Drawing from their 18 years together, hosts Michael & Laura explore relationships, personal responsibility, feminine and masculine dynamics, communication & just some all-around real and raw conversations.
With a bit of sarcasm, humor, tears, a few f*bombs, and lots of love, they deep dive into the male and female perspectives on relationships and navigating the highs & lows of life together.
Using The Gift of Storytelling To Enact Change — With Kendal Netmaker
If you’ve ever used your upbringing or your past as an excuse, this is an episode you can’t afford to miss.
Mike sits down and chats with Kendal Netmaker, award-winning entrepreneur, author, and keynote speaker who is on a mission to empower and motivate people around the world by sharing his story of resilience and leadership. He and his siblings were raised by their single mother in Sweetgrass First Nation, and although surrounded by poverty and very few opportunities, he was able to rise up and harness his gift of storytelling to help change the world.
Listen in as Kendal shares his story of entrepreneurship against the odds, how he bet on himself and never let his failures stop him, and why the best foundation starts in the home. We also chat about the power of owning your story (no matter what it entailed!) using your story to lift yourself up, and why it’s often the best leaders who have overcome the most in life.
Keeping Indigenous Knowledge Alive with John Langan
John Langan is an award-winning author and a speaker who has touched thousands with his story on resilience, perseverance, and intergenerational residential school trauma. He’s also a soldier, a police officer, traditional knowledge and language keeper, and a father and husband. He stopped by the show to share some fantastic wisdom about growing up Indigenous and overcoming life’s many obstacles.
We get into so much, including what drove John to share the beauty of Indigenous culture and ceremony, what it means to bring back the warrior society in a modern sense, and how to approach elders respectfully. He also shares his perspective on the importance of fathers, what it’s like raising daughters, and how youth can stay on the right track and out of trouble!

The Power of a Man’s Purpose — With Michael & Laura LaRocque
What does it mean to be a man?
There are probably a thousand different answers to this question, but there is one thing that is certain no matter how you define what a man is: if he’s not living to his purpose, he will not find true happiness.
In this episode we’re diving into what it looks like when men are living purposefully, including what it can look like in their relationships, as fathers, and more importantly, how they feel about themselves.
We’re also getting a look into Mike’s brain to get his perspective on what it means to live with purpose, and he’ll discuss how he turned things around to find his own purpose in life.
The power of a man’s purpose is about so much more than “being a man” - it can shift the whole balance and dynamic in your relationships and your entire life for the better, which will ultimately work to make the world a better place!

A Birth Story - With Michael & Laura LaRocque
We had a baby!
This probably wasn’t a surprise for anyone because no one can stay pregnant forever, but it certainly felt like a possibility in the weeks leading up to the birth of Bear.
In this episode, we’re diving into the details of the birth, from the lead-up with the castor oil eviction notice to Bear being born ‘en caul,’ to what it was like having Lennox present for the labour and birth.
We also talk about our experience with our midwives and why we chose to have a home birth (and how it didn’t exactly go as planned).
If you love birth stories, this is an episode you definitely won’t want to miss!
