We're inviting people from around Newfoundland and Labrador — and beyond — to come have a chat, teach us something new or even sing us a tune.

Fancy a folk tune on Thursday night? 

On April 2 at 7:30 p.m. NT. Matthew Byrne, traditional singer, storyteller and guitarist will join us live for a chat and a few songs, as part of our Chats from the Couch series on our Instagram channel. 

Don't miss it! 

We can also tell you about our next episode, too. 

On Monday, April 6 at 11 a.m., Janine Hubbard will be online to talk about self-care during the pandemic. Adam Walsh of the St. John's Morning Show is going to chat with her about that. 

About Chats from the Couch


Whether you're self-isolating, quarantining, working remotely or simply practising social distancing … it's a lonely time for a lot of people. But just because we can't be together during the COVID-19 crisis doesn't mean we can't come together! ⁣

Chats from the Couch is our new Instagram live series where we invite people in the community to join us from their couch — whether they're sharing a skill, singing a tune or just having a gab, it's a great way for us to stay connected while social distancing.

We're all in this together.

We'll update this page with the couches we're visiting but be sure to follow us on Instagram here so you don't miss it.

So far, we've talked with actor Mark O'Brien; Geraldine and Phil from The Once; and Orathai Chongmee, who showed us how to cook a delicious Thai dish.
