Where is the art in your community? Well, it might just be in your community! My guests today represent the integration between these things, the idea that art is not separate from community, but rather thrives within it. Eddie Young operates the Roots & Soul Music Room venue out of his living room. He’s crowdfunding to buy
Today is Banana Bread Day. I gave a few of my memories about the day on the show, but how about another alternate approach? Let’s talk about world commerce for a second. If you have bananas, where did they come from? Where were they grown? How did they make it to you? Isn’t it amazing
We throw out too much stuff. Technology is a wonderful thing, and the pace of invention is incredible, but it has a dark side: waste. A phone bought brand new today may only have a useable lifetime of a few years. A desktop computer might be obsolete in 5 years, and your TV is reinvented every year.
Art moves us.. Sarah Beth Shiplett informs us about musical performances, Andre Sampson tells us about 20-minute art.
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?
When you went about your business, did you take the time to really notice the world you moved through? Or did you let it all become a blurry background, falling mentally unaware after leaving home and waking up suddenly, finding yourself at work or at school?
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
It’s the eve of the third Frostival weekend, so lots of events to look forward to! And Winterfesthiver gives you even more reason to go outside and turn the snow from restriction to opportunity!

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
