The Village

Francis Plourde | The Village Season 3: The Montreal Murders

In the early 1990s, as AIDS tightens its grip on major cities around the world, the relative safety of Montreal’s nightlife becomes a magnet for gay men. But when they start turning up dead in hotel rooms, beaten lifeless in city parks, and violently murdered in their own homes, the queer community has more to fear than the disease. While the city’s police force dithers over the presence of a serial killer, a group of queer activists starts making connections, and rises up to start a movement that would end up changing thousands of lives. Hosted by Francis Plourde.

Almost 12 years ago Adil co-founded a start up called My City Lives. On their first anniversary I asked Adil 5 Questions:

  • What motivates you to do what you do on a daily basis?
  • If you had 30 seconds to impart your wisdom on a classroom of soon-to-be graduates, what would you say?
  • In your opinion, what has been one of the most important technological developments over the past 12 months?
  • If you had a crystal ball, what would you say will be the most important technological development over the next 12 months?
  • Who is one of Canada’s tech stars and why?
  • In this episode we finish off with a new 5 Questions. Listen to the end to hear the questions and Adil’s answers.

My Favourite Song Part One

Both Gregg Tilston and I love music. And there is no better season to enjoy music than in the summer: At an outdoor summer festival, concert, out on the patio or even while just sitting outside in your local park.

So while we all enjoy the summer we thought we’d ask some of our guests what their favourite songs are.

This week’s guests include:

Ajay Massey, lead singer of UN Jefferson

Chris Overholt, CEO of OverActive Media

Michael Thompson, Toronto city councillor

Top Ten Welcome! Episodes of 2017

I’m currently reading Jason Zinoman’s Letterman: The Last Giant of Late Night. So, in the spirit of Letterman’s Top Ten List here are my top episodes of 2017 (based on listens):

1.) When he made his appearance on Welcome!, Jagmeet Singh was still an NDP MPP in Ontario and had not yet decided on running for the leadership of the NDP federal party. Soon after his appearance, well, as they say, the rest is history.

2.) In early 2017, I had Mathew Ingram on. Part of our conversation centered around Donald Trump’s impact on the current media landscape which continues to change.

3.) More than a year ago (in 2016) Morgan P. Campbell made his first of two appearances. We discussed racism in sports (specifically baseball), football and the issue of concussions, and even steroids in professional and amateur sports.

4.) Sulemaan Ahmed is one of the parents behind the #NoFLyListKids initiative that (crazy as it sounds) still continues today.

5.) Twitter remains my personal favourite social media platform. And it was a pleasure to have Cameron Gordon, Twitter Canada’s Head of Communication on.

6.) One of the first female veejay’s on Much Music was Erica Ehm. She’s also a successful entrepreneur.

7.) Salim Naran and I used to run together while in primary school. I’m so proud to see all the success he has had over the years.

8.) In this episode with Jay Soul (aka CHIPPEWAR) we talk about cultural appropriation, truth and reconciliation, missing and murdered Indigenous women and children, how residential schools is still happening today, the problem with Canada 150 and so much more!

9.) Mark Evans is a consultant helping fast growing companies grow faster. In this episode we talked about startups, technology, journalism and urban planning.

10.) Brett Wilson is a former Dragon on CBC’s popular Dragon’s Den, head of Prairie Merchant Corporation and part owner of the NHL’s Nashville Predators.
