Olympic Edition ~ Week 2

Week one done, one week to go. Have you been watching the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics? There have been so many AMAZING moments...for me, none as exciting or emotional than the victory of moguls master Alexandre Bilodeau, the first Canadian Olympian to win a gold medal on home soil! Fingers crossed that perhaps Bilodeau will be a future guest on The Hour.

Don't forget to tune into The Strombo Show tonight on CBC Radio 2 for the ALL REQUEST SHOW. To contact the show, one can be all futuristic and Skype (username: Stromboshow) or call in the old-fashioned way via telephone: 416-205-6226.

As a lover of history, I am quite eager to watch the new six part CBC documentary Love Hate & Propaganda, starting March 4. The series, narrated by George Stroumboulopoulos, examines the role propaganda played in WWII. Regarding this project, CBC's Director of Documentary Programming Mark Starowicz said, "This is a series that needed to be done. It's time to bring this story to a new generation, to the children and grandchildren of those who fought the War. The dictators are dead, but the ideas and the forces that spawned them are still alive in the present." Follow the documentary on Facebook and Twitter...AND BE SURE TO WATCH!
