This is an account of what it is like to be a Saskatchewan Music D lister, and about the industry, topics that are of importance, social issues and everything in between as told from my vantage point and the points of view from my varied guests.
Pride Month the haze code and Row vs Wade
Prior to the overturning of Row vs Wade I had a chance to talk to the very talented and well versed poet, artist, theatre person and activist Elise Pallagi. She is a vibrant and engaging individual and I really took my time to get this episode just right.
This episode covers many topics that are possible triggerwaring topics they are:
Coffee, Songwriting and Possibly Realty TV

Multi Medium Super Cool Friend Chats

Jon is a visual artist of paint/sketching, sculpture, miniatures, and so many other creative things related to physical objects. Along with that He is a talented skateboarder who posts skate videos regularly and an avid miniature skateboard inthusiest. Jon also is a very talented multi instrument musician/film maker. Yes a genius of many things. I am super stoked about this episode and about one of my coolest friend's many creative projects.
Into The Cycle of Emo, Loss and Discontent
In this episode I talk about what I am going through in some of the darkest of inner monologues. I also lost some people I really loved and cared for. My heart really feels an intense amount of sadness and grief. I dedicated this episode to anyone out there feeling lonely, isolated and also grieving the loss of ones that they lost and miss. Specific the one that is so near and dear to my, my closest inner circle and the music community as a whole.
I believe we all grieve in many ways and that grief is a learning experience, although painful, it's a never-ending process that we must face until its our turn.
