Welcome to the department!

Hosted by the multi-talented Naomi Snieckus, Firecracker Department is a sit-down with the brightest minds and most charismatic women in entertainment, representing the full spectrum of ‘the biz’ But despite their showbiz superpowers, none can resist the targeted charm of their host. With each interview, Naomi and her guest kick off their shoes, pour a glass of wine and begin a very informal conversation, that is real and often intensely-personal. It’s funny, frank talk about success, life in the public eye, the victories, embarrassments and vagaries of fame.

What is something you'd pursue? 


The feedback you gave us was amazing, so much so that Naomi recorded and commented on your answers. Have a listen at this bonus episode, below!

Hey firecrackers! If you've been following us on social media, you might recall that a few weeks ago we hosted our very first LIVE podcast!! The event was in conjunction with The Canadian Academy of Cinema and Television, and as a part of Canadian Screen Week, we assembled a panel of firecrackers at The Bell Media House and had an incredible chat. Oh and to top it off, we did this on International Women's Day, which made it that much better! Our guests were Friday Myers (Production Designer, 'Anne'), Sarah Kolasky (Writer, Actress 'Great Great Great'), Allie MacDonald (Actress 'Cardinal'), Rakhee Morzaria (Creator, Actress 'Note To Self') and Joyce Wong (Director 'Wexford Plaza'). The chat was intimate, funny, and each of these kick-ass women really opened up about their journey's in the industry. Man, we walked out of there so inspired! Give this a listen and enjoy!
