    Mayor Jyoti Gondek: Because It Matters

    Mayor Jyoti Gondek: Because It Matters

    It’s easy to get cynical about politics. But Calgary mayor Jyoti Gondek says to heck with that. She’s going all in.
    And it’s not just the hats. She has 5 cowboy hats and 5 pairs of boots. Calgary is now the 3rd most diverse city in Canada. How does she keep everyone happy? Particularly with some controversial comments from premier Danielle Smith and a horse head dumped in Jyoti’s  driveway. We talk about being the first woman and the second POC as Calgary mayor. There may be a focus on her “necklace”. 
    Calgary mayor Jyoti Gondek was born to Punjabi parents who taught her to care for others and stand up for herself. They immigrated to Canada when she was 4. She got her Phd in sociology from the University of Calgary and later became a city councillor in Calgary. In 2021 she became the first woman mayor in the city’s history. We talk to her about  being a politician, running a city in transition and the impossibility of being a “super mom”.

    Allison Dore: Laughing All the Way

    Allison Dore: Laughing All the Way

    Women are not funny, or at least not as funny as men. Men don’t like funny women, they like women who laugh at their jokes, but not their penises. If women are funny, they’re probably lesbians. On and on it goes, despite ample evidence to the contrary. Enter Allison Dore, laughing. Allison is the founder of Howl and Roar Records, a female centric comedy record label that facilitates in the creation and distribution of content, in order to empower artists and help different voices and perspectives be heard. Plus, she’s funny. Allison, Wendy and Mo talk about Christopher Hitchens, atheism, standup, sit down, and trying to be funny in a dangerous time.
    Allison Dore is the host of the entertainment-focused, daily talk radio show The Breakdown, on SiriusXM channel 167. In 2018 she founded Howl & Roar Records, a female-centric comedy record label with a mandate to focus 70% of their output on women in the industry. In the remaining 30% priority is given to men in marginalized communities. Allison is a highly coveted speaker and host, and shares her story of battling mental illness and addiction in order to bring hope to those who are currently struggling.

    Lynsey Addario: Love and War

    Lynsey Addario: Love and War

    Why do they do it? It’s easy to have a theory of why war correspondents put their lives on the line. Are they dealing with trauma? Are they addicted to the adrenalin? Maybe. Maybe they just have big hearts. For more than 20 years, photographer Lynsey Addario has been one of very few women covering conflict around the globe. Afghanistan, Libya, Sudan and now Ukraine. For the New York Times, for National Geographic, often at tremendous risk to her own safety. But of course, we can’t resist. We ask her why. 
    Photographer Lynsey Addario has been kidnapped twice. She puts her life on the line to show the world what war and conflict really look like, most recently in Ukraine. Her work is now being celebrated at the School for Visual Arts in NYC. She's won numerous awards, including a Pulitzer, and was even given a MacArthur genius grant. Our first official genius! We talk to her about still having to prove herself as a woman in the field, about love and war and everything in between.

    Louise Penny: Don't Be Afraid

    Louise Penny: Don't Be Afraid

    There’s Canadian famous, and then there’s Famous famous. Like author Louise Penny. Luckily, she was Wendy’s best friend in grade 9, so we were able to persuade her to come on the podcast. Maureen, Louise and Wendy talk all about friendship, fame, and facing fear. Too many f’s? Well, that’s her motto: Don’t be Afraid. She’s just published book #18 in her Three Pines Inspector Gamache series. A World of Curiosities. She will be speaking at the Indigo bookstore in Toronto on December 2nd, the same day Prime Video launches the Three Pines series with Alfred Molina as Gamache!
    18 books in 18 years! A #1 New York Times Bestseller! Louise Penny’s new book is out, the latest in her Inspector Armand Gamache Three Pines murder mysteries. A World of Curiosities. Often compared to a modern day Agatha Christie, her work is a lot more than cozy, with ill winds blowing in Quebec’s Eastern Townships, the setting for all the murders. We talk about the books, about growing up, and the value of friendship.

    Sass Jordan: Bitches Blues

    Sass Jordan: Bitches Blues

    She’s a badass blues woman with the best laugh in this or any other business. Sass Jordan joins us to talk about female rockers (there aren’t that many), great musicians, and how to spot true talent. Not giving a damn about anything except love, family and creativity, and maybe food and drink. What it’s like to be in Dad territory, as in “My dad thinks you’re hot”. Warning: lots of hooting and hollering, giggling and cackling. 
    Born in England, raised in Montreal, Sarah Jordan became Sass because she’s full of it. Named Most Promising Vocalist by the Junos in 1989, Sass has kept that promise. Billboard listed her as the Top Female Rock Artist of the year in 1992, the year she released “Racine”, her landmark album that made everyone a believer. An actress on stage and screen, Sass also sat as a judge on all six seasons of Canadian Idol. Her latest album, Bitches Blues, featuring the song Still Alive and Well is available on Stony Plain Records.

    Sex with Sue

    You may have had The Talk with one of your parents. You know, the squirmy, uncomfortable and downright incredulous chat about what happens when a man and a woman truly love each other, etc.etc. But for many of us, the fun part of it all came from Sue. Sue Johansen, the feisty, hilarious, and deeply kind creator of Sex with Sue. For decades, on radio and television,in Canada and the U.S., Sue explained how stuff was done, safely and enjoyably. Now filmmaker Lisa Rideout and Sue’s own daughter Jane join us to tell us the deeper story of Sue Johanson, and why her straight-from-the-hip message is more important than ever. 
    Jane Johanson
    Jane Johanson is an actor, singer, dancer and choreographer who has been gracing stages for the past 40 years. From the age of 14, Jane worked as a receptionist at the groundbreaking Don Mills Collegiate birth control clinic for her mom Sue Johanson. Growing up with Sue, Jane learned the value of hard work and fearlessness. Not to mention sewing, knitting, baking and carrying on the tradition of working with sourdough. 
    Lisa Rideout
    Director, Writer, Producer
    Lisa Rideout is an award-winning director who makes films about topics that make people uncomfortable. Death, sex, identity, race, politics and more are presented from a nuanced perspective that challenges stereotypes with the aim of creating more tolerance. She is unafraid to tackle controversial topics and has done so by showcasing the stories of musicians, sex workers, activists, death doulas, adult entertainers and more. Her latest documentary Sex with Sue, about renowned sex expert Sue Johanson, can be seen on WNetwork and Stack TV.
