Captivating. Keen. Killin’ it with the analogies. We zoom-sat-chat with Jessica Schmiedchen to hear how she balances being a mom with her role as a CBC TV exec and all the notes in between (specifically, those given around the dinner table). AND! The coach you never knew you needed until you got a platinum pixie cut! COOL THINGS: Jessica: Yoga With Adriene (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFKE7WVJfvaHW5q283SxchA) Cales: Home-made disinfectant spray [80% rubbing alcohol, freshly squeezed aloe vera, and your fav essential oils for fragrance] Justin: Reach out!

ZOOM DATE with Meagan... ok not a zoom date, we’re still on @happsnews but we talk about zoom dating. And life as a talent agent. And a cat that walked out of a house fire as the sole survivor. Down to earth gab fest full of real talk, peloton and mugs of wine. Shove us in yer earholes, babes. Meow. COOL THINGS Cales: Saje essential oils (they’re delicious).

Is art in the doing or in the result; in the act or the product? This was a night-long conversation Cales had with her grand pal Donis & we decided to continue it on in a WTNOK episode to not only watch Cales’ head almost spin off its axle, but so y’all could be privy to how effing cool of a pirate Mike Donis is — filmmaker, director, editor, actor, and yes, an actual pirate. Shove us in yer ear holes for clarification (& antics).  Donis on  Instagram: @mikedonis  “ on Twitter (which he never uses): also @mikedonis  Check out more from his composer for “Pete Winning” here: http://aarontsang.com/ and on insta: @aarontsang.music      Cool things: Donis: “For my own mental health, I wake up every day at least two hours before I have to leave home. I essentially just sit by myself for the first hour, before starting to get ready to leave during the second hour. No matter how early I have to get up, 95% of the time I do the two-hours thing. It helps me feel settled before gearing up for the day.” Cales: jeans (but also something significantly deeper, mentioned mid-ep, which none of us could remember by the end, so maybe not so deep actually, but rather than re-listening to her own voice again, yay, a fun Easter egg for you!) Justin: Drawing as an act of mediation!  Theme music by Tessa Good & Petr Balaz Send your cool things into: https://anchor.fm/wtnok/message --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/wtnok/message
Dav, like Cales, doesn’t necessarily care for labels, though several deem her a sensational journalist and we feel confident enough saying she is a delightfully passionate conversationalist and bright, shiny soul! This gal can not only talk up a storm but has the gumption and confidence to keep advancing her own conversations on her own platforms, even in the face of adversarial voices. She opens up about personal prompts to want to be vocal, political plies that fuel her fire, and references one of Cales’ favourite poets with a quote we cannot help but share here again: “The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity.”     ⁃    William Butler Yeats COOL THINGS: Dav: self-compassion Cales: “Opening Scenes” Scriptnotes episode (https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/493-opening-scenes/id462495496?i=1000514099795) Justin: Onesies & March of Remembrance and Hope Canada (http://www.marchofremembranceandhope.org/) Theme music by Tessa Good & Petr Balaz Send your cool things into: https://anchor.fm/wtnok/message --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/wtnok/message
