IT’S TOO LATE FOR PESSIMISM...

In the fight against climate change!

The indefatigable Sarah Lazarovic has been a journalist, editorial cartoonist and  author. Her book, A Bunch of Pretty Things I Did Not Buy, is a lively tale of her fight against overconsumption, including going one whole year without  buying a single piece of clothing.  And her regular  newsletter, Minimal Viable Planet, which she describes as an undepressing newsletter about how to fight climate change is irreverent, funny and very insightful. She is a much needed breath of fresh air.

SKELETONS OUT OF THE CLOSET

In this month’s podcast we chat with Ben Lovatt, owner of the Skull Store and Prehistoria Museum

He proudly calls his museum the worlds weirdest recycling centre and Canada’s biggest oddity shop. When you see what Ben has on display, you will quickly surmise that “odd” barely scratches the surface.

For the past decade, Sgt. Derrick Gaudet has always referred to his police dog in the K9 unit as his partner. And why wouldn’t he? His four-legged companion, Major, has played a vital role in solving numerous complex crimes in Canada. It was Major after all who, on a cold winter’s day, found the remains of the bodies that were hidden in planters by serial killer Bruce McArthur. 

Derrick talks about their exceptional career together and the challenges of taking care of Major now that they have both retired.

Retired RCMP officer, Stacey Talbot talks about Ned's Wish foundation, which helps cover the substantial medical bills for retired police dogs.
