What a jam packed episode we have for you today friends! First up, we speak with the unstoppable team of Jeni Walls and Stephan Dickson, producers of the online performing arts talk show and open mic, Singular Sensation. Our second guest is the iconic, Mandy Goodhandy, singer, author, advocate, entrepreneurial force, and Canada’s first transgender woman stand up comedian.
Jeni Walls is the hostess with the mostess! She’s been the face of Singular Sensation for years now and had found a great home for the show in downtown Toronto at the 120Diner, until, the pandemic hit. When the shutdown happened Jeni pivot ball-changed with the rest of our community, partnered with Stephan Dickson as a producer and took the show from stage to stream! Singular Sensation has since grown and expanded its programming by adding monthly open mics, partnering with the Canadian Green Alliance to produce a green panel series, and promoting many of our communities small businesses through advertisements during their shows. This duo has big dreams for Singular Sensation, and we can’t wait to watch those dreams flourish.
Mandy Goodhandy is Toronto royalty and above all, a matriarch who creates safe spaces for people to express themselves. Mandy is a singer and author, with a book and CD both entitled ‘Just Call Me Lady’. She is a transgender rights advocate, dancer, and business mogul. She is Canada’s first transgender woman stand-up comic, first transgender woman to be accepted to sing in the Toronto Jazz Festival in 2016 and the Winterfolk Blues & Roots festival in 2021, and most recently added the title of feature columnist to her resume with interview style articles published in Pinkpages and Buzz Magazine, Toronto’s queer publications.
