In today’s episode, we learn about getting creative projects done with soon to be Canadian MEGA star, Daniel Beirne. Also, Kevin eats perogies and talks about not dating in small towns. Plus Catherine refrains from spilling the beans.

Daniel Beirne is one of the creators of Space Riders: Division Earth – a web series through CTV that won a Canadian Screen Award in 2015. He’s also won a Canadian Comedy Award for Multimedia / Best Writing in a TV or Web Series for another gem, Dad Drives. Dan has many creative projects to his name (as you’ll see int the show notes and his imbd page), and has a knack for getting things done (and done well). In today’s interview, Catherine picks his brain about being creative and productive, and why it’s important to treat each project like it’s your career – because it is! Whether you’re making moola or not from the gig.

Writer, producer, director and actor – Daniel Beirne is an up and coming Canadian talent to notice.
