new news!

I am going to be on the radio!! I will be featured on the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) program North by Northwest with Sheryl MacKay.

Sheryl heard me speak on CBC’s Early Edition for the Angel Campaign in December, got in touch with me and asked me to be on her show. Of course I said yes! I’d be honored and I was. I geeked out just a little sitting in CBC’s waiting room and then in the booth with my headphones. I should have pulled out my phone to sneak a photo. Like most Canadians I didn’t want to impose, so I politely left my phone in my purse.

We were there to talk about my story. Sheryl had asked for the manuscript which I sent and then I harassed her with emails like, did you get it? It didn’t get lost out there somewhere, right? I had this vision of the file never reaching her and landing in some crazy person’s inbox who…I don’t know what they would do with it because, of course, this is illogical and would never happen. But, I’m slightly neurotic. And it’s my memoir, my almost-book.

We talked story for 40 minutes which will be edited to somewhere between 15 – 17 minutes. Sheryl is lovely, laid-back and easy to talk to – too easy. I could have freely over-shared, which wouldn’t have been good for anyone.  Like I could have told her about the time Scott’s co-workers overheard a very private conversation between me and Scott when Scott, unknowingly, hadn’t turned off his ‘on’ button while they were video-conferencing. My face still burns with humiliation. She made it that comfortable.

North by Northwest is a program that’s on every weekend featuring artists, musicians, writers and chefs sharing their passions and inspirations. And I had the incredible honor to be interviewed. The show will air this Sunday, January the 22nd, after the 8:30 am news. Here in Vancouver you can listen to it on 690 AM or 88.1 FM. You’ll be able to listen to it at their website and I’ll follow up with that information when I know more. You can follow me on Twitter (@heidicave) by just clicking at the top right corner of my blog where I will be sure to tweet more details. Or Facebook. I’ll post there too.

Here we are…the whole family this time.

    Thank you, all!! You’re so good to me. I always tell Scott how I have the nicest, kindest people that ‘read’ me. Thanks for being such great friends.

    Hey, congrats on the cool media appearance! No doubt you did great.

    And I’m happy to hear that I’m not the only person who’s shy about pulling out the camera in situations like that. I always chide myself later for not taking photos of “insider” stuff, but I worry about being pushy or, you know, tacky. Hey – maybe I’m Canadian and I didn’t know it! 😉

    I really enjoyed reading about your amazing life journey and I look forward to reading your book when it comes out!

    Take care…

    🙂 Anna

      Anna, I’m sure I could have taken a photo. The host was super nice, but it’s this ‘don’t push your luck’ deep-down thing inside me that prevents me.
      Thanks for coming by and thank you for the kind words.

    I listened to you this morning on CBC and was inspired to come and read more about your journey. We all have these lives we try to make sense of. Reading your Blog is an inspiration to me in mine.

    Beyond beyond, and a story that needs to be told.

    Truly, every one needs to hear about surviving, coming through to the other side.

    Also, I already loved you, for the truth in your words, but now this:

    My MO, woman. Good luck getting rid of me now.
