On today's episode, I talk to Leah Cameron, a television writer in Toronto. She is the creator, director and head writer of The Communist’s Daughter, a comedy series loosely based on her left-wing family in Toronto in 1989, now available on CBC Gem.
This is episode 14 of Sweater Weather with Aaron Giovannone.
Tom Wayman, professor emeritus at the University of Calgary and the author of over 20 books, reads his poem, “O Calgary.” It’s a beautiful work in which the city becomes symbolic of a value system and a way of life under capitalism.
"O Calgary" was published in Poetry, the world's most prestigious English-language poetry publication, and it appears in Wayman's recent book, Watching a Man Break a Dog's Back (Harbour Publishing).
