It’s time to dig through some Gold Medal Content right here on Silent Cacophony. Literally!

I posted quite a few articles, interviews, and podcasts last July. But the highlight was definitely meeting and interviewing a number of Gold-Medal-Winning Olympic athletes.

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir Article – This is the first article I’ve had in print since the old days when I wrote for the university paper. I was so excited to be able to interview World Figure Skating Champions and Olympic Gold Medal winners Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. I just had to share this with all of you. You can listen to the interview or download it for free as well.

Inspiring a Dream – London, Ontario celebrated all of their Olympic Athletes at this special event last summer. I got a chance to interview swimmers, Joe Barker, Joe Bartoch, and Darda Sales. I also talked to ski-cross athlete, David Duncan, and Gold Medal winner for speed skating, Christine Nesbitt. Check out the complete coverage here with free audio downloads as well.

A Beautiful Symbol – I never really though much about the symbolism of wedding rings before I read this comic book page. Here’s just more proof that you can learn a lot from fiction.

The Auto Shop Waiting Room – I was really bored waiting for my car to get fixed. I sat in the waiting room and decided to get creative and write this poem.

Eternia Interview – It was such an honour to interview Eternia. She is one of the best female rappers in the game. I loved her music before, but after meeting her, I love her even more. You will too after listening to this interview or reading the transcript.

Warrior in a Wheelchair – Here’s an article I wrote after meeting David Willsie, co-captain of The Canadian National Wheelchair Rugby team. He’s been to three paralympic games and was featured in the Oscar-nominated documentary Murderball He has a long list of athletic accomplishments and was very inspiring to talk to.

D-sisive Interview – I interviewed this Canadian rapper way back in 2001 for the university newspaper. I got a chance to interview him again for my radio show. Check out both interviews here as free downloads, podcasts, and articles.

Visual Running Tours – I love running. One day, I decided to take a camera along with me and snap a photo every few minutes. This started a little feature called Visual Running Tours. I have now documented twenty different running trails and continue to update this archive every time I find a new one.
