Mad Scientist!

Katie Gibbs is a mad scientist, but put away your pitchforks! She’s on our side. Katie coordinates the group Death of Evidence and its most recent incarnation Science Uncensored. We discuss the track record of the government and of its muzzled Canadian scientists. In the second half we talk to Alan Ackerman about a proposal he and so far 3500 other Toronto residents want to stop… paving and nylon turfing the back UofT campus field! (20 feet outside the building where we do our show). As always Kevin Farmer jumps in between features to discuss this weeks top news items.

Gordie Wornoff – Host of Junk Raiders on Discovery Channel! (I said TVO for some reason on air, sorry Gordie!) Not that TVO isn’t great too!
