Canadian geneticist and broadcaster David Suzuki talks about bringing science into our living rooms for more than 40 years, and shares why he's not interested in slowing down yet. Our books columnist Jael Richardson fills us in on Kaitlyn Greenidge's historical fiction novel, Libertie, which is inspired by the life of the first Black female doctor in New York state. Composer Kris Bowers — the musical mastermind behind the scores for Green Book, When They See Us and Bridgerton — talks about self-doubt and his new short film, A Concerto is a Conversation. Right on the heels of his appointment to the Order of Canada, Canadian punk rocker Art Bergmann discusses his new album, Late Stage Empire Dementia, which sees him explore heavy topics like climate catastrophe, fascism and police killings.
