E0023 – Fight Hate with Love

In our first episode of 2018, Liam is joined by multi-discipline artists and entertainers, Prophesied and J-Ross of the Hip Hop duo Tha Fax. They share stories of their run-ins with the ugly faces of racism across Canada, and prove that the only true way to fight hate is with love.

This is not the easiest topic to discuss, and there is some strong language throughout. It should go without saying, CONTENT WARNING.

Look for the new album from Tha Fax, Twisted Mirrors, coming out February 2018.

E0022 – Leftovers

On this episode of the A Story Not Forgotten podcast Liam speaks with Lourdes Juan, founder of a not-for-profit called the Leftovers Foundation. Every year in Canada, we throw away over $31 Billion worth of perfectly good food. This has been a huge problem for many years, but this Calgarian entrepreneur is stepping up with a solution. Working with organizations like Cobs Bread and Starbucks, along with more than 200 volunteers in Calgary & Edmonton, they redirect more than 4,000 pounds of food each week to organizations that help to get that food where it is needed most.
