HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA – A podcast born out of an all too familiar frustration; navigating life as an aspiring creative. How do you pay the bills? How do you grow? How did you get anywhere in this city? Well, Duane Jones, Terrence Taylor and Lauren Sears are set to give you a raw, unfiltered look at their journey. The trio’s new podcast, Changing the Narrative (CTN) seeks to shine a light on life as a creative, and provide an open forum for conversation about various topics through their eyes.

All three members of CTN are bound by similar ambition, passion, and goals, but all came from very different backgrounds. Terrence Taylor is a Las Vegas native and the owner of Terrence Taylor Media, an Atlantic Canadian video production company that pairs video storytelling and creative marketing strategies. Lauren Sears, co-founder Placemaking4G, has a goal to change the perspective of our “have not” Atlantic provinces. Duane Jones, owner of the clothing brand Art Pays Me is a Bermudian born graphic designer who is an established figure in the Halifax’s fashion scene. “Terrence is the great connector” says Jones. “We had talked about doing a podcast at some point”. Coincidently all three met separately over the past year and it all began to come together.


Terrence Taylor

Terrence Taylor was born in Las Vegas, Nevada but has spent half of his life in Atlantic Canada. The 30 year old is the founder of Terrence Taylor Media, a social enterprise video production company that creates video content to showcase the stories of brands, businesses and entrepreneurs.

He is also videographer at Common Good Solutions. Terrence believes that in order to become better versions of ourselves, we must challenge each other, become more comfortable saying “I don’t know” and continually seek self-reflection.

His goal on the show is to encourage authenticity and facilitate the conversation to challenge co-hosts, guests and listeners their own personal narratives.
