How to change a life in 6 weeks, blow up the internet in 24 hours and destroy a person’s confidence in an afternoon of texts.

6 weeks ago I entered into a 42 day fitness challenge. I clung to a thread of hope that on the other side I would have a wee bit more energy, a touch more health, a dash more confidence, enough weight loss to fit into my pre-pregnancy wardrobe, and, if I was exceptionally lucky, I’d… Read More ›

Episode 36: The Best of The UnDad Podcast

Sorta. I lost some episodes. I collected as most as I could. This is a month in the making. We are all sick. I’ve notified the authorities. Much love to all and more EPs coming regularly. This episode is powered by ATB and sponsored by the Alberta Podcast Network.  Thank you to Andrew Paul and the Edmonton Community Foundation for… Read More ›

Lady Wizard

Love is everything and nothing at all. It is effortless and extremely difficult. It is magic and science. It just is. Also, it isn’t. Elizabeth Wilkie is a soldier in trenches of the war of love. Also: Life. She battles everyday. Against her body. Against time. Against it all. Then, she sleeps. Seriously, this chick… Read More ›

Episode 35: Santa is the best

In this edition, I read a short Christmas story I wrote last year for Apocalypse Kow‘s awesome annual Christmas show. Also, I recorded a performance of myself during Booty Goose’s ‘Weird Al Karaoke’, where one takes a popular song and changes the lyrics. I wrote a filthy version of ‘Its Beginning to Look a Lot… Read More ›

Episode 34: Don’t mess with Noreen

In this episode I talk with Nicola Doherty (of the Alberta Mamas) about the East Coast, spoon collections, child-sized weaponry, and tattooing dolphins. I’m not kidding.

Thanks to Caitlynn Legris… Read More ›

Episode 32: The Questioneer

In this episode, Trent answers the many, many questions that his rabid fanbase* sent in to him. Some of them are funny, some sincere, and some are about corn nuts. *Just random folks (and his family) who were polite enough to answer his requests for questions. This episode is powered by ATB and sponsored by the Alberta Podcast… Read More ›

Episode 31: No biting

This bad boy goes off the rails in all the best ways possible. I chat with the hilariously enabling Christine Bruckmann (from Just another Edmonton mommy and  Alberta Mammas) about the new Alberta Museum, legalized marijuana, how much I hate lentils, being a crazy parent, and dealing with hate when blogging. This episode is powered… Read More ›

Episode 30: Julie Rohr Part 2

  In no specific order: Julie and I talk about the ‘D’ word, journalism, connecting to people you can’t connect to, understanding, being brought up religious, giving yourself grace, and even though you have cancer you still have to be a parent. This conclusion of the two-parter is a doozie. If you haven’t listened to… Read More ›

Massago is the message

I would like to preface this story with an explanation: I get pitched every few months with a few ideas for products or services that people or companies would like me to review. I don’t take them all. Some I have taken and have returned. Some, I just don’t want to talk about. This is… Read More ›
