About us

New Brunswick has a reputation of being the ‘have not’ province of Canada. We are a group of university students who challenge this notion. We are giving voices to changemakers and showcasing the great things New Brunswick has to offer. To do this, we highlight the many talents and endeavours of local entrepreneurs, and we talk to them about their successes, joys, and struggles. Join us on our journey as we make our little province speak volumes.

This is The Drop: A Podcast.

We are inspired by the greatness that New Brunswick has to offer. On this podcast, you can expect speakers in all different disciplines who help make this province great. If you have a story that you want shared, please let us know. We would be happy to have you!
