On this edition of the Richard Crouse Show we meet Adam Growe. You may know him a standup comedian, a corporate entertainer or even a foster parent to seven children. But he’s likely most recognized as being Canada’s favourite cab driver. He hosted the Canadian trivia-based game show “Cash Cab” for roughly eight years between 2008 and 2015, in which he’d quiz unsuspecting riders with general knowledge questions for their chance to collect money while he drove them from place to place.

“Cash Cab” and Adam Growe return with a new spin on the old show… “Cash Cab Music.” Adam is back behind the wheel of a newly-renovated disco taxi, testing his cab customers on musical trivia. Get three wrong and you’re out but get the answers right and you can win cash and even sing some karaoke.

Then, we get to know Shilpi Somaya Gowda is the New York Times bestselling, award-winning author whose novels have been translated into over 30 languages, been #1 international bestsellers in several countries and sold more than two million copies worldwide.

Her newest book, “A Great Country,” has been named an Anticipated/Top Book of 2024 by over a dozen publications, a Heather’s Pick at Indigo, and received a starred review from Publishers’ Weekly.

From the Social Media North @somedianorth Twitter Account

We’ve seen a shift in consumer tastes more toward having a tangible product in your hand (such as a CD) rather than intangible downloads. @RichardCrouse #SocialMediaNorth

Don’t look at your creative work as separate from “a real job.” Better to take your creative career seriously in order to succeed. @RichardCrouse #SocialMediaNorth

From the beginning of his career, @RichardCrouse has found it more productive to ask forgiveness rather than permission. #SocialMediaNorth
