Episode 21 – Calgary Summer Camps for a 6 yo For all of you parents out there – this is a great go to article pre-covid obviously for summer camps & top pick for our house is….
Episode 22 – Calgary’s Lodgepole Pine, PinusContorta This episode is about Calgary , Alberta’s local forests more specifically PinusContorta – that’s a mouthful!
Episode 23 – Calgary Pay Attention This quick segment is discussing Calgary languages first English, second is…? What language do you speak?
Episode 24 – Calgary History: William (Bill) Shelever 1977 This was a true group project using voices from other people to make this story come alive. Another top post I’m extremely proud of – this falling officer, new baby in his young wife’s tummy & a prisoner in the end who wants conjugal visits.
Episode 25 – behind the Shelever Episode Rookie Cop Shot and how many podcaster voices make this story come to life and where they came from – that made this previous episode happen – such a great collection of talent showcasing an important subject matter.
Episode 26 – Review: Ten, 5 & Humanity A lingering Episode why? Because of a man, down on his luck, with his special orange rock, a vegetarian go to family style restaurant with an even nicer washroom and the kindest act of Humanity!
Episode 27 – Vsquared Promo Take One A great go to for first time listeners, we answer the Why’s, questions about the Calgary weather, Interviews with Wardens, expatriates, crime and being summoned…Anything here sound delicious to listen to check it out!
Episode 28 – Compass? Which Way! UGH are you like me and you have no honing device a fun episode where we talk about internal compass.
Episode 29 – New Podcasts for U Where it’s a series or a story told over a few episodes or something like NPR this is a great list of some of my favs. A small down full of Dicks and serial crime with a little Helen Gimlet uncovered. A great go to for the best podcasts.
Episode 30 – Signs Signs Everywhere is signs My entire career is based on signage and here’s the one project that changed me, the international wing of the Calgary International Airport or the IFP Project.

Episode 34 – Friends What does it mean to have a true friend, trust and loyalty and savouring the moment of this person – Amber!
Episode 35 – Mental Health Podcast Challenge I won an award for this write up, it was true and honest and I believe we all go through bouts of mental health challenges – if you never feel low or sad, you don’t get to enjoy true happiness as you don’t have a comparison!
Episode 36 – TMT: Calgary Scottish Roots Or should I say Calaghearridh, meaning pasture by the bay, and where Calgary got her name!
Episode 37 – Loco Parentis: Student vs Institution In this episode I discuss the role the schools play on behalf of parents – they act as a parent to our children, this is the trust we place on teachers and schools, is this line blurry? (Artwork updated)
Episode 38 – Concrete at The Glenbow A cast cement art piece representing our Calgary, Alberta heritage, oil, wheat, cowboy hat and chinook arch.
Episode 39 – Taxi! This is when I started to play with recording backgrounds and using this in my shows…this was such an interesting conversation with a Taxi Driver from Pakistan and his family story, yes we discuss OBGYNs.
Episode 40 – Activities for Kids & Parents In this episode I talk about group sports with kids and parent as London and I started taking karate together – and boy was this successful.
Episode 41 – Banff Mountain Getaway One thing about me is, I love the mountains, love the sun on my face and the snow all around me, I love to walk in the snow…here’s a trip we took through the mountains of Banff, which is about an hour and a half from where we live, lucky right?
So what did you think about part 2, it’s been amazing to go back and revisit these shows, so much I’ve learned about myself (love the winters) and about this great city that I’ve put down some serious roots. My favourite episode about humanity and the man with his orange rock, the dogs safe tale, our chinooks and more – all links to this shows of course in the show notes along with updated episode artwork.
