when did the cbc get ‘cool’? seems like cbc personnel and podcasts are the hottest things since lululemon pants in vancouver lately. not saying that it’s necessarily a bad thing – in fact john and i are jumpin on board this sunday since i’ve got us two ‘tickets’ to CBC Studio One Book Club
‘s ‘Dr. David Suzuki with David Suzuki: The Autobiography
David Suzuki is an acclaimed geneticist and environmentalist, the host of CBCâ€™s The Nature of Things, the founder and chair of the David Suzuki Foundation, and the author of more than forty books.
For those of you not familiar with David Suzuki (and if you’re Canadian then shame on you!) check out the David Suzuki Foundation
or for a general overview you could just Wiki him
. It’ll be pretty cool to interact with this nominated ‘Greatest Canadian
‘. His story is interesting, growing up as a japanese-canadian after the war, doing everything from teaching at UBC, to hosting his own television show
. Tune into the CBC at the following broadcast times to hear what we’ll be experiencing in person on Sunday.
The Book Club will be broadcast on North by Northwest, between 8 and 9 a.m., in two parts, on CBC Radio 690 AM in Vancouver:
Part One on Saturday May 27
Part Two on Sunday May 28
EDIT: Re: Wyn’s comment – it looks like (per Tod Maffin’s site
) that the CBC has just launched a bushel of podcasts. I’m not sure this particular program will be podcasted – but check out www.cbc.ca/podcasting/
