Drew will share his TOP 10 moments of hosting Canada’s most listened to spiritual talk show.


Moment # 3:
“We ran a game show called Soul SURVIVOR (based on the TV show) where various religions ‘competed for the soul’ of one person who hadn’t yet bought into any particular religious belief. The ‘contestant’ decided to show up for one show, wreaking of alcohol. We didn’t really notice how bad things were until he began slurring his words and saying some incredibly bizarre stuff on air. I decided to end the interview and send him on his way. Next thing I know, Tim and one of our interns were calling 911 because the guy had passed out in the hallway. We replaced him the following week with the runner-up contestant. It’s okay though. He SURVIVED!”

Special Guests

  • Neale Donald Walsch — Bestselling Author of CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD, Author of THE ESSENTIAL PATH: Making the Daring Decision to Be Who You Truly Are
    Our modern era is plagued by increasing alienation―we are seeing an “us against them” world. Everywhere we turn, we find ourselves divided from each other as never before across political, economic, social, and spiritual lines. As humanity is being torn apart right before our eyes - separating many of us from our friends and even our loved ones, from our hopes and dreams, from the natural world, and from so much that gives meaning and value to our lives - people are blaming everyone and everything around them for the collective problems that we have created ourselves. We are turning against each other, rather than to each other, just when we need each other the most. Bestselling author of Conversations with God Neale Donald Walsch offers a radical solution to the growing problem of humanity’s alienation. He invites us to question our basic assumptions about ourselves, about each other, about life and how it works, and about God, and to rethink the very definition of humanity. The Essential Path challenges every human to make a Daring Decision―to look at who we are and how we can choose to be, in a planet-altering new way. With insight and spiritual perceptivity, Walsch peers into the heart of a broken, divided society, prompting us to ask the critical questions that have the power to transform our world.

  • Sarah Bowen — Author of SPIRITUAL REBEL: A Positively Addictive Guide To Finding Deeper Perspective & Higher Purpose

Bringing together insights from a wide range of traditions—from Taoism to Jediism to Yoga to Science—Spiritual Rebel is a personal approach to finding a deeper perspective and higher life purpose. Offering three weeks of unconventional practices--including forest bathing, yawning, hiking, cat-gazing, mindfulness, and sacred crashing to name just a few--this book helps not only seekers, but also agnostics, atheists, and the spiritual-but-not-religious, curate meaningful spiritual moments throughout the day, dipping in without having to commit, never having to fear they might be “doing it wrong.” Sarah Bowen is an award-winning author, multifaith spiritual educator, inspired speaker... and aspiring Jedi. Her first book, Void If Detached: Seeking Modern Spirituality Through My Father's Old Sermons, received numerous literary awards including a Nautilus. ​Especially interested in the intersection of spiritual values with animal welfare, Sarah is a fierce advocate for all creatures and currently serves as an animal chaplain.

  • Gayle Scott — Enneagram Guru
    The Enneagram played a huge part in the restoration of Drew & Bev’s marriage. Only after learning about themselves and then each other (from the perspective of The Enneagram) were they able to do two things.
    1/ Practice compassionate, non-judgmental self-awareness.
    2/ Not take unmet needs in their marriage so personally.
    To help explain the Enneagram and clarify the practical benefit within a marriage, is Drew’s friend and world recognized Enneagram guru, Gayle Scott - Director of The Enneagram Mystery School of Colorado and International Enneagram Association Authorized Teacher & Professional.

  • Ashley David Chapman — Vice President of Chapman’s Ice Cream
    Back in 1973, David and Penny Chapman bought a small creamery in Markdale Ontario. The Chapman family began with four employees and two trucks and moved into the cramped and primitive rooms above an old creamery in town. In 2001, Chapman's opened a distribution center in New Brunswick to better serve its customers in Atlantic Canada. Although Chapman's Ice Cream has grown substantially, it is still firmly rooted in the community and deeply loyal to its employees. The distribution centre in Ontario covers about 140,000 square feet and can house over 6 million units of product, which gets delivered right across Canada on over 50 trucks. At 10 am on September 4th, 2009, someone noticed smoke coming out of one of the buildings. By mid-afternoon, the fire was almost under control when the Municipality of Grey Highlands undersized water tower ran dry. At 5 pm the Chapman family withdrew to their family home outside of Markdale, after witnessing 36 years of hard work go up in smoke, but within an hour of getting home, the family made the quick decision to rebuild their business. Worried about the local economy, and their 350 employees who make up the extended Chapman family, the Chapman's refused to go down without a fight! Shortly after this, the entire management team gathered around David and Penny's dining room table and started planning the rebuild. Within 7 weeks from the fire, Chapman’s produced their first 2Litre brick of ice cream! In the ensuing months, the community and Chapman's worked tirelessly to build their new manufacturing facility, appropriately named Phoenix. Within a year and a half from the fire, they had rebuilt bigger and better than ever! Today, Chapman's is Canada's largest independent ice cream company.

Rebuilding Love

  • Rebuilding Love Finale
    They tried 28 years of doing marriage their way, but eventually, it ended. However, after a long separation, Canadian talk show host Drew Marshall and his wife Bev recently renewed their vows on a small deserted island off the coast of Mexico. Now, to make sure he doesn’t screw it up again, Drew has asked renowned psychologist and relationship guru Dr. Sue Johnson to help he and his wife rebuild their love - but this time with new foundational building blocks, using tools they’ve never had before. Dr. Johnson has agreed to personally take Bev and Drew through her Hold Me Tight Program.

    THIS WEEK - The Final Segment:

Moment # 4:
“Tim The Tool and I were walking to our cars in the underground parking lot, when suddenly a man came out of nowhere and angrily confronted me. Apparently, his wife had called into the show and shared that her husband was physically abusive and wanted to know if God would be upset with her if she left him. I encouraged her to LEAVE. She did. He was furious with me. So I let him empty out all his rage on me. (verbally) When it was all said and done, we hugged. Yup - that happened.”

TDMS SPECIAL
A Folk Singer, An Ex-Jihadist, An Imam, A Rabbi &
An Ex-Pastor Walk Into A Radio Show

Todays’ show has a theme. American singer/songwriter David Wilcox has written many soul penetrating songs. One of them is the opening for our 9 week series - REBUILDING LOVE. (“Start with The Ending”) But one of his songs is the premise for today’s theme. “Three Brothers” is the story of three brothers who each feel that they are the brother that deserves to inherit all of their Father’s estate. As the will is read, they discover that each of their wishes came true. Each brother DID inherit all of their father’s estate. Now, although that math doesn’t make sense, the song is an illustration of the world’s largest monotheistic religions - Islam, Judaism & Christianity - that happened to all come from the same piece of land that has been fought over for centuries... Jerusalem. But the most powerful narrative in the song is the impact all of this fighting between the brothers has on their sister - Faith.

Special Guests

  • David Wilcox — Recording Artist
    Cleveland-born David Wilcox is now 20 records into a career marked by personal revelation and wildly loyal fans. His lyrical insight is matched by a smooth baritone voice, virtuosic guitar chops, and creative open tunings, giving him a range and tenderness rare in folk music. Wilcox released an independent album in 1987, was a winner of the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk award in 1988, and by 1989 he had signed with A&M Records. His first release on the label, How Did You Find Me Here, sold over 100,000 copies the first year largely by word of mouth. His latest record The View From the Edge (2018) is a collection of powerful new songs, many of which he has been performing at live shows for the past several years. It’s an album that reflects four years of thinking, writing, crafting, playing and life. In recognition of this new release, David Wilcox was named the Grand Prize Winner of the 2018 USA Songwriting Contest. Considered a 'songwriter's songwriter', his skills as a performer and storyteller are unmatched. He holds audiences rapt with nothing more than a single guitar, thoroughly written songs, a fearless ability to mine the depths of human emotions of joy, sorrow and everything in between, and all tempered by a quick and wry wit. In live performance, David loves making up a spontaneous song for an audience member in need. Anyone who has seen Wilcox perform more than once or twice has seen him concoct one of his “Musical Medicine” songs on the spot, full of lyrical artistry and musical inventiveness, like some kind of uncanny parlor trick. David Wilcox finds inspiration wherever he looks. The songs, in turn, provide inspiration to longtime listeners as well as those finding him for the first time. It’s in the song and the craftsmanship; it’s medicine for the soul; it’s story; it’s a restless spirituality.

    “David Wilcox’s ongoing musical journey is compelling and richly deserving of a listen.” -Rolling Stone

The first single from that album, ‘Come Right Back To You’ debuted on the iTunes Canada Top 200 RnB/Soul song chart at #23, while the album itself debuted at #11 on the Canadian iTunes Top 200 RnB/Soul chart. Stylistically, that album incorporated some fresh new elements, as Avery explains, “Being influenced by such Jazz greats as Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Chet Baker, and Carmen McRae, my second CD tried to highlight my jazz vocal style, while creating a contemporary Soul sound, reminiscent of artists such as Norah Jones, Corrine Bailey Rae and even Amy Winehouse. I think of it as a really nice blend of soul, jazz, and blues”. As a performer, Avery has taken the stage across North America, including at some famed New York City clubs like Birdland Jazz club, Metropolitan Room and Don’t Tell Mama Cabaret, as well as top Canadian venues like Koerner Hall, Roy Thomson Hall, The St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts, The Jazz Bistro, Lula Lounge, Hugh’s Room, and many more. Avery Raquel has also garnered numerous vocal awards over the years, and has excelled on the festival circuit too, delivering winning performances across North America, including with the Berklee Global Jazz Institute on the Newport Jazz Festival stage in Rhode Island USA, as well as at the Toronto Jazz Festival, Burlington Sound of Music Festival, Oakville Jazz Festival, Brantford International Jazz Festival, Riverfest, TD Niagara Jazz Festival, and South Coast Jazz Festival, as well as other prominent music festivals in Ontario including Beatlesfest in London. She has also been fortunate to share the stage and studio with the likes of Juno and Grammy award-winning artist David Clayton Thomas (Blood, Sweat & Tears), Matt Dusk, Holly Cole, June Garber, Molly Johnson, and other prominent International artists. She’s taken masterclasses with legends like Marilyn Maye, Danilo Pérez, and June Garber, as well as having worked closely with other Canadian jazz vocalists.

Moment # 5:
“After a holiday break, Tim The Tool asked me what I did during my time off. I accidentally combined two responses together (‘Not much. I just hung out’ AND ‘Not much. I just laid low.’) I ended up saying, ‘Not much. I just hung low.’ Because Tim and I are actually 13 year old boys, it took us a very long time to stop our uncontrollable giggling!”

Journey

  • JOURNEY Update - Marcella’s Mom!
    Just before a show in March 2015, Drew was told that a former guest / turned friend had just died. MS finally took Marcella Immacolata Trichilo. She was only 38. Since she was first interviewed by Drew in 2006, especially during his years of “public doubt”, Marcella was a pebble under his soul. Over time, her body slowly trapped and betrayed her. Drew was in complete awe of her unwavering dedication to the God who never answered her hope & prayers to be healed. Drew was honoured to have been asked by the family to lead the funeral service for this young, vibrant, stubborn and cheeky Italian woman. Marcella was tenacious grace!

THIS ONE TIME - ON TDMS… “During a commercial break, I went to the men’s room. On the way back, a person walked out of the lunchroom and asked if I was Drew Marshall. I had no clue who they were. They told me they were here for the interview. I had no clue who they were. I expressed how happy I was to have them on the show and invited them into the studio. I had no clue who they were. As soon as we went to air, I asked the person to introduce themself. Then I remembered who they were. (As it turned out, they hadn’t actually confirmed their spot on the show that week, but we made it work.)”

  • Tommy Caldwell — Author of THE PUSH: A Climber’s Search For The Path, Star of Documentary THE DAWN WALL
    THE PUSH is a dramatic, inspiring memoir by legendary rock climber Tommy Caldwell, the first person to free climb the Dawn Wall of Yosemite’s El Capitan. On January 14, 2015, Tommy Caldwell, along with his partner, Kevin Jorgeson, summited what is widely regarded as the hardest climb in history—Yosemite’s nearly vertical 3,000-foot Dawn Wall, after nineteen days on the route. Caldwell’s odds-defying feat was the culmination of an entire lifetime of pushing himself to his limits as an athlete. This engrossing memoir chronicles the journey of a boy with a fanatical mountain-guide father who was determined to instill toughness in his son to a teen whose obsessive nature drove him to the top of the sport-climbing circuit. Caldwell’s affinity for adventure then led him to the vertigo-inducing and little understood world of big wall free climbing. But his evolution as a climber was not without challenges; in his early twenties, he was held hostage by militants in a harrowing ordeal in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan. Soon after, he lost his left index finger in an accident. Later his wife, and main climbing partner left him. Caldwell emerged from these hardships with a renewed sense of purpose and determination. He set his sights on free climbing El Capitan’s biggest, steepest, blankest face—the Dawn Wall. This epic assault took more than seven years, during which time Caldwell redefined the sport, found love again, and became a father. The Push is an arresting story of focus, drive, motivation, endurance, and transformation, a book that will appeal to anyone seeking to overcome fear and doubt, cultivate perseverance, turn failure into growth, and find connection with family and with the natural world.

  • Rachel M. McCleary and Robert J. Barro — Authors of THE WEALTH OF RELIGIONS: The Political Economy of Believing and Belonging
    Which countries grow faster economically—those with strong beliefs in heaven and hell or those with weak beliefs in them? Does religious participation matter? Why do some countries experience secularization while others are religiously vibrant? In The Wealth of Religions, Rachel McCleary and Robert Barro draw on their long record of pioneering research to examine these and many other aspects of the economics of religion. Places with firm beliefs in heaven and hell measured relative to the time spent in religious activities tend to be more productive and experience faster growth. Going further, there are two directions of causation: religiosity influences economic performance and economic development affects religiosity. Dimensions of economic development—such as urbanization, education, health, and fertility—matter too, interacting differently with religiosity. State regulation and subsidization of religion also play a role. The Wealth of Religions addresses the effects of religious beliefs on character traits such as work ethic, thrift, and honesty; the Protestant Reformation and its long-term effects on education and religious competition; Communism’s suppression of and competition with religion; the effects of Islamic laws and regulations on the functioning of markets and, hence, on the long-term development of Muslim countries; why some countries have state religions; analogies between religious groups and terrorist organizations; the violent origins of the Dalai Lama’s brand of Tibetan Buddhism; and the use by the Catholic Church of saint-making as a way to compete against the rise of Protestant Evangelicals.

    *Rachel M. McCleary is a lecturer in the Department of Economics at Harvard University. Her books include The Oxford Handbook of the Economics of Religion.

    *Robert J. Barro is the Paul M. Warburg Professor of Economics at Harvard. His books include Education Matters: Global Schooling Gains from the 19th to the 21st Century and Economic Growth. They both live in Massachusetts.

  • Melissa Ohden & Claire Culwell — Abortion Survivors
    Melissa is the survivor of a failed saline infusion abortion in 1977. Despite the initial concerns regarding Melissa’s future after surviving the attempt to end her life at approximately seven months gestation, she has not only survived but thrived. With a Master’s Degree in Social Work, she has worked in the fields of substance abuse, mental health, domestic violence and sexual assault counseling, and child welfare. Melissa was formerly a College Outreach Speaker with Feminists for Life and is the former Patron of Real Choices Australia. She has testified before the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate, and the Australian Parliament. Melissa is on the Board of Directors for the Vitae Foundation, a national organization which uses media to advance a culture of life. In 2012, Melissa founded The Abortion Survivors Network (ASN). ASN seeks to educate the public about failed abortions and survivors while providing emotional, mental and spiritual support to abortion survivors. Since ASN’s inception, Melissa has been in contact with over 210 survivors. She is the author of You Carried Me, A Daughter's Memoir, which was released in January of 2017. After years of searching for her biological family and offering them forgiveness for the decision that was made to end her life, Melissa’s story, and her life, is so much more than one of survival.

    When Claire met her biological mother in March of 2009, she was told her life was a miracle. Claire's biological mom became pregnant at the age of 13. Her biological grandmother took her birth mother to an abortion clinic where she had a D and E procedure performed on her. Weeks later she realized she was still pregnant. After consulting with the abortionist who performed the first abortion, she was informed she had been pregnant with twins... only one of the twins had been aborted, the second baby had been undetected. Referred to an out-of-state late-term abortion clinic to do a second abortion, Claire's birthmother was told abortion would not be an option. Claire was born at 30 weeks gestation, weighing 3 lbs. 2 oz. She was adopted shortly after birth by an amazing family, whom she dearly loves.

  • TRIBUTE to Jean Vanier — (With Sister Sue Mosteller & Dr. Michael W. Higgins)

    JEAN VANIER
    Sept 10, 1928 - May 7, 2019
    Philosopher, writer, religious and moral leader, founder of communities for people with and without intellectual disabilities… and above all, a follower of Jesus, a peacemaker…

    Author of some 30 books, member of the Order of Canada, winner of the Templeton Prize, member of France’s Legion of Honour, member of the Order of Quebec, Jean Vanier was a widely recognized humanitarian, He was the founder of two international organizations dedicated to people with intellectual disabilities: L’Arche and Faith and Light. The 154 L’Arche communities in 38 countries and 1450 Faith and Light communities in 86 countries are places rich in human transformation. Those who live with people with intellectual disabilities leave transformed by what they have received and by the richness of the human relationships they have experienced. Having lived himself over 50 years with people with intellectual disabilities, Jean Vanier has been an ardent advocate for the most vulnerable and marginalized people in our societies. Jean Vanier regularly intervened in public forums, sharing about what he has witnessed and inviting us to acknowledge the gifts and valuable teachings that people with an intellectual disability can contribute to society once they are welcomed and loved. The message of Jean Vanier goes beyond religious and cultural barriers because it speaks to the basic and universal needs of each human being. The message of Jean Vanier redirects our attention to the importance of “being with” others, and most specifically with the most vulnerable. Each person is invited to go beyond personal ambitions to work for the wellbeing of others, attentive to their desires and needs. Only in this way will we discover the hidden treasures and beauty of each human being. L’Arche and Faith and Light are built on the conviction that people who have been judged to be useless and considered to be a financial burden are in fact sources of life who help us to fully embrace our humanity.

  • Remi Adeleke — Navy SEAL, Actor (Transformers: The Last Knight), Entrepreneur, Author of TRANSFORMED: A Navy SEAL's Unlikely Journey from the Throne of Africa, to the Streets of the Bronx, to Defying All Odds
    Statistics tell us that African American males who grow up in a single-parent household are nine times more likely to drop out of high school and twenty times more likely to end up in prison than any other demographic. But what would it take for one young man to not only to rise above those statistics but also become a Navy SEAL, actor, entrepreneur, writer, and successful husband and father? In Transformed, Remi Adeleke takes readers back to stories from his childhood as Nigerian royalty, to losing his father early in life and being financially stripped of everything by the Nigerian government. He delves into being raised by a single mother in the Bronx and doesn’t shy away from the illegal activities that threatened to derail his future. How could a person with this past end up where he is now? And to go a step further, how could a person who barely graduated high school, couldn’t swim, act or lead find great success in areas that require such skills? Having gone through times of intense struggle, racism, pressure, and failure, Adeleke answers those questions in his inspiring story of overcoming the odds, even when it didn’t make sense, and ultimately experiencing true personal transformation. *Remi Adeleke was born in Western Africa, but following the death of his father, he, his mother, and brother relocated permanently to the Bronx, New York. After years of making regrettable decisions, Remi joined the Navy in 2002 and later became a Navy SEAL. Ending his successful naval career in 2016, he was led to pursue careers in writing, speaking, modeling and acting, including the 2017 franchise film Transformers: The Last Knight.

  • Ryan St. Pierre
    Ryan St. Pierre was working in the trades and waiting tables in the evenings at a local restaurant. On weekends he was working as a fashion and print add model in Toronto, ON. In the early summer of 2001, Ryan received a call from his modelling agency that would surely and definitely change his future in unimaginable ways. They asked if he was musical in any way. Ryan immediately admitted that he was a singer/songwriter and could play several instruments (with a preference to the guitar). His agency was excited in expressing that they had a really unique audition opportunity for him that weekend in the big city. Ryan went to the audition not knowing what to expect but confidently brought and delivered an original song for the unknown hosts to hear and assess. “There were so many people auditioning for this mysterious musical opportunity, I truly didn’t think that I would receive a call back”. A few days later the phone rang again. Ryan’s agency told him that the label executives at the audition loved his original music and were calling him back for a second audition. At this time, Ryan was informed of the opportunity that he was auditioning for. He learned that several celebrity actors and musicians (Joshua Morrow, Eddie Cibrian, Howie Dorough, and C.J. Huyer) were amalgamating their resources to form Canada’s newest and hottest “Boy Band”. Although this wasn’t the musical direction Ryan had in mind, he didn’t for a moment consider passing up such a lucrative opportunity. The second audition was a success, and Ryan was offered one of two lead spots to front the band. In the Fall of 2001 Ryan officially signed a recording and management deal with EMI/Sextant Records to lead the newly created Boy Band group “Drop4”. The band went on to produce several high rotation spinning singles and music videos. In 2003 after two years with the band, Ryan made a difficult but important decision to leave “Drop4” and pursue a different musical direction on his own terms, utilizing his creative ideas and songs. In 2006, two songs that Ryan wrote were nominated for “Rock Song Of The Year”, and “Inspirational Song Of The Year”, at the 27th Annual Covenant Awards. NOW - after a nearly ten-year hiatus, Ryan is back on the music scene debuting a new solo album “Back To You” and ready to make his mark once again.

  • Matthew Paul Turner — Author of WHEN I PRAY FOR YOU
    In his most profound and beautiful book yet, best-selling author Matthew Paul Turner has given parents fresh words to speak over their children during story time in When I Pray for You. With his trademark rhythmical style, Turner wonderfully reveals the tender feelings connected with watching a beloved child grow and experience the world. Prior to becoming a parent, Turner had no idea how often he would pray for his children or how prayer would so profoundly affect him. Now, as the parent of three young children, Turner says, “In many ways, praying is a bit like breathing: a consistent, conscious and subconscious longing of hope on behalf of my kids. Praying over them has been healing for me, redeeming, and it brings peace to my sometimes anxious heart. It’s my hope that this book will empower parents with good words to speak over their children.” When I Pray for You celebrates the dreams, hopes, and longings that parents pray over their children while sharing with little ones how much care and concern a loved one feels for them. Kimberly Barnes’ vivid and exuberant illustrations accentuate the story, providing a colorful landscape for the many prayers that surround a child from the moment they are born to the day they venture into the world. When I Pray For You will appeal to those from diverse faith backgrounds, including Christian, Jewish and Muslim beliefs. *Matthew Paul Turner has authored more than 20 books including the Amazon top 5 best-selling When God Made You and When God Made Light, both of which were ECPA bestsellers.

  • Lilia Tarawa — Author of DAUGHTER OF GLORIAVALE: My Life in a Religious Cult
    Daughter of Gloriavale is one young woman’s true story of growing up in a repressive cult led by her charismatic grandfather, Hopeful Christian. In an idyllic valley in New Zealand, the Gloriavale Christian Community seemingly flourished. Founded by Lilia Tarawa’s grandfather, Hopeful Christian, Gloriavale was run according to an oppressive interpretation of fundamental Christianity and became a strictly controlled world of arranged marriages, religious control, and spiritual abuse. Born into the cult that her grandfather had started, and surrounded by friends and family, Gloriavale seemed like paradise for Lilia Tarawa at first. Her mother, Miracle, had grown up in there too and Lilia’s father managed a thriving moss export business, one of several companies owned by the community. As Lilia grew older, however, she began to see and experience the darker side of the cult, with its strict rules, tight control, and shocking abuse. As Lilia and her family started to question Gloriavale’s beliefs and practices, Lilia was forced to make a desperate choice: stay with people she loved or flee to a world that she had always been told was evil. In Daughter of Gloriavale, Lilia Tarawa exposes the shocking world of the secretive cult and details her heart-wrenching journey to break free, find happiness and discover her own strength.

  • Darcy Windover
    Ask any artist why they make music and chances are they’ll say that, at least in part, it’s a form of therapy. That was definitely true for Darcy Windover as he made his latest album whose title, Cope, pretty much says it all. For the Toronto - based singer/songwriter originally from Sarnia, Ontario, the new 10 - song collection is the summation of a difficult period revolving around his mother’s struggle with Alzheimer’s, and the mental toll it took on everyone close to her. That theme is encapsulated in the album’s opening track “How To Be Lonely,” which Windover specifically wanted to release to help fight the stigma surrounding anxiety and mental illness. Although, the song addresses tough issues, its anthemic, modern roots rock sound — the foundation for the album overall — is sure to inspire hope within anyone dealing with similar circumstances. Windover had previously entered the song in the 2017 edition of CBC’s Searchlight contest where it earned a more than respectable showing among the thousands of other entries. That momentum helped Windover complete Cope a year later with producer John Dinsmore (Kathleen Edwards, NQ Arbuckle) and his trusted band, including co-writer and duet partner Stacey Dowswell. Together, they built on the foundation of “How To Be Lonely” with songs that look at the causes and effects of mental illness from various perspectives. Some, like “This Is Gonna Hurt” and “Get By,” are powerful meditations on relationships in crisis, while others like “Simple Words” and “Where The Sound Don’t Go” explore the challenges of communicating effectively in our modern world. But what is perhaps most impressive about Cope is its immediate sonic appeal, particularly for anyone who appreciates classic roots-rock sounds. As a songwriter, Windover draws inspiration from his heroes such as Tom Petty, emphasizing melody, hooks, and atmosphere above all else, with a little twang for good measure. Sure, melancholy is unavoidable, but never as a distraction from pure songwriting Craftsmanship.
    *Darcy and his band invite you to their CD release party for their new album, COPE at The Dakota Tavern in Toronto on April 18th 7-9 PM.

  • Armin Navabi — Ex-Muslim Atheist, Secular Activist, Author, Founder of Atheist Republic
    In 2011, Armin Navabi founded the online freethought community Atheist Republic, a Canada-based non-profit organisation with consulates in several countries worldwide such as Mexico, Malaysia, South Africa and the Philippines, giving voice to over one million fans and followers and is dedicated to offering a community for atheists around the world to share their ideas and meet like-minded individuals. He is also the author of the best-selling book Why There Is No God and became a co-host of the Secular Jihadists from the Middle East podcast with Ali A. Rizvi, Yasmine Mohammad, and Faisal Saeed Al Mutar.

    Armin was born and raised in the Islamic Republic of Iran and was indoctrinated thoroughly in the Muslim tradition. After almost losing his life in the pursuit of God’s grace, the devastation of that event motivated him to seek a better understanding of the nature and concept of God and religious belief. Armin’s journey led him to leave Islam and becoming an atheist. Wanting to reach out to others like himself, Armin continues to examine religion as well as the notion of God and interact with others to engage in thought-provoking and educational discussion.

  • Frank Viola — Author of ReGRACE: What The Shocking Beliefs Of The Great Christians Can Teach Us
    Everyone is tired of seeing Christians act ungraciously toward one another when they disagree. Social media has added to the carnage. Christians routinely block each other on Facebook because of doctrinal disagreements. The world watches the blood-letting, and the Christian message is tarnished. But what if every Christian discovered that their favorite teacher in church history had blind spots and held to some false–and even shocking–views? Bestselling author Frank Viola argues that this simple awareness will help Christians lighten up when they interact with each other in the face of theological disagreements.

    In ReGrace, he uncovers some of the shocking beliefs held by faith giants like:

    C.S. Lewis believed that the Bible contained errors, and that not all parts of it were the Word of God, and that the creation account in Genesis may have been derived from pagan sources.
    Billy Graham said that people “who may not even know the name of Jesus but know in their hearts that they need something that they don’t have and they turn to the only light that they have, and I think that they are saved and that they’re going to be with us in heaven.”
    Jonathan Edwards believed that being a slave owner was not incompatible with being a follower of Jesus.
    Martin Luther held anti-Semitic views and believed Jewish people deserved persecution. • John Calvin believed in attacking his enemies with vicious name-calling, and that Old Testament capital offenses should be observed.
    John Wesley believed in ghosts, paranormal phenomenon, and in being idea “electrified daily” by a static electricity machine for good health.
    Charles Spurgeon held to political views that many evangelicals would find unbiblical.
    D.L. Moody embraced the Christian evolutionist Henry Drummond as the most Christ-like man he ever met.

    Viola believes followers of Christ need to recover grace—a rediscovery he calls regrace. He challenges readers to embrace humility in matters of political discourse and theological difference. With his trademark humor and direct approach, he lays out a model for graciously identifying and dealing with theological disagreement that is simple, practical, and down-to-earth.

    (That’s all we’re saying.)

Special Guests

  • Peter Enns — Biblical Scholar, Podcaster, Author of HOW THE BIBLE ACTUALLY WORKS: In Which I Explain How an Ancient, Ambiguous, and Diverse Book Leads Us to Wisdom, Rather Than Answers—and Why That’s Great News
    Peter Enns is beloved for his irreverent, progressive, and faithful perspective on the Bible. In his previous books The Bible Tells Me So and The Sin of Certainty, Peter debunked common beliefs that we project onto the Bible which steer us in the wrong direction and, he argues, cause all sorts of spiritual problems. Now, Peter explains how the Bible actually works and why it speaks to us so powerfully even when it does not behave as we think it should. “The Bible becomes a confusing mess when we expect it to function as a rulebook for faith. But when we allow the Bible to determine our expectations, we see that Wisdom, not answers, is the Bible’s true subject matter.” HOW THE BIBLE ACTUALLY WORKS outlines the three defining characteristics of the Bible: that it is ancient, ambiguous, and diverse. These qualities, Enns maintains, demonstrate that humanity’s understanding of God is an ongoing process. Enns argues that the Bible itself invites readers to consider context and their own circumstances as they interpret and reinterpret scripture. HOW THE BIBLE ACTUALLY WORKS makes clear that there is no one right way to read the Bible. Moving us beyond the damaging idea that “being right” is the most important measure of faith, Enns’s freeing approach to Bible study helps us to instead focus on pursuing enlightenment and building our relationship with God—which is exactly what the Bible was designed to do. *Peter Enns is the Abram S. Clemens Professor of Biblical Studies at Eastern University in St. David’s, Pennsylvania, and has taught at Harvard University Theological Seminary and Princeton Theological Seminary. He is the host of The Bible for Normal People podcast, is a frequent contributor to journals and encyclopedias, and is the author of several books, including The Sin of Certainty, The Bible Tells Me So, and Inspiration and Incarnation.

  • Doug Lynam — Former Monk, Former Marine, Author of FROM MONK TO MONEY MANAGER: A Former Monk’s Financial Guide to Becoming a Little Bit Wealthy - And Why That’s Okay
    Doug Lynam used to be a monk, and he’s now a financial advisor. He’s a sort of unicorn to most people, but that’s what makes this book so important. For too long religion and money have been held separate. But as Lynam says, “The cold, hard truth is that in this modern life we need money. We can’t live our lives and serve others without it.”Lynam joined a monastery, in part, to escape the world of money and ended up spending more time worrying about money than almost anyone in the outside world because the monastery was going broke – and he had to fix it. Another irony, directly related to the first, is that he learned he is good at helping people with their financial problems. The lessons Lynam learned as a monk made him realize that the most powerful way for him to have an impact in the world was to leave the monastery and advise people about their finances full time. From Monk to Money Manager, is for adults of all ages, religions, and political persuasions because the discussion of ethics and money impacts you regardless of your beliefs. He believes the lack of money is the key driver for most of the suffering in the world, and if we can face that problem squarely, honestly, and with good minds and hearts we can mitigate some of the worst problems in the world. More specifically, the book is aimed at anyone who wants to learn how to become wealthy while remaining an ethical person.

  • NUA
    NUA is an award-winning innovative trad trio, bringing a fresh and unique sound to traditional music, creating their own distinctive original compositions, balanced with traditional and contemporary tunes drawn from Irish and Scottish traditions. Based in Toronto, Canada, NUA consists of three award-winning members: fiddle player James Law, guitarist Graeme McGillivray, and bodhrán player Jacob McCauley. The interaction between the three is what really makes the music shine, whether it be their soaring melodies or tasteful grooves. The original tune-writing of NUA gives their music its groundbreaking, adventurous quality, as demonstrated on their debut album BOLD and follow-up album FLOW. Bordering on progressive, while hinting at the traditions of the past, NUA’s compositions will take you on an exhilarating journey, creating an atmosphere and mood unique to the listener. The trio is also well known for their exciting incorporation of odd time signatures and polyrhythms, which give the music an electrifying lift and spontaneity. Each member adds his own distinctive sound and influence to the music. Although NUA is a trio with a sole melody player, the brilliant multi-tasking of each member is demonstrated countless times with perhaps a guitar-driven flat-picked melody, rhythmic fiddle playing, or melodic bodhrán playing to add to the mix. The ability of each member to take on multiple roles is one of the staples of NUA. This adds to a thrilling live experience and a “you just don’t know what’s coming next” approach! “Challenging melodies and rhythms ripped out at an impressive pace, without any loss of definition or detail. To achieve this level of impact with only three pairs of hands takes rare skill” (Irish Music Magazine)

  • Neale Donald Walsch — Award Winning Author of CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD
    Neale Donald Walsch is a modern day spiritual messenger whose words continue to touch the world in profound ways. With an early interest in religion and a deeply felt connection to spirituality, Neale spent the majority of his life thriving professionally, yet searching for spiritual meaning before experiencing his now famous conversation with God. The Conversations with God series of books that emerged from those encounters have been translated into 37 languages, touching millions and inspiring important changes in their day-to-day lives. Neale has written 33 books on spirituality and its practical application in everyday life. Conversations with God has redefined God and shifted spiritual paradigms around the globe. In order to deal with the enormous response to his writings, Neale has created an internet platform, www.CWGConnect.com where the scope and breadth of the CWG messages may be explored and deeply studied, in audio, video, and written form, and where readers may get answers to any questions they may have about the material in the Ask Neale blog. Neale's work has taken him from the steps of Machu Picchu in Peru to the steps of the Shinto shrines of Japan, from Red Square in Moscow to St. Peters Square in Vatican City to Tiananmen Square in China. And everywhere he has gone--from South Africa to Norway, Croatia to The Netherlands, the streets of Zurich to the streets of Seoul--Neale has experienced a hunger among the people to find a new way to live, at last, in peace and harmony, and he has sought to bring people a new understanding of life and of God which would allow them to experience that.

  • Kerri Rawson — (Daughter Of The BTK Killer) - Author of A SERIAL KILLER’S DAUGHTER: My Story Of Hope, Love and Overcoming
    What is it like to learn that your normal, loving father is a serial killer? In 2005, Kerri Rawson heard a knock on the door of her apartment. When she opened it, an FBI agent informed her that her father had been arrested for murdering ten people, including two children. It was then that she learned her father was the notorious serial killer known as BTK, a name he’d given himself that described the horrific way he committed his crimes: bind, torture, kill. As news of his capture spread, Wichita celebrated the end of a thirty-one-year nightmare. For Kerri Rawson, another was just beginning. She was plunged into a black hole of horror and disbelief. The same man who had been a loving father, a devoted husband, church president, Boy Scout leader, and a public servant had been using their family as a cover for his heinous crimes since before she was born. Everything she had believed about her life had been a lie. Written with candor and extraordinary courage, A Serial Killer's Daughter is an unflinching exploration of life with one of America’s most infamous killers and an astonishing tale of personal and spiritual transformation. For all who suffer from unhealed wounds or the crippling effects of violence, betrayal, and anger, Kerri Rawson’s story offers the hope of reclaiming sanity in the midst of madness, rebuilding a life in the shadow of death, and learning to forgive the unforgivable.

  • Dr. Omri Gillath — Attachment Theory Expert, Professor of Psychology, University of Kansas
    Dr. Omri Gillath's riveting TEDx talk explores his trailblazing research on the intrinsic benefits of secure relationships. Combining neuroimaging, gene mapping, and advanced cognitive techniques, his extensive research reveals that a healthy attachment with another person not only leads to happiness, but is integral to overall physical health. *Dr. Gillath’s research focuses on close relationships and their underlying mechanisms. In the past few years he has investigated the psychological aspect of behavioral systems, especially the attachment, caregiving, and sexual mating systems. He’s expanding this work by using neuroimaging techniques, physiological measures, and endocrine markers to examine a diverse range of correlates and underpinnings of socially significant behavioral systems. Dr. Gillath’s work explores the associations between a person's attachment style (relationship style) and goals and behaviors in the caregiving and sexual domains (e.g., ability to provide and receive compassionate care; interest in short- vs. long-term mating strategies). He is also exploring the effects of increasing people's sense of attachment security on their tendency to engage in prosocial behavior, their altruistic and sexual attitudes, and their goals, as well as their attentional strategies. In a separate line of research, Dr. Gillath is looking at online and offline social networks, their characteristics, and the way they change over time. He also looks at the links between one's attachment style and his or her social network.

  • Patreon People — Drew Shares Letters From TDMS Patrons
    Recently, a few podcast patrons of The Drew Marshall show have shared why they listen to the most awkwardly authentic spiritual talk show.
    PATREON EXPLAINED: As a result of a sudden large increase in production costs, Drew was encouraged by a few friends to begin a Patreon campaign. Becoming a Patron of TDMS is primarily for anyone consuming the commercial free podcasts. The thinking is, that if a lot of people contribute a little each month, this will help Drew cover the new $15,000 rise in costs.

  • Diamond Dallas Page (DDP) — WWE Hall Of Fame Wrestler, Yoga Guru, Author of POSITIVELY UNSTOPPABLE: The Art of Owning It
    What would you attempt to do if you knew that your success was a certainty? Most often it’s what we believe we are capable of that determines our path to greatness…or mediocrity. Diamond Dallas Page, former pro-wrestling champion turned fitness guru and inspirational powerhouse, knows all too well that, with the right attitude and a relentless work ethic, it’s possible to overcome any obstacle and become healthy and successful beyond your wildest dreams. He has proven it time and again; first with his own life, and then, over the last 15 years, as he’s helped his close friends and complete strangers completely transform their lives with his DDPY fitness system. Dallas also knows that the primary reason so many of us are stuck—whether in unhappy relationships, dead-end jobs, or with self-destructive habits—is because we choose not to truly take ownership of our own lives. Now with POSITIVELY UNSTOPPABLE: The Art of Owning It, he gets to the core of what may be holding you back from profound life change—physically, mentally, and emotionally—and offers a stepwise, no bullsh*t roadmap for achieving your ultimate goals… *DDP is a retired pro-wrestling champion. After rupturing multiple discs in his back and discovering the restorative effects of yoga, he created the phenomenally successful DDPY fitness program that integrates sports rehabilitation techniques, body weight calisthenics, dynamic resistance, and yoga. DDP has inspired countless men, women and even children - many who have lost hope - to believe in themselves and as a result transform their lives. These results include: dramatic weight loss, relief of chronic back, neck + shoulder pain and break addiction to drugs + alcohol. He is a sought-after inspirational speaker and fitness guru who holds live fitness workshops around the world. In 2017, he was inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame.

  • Shirley Thiessen — JOURNEY
    It’s not if, but when. Those who love will also grieve. Six years ago, Shirley Thiessen experienced what she describes as her worst nightmare. . . the death of child. Twelve days after celebrating her twenty-three-year old son’s wedding, Shirley was thrown into the unimaginable task of planning his funeral. Grief threatened to extinguish her divine spark. A crisis of faith and the loss of purpose led Shirley to the end of herself. Gradually, a new choice was made. With a promise to always say “yes” to participating, Shirley began to fervently ask God for opportunities to leverage her grief for His glory. She was, and is, desperate to see redemptive purposes in the pain. The resulting adventures are evidence that God’s power finds it full expression through brokenness. Shirley has written about her journey in the book, “The Little Black Funeral Dress – Five Things I wish I Had Known About Grief”.

  • Christina Rasmussen — Author of WHERE DID YOU GO?: A Life-Changing Journey to Connect with Those We’ve Lost
    “Where did you go?” This was the first question Christina Rasmussen asked after the death of her husband. A young widow with two daughters, Christina would go on to become an esteemed grief educator who helped countless others rebuild their lives after loss. Yet, even as she learned to thrive again, that first heartbreaking question persisted. Even as she and her clients forged new paths and discovered new joy, the same questions remained: Are we capable of connecting to those who have passed on? What really happens after we die? As a professional grounded in science, Christina was a skeptic who shied away from the conventional mystical, supernatural, and religious descriptions of the afterlife—so she turned to what seemed “provable” to unravel the mystery of life beyond life: physics. What she found was beyond anything she could have expected: not only is there life after death, but we all have the ability to connect with loved ones who have passed on. Sharing an inspiring message of hope, optimism, and love, Where Did You Go? is a transporting step-by-step guide to journeying to the other side, from one of our most trusted voices on life after loss. Bridging the gap between the metaphysical and the measurable, it will change the way we grieve, the way we live and how we define our potential—in this life and the hereafter.
