On the Marge
Chuck, Mara, their six-year-old daughter Alex, and their golden retriever Quark run the Walnut Crescent Bed and Breakfast in Whitehorse. They take turns telling about the quirky situations and people they encounter. Is life in Yukon really that close to the frontier of eccentricity?
1. First Night
Chuck never really planned to be in the bed and breakfast business. He just sort of walked into it.
2. Crazy German
Franz wasn't one of the crazy Germans. Not at first, anyway.
3. The Day the Dam Broke
The power dam keeps Schwatka Lake from flooding Whitehorse. What do you do when it cracks?
In Yukon, people come together in ways we can never predict.
We are all sad in Yukon. But sad (or SAD) means different things to different people.
6. All the World's a Bus
All the world's a bus, and all the men and women merely passengers. But then the comfortable predictability of the bus routine changes.
7. Cache Prize
Seek and you will find... sometimes more than what you were looking for.
8. Climate Change
Whitehorse does not have a fully developed beach culture. Or at least it didn't have one until climate change arrived.
9. French Connection
One should never judge a book by its cover... because covers, by their very nature, cover things up. So what was inside Vincent's cover?
...and a new episode every week!

The series then continues with short stories about some of the characters that appear in Off the Track as they face real-life dilemmas: To vaccinate? Was that really an angel? Winning her heart... and the lottery...

People without military experience imagine that Canadian military life is just like American war movies: screaming drill sergeants (Full Metal Jacket), broken lives and broken hearts (Officer and a Gentleman), or egos and historical legacy (Patton). Sure, there might be a bit of that but real life in the Canadian army is much more entertaining, more like M*A*S*H.
This podcast presents short stories from the life of a Canadian signal officer in Canada and overseas. Not at all like Apocalypse Now!
