I co-host Stop Podcasting Yourself.
I'm on Twitter.
I suppose I run kidcasting.
I'm an occasional host on CBC Radio 3.
I write.
I'm on instagram.
This is my dog.
Ask me a question.
But enough about me.

Halfway through, it just becomes Mary Poppins starring Jewel, and nobody notices.
Carrie Underwood takes a Louisville Slugger to both headlights of Hitler’s pickup truck.
The hills are alive, but you know, like, they have eyes.
A panicked look on Underwood’s face as she forgets “My Favorite Things” and has to make up the lyrics: “Raindrops on racists and nipples on chickens.”
Accidental swears.
I hope they keep the scene where the kids are lined up by height. Oh wait, that’s every scene.
Funkier new disco arrangements by Nile Rodgers and Hammerstein.
All the kids’ voices deepen four octaves between rehearsal and performance.
All the success of NBC’s last musical theatre endeavour, Smash.
A convoluted backstory to explain Underwood’s southern accent.
Sets that look an awful lot like the Cliffhangers set from The Price is Right.
Changing a few lyrics for sponsors: “How do you solve a problem like eczema? Cortizone!”
An acknowledgment of what the lonely goatherd does when he gets really lonely.
By popular demand, the Ricola jingle.
“La” breaks up with “Do Re Mi,” stating, “Is that all I am to you, a note to follow so?”
