This is my Toronto
About This Show
Welcome to This is my Toronto, the podcast where your host, Jeff McCartney showcases our great city by focusing on the incredible and talented work of local entrepreneurs, entertainers and historians.
Once a week, Jeff will interview a member of our city who is contributing to "bringing it to life". The show will run approximately 40-50 minutes, or about the length of your commute time or perhaps the time you take working out or getting your “steps” in.
The show's mantra is simple: Don't let it get stuffy in here Toronto. Let's keep the roof open!!

TMT007: Don McKellar
2 days ago
Today we're "jumping the shark" by having Canadian film icon, Don McKellar on the show. His work includes such masterpieces as Roadkill, Highway 61, Twitch City, The Drowsy Chaperone, Blindness, The Grand Seduction, Sensitive Skin, and my personal favourite, The Red Violin. Today, we're going to talk to Don about where it all began, the importance of family, his many collaborators, and why he stayed in Toronto, where many would have gone to Hollywood or New York. The music for the podcast has been graciously provided by Toronto's own Modus Factor. The music is from their new album The Picasso Zone, which can be purchased at www.chrislesso.com. Previous episodes can be found on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play Music, or else at our website, http://thisismytoronto.com. Thanks for listening, and remember: Don't let it get stuffy in here Toronto. Let's keep the roof open!!
