STU Journalism presents: Winter Fun & Beer Culture!
Today, it is suggested that we take two contradictory ideas and put them together: do things for others, and do them for ourselves as well. Pick some things that you want to do, and do them. Then pick a few things you can do for others, and do those. Assert yourself, but remember others. Act
What did you overlook today?

The series of programs produced by the students of STU Journalism continues! This week, Joseph Tunney and Sean McCullum bring us a discussion of our increasing reliance and integration of technology in a piece called “Cyborgs” for the first half, and in the second half they assure you, somebody is watching you, but challenge you
I love drama: on-stage, on audio, on the radio, in a book. But what about crossing these forms? The Next Folding Theatre Company prides itself on pushing boundaries and trying new things, as well as giving new playwrights a chance to get their work produced. My guest today is Brandon Hicks, the producer of the upcoming
There’s no denying that fossil fuels play a big part of just about everybody’s life — but it is too big a part? There is a growing movement to stop supporting the fossil fuel industry, at the very least until the industry cleans up its act, but also to promote alternative fuels. My guests today are

Where do you keep your stories? Most people would point to something written down, journals or diaries or books, but I suspect that where your stories are really kept are in two, connected places: your head, and your things. Look around you: there are likely things that tell your stories in any place you inhabit
STU Journalism presents: The STU Lunchbox! Tune in every Wednesday at noon for a pair of documentary features presented by STU Journalism students. This one: Emma Chapel presents a discussion and debate on the moral conundrum of “cultural appropriation”: what does it imply? Where does it happen? Is it bad, good or something else? And Oscar
There’s “making stuff up as you go”, and then there is improvisation… The first doesn’t take talent, necessarily, and the results are often just random; the latter, however, can take a lot of talent and practice to make something so spontaneously beautiful.. My guest today is Sarah Beth Shiplett of Music UNB and Music on the Hill.
Do you ever wonder: can I climb that? Some people love a physical challenge like climbing a wall, or scaling a mountain.

What would you do to relive some memories of times and people gone past? Today’s show deals with memories… Up first, Kaylee Stevens has just started working with the Charlotte Street Arts Centre, but she hits the ground running as the CSAC celebrates it’s 10th year! We talk about the historic perspective of the building (celebrating
Ultimately, don’t we all just want to get along? Of course, what that actually looks like is what all the fuss is really about. We want to be fair, but not give away the farm. We want to have our rights, but not when overburden the system. We need to negotiate these things, and do it
Good art engages the mind — so does a good game! … and every once and a while, you should probably step back from the Internet.. Two guests today, both presenting you with very interesting opportunities to have fun in this city. My first guest, Travis Grant, is the co-founder of the soon-to-be-open board game

When you hear about a musician, what do you think? Do you think, “They play an instrument, either solo or in a band, in a particular genre?”? Because that would be only true in a few cases, if my experience is anything to go by! Most of the musicians I’ve met — admittedly, from the
It’s almost time again for the return of ENBICON! This time, you didn’t have to wait 25 years for its return. Just one year after that momentous return, it is now an annual event, thanks to the great team of people and enthusiasm from all involved. I spoke with Julian Christie, one of the co-founders
On the surface, art and business seem entirely at odds.. Art, one might suggest, is about chaos, but business is about order. But the world is made up of both parts, and sometimes it’s necessary to mix them. My guests today are Gary Belding (independent accountant/consultant) and Joss Richer (ArtsNB). They have a new workshop coming up Wednesday, 4
What does the university experience mean to you? To most, it’s much more than just academics; it’s also about finding out about yourself, trying new things, and finding new friends. But how do you find new people? One solution is to join a club or a society, much like a “Greek Letter Society”, one referred to

Sometimes it feels like there are a million more things to do every day. Maybe it’s social media, maybe it’s the weather, maybe it’s just a way of modern life. Whatever it is, it can feel like herding cats: an impossible task that you just do anyway, because you have to. Today’s a day to celebrate
What’s it take for you to get up and really move? Are you looking for an exercise which is really just a fun activity? Swing dance is amazing. It’s energetic, fun and social. It’s a gas, man, a real jive mood. I had the chance to speak to Kelsey and Nicole, two of the members of
