Arts Party

The art of music, the art of books, the art of retirement — all are part of this Go-To Grandma podcast. Multi-platinum selling artist Matt Dusk joins Kathy Buckworth to talk about the power and magic of music and how it can positively affect young children. Later in the show, guest panellists and children’s book authors Helaine Becker and Caroline Fernandez share what it takes to write a page-turner that kids, parents and grandparents will all adore (over and over again).

Afterwards, Rick Lowes, Vice President of Retirement Strategy at RBC reveals insights from the latest RBC Retirement Myths & Realities poll — and how Canadians’ perspectives on retirement have shifted over the last 18 months.


Home Tech and Video Games

Tech expert Amber Mac joins Kathy Buckworth to share her thoughts on the technology every grandparent should have in their home, with tips on how to get started with Smart Home devices — even if your technical know-how is limited. Tech journalist and podcaster Marc Saltzman next recommends the best games to play with grandkids that develop skills in collaboration, coding and communication. Not to mention good, old-fashioned competition.
