Wouldn’t it be cool to grow up on a tropical island? Mark tells us what its like to be raised a Bermudian and then to eventually move to the winter-wonderland that is Canada. We also delve into Mark’s thoughts on interracial marriage, his early succession of jobs, one as a P.I., and how he is slowly taking over the family business while still being active in the community and his photography.
Sean discusses at length, and with courage, his life-long battle with anxiety and depression and how alcohol became his medication to keep these issues at bay. Find out the stresses that led him in this direction in the first place, and how he rose from the ashes. A triumphant tale.
This is the first in what we hope to be a series of couple stories.
We start with Dawne in this episode, and move onto her husband Sean, in next week’s. It’s a good look at two lives that run parallel over the course of 20+ years and the different perspectives and approaches they take. Kind of a modern day love story.
Dawne’s own story explores being raised by divorced parents, her active lifestyle, the hurdles they had to over-come being a young parents, and starting and running her own successful business. Lots on the table in this one.
Mike talks to us about jamming all he can into one lifetime! We chat about playing hockey as a kid with pre-NHL players, touring Canada and the USA as the drummer for the Ian Thomas Band, (Wrote the hit “Painted Ladies” among others) being a tennis-pro, and ultimately becoming a member of The Lulu’s Roadhouse Band for 16 years and counting. We find out what went on behind the scenes at LuLu’s (the longest bar in the world) and what it was like to play nightly to thousands of people, as well as how being in a band can be difficult on any relationship. How about living on a houseboat along the shores of Lake Huron and the Florida Coast?! (…until that boat sank!) And finally, talking-nostalgic about those lost days of innocence, a “graceful age”. A life well lived!
In this episode we learn what it’s like to be raised by a single, financially strapped, mother of two young shit-disturbers, and the eventual hardships of blending two families. (This ain’t no Brady Bunch folks) Chris also discusses traveling like a gypsy, learning to play harp (harmonica) in bands, how to make things REALLY work with your ex when a child is involved, and making choices based on the search for a simpler, happier life. Oh yeah, and we chat about Meatfest! What’s that u ask? Come and find out!
We rap up 2014 with a selection of clips from all the interviews to date, as well as a teaser for the up-coming year. Happy New Year Folks! We’re just getting started! See you in 2015!
Season’s Greeting from the Movin’ Air crew! Come and hang out on our very first Christmas special. We have drinks, cook some food, tell some tales and even have a conversation with Santa! Yes Santa! Don’t miss it!
Part II of Roger’s story delves into his struggle with panic attacks and anxiety and the intricacy of coming out as a gay man at the age of 27. We also learn of his mother’s death and where the road takes him now.
We couldn’t find a way to tell Roger’s story in just one episode, so we turned it into a two-parter. You people are in for a treat.
In this episode we rehash Roger’s year-long stay in a hospital as a child. We also talk about his love of music, being in bands, and eventually touring as the soundman with Our Lady Peace, The Wailers (Monitor Tech) and ultimately The Blue Man Group. And don’t forget about the drug years, can’t forget about them.
A great talk about the different relationships in Heather’s life; mother-daughter, husband-wife, daughter-mother, and how she has, and continues, to navigate them all. We also learn of the changes in her life once her daughter was born, and growing up in a small town in southern Ontario, Canada.
