Year in Review


On this episode we review 2017, a year punctuated with the bad, the ugly & the awkward. From Trump and #MeToo to the Phoenix pay system catastrophe and no more Sears holiday catalogues, we talk about key moments in politics and science, showing how 2017 was another year with far reaching impacts for all of us. 2017 was also Canada’s 150th birthday. As Canadians, we think back on what that meant to us and provide some advice for those of you looking to build a $4.3M outdoor hockey rink. 2017 also brought two births: Matt’s baby girl, Violet and, this podcast! In what will become a yearly tradition, we close the episode by talking about all our 2017 podcast appearances, the interviews we did throughout the year, and the great folks we had the chance to meet. Here’s to a wonderful 2018. Happy New Year everyone. Be kind.

Phil highly recommended checking out APTN’s Mohawk Girls, find that show here:
We thank Slammerkin for kindly allowing us to play three of their songs: I am so Evil, Xanadu & Two Worlds. From Toronto, ON, Canada, the sister act of Slammerkin combines electronic lo-fi synth waves, dreamy soundscapes, catchy bass riffs, and melodic vocals to paint sonic images that lead us on epic journeys. If you have an imagination and a pair of ears, you won’t be disappointed by Slammerkin’s debut album ‘All The Lasers Are Mine’. Make sure to check out and support Liza & Sam’s music. Slammerkin can be found on: Soundcloud | Twitter | Facebook | Website | Spotify


Concluding thought:  Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
