The Person Wearing the Hat

Avrum, creator of HatRadio!, spent over a decade on commercial radio including Toronto’s CFRB and Talk 640 co-producing and co-hosting quirky and delightful food and restaurants shows with Hollywood stars and singers like Michael Buble, prolific chefs, restauranteurs, servers and of course foodies from all over the world. (He is the founder of Ve’ahavata, Canada’s only Jewish humanitarian organization, a writer and a dad.)

Schmoozing Podcasts

HatRadio!’s Tagline is “The show that schmoozes”. Avrum’s intention through this new and refreshing podcast is to create an environment that reflects an (honest and earthy) midnight talk amongst friends around a bonfire where ideas and feelings flow freely and the participants have many honest and often courageous “Uhu” moments. (Avrum is hoping these interviews will reflect positive human behaviour and inspire many to pursue greater goodness and kindness)
