Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Lawrence Scanlan, Christina Nikolic, Janine Bandcroft Sept. 27, 2010

This week: Lawrence Scanlan is an Ontario-based journalist and the author of numerous books, most with an equine theme, including: ‘The Big Red Horse,’ Horses Forever,’ ‘Wild About Horses: Our Timeless Passion for the Horse,’ and the best-seller, co-authored with Monty Roberts, ‘The Man Who Listens to Horses.’ Scanlan’s latest book is, ‘A Year of Living Generously: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Philanthropy.’ Lawrence Scanlan in the first half.

Christina Nikolic has made a home for herself in Canada since arriving here from Germany in 1999. She’s an organic horticultural entrepreneur, passionate about soil and bugs, and serves as a director on the board of the non-profit Society for Organic Urban Land Care, or SOUL. A decade of traveling back and forth has sharpened Christina’s eye to changes in both countries, and blurred the distinction between the two places she calls “home”. In recent weeks, she’s followed the hot button migration issue in both Germany and Canada. Christina Nikolic on what it means to integrate from two perspectives in the second half.

And; Victoria Street Newz publisher and CFUV broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft will be here to bring us the newz from Victoria’s dynamic street community and beyond at the bottom of the hour. But first, Lawrence Scanlan and ‘A Year of Living Generously.’
