Hello. My name is Dan.
My last name is Misener.1
I was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Now I live in Toronto, Ontario with my wife, Jenna.
I make radio for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Right now, I work on Spark, CBC’s national technology and trendwatching show. I’m also a technology columnist for 21 CBC afternoon shows across the country, and for cbc.ca.
For four seasons, I was a regular contributor to the Saturday morning show Go. I mixed the award-winning grammar and language show, And Sometimes Y. I’ve made stuff for DNTO and Lost and Found, and produced a bunch of short docs for the CBC’s Content Factory and Radio Syndication.
I also teach radio production part-time at Ryerson University.
I was in a rock and roll band called The Canaries. Now I’m in a rock and roll band called The Sweat.
As a New Year’s Resolution, I started a reading series called Grownups Read Things They Wrote as Kids.
As another New Year’s resolution, I started a community WiFi network.
Now you (if you didn’t already) probably know enough.
