Episode 82: The Nook Cafe

This week, I sat down with Lynsae and Marnie, the mother-daughter duo behind The Nook Cafe, a cozy new spot bringing accessibility and inclusivity to the heart of Edmonton. I've had siblings on the show, as well as many guests who run businesses with their partners, but it was super cool to have my first interview with a mother and daughter who work together!
