Sprung from their hugely successful podcast Canadianity, Taggart (that guy from that band) and Torrens (that guy from that show) share a collection of showbiz tales from the road and relatable everyday anecdotes, all wrapped up in a nostalgic fondness for this great country.
Canadianity takes readers on a cross-country journey, shining the spotlight on notable local heroes (or bahds), the best places to crush food and the greasiest watering holes, coast to coast to coast. Replete with lists of Canada’s top bands, television shows and athletes, as well as random observations about everything this country has to offer, Canadianity is often provocative and always hilarious.
Drawing on their combined experiences as a legendary drummer (Our Lady Peace) and a veteran talk-show host (Jonovision) respectively, Taggart and Torrens have infused their first book with equal parts beer and pop culture and added a heaping helping of irreverence.
JONATHAN TORRENS was born in Charlottetown and raised in Sherwood, Prince Edward Island, before moving to Halifax to attend high school. He hosted CBC's teen-oriented consumer affairs show Street Cents and the talk show Jonovision before appearing in a number of television productions, including Trailer Park Boys as the memorable J-Roc, Degrassi: The Next Generation, Wipeout Canada and Mr. D. He launched, with Jeremy Taggart, the top-rated Canadianity podcast in January 2014. He lives in rural Nova Scotia with his wife and daughters.
JEREMY TAGGART was born in Toronto and raised in Mansfield, Ontario. He is a founding member and former drummer of the iconic Canadian rock band Our Lady Peace, and has worked with a number of high-profile Canadian musicians, including Chantal Kreviazuk, Geddy Lee, and the Arkells. He forms half of the TnT Canadianity duo, and lives in Toronto.

We recognize we are situated on Treaty 6 Territory, traditional meeting land and home of many Indigenous Peoples including Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Métis and Nakota Sioux Peoples.
