Join me with Nana as she shares wisdom from her generation and growing up in Newfoundland.
Today's episode of the podcast is very special to me. It's one of those episodes I know I'll go back and listen to in years to come. Miah's sweet Nana joined me on this podcast quite a few months ago and I had thought I'd lost the audio file. But much to my delight, I found it and am happy to share her with you all.
