The Eager Beaver (pronouns He / Him / Hey Mr. Beaver, eh?, aka Douglas Connors) is the founder, creator, and writer of The True North Eager Beaver blog page on Facebook. After 10 years of writing, he ventured into a podcast version of the blog in late April 2021. A political communications strategist by training (and political junkie by passion), Douglas seeks to promote both media and political literacy, while making politics accessible to everyone. In addition to blogging and podcasting, Douglas has dabbled in translation and event planning, is an accomplished entertainer having appeared in plays (My Three Angels; Cranz & Bernardo; And Then There Were None), musicals (Matilda, Naked Boys Singing, Chicago, Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert), and voice work (The Sound Castle; The Revolution has Failed; The Makers and Shakers Society). He is set to direct his first play, R.E.D., in the summer of 2022. Finally, he's an avid curler, a diehard tennis freak, an amateur cook who thinks love is the most important ingredient and that life is too short to cook without bacon, cream, butter, booze, or bold spices, and very much in love with his Beaver Sweetie of nearly 10 years.
