Molly/Molly

You've Googled yourself (admit it). Maybe you even have an online doppelgänger, someone whose internet presence is inextricably, confusingly, or amusingly intertwined with yours. Chances are you didn't call them up for a chat... which is exactly what I did for The Sunday Edition, a CBC Network Radio program


The Ordination of Helen

Rev. Helen McFadyen was recently ordained as a Universalist Unitarian Minister -- the first in Halifax in more than 175 years. Her spiritual journey was far from ordinary. This story aired on CBC Radio's Atlantic Voice, a regional documentary program, in March 2015.

Acadian Child - "Claude" 

An Acadian child, dead for about two centuries, is brought back to life through a forensic facial reconstruction. This story aired on CBC Radio's The World at Six in November, 2014. You can read the full story here.


An Unlikely Friendship

Jim was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and declared no longer fit for duty with the Canadian Armed Forces. Christian's exit from the military became public after an incident one night on a base, where Jim was working as military police. The two would unexpectedly connect years later and form an unlikely friendship. This story first aired on CBC Radio's The Current on April 1, 2014.


So-Called Scotch Shortage

The so-called single malt Scotch "shortage" has some whisky aficionados in a tizzy, buying for higher prices or finding substitutes to drink. But is the supply issue more buzz than fact? I explore the issue in this story for CBC Radio (aired at various stations across Canada).


Snow Helpers

In February 2015, Halifax was hit with a series of snow storms. The city couldn't keep up with clearing the streets and sidewalks. I spoke to a father and son who were taking charge to lend a hand. This story aired on CBC Radio, Nova Scotia.
