This podcast explores the human side of the Government of Canada. The public service is us... and we have stories, perspectives, hope, and good humour to share in abundance.
Child of a Child
At the heart of every Toddcast episode is a personal conversation. Editing reduces it for length, accelerates the story for dramatic effect, and puts everything in the correct order when events are remembered out of sequence. Music and monologue turn it into something we recognize as a podcast. But what does a human story sound like, organic and unprocessed? In this unedited chat with Natasha Fraser, she remembers her life growing up as the child of a teenage mother.
The Jagged Path
Mackenzie Kitchen shares a truth that we should all take to heart. There is no straight path to success.
