Toronto Podcast Producers
We work with Toronto podcast hosts who want to create podcasts with a strong focus on rich storytelling, whether it's in the form of a food show, an audio play, a fear-based exploration, or a sports show.
Comedian Jordan Foisy lives in a scary place. We all do. It’s called The World. From rising sea levels to war to worrying about being a bad friend, there are simply too many fears to fit in the day. We need a better way to fear. Join Jordan as he interviews experts about all the things that freak him out in his search to truthfully answer: Should I Be Scared Of This?
Is Jordan capable of being a good father? In this episode, Jordan asks a family therapist, dad-blogger and best friend about what it means to support a child in your life.
With the help of University of Alberta psychology professor Dr. Kyle Mathewson, Jordan finds out if his phone is really making him less focused, attentive and overall, a more stupid, shallow person.
With all sorts of free trade agreements spiralling around Jordan's nightmares and knocking on his door at Halloween, he asks what exactly he should be scared of (if anything). In this episode Jordan speaks with economics and political history Professor Dimitri Anastakis.
Comedian Jordan Foisy deals with his fear of commitment by first interviewing family court judge, Judge Harvey Brownstone, and then his long term girlfriend, fellow comedian Amanda Brooke-Perrin.
Jordan interviews water scientist Mike Christie to determine if Drought is the right fear for him. Mike informs him about how plumbing works, what’s California’s problem and why Jordan should be worried even in water rich Ontario.
Jordan discovers that having a fear of hospitals might make sense.
Jordan interviews journalist Bruce Livesey (Thieves of Bay Street, CBC’s The National, National Observer, @livesey416) about the 1%, fat cats, the Rich. Should he worry about their influence in his life or is it just a bunch hippy dippy nonsense? What he learns hits closer to home than he thought possible.
