This episode will be a simulcast episode with my friend Eric's show, the Open Topic Podcast. We combined our shows for one special Monday and basically interviewed each other. And we covered all the cool topics like war, religion, gay rights, codes of conduct on a podcast, and last but not least, my family.
Hope you will enjoy this joint venture episode and be sure to listen to both our shows...do it at the same time!!
Silence is acceptance
That's a powerful statement and one that is made towards the end of the interview with my guest Marion Frame, making her Part II return after being unable to participate in the following week of her last airing interview due to some illness and some personal crisis. She is back, and she's got a lot to say as this interview takes on a decidedly dark turn from the origins of her family name, to some disturbing times in her family history found through tracing back her roots. It's a unique journey and I am proud to bring it to you. Thanks Marion for being so open and honest.

I have an interesting interview coming up with 'RICHARD' here...a future guest (I hope!) that I'm trying to woo into doing a full on interview on the podcast some day, but like all good things they take time to produce and nurture, so that's what I am doing here; giving him just a taste at what it's like to be in the 'hot seat' as it were, as I provided him with a light-hearted questionnaire to complete we could all get to know him a bit better.
My big thanks to him for being a good sport, answering all the questions and giving this episode a unique theme. The campaign starts NOW. GIVE US RICHARD. GIVE US RICHARD. The audience has spoken...
Shawna 'Dual Citizenship' Robinson is pretty cool - she's toured so many different places and so many wonderful and unique experiences and done it all at a young age. Puts me to shame. Luckily, I am still pretty young too.....
On another note, we of course discuss her travels, how she was bitten by the travel bug (the good kind!), from a planned school trip to travelling on her own, where she has been and where she plans to be going. We talk about what life was like for her living in Copenhagen, Denmark for awhile on a student visa, how security and safety awareness has changed in recent times during terrorist attacks in many countries, her visit to the Canadian soldiers grave site at the beaches of Normandy, and also we discuss where she plans to settle down and work in the future. I'll give you a hint: it's not Canada! Plus, you also may have her to hold responsible for your bus schedule in the near future.
Take a journey on this podcast interview, thank you Shawna for being a sport and entertaining me and all the listeners for the next hour.
