Monday, March 16th
To some, he's a hero... beating the man and living his own life. To others, the numbers just don't add up. Derek Foster is the author of Stop Working: Here's How You Can, a guide detailing how he left the Canadian workforce at 36 to become "Canada's Youngest Retiree". Foster has also written two other books: The Lazy Investor and Money for Nothing: And Stocks for Free!

Rich Terfry originally started as a radio announcer on CBC-3 and then moved over to CBC-2 after the radical programming changes were announced last year (you'll probably remember the protests). Terfry is also an acclaimed hip hop artist, performing under the name Buck 65 with an amazing 17 albums under his belt.

Kevin Gaudet heads up the Canadian Taxpayer Federation, a non-partisan, non-profit advocacy group dedicated to lowering taxes and holding the government accountable for its actions.
Ivan Reitman is currently in Toronto shooting his latest feature film Chloe. Toronto's film industry has recently seen an upswing in production after a dismal year. Directed by Atom Agoyan and starring Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore, Chloe is slated for release later this year.

Wednesday, March 18th
Before Being Erica, Erin Karpluk played a variety of roles in Canada and the States on The L Word, Godiva and the particularly questionable made-for-TV Movie 10.5. Being Erica airs on the CBC, Wednesdays at 9.
As the author of Real Estate Investing in Canada and the director of the Real Estate Investment Network, Don R. Campbell has the following saying as the foundation for his business: "You can have anything you want in life... just help enough other people get what they want". Through his book and seminars, Campbell helps Canadians find their way to financial independence.

Thursday, March 19th
Revered Canadian writer Margaret Atwood's latest book Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth doesn't deal with the current financial crisis... it deals with one of the major underlying causes of it. The book is the printed copy of the 5 speeches Atwood presented on CBC radio last year. In the book she takes on how debt has integrated itself into societal culture and customs.
As a profession of Bioethics at Princeton University, Peter Singer, published the book Animal Liberation in 1975 which is considered by some to be the basis of the animal liberation movement as we know it today. His latest book, The Life You Can Save, takes on a different perspective, that global poverty would be easy to erradicate if we just follow a few basic principles that anyone can do, even in these hard economic times.

Friday, March 20th
It's a 'Best Of' show featuring actors Paul Rudd and Jason Segal and Canadian Rock Band Nickleback.

Have a great week!
