Pursuit of Happiness #6 "Weed's legal in Canada...So why's it so scary now?"

Pursuit of Happiness #5 ft. Kate Stevens (Musician)

Welcome back everyone! First things first, This episode will be a little different then the past few. With full respect for my guest and appreciation for her being here, It was asked that we keep this episode "G" - "PG" rated. Wasn't easy but this one is 100% safe to listen to with the family. The intro and outro to this weeks episode has also been replaced with an original, unreleased track performed LIVE in studio entitled "Meant for me". We end the show with a beautiful cover of GnR's "Sweet Child O'Mine". Most wouldn't believe it but my style preference for music swings wildly. I can get down with intense metal like Carbomb, Antigama, Red Chord, etc. But then swings the pendulum of emotions and sometimes the beast needs to sleep. There is nothing better then a slow, soulful jazz riff. A deep base with soft trumpets set to the beat of a simple hi-hat. The beast purrs. My guest this week is well known across Canada and has been awarded with many honors. Shes been heard on CBC and ...

Pursuit of Happiness #3.5 ft. Emily Ripley & Cam ( Dead Body Discovery )

E*Listener Discretion is Advised* Welcome back to Part 2 of this crazy ass conversation. We begin with my story of finding a dead body in the parking lot at work. If you are squeamish and do not care for graphic stories then please skip ahead about 15min. We transition into slightly lighter topics when we discuss in detail just how Emily and Cam got ripped off by a local producer. We talk tattoos and I then share my story of also being ripped off during my apprenticeship. Aside from the dead guy, I share a lot more stories in our new segment "Porn-Stories" including one about a guy smoking crack in the store. Trust me, there is no shortage of story's when it comes to working in a porn store. #Pornstories !!Podcast Review!!

Pursuit of Happiness #3 ft. Emily Ripley & Cam (How Sentimental)

EWe began the series strong and with some pretty in depth interviews but this time we let loose and have fun with a few friends of the studio. I'm joined by local superstar Emily Ripley and close friend/artist/collaborators Cam (How Sentimental). Its my first time meeting "How Sentimental" and my first time really getting to know Emily. Both ended up being great guests and great hangs. We enjoy some "Hey Ya'll" hard icetea (recommended by our guests) and start the show with an explanation into a song Cam had done involving a terrible relationship he just went through. Discuss Emily's physically abusive relationship. On a lighter note, I learn about Broken City's "Rock'n For Dollars", and many new stories in a new segment im calling "Porn-Stories" including one about a women who shit on our floor.

Pursuit of Happiness #7 ft. Visha Loo ( The hilarious and tragic suicide of Richard Russel )

EWelcome Back! We are joined this week by Visha Loo AND last minute addition Rolando Ferreira!! I've been dying to have Visha on since the creation of this show. You may remember her being mentioned in past episodes as I told story's about events she has put on. Now we get to learn all about them first hand.

Roli is the mussel, the mouth, and half of all that is Visha. weather that's promotional advertising, marketing, set building...he is there hand and hand.

Pursuit of Happiness #2 ft. Maria Joaquin (Strvngers)

EWhat's a better way to represent the mental health scene then witnessing a panic/anxiety attack first hand. I get star struck at the top of the show and WIFF HARD. After a deep breath and introducing my very warming guest I was able to re-center myself and ended up with one hell of a episode. My guest this week️ Maria Joaquin ️ Maria Joaquin is the lead singer and other half of the post-punk electro dark wave group Stravngers @strvngersband - Pronounced "Strangers" We discuss Strvngers in the beginning and shift hard into Maria himself. I was hooked during the story of his fathers immigration from El Salvador. I learn a new way to mentally approach tough situations and ultimately had a blast!! Also check out Maria's IG page for incredible charcoal art. Shout out KC @kylecrvig who couldn't be here this time. Much respect though for taking care of his own physical and mental health Strvngers will be performing at Infest UK @infestfestival for the 20th anniversary Aug 23-26 in West Y...

Pursuit of Happiness #1 ft. Firozeh "Frozen" Habibi (Pilot aka "..And Stuff")

EWhat's up everyone! I am very excited to share with you a project that has been near and dear to me for a while now. In spite of traditional therapy I have decided to seek guidance from my peers and others in my pursuit of happiness. As someone who suffers with deep depression, anxiety, panic attacks, minor OCD and other odd phobias...this should get interesting! In the beginning the show was going to be 3 things. The first being a weed podcast. A way to explain and demonstrate cannabis methods of use, growth, and educational material for those new to the "soon to be" legal scene. It was then going to be a show about mental health and ways to cope along with methods of maintaining happiness. And finally it was going to be a podcast review show.... What we got was a show that picks the brains of interesting guests and how they personally deal with mental stress, depression, anxiety, etc. We try and keep it light but inevitably it can get dark. In the end we discuss our favorite podca...
