Show Notes

Welcome to the special BONUS EPISODE of The Canadian Star System, where our featured guest is none other than author, podcaster, keynote speaker, advertising guru, and *technically,* Steve and Diana’s podcast boss – Terry O’Reilly.

If you’re a fan of Terry’s insanely popular CBC Radio show and podcast, UNDER THE INFLUENCE, then you’re going to love this bonus episode

Diana and Steve dive into Terry’s newest book, MY BEST MISTAKE, and talk about how finding the ‘hidden gift’ in a terrible situation can be the first step towards pulling yourself up out of the mud you may feel stuck in.

In these weirdo times where everything seems bleak and so many people feel broken and defeated, we hope this conversation about how mistakes can be gifts is the early Christmas present you didn’t know you needed! Terry also shines the spotlight on HIS favourite podcasts that you’re definitely going to want to subscribe to (along with all the excellent Apostrophe podcasts)!
