It was all hands on deck this week as Ryan was joined by editors Yasmin and Chris for a packed show. The crew started things up with a chat with local author Catherine Brunelle, who is among the first Canadians to join the Kickstarter revolution as she raises money for her new book, The Adventures of Claire Never-Ending. She's since obliterated her $3,000 goal, and you can get the full story here.
Next, we were joined by Meghan Smith, Creative Director and Curator of this year's Nuit Blanche. Megan told us all about this year's all-night art party, which has been greatly expanded for this year. New neighbourhoods include Downtown Gatineau, Sparks Street, Downtown Rideau. It all kicks off on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 6:21 pm, but in the meantime, listen to the interview below.
Finally, Katie called in to chat about this year's edition of Hood Wars. Things kicked off this week with a poll on Ottawa's favourite neighbourhood restaurant row, and early indications say that Hintonburg is way out in front.
