Please take a second to click on this link and marvel at our universe. Each dot on that picture represents a galaxy of around 100 billion stars. Amazing.

New podcast is up and as always you can find it over there–> In this episode I talk about eating disorders. You can find lots of information and statistics about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of eating disorders by visiting the website of the National Eating Disorder Information Centre. This topic is relevant because of The Alder Fork Festival, which is raising money for the Eating Disorder Awareness Coalition of Waterloo Region.

The music comes from two True North Records artists, Madison Violet, and Le Vent Du Nord.

We All Live

Brand new podcast up tonight. As always you can find it over there –> or here. I talk about community, which was inspired by Jean Vanier’s Becoming Human.  The music is provided by Madison Violet and The Mighty Blue Ford. These two Canadian acts are quite enjoyable.  Madison Violet has been around for awhile, but they are putting out their first new album in 3 years.  They have a number of upcoming shows in southern Ontario (and one in Scotland) and I definitely recommend checking out their sweet folky charm.  The Mighty Blue Ford is a side project with a definite nod to the music of Bruce Cockburn (intentional or not).  The Winnipeg-based artist has certainly caught my ear.
