We’re making a few changes. For now, no more picture shows but we’ll be back soon with some brand new funk.


The project to build CTN started a year and a half ago, and a lot has changed since we started. What began as a podcast about personal stories is now about the guests Terrence Taylor interviews and their experiences.

From growing up as a Black person in North End Halifax, to teaching student athletes from marginalized communities the importance of education, the goal of all episodes is to be informative. Changing The Narrative will continue to grow with the communities that we serve.


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.
