Aaron Smith is loud, proud and boisterous and gets his point across. And I would not have it any other way! I've been trying to track him down for a few months now and I'm proud to finally bring you this interview. I visit his six person home, where we talk about all the trips he's taken to exciting places around that meant absolutely nothing to him (he's not a fan of travelling), we talk about his career in the security field and how it finally led him to working in a place that he feels comfortable in, we talk about how he doesn't want to talk politics, and we discuss his earliest (or best) childhood memory. Aaron is honest and forthcoming and he tells it like it is, was, and ever will be. It's the life of Aaron Smith; if you don't have a seatbelt in your home, now is the time to get one, because you'll be needing to fasten it!
We also have music from Matthew Johnston and I go on a rant about "Timmies" Tim Horton's, just for you Richard Mystery!

Meet Penelope Goranson, singer/songwriter/actress/model and breast cancer warrior. We touch on many different topics and all are ones that I want to explore more of, but we were short on time as her and her husband Kent (big thank you to him for letting me record in his telescope shop) were heading to another appointment, but still I'm so grateful for the time that I got, and she also played live for me, right then and there, her original song 'Stargazing' written as a gift to her husband, which you'll hear right here on this episode. We also talk about how she went to live with her aunt in Scotland when she was 17, how she started a challenging modeling career, and how she met Paul McCartney?! And of course, some other stuff.
I also feature in the show some more music from the awesome Matthew Johnston and as well, Chad Vice visits the Apple Store. What a trip!

Bullying is described as: a person who uses strength or power to harm or intimidate those who are weaker.
synonyms: persecutor, oppressor, tyrant, tormentor, intimidator
When we think of bullies we think back to our high school years, and even though it was horrible when we went through it and we felt alone, and at the time, it was the only thing that consumed our minds. We would now probably look back on it as just part of growing up and it made us who we are today. But what was happening to us was not right then and it's still not right now. In this day and age it seems like the levels of violence and personal humiliation that some will go to has been taken to another level, like cyber bullying and things like that. Attacks are more personal and more random than ever. I spoke with a young man, 14 years old, who was recently the victim of a serious physical attack at the hands of another youth whom he didn't even know, and all over a new haircut? Now he wants to speak out on bullying, and not just about what happened to him but about bullying in general and how he personally advocates to bring a stop to bullying in his school and in his community.
