Special Guests

  • Alice Cooper — International Recording Artist
    The name Alice Cooper is synonymous with a stage show that featured guillotines, electric chairs, fake blood and boa constrictors. His theatrical brand of rock music drew from horror movies, vaudeville, heavy metal and garage rock. This one of a kind shock rocker's career now spans five decades. However, Alice has a Faith - a genuine spiritual journey which many seem shocked to discover.

  • George Stroumboulopoulos — Host of The Hour on CBC
    From The Fan 590 to 102.1 The Edge to MuchMusic and City TV Toronto, it looks like George has finally found his home. George is CBC's attempt to attract a younger demographic - ones who aren't busy sipping sherry whilst listening to Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, contemplating their next chess move, waiting for the David Suzuki newsletter to arrive.

  • Hannah Rigg
    Last year we received an email from a listener in Marshall, Texas who told us that her 20-year old sister had just been killed in a car accident. And to make matters worse, when Hannah was only 13, her 19-year old brother was murdered. "Sure I could say, 'Alright God, I'm throwing in the towel, cashing in my chips, see ya later,' but in all honesty, I don't think I could have gotten through either of those losses without the knowledge that I will always have my ultimate refuge to fall back on. I wouldn't trade my life for the world. I can't help but think that God doesn't ever allow us to go through something if he didn't believe we could come out the other side, with His help, a victor. If that's the case, God thinks very highly of my family. So in a morbid and almost creepy way, I consider it an honour that God chose a family that could have victory over trials rather than a family that would lose faith amidst them." Today, we'll hear Hannah's journey!

Talkback, etc.

  • Did a Brampton Church go too far?
    Last week we read in the news about a woman complaining about a sign in front of a Brampton church which read, "Lying in bed shouting 'Oh God' doesn't constitute going to church." The local authorities asked the church to take down the sign. Did this comment make you smile or did the church go too far?

  • The Counsel Of Many!
    Need Help or Advice On An Issue In Your Life?
    Tell us your situation and Drew will ask the listeners of TDMS!

    This week - a couple considering adoption wants to know if they should have children before they adopt or adopt first. And should they adopt a child similar to their own ethnicity so the child doesn't feel out of place, or does that really matter?

    "My husband and I are interested in adopting as we know there are so many children that need a home. We'd also like to have our own children but not sure if the two go together? Should we decide on one way or the other? How would adopted children feel growing up in a family that has biological children as well? If we adopt internationally how would that child feel knowing they look different, despite being loved the same? Anyone with experience?"
