The Bonn Park podcast features hosts Marshall Ward and Sara Geidlinger, who chat in-depth with fascinating people living, working, and creating in Waterloo Region -- an area known as the "creative capital of Canada." Each episode features a different guest, with artists, writers, experts, entrepreneurs, and other creative folk talking about their motivations, inspirations, and aspirations. Marshall is a longtime newspaper columnist who has interviewed Hollywood celebrities and local characters; Sara is a photographer who loves to find out what makes people tick. Together, their show emulates the feel of sparking up a conversation with an interesting stranger in a park, which is how Marshall and Sara met (in Waterloo's Bonn Park) and discovered their shared interest in Waterloo Region's creative community.
