Ottawhat 17 – Kim Scott (Ottawa Renewable Energy Coop)

This week on Ottawhat?, we sat down with Kim Scott, who is a board member of the Ottawa Renewable Energy Cooperative (OREC). We had a very informative chat about the societal and financial benefits of solar energy, ways you can reduce your carbon footprint, and the all the best spots to get out and enjoy nature around our great city.

OREC are preparing for their third share offering, if you’re interested in finding out more about the co-op, be sure to visit their website to learn how to get involved.

Ottawhat 16 – Liz Messner

This week on Ottawhat? we sat down with Elisabeth Messner, a young professional fresh out of law school and the bar exam. Together, we cleared up some misconceptions about studying to become a lawyer, figured out what parts of lawyering on TV are actually real, and learned that Liz is on a first name basis with Judge Judy!Liz also drops a major piece of news on all of us, an exclusive “bombshell” so to speak, so tune in for that!

Ottawhat 15 – Damien Broomes

After weeks of anticipation, our very good friend Damien stopped by. Damien is a gifted musician/singer who works at a non-profit organization called Micronutrient Initiative. We talked about how he juggles his commitments between work, playing in a band, watching TV, being a youth leader for Eastern Canada, and spending time with his sweet girlfriend Becca Hrab.

Listen to this week’s episode to find out why he waited so long to come on the podcast.
