How It All Began:

In 2019, Samantha began to do a weekly live video broadcast, based on the Cochrane, Alberta upcoming events. When Covid-19 hit in early 2020 and many events were cancelled, Samantha suddenly had a weekly show with no events to talk about.

Enter a great support system and team of friends, who stepped up for some conversation and the weekly Cochrane Coffee Chat was born. Interviewing new guests each week, the Coffee Chat helped us all stay informed and somewhat entertained about our town and lent a feeling of connection during times of Covid-19 isolation/lockdown.

Events did return to Cochrane (albeit differently) in mid 2020, but we were already too busy chatting with Cochranites to stop… so we didn’t! Thus, we revamped to the ‘Locals Talk, Local Matters’ show.

Cochrane Events & Community News – every Thursday at 4pm LIVE on Facebook and You Tube.


Locals Talk, Local Matters + Special Guests – dates and time to come soon!
