Drekken Pownz | SEE Each Other. | Chatting with Casey S01E07

“Be kind to yourself,
Be true to yourself,
And always move forward.”

— Drekken Pownz, Chatting with Casey, Episode Seven: “SEE Each Other.”

When my friend Marie Nicola heard I was doing my podcast, she congratulated me on putting something together with such high production value but thought me nuts to do it without the help of a producer.

And she was right. She’d know—having run The Nat & Marie Show with Nat Atubanos for years—that podcasting’s quite the fickle friend.

You need to be in the groove—people can spot uninspired drivel a mile away, and if your heart’s not in it, it’s probably not worth posting. You need the time and space to record because no one wants to listen to a podcast with an unnecessary background soundtrack. The mechanics of podcasting aren’t hard in themselves—anyone can hit record on a mic and post the audio online—but to make a podcast worth listening to is another matter entirely.

Global TV The Morning Show

Last Updated: November 10, 2020


Being a modern blogger and doing it right means keeping on top of every channel you want to stay active on—even ones predating social media, like the blog.

This summer’s seen a lot go down in the #BloggerLife, including interactions with traditional media that have me stoked to keep growing the brand. Still, it occurred to me that I was missing out on a key opportunity to interact with those of you who only follow the blog and not my various exploits on social media by not sharing them here!

So for any of you who missed it, I spent a few minutes on Global TV’s The Morning Show a little while back to briefly discuss some recent news in the world of parenting! Joined by former co-host Liza Fromer, news anchor Carolyn MacKenzie, and fellow parent blogger Ana-Maria Klizs of Bluebird Kisses, it made for a good start to a Wednesday!

COMIN’ RIGHT UP: The We & We Free featuring Junia-T!

In a time before blogging was my extracurricular activity of choice, I used to draw like a fiend. On break at work. Zipping around on buses between home, school and work. I’d fall asleep with pens and markers in hand as I tried to draw just a little more (my Mom has the ink-stained sheets to prove it!)

It was in one of these scribbling sessions where I first crossed paths with Junia-T.

The We & We Free — Junia-T — Street Shot

Hailing from Sauga’s southwest, Junia’s been in the rap game since before most people knew what Internet radio was. Back in 2003, after we met and exchanged info while riding the city’s notoriously unreliable Mississauga Transit #26, you’d find me with Junia and his 3-5 Playa crew in their basement sessions while sketching out the cover work for Up to Par… Da Mixtape.

Over a decade later, and the Sauga City cat’s still at it, as one of the artists performing at the free upcoming The We & We Free concert on Friday, May 9th at the Izakaya Sushi House!
