On Saturday, Nov 19th, 2016, Cody Deaner was a surprise guest on CBC Radio's hit show "Sleepover" with Sook-Yin Lee.
"Sleepover takes us inside an unusual social encounter, where three complete strangers agree to meet in a hotel room for an evening, night, and morning together.
In each episode, with Sook-Yin's guidance, one stranger takes the spotlight and presents a problem from their life. The other two offer advice and bring up related experiences from their own unique perspectives." (from cbc.ca/sleepover)
Cody had the following to say on his facebook page about his experience on CBC:
"Awhile back, the producers of CBC's hit radio show and podcast SleepoverCBC contacted me about being a guest on Sook-Yin Lee's special "Power Nap" edition of the live version of their podcast that would be staged at the Hot Docs Podcast Festival in Toronto. I was somewhat hesitant at first ... but am very glad I said yes. Here's why ...
The concept of the show is unique and such a fantastic idea. On the show, three strangers from different walks of life stay in a hotel room together overnight. During the sleepover, each guest comes with a problem and your fellow strangers try to help you solve it. This process is usually intimate, funny, deep, and quite frankly ... LONG. They spend 24 hours together!
But, this past Saturday ... we did the "power nap" version. We did it LIVE ... and we only had 90 minutes to help each other. What followed was definitely funny, and to my surprise, was also deep and at times intimate.
I will not go into details about my problem, the other guests' problems, or how it all unfolded. The live audience got to experience that ... and you will too ... eventually. You'll just have to listen in when it airs on CBC radio to find out all the funny and intimate details!
I'll be sure to keep you all posted when it be airing on CBC radio and available for download. In the meantime, you can head on over to cbc.ca/sleepover to learn more about the show and listen to previous episodes.
Thank you Sook-Yin, thank you CBC, thank you Hotdocs Theatre, and thank you Toronto.
Stay tuned Deaner fans! In the meantime, keep givin'er!
