Nuclear energy, an issue rife with passionate debate since its inception is still brought up today in many circles as the best alternative to dirty fossil fuel if indeed we much change. But is nuclear the holy grail of free safe and clean energy its purported to be? Dr. Gordon Edwards, head of the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility joins us for the first half of the program to talk about this and many other pressing issues in the first half of the program.

After the break we discuss a new documentary/game/social-experiment launched at this years Planet in Focus Film Festival in Toronto, and sponsored by the NFB called Fort McMoney.

Fort McMoney is very much worth checking out, and we will be doing an interview soon while the game is still running for only a couple more weeks!

Calling it a game is actually probably a misnomer, it is very much just an interactive documentary with some other elements added that you can easily skip by and still get a rich experience (no “game components” will prevent you from watching the documentary part).

Please do let us know what you think ahead of that interview by checking it out here and tweeting us your thoughts! (or on this post)

This Weeks Music:  Brought to you by DJ Amber Waves at Open til’ Midnight:

 As December arrives and the holidays creep up on us, an early gift has fallen into my ears.  Markham band Future History have released a follow-up to their critically acclaimed and TIMA-nominated album, Loss:/self.  An 8-track odyssey from a place of recognizing that the self is lost in all ways, Lungs breathes life back into a broken spirit.  

Who needs endless Christmas carols (seriously, 98.1 CHFI)?  I have a better collection of uplifting music.  

Take a listen to the psychedelic indie rock of Future History’s latest on songs “Pavlovian” and “The Strangest” and if you like what you hear, grab your own copy from Bandcamp for a rather reasonable price.
