

    Ep 76. Crisis x 2: Sourcing Water for the Navajo Nation during COVID-19

    Today’s show focuses on a community facing two crises at once. For weeks we have been told that our number one defense against COVID-19 is to wash our hands. But imagine being here in Canada, or the United States, arguably a couple of the most advanced countries in the world, and not having the water to put this mainline defense in motion.



    During this episode, we check in with George McGraw, founder of DigDeep and the Navajo Water Project, to discuss how a lack of water resources is putting the already-vulnerable communities, like Navajo Nation, at even greater risk. We’ll also talk about a new study that will hopefully help better direct future infrastructure efforts in the US – and perhaps help spur on similar efforts here in Canada.

    Ep 75. Social Distancing from my New City, Street View

    Ep 75. Social Distancing from my New City, Street View

    During this episode, I open up a bit about my experience living alone in a new city during a pandemic – one we are all just beginning to know. This show is about coping with social distancing and isolation, as well as leaning in to working on your own while still collaborating with others. It's about looking for and finding – the humanity amongst the chaos.



    If you're new to the show, or if you've listened before, the format of this episode is a bit different from my norm, but nothing about right now feels normal.



    Be safe. ♡
