Our 50th Episode! The 905er Podcast

It's taken almost six months to get here, but Roland and Joel reflect on the journey so far. Its been a winding path, but a lot the help comes down to our Patreon supporters.  Their support has helped us grow this into what it's become so far.  We are grateful for their support. This podcast has provided us a chance to talk about the forces that are shaping the region, and talk with the people who are influencing what that shape becomes.  We hope to continue this for another 50 episodes and beyond.

Covid-19 has upended a lot of norms in our lives. Most impacted has been the tourism and hospitality sectors. Where business was most often conducted face to face and in more intimate and comfortable surroundings, the entire industry has been forced to throw out old business models and invent new ones.

We spoke with Jason Cassis a few weeks ago, about trying a new business venture in the middle of this pandemic. This week we spoke with Andrea Kaiser, Chair of Wineries of Niagara on the Lake. A wine industry marketing association for Niagara wineries. It was a fascinating discussion on what they have been doing to survive the pandemic and and how they are retooling to adapt to a different future than what we are used to.

These talks have given me renewed sense of optimism about our post-COVID-19 world. And how we can create something new and better than what we had before.
