  3. Jeffrey Lee Campbell and his locker room presence2018/12/01
    For most aspiring rock stars, the prize is recording and touring, and having a loading dock to receive the mountains of cash being delivered to your home.
  4. Cliff Harris and Democracy 3, the game you can’t beat2016/12/02
    Democracy is a political simulation game you can't win. It's engaging and fun, and it reminds us that each political decision is like a flap of a butterfly's wings.
  5. Interview with Shawn MacDonell2012/12/01
    Shawn MacDonell ignored his guidance counsellor who was pointing high school students like sheep toward computer science degrees. Instead, he developed a program to teach children how to read. With baseballs.

  8. Surviving and thriving with Andrea Ross2010/05/02
    I’ve often heard people say they’re fighting or they’ve beaten cancer. It was a shift in my thinking when, after being diagnosed with breast cancer, my wife talked about healing and being a survivor. Six months, three surgeries and six rounds of chemotherapy later, I understand. Show ID and intro Interview with Andrea Ross You […]
  9. Interview with Dewitt Jones2009/08/24
    One of my favourite lessons taught by Dewitt Jones is to study your tools and how to use them so you can capture the extraordinary no matter which tool happens to be in your hand at the time. Â Dewitt knows this well. Â His extraordinary photographs have graced pages and covers of National Geographic magazine for […]
  10. Interview with Hugh Brewster2009/08/17
    A new all-ages book by historian and author, Hugh Brewster, explores the valour and determination of the Canadian forces as one problem after another stacked against them for the raid on German forces at Dieppe.

  11. The Leadership Summit 2009: Leaders and Followers2009/08/10
    We tend to be myopic when we face challenges — it’s much more comfortable to focus inwards. Leaders are no exception. So, when leaders talk about thinking out of the box, they should be first in line. This concept has been embraced by Bill Hybels who founded The Leadership Summit fifteen years ago.  While the […]
  12. Stephen Gritt on Art Restoration and Conservation2008/04/28

  13. Jennifer Barnaby and Cakes for a Cause2008/04/22
    During the annual Great Glebe Garage Sale (a huge community garage sale in Ottawa), my family stumbed on Jennifer Barnaby, a Cordon Bleu Chef who was serving baked goods she’d made while her husband, Jim, brewed up espresso and handled the transactions. Every single cent collected from the sales went directly to charity. They didn’t […]
  14. Brad Blanton and Radical Honesty2008/04/13
    I’ve wanted to produce a documentary on honesty for almost three years. In preparation, I gathered some street audio on honesty and dishonesty, definitions of the ideas and self-analysis (unfortunately, I seem to have misplaced some of this audio). I also conducted an incredibly insightful interview with Brad Blanton whose book Radical Honesty: How to […]
  15. Bracelets of Hope2008/04/06
    While in Perth, ON last August, I learned about Bracelets of Hope, an initiative to raise the money necessary to build a medical clinic for a Village of Hope in Harare, Zimbabwe — all by selling handmade bracelets. Even more impressive is that the initiative was dreamed up by a ten-year-old. I met with Carrie-Anne […]
  16. Whale Watching on the Jolly Breeze2008/01/20
    Our family vacation in August 2007 was a two-week, unplugged, extravaganza down the Fundy side of New Brunswick.

    Ottawa Valley Honey is one of the popular attractions at the Ottawa Farmers’ Market. Children and adults flock to this booth to study the section of beehive that is always a part of the display. I had the opportunity to interview Michael Kositsin, one of the beekeepers, about his amazing honey bees. Show ID and […]
  21. William Hawkins and connecting with people2007/06/04
    In the same way that many people figured Wayne Gretzky would always play hockey, I cannot imagine a time when William Hawkins, Bill, will no longer be driving his cab. And driving a cab is only one of the many lives he has led. Bill was part of the Ottawa music scene that centered around […]
  22. Tod Maffin made me do it2007/04/30
    I released my very first Podcast on April 29, 2005. Tod Maffin made me do it. That is to say, I heard him talk about podcasting during a technology segment on CBC Radio. That, combined with Brent Bambury’s announcement that he was leaving CBC Ottawa resulted in the launch of Electric Sky. Electric Sky led […]
  23. Alex Overwijk and the perfect freehand circle2007/04/08
    In many respects, Alex Overwijk reminds me of my own high school math teachers – passionate, a good sense of humour and a unexpected skill that everyone knows them for. Alex is an unlikely celebrity for a viral YouTube video of him drawing a perfect freehand circle. Show ID and Intro Interview with Alex Overwijk […]
  24. Scrabble Tournament for Multiple Sclerosis2007/03/27
    Since 2002, Pam Hunter has been organizing annual Scrabble tournaments to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis. I dropped in on this year’s event and learned that, like baseball, Scrabble is rich with strategy and language including speed games, board-vision, heavy tiles and “box scores”. Show ID and Intro Interviews with participants and event organizer, Pam […]
  25. Jeannie Hunter and the World Voices Choir2007/03/19
    Quite by chance, my family and I learned about the CD release party for The World Voices Choir, an event that took place just over a month ago. We made it a family event — that includes our two daughters ages five and seven. It was an amazing and inspirational experience, and it raised money […]
  26. June Creelman on creating museum exhibits2007/02/12
    On a recent visit to the Canadian Museum of Nature, we were polled for our opinions on a proposed exhibit on water. A display of four concepts were on display for public comment.

  28. Canadian Coast Guard Commissioner George Da Pont2007/01/22

  30. Stephen Hardiman on storytelling as a business tool2006/12/05
    During a recent conversation about social media, my friend, Stephen Hardiman, started to talk about storytelling as a business tool. It was one of those times when I cut people off and tell them to save it for when the tape is rolling. Since Stephen has a radio background – he hosted Expert Radio, a […]
  31. Experiencing a Shuttle Launch2006/11/27
    As a gift for his fiftieth birthday, Suzanne Roy-Seguin helped her husband, Yves Seguin, realize his dream of experiencing the launch of a Space Shuttle.

  35. Thomas Grande on Qui Tam2006/10/09

  37. Red Fridays2006/09/25
    It’s a simple idea: wear red on Fridays to show support for the troops and families of the Canadian military. It’s not about politics or ideology. It’s about people.

  43. The Bookies2006/08/06
    While on vacation in Denver a few weeks ago, someone suggested to my wife and me that we check out a great, independent book store that specializes in children’s books and resources for teachers.

  45. Preserving Aviation History2006/06/17
