Avid explorer. Fellow Canadian. Hopeless romantic.
That’s just the tip of the Kristen Manieri iceberg, and she is kind and generous to a fault (Canadian). That includes with her time, letting me interview her about her main professional love, the Orlando Date Night Guide.
Along with that, we got into her college experience, the Canadian music scene, and writing. Never afflicted with writer’s block, Kristen has the wherewithal to be a very prolific writer. Eventually, she decided to hang her own shingle doing what she has come to love, exploring Orlando and sharing her discoveries with others.
If you missed this episode, it also featured some great Canadian music. And Kristen will have to come back in the future because she didn’t quite agree with all my song choices.
0:00 – Welcome Kristen! Let’s get to know her through a game called Take the Money or Run.

26:24 – A little background on the path Kristen took to eventually get to Orlando Date Night Guide.
45:17 – Talking Canadian music before getting into Bad Business Ideas (patent pending).

49:20 – “It’s really like swaddling for adults.”
57:48 – College talk with Kristen. What was it like in the great white north?
1:09:45 – Pop culture and current event quiz. Marilyn’s dress, a movie based on the band Queen, and Englebert Humperdink. And she goes four for four.
1:17:20 – Wrapping up! Chatting a little bit more about what you can find on Kristen’s site. Even if you’re not dating, it’s quite a resource for places to go.
