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!!

TMT012: Eddy Robinson, Part 2
2 days ago
If you listened to last week’s episode, you know that I had indigenous artist, activist, and educator, Eddy Robinson on the show. This is part 2 of that episode. Today, as a continuation of our discussion, Eddy and I are going to talk about leadership, some of Toronto’s odd choices for public indigenous statues, Truth and Reconciliation, and what the future holds for the exceptional work that he does. We’re also going to discuss his thoughts on multiculturalism and the impact it has on the indigenous community. If you are a music fan, I think you’re going to love this episode. Eddy deconstructs and demystifies indigenous music for me, and if you’ve always wondered what Pow Wow music is all about, today you’re going to find out. 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 on iTunes or at www.chrislesso.com. Previous episodes can be found on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play Music, or else at our website, thisismytoronto.com. Thanks for listening, and remember: Don't let it get stuffy in here Toronto. Let's keep the roof open!!
