Ottawhat 22 – Nicholas Maddox

Nick Maddox was our guest this week. We spent a lot of time talking about all the things Nick has enjoyed about Ottawa in his time here, including the 417, Elgin Street and whether Ottawa’s population is officially a million people. Nick also brews his own beer, which we tried and discussed on the show. It was delicious!

Ottawhat 21 – Eric Turmelle

This week on Ottawhat?, we sat down with Eric Turmelle, a chemical engineering graduate who’s lived all over Ottawa. We discussed the differences between Barrhaven, Kanata and Nepean, put in our two cents on Uber coming to Ottawa, and talked about The Room, considered by many to be one of the worst movies ever made (you can go see it at the Mayfair every month!).

Learn about what goes into being an engineer in Ontario, as well as about Eric’s new business where he can tell if someone will be a good roommate just by looking at them!

Go leave us a review on iTunes, it will REALLY help more cool people just like you discover the show! We put out new episodes every Thursday.

Ottawhat 20 – Rebecca Laviolette

This week on Ottawhat?, we had a blast hanging out with Rebecca Laviolette, a Rockland native who spends her non-working hours as an avid supporter of the local performing arts scene. She’s also a performer who will be in the Spring 2015 production of The Hairy Ape by Eugene O’Neill.

We chatted with Rebecca about theatre festivals in Ottawa, opportunities for youth to get involved in performing arts, the benefits of moving downtown, and where to learn how to Salsa Dance. As a bonus, listen in as we try to get her started on how she felt about the reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (hint: she wasn’t impressed).
