Customer Communications via Podcast

A securities firm in Toronto's financial district uses TMDS to handle the A-Z of their client-only podcast. Their clients love the valuable information they learn from these episodes, and the firm only needs to provide the content. I handle the rest.

That means once a month I tear down my recording studio, take it on the road and set it up in their boardroom for a morning of recording. We record three episodes and then I head home to edit the files. The feedback from their investment clients has been extremely positive. It's a value-add asset exclusively for their clientele on a variety of topics from cannabis to cryptocurrency.

If you're responsible for client communication, we should talk. This proven model disseminates key information with minimal disruption to your day-to-day business. If you know what data you wish to share, I handle the rest. It's time you had a podcast for customers.

When the City Sets You Up to Crash #biketo

I attended the Million Pound Game this afternoon at Lamport Stadium, and after a disappointing Wolfpack loss, rode my bike west to enjoy dinner with the fam. On the Waterfront Trail, just west of Norris Crescent, I was set up to fail by the city itself.

I was cruising around 22 km/h in the new separated bike lane between Norris Crescent and First Street when I suddenly crashed to the ground. In my life, which includes approximately 50,000 km of city cycling, I have only ever crashed due to rain, snow, ice, or most recently, a bike-on-bike collision by the Palais Royale. This time, I hit the ground hard, and had no idea what caused the crash.

Luckily, unlike my last crash, no bones were broken. I scraped my leg and tore up my hand, but otherwise survived unscathed. An Uber driver and his customer witnessed my crash, and once they discovered I was okay, were quick to point out I had hit this stump where a sign was once posted. I took a couple of pictures of this stump I hit. I didn't see it, but it sure took me out.

I was so angry, because it's one thing to crash due to mother nature, and another thing to crash because a cyclist veers into you, but this is completely unacceptable. The city cut down a sign and left a six inch stump without so much as a pylon in place to alert cyclists like myself. Its pure luck that I didn't break anything and my bike is relatively okay. I put my chain back on and slowly pedaled home.

I'm contacting 311 and asking them to either remove this stump or put a marker on top so cyclists can see it and avoid it. It's tough enough to cycle in this city, we certainly don't need to be set up for failure.

Puck Drops Tonight

Tonight, I'm watching the Leafs game. The regular season has finally arrived and I'm pumped.

No Nylander yet, but otherwise it's looking sweet. The Leafs landed their biggest free agent fish ever and on paper, we're finally a top tier team. Yes, the D line is a little thin, but the depth up front has this lifelong Leafs fan optimistic.

Optimistic, but realistic. We (fuck the first person to call me out for writing "we") haven't won a playoff series since 2004 when Ed Belfour was between the pipes, so I'm not in the "Cup or bust" camp, but we definitely have a shot. Personally, I'd be delighted to play in the Conference finals this season. This window has just opened!

I have a sixteen year old son who follows this team closer than I ever could, and I'm just looking forward to a promising season with him at my side. He was two the last time we escaped the first round and he's all in. I hope we win it for him.

Now let's drop the puck already. Leafs and Habs is on Sportsnet tonight at 7pm.
