Episode 20 of Newfoundpod covers the Royal St. John’s Regatta. I talked history, my personal stories, some other stories and the plans for the current year’s races.
Look who is finally back with a new episode! It’s ME!
Today’s episode deals with the future of the podcast. I also talk about Anthony Bourdain, Cortney Lake and read an entry from someone who loved their trip to Newfoundland.
Hi everyone! As I promised on the Facebook page, here’s my recap and thoughts on yesterday’s episode of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown – Newfoundland.
Chef Jeremy Charles, who I may have fallen in love with over the course of this episode.

There are so many natural instruments that contribute to the soundscape of Newfoundland and Labrador: from the clamouring waves, to the whistling winds, to the friendly lilt of a voice being carried gently across a bay.

This weekend is St. Patrick’s Day, and that got me thinking about how closely related Newfoundland and Ireland are. Our flags, our music, our accents, our looks, our beliefs, even the look of the land are so similar, that Irish author Tim Pat Coogan has said “Newfoundland is the most Irish place in the world outside of Ireland. Today I’m going to talk about those similarities and the effect of our Irish ancestors on our province.
Here are the photos and videos I mentioned on the episode: (more…)

Newfoundland holds a few Guinness World Records: the first trans-Atlantic flight, the first European settlers in North America, the earliest record of animal tracks (from 565 million years ago) and the world’s largest squid. This episode is about those devil fish, those Kraken, those giant squid. Squids?
