A recent Toronto Star article labels environmentalist James Lovelock as "anti-people" because of his assertion that the exploding global population means certain doom for planet earth. His new book, The Vanishing Face of Gaia: A Final Warning, Lovelock explores this concept and how mankind's wreckless abandon may be the final nail in the Earth's coffin.

What's your poker face like? Think you'd have what it takes to take on some of the best poker players in the world? Well, at 21 Daniel Negreanu thought he did when he packed up and moved from Toronto to Las Vegas to try his luck. The first trip down there wasn't exactly successful, but he didn't give up and now he's the proud titleholder of 2 World Poker Tour Championships and 4 World Series of Poker bracelets.

There comes a point in everyone's life where they just have to take a stand and balk at the status quo. Until a couple months ago, Jeff Rubin was the very successful chief economist and chief strategist at CIBC World Markets with a solid twenty year career behind him. But that all changed when he decided to publish his book Why Your World is About to Get a Whole Lot Smaller, a look into the socio-economic impact of rising energy costs, which forced him to leave CIBC and his old career behind.

Appearing in popular films like Wedding Crashers and popular television shows like Nip/Tuck, Bradley Cooper has carved himself a niche in Hollywood. His latest film is the comedy titled The Hangover, and there are rumours swirling around his taking a role in the remake of "The A-Team" and him taking the role of The Green Lantern.

Founder of the Canadian Film Centre, Norman Jewison is one of a handful of renowned Canadian film directors and producers that Canadians can actually name off the top of their heads. He was recently awarded The National Arts Clubs' Medal of Honour for Film in New York City.

Broadcast legend Larry King was in Toronto last Friday for the only Canadian stop on his book tour promoting his biography My Remarkable Journey. Larry King sat down with George in The Hour studios on Friday. Even if you're not a Larry King fan, make sure you tune in to this interview, it's one of George's best.
Also on the show is musician Steve Earle. His latest CD, Townes, celebrates the songs of Earle's friend and inspiration Townes Van Zandt.

If you're in the Toronto area over the next three weeks, there is still time to pick up tickets to attend a taping of The Hour. Check out The Hour's ticket page for available dates.

I'm so excited about Norman Jewison appearing on The Hour. He is a great filmmaker and he just happens to live in the same small town as I do. :) Yay Mr. Jewison!

Hello - does anyone know if there is another way to listen to tonights Strombo show?

My connection went belly up and I missed the last half.

One tip about listening to the Strombo Show is The Fox in Vancouver begins the show 6pm (in BC)... So find the fox in Vancouver if you are late listening and you can listen online then.

Thanks Barbara. Ruling out driving around for three hours, I think I will invest in an actual radio.

Barbara said...

I have more radios at home than TV' works well for that too. So much radio you can listen to online. God bless 'em.

Man, it was all I could do not to end it after listening to Dr. Sunshine on Monday. We're totally doomed. Excellent. Would you like to Chair phase 2 of One Million Acts of Green? Yikes. Pardon me while I breathe into a paper bag.
