In episode 15 of Life Through a Dram, I chat with Bob LeDrew on the joy and intimacy of house concerts (and how they can ruin arena shows), the secret history of the ukulele, why the loss of politician Paul Dewar hit so hard, and more.
Topics on the menu include:
- The story behind house concerts and why they’re growing in popularity
- His love of the ukulele and why it’s such a multi-faceted instrument
- The loss of Ottawa politician Paul Dewar and why he was so loved and respected
- Paul Dewar’s mantra that we can all live by
- Bob’s podcast Turnstile Moment, and how the loss of his brother, and Bob being diagnosed with cancer, led to it
- Why we need more honesty in discussions between people, and stripping away the protective barriers that deny real connections
Settle back for an equally entertaining and educational conversation as Bob shares his stories, and how his take on life is something we can all look to as inspiration for how we live our own.
