Thoughts from your host…


As much fun as I think it would be to talk about talking jungle creatures or the secret origins of The Evil Queen, neither one of them really felt like a great use of my last full podcast episode before Hot Docs coverage begins later this week. Instead, I thought this might be a good time to take stock of the project many of us are working on.

Thanks to the marvellous people over at womeninfilm.org, many of us have been spending 2016 soaking up 52 Films by Women.

Some of us are struggling with it, some are revelling, some are something in-between. All of it is worth discussing, so that’s what we’re doing this week

So please enjoy this break from the usual structure. Please consider looking into some of the titles and artists we bring up throughout the course of the next 75 minutes. And please enjoy all of the Prince I have dropped into the show for your listening pleasure.


Thanks for tuning into episode one-hundred-fifty-seven.
