Talking Radicalized on CBC's Day 6, with Tim Maughan, author of Infinite Detail

This morning, CBC's flagship weekend programme Day Six aired its latest episode (MP3), a conversation between host Brent Bambury, me, and Tim Maughan, the author of an outstanding debut novel called Infinite Detail. (Image: Jason Vermes/CBC) It's often said that sci-fi's role is to project the future, but Doctorow is skeptical of that perspective. "What we're doing is kidding ourselves that we're projecting a future; I think that at best, we're reflecting the present," he told Bambury. "...

Original Content podcast: ‘Shrill’ stays positive, despite bad boyfriends and terrible bosses

Many of the themes and stories found in Hulu’s “Shrill” will be familiar to fans of writer Lindy West — after all, it’s based on her book “Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman,” and she’s a writer on the series. But “Shrill” has mined the autobiographical material in West’s book to tell a fictionalized story about a young journalist played by Aidy Bryant of “Saturday Night Live” (she also co-wrote the first two episodes). When we meet Annie, she’s ignored or belittled by everyone — a random yoga i...
