8.18 A Parking Spot of Bother
8.17 Where Things Live
Last month, I drove out to London. Let’s not get into the reasons for this right now, you’ll be able to read about it in my next book, which is hopefully coming soon. But this wasn’t about London, this was about when I arrived home.
I should point out this is London, Ontario. Perhaps an obvious point, but if there’s anything I’ve learned, it’s to be clear and concise.
8.16 Killing Me Slowly
Maybe you might have heard, or perhaps not. Either way, doesn’t matter. To get you caught up, my podcast partner in crime Pj Kwong and I are thrilled to announce our latest venture. The Content Store is a custom, cool and creative agency that puts the client first. We’re focused on content, strategy and storytelling.
I wanted to take this opportunity to put in one place all of the things that I’m up to. I do a lot of things and felt it necessary to make it clear where everything lives on the internet.
I equally dislike bikers, pedestrians and drivers. Let me explain and agree with me or not, I don’t really care. Primarily, I get around the city by bike, my feet or car. I’ve seen bikers blast through stop signs without even looking. Pedestrians with strollers jaywalk across streetcar track laden roads in front of buses. Cars? Too many things to include just one dumb example. So, when I’m biking, I hate pedestrians and drivers. When walking, I can’t stand bikers and drivers. When driving, I lose my mind with pedestrians and bikers.
I started telling stories in front of audiences a few years ago. The first one was for a talent show at the Centre for Social Innovation. I was a wreck, but I think it went okay. People laughed where they were supposed to laugh, silent where they were supposed to be silent.
A lot has changed since then. I was privileged to find some other like-minded people and together we started Stories We Don’t Tell, a show with deeply personal stories that take place in different apartments and houses in Toronto. That was three years ago and at the time, I dived right into the vibrant storytelling scene in the city.
Dived in a bit too soon.
