This episode of @4 is all about the 3rd annual IPP Expo at the Red River College Princess Street campus. Rob Mahon hosted and interviewed Noelle Vong, coordinator of the IPP Expo, Nolan Kowal was among the students doing live interviews, Alicia Kondrat spoke to Joy Balmana, founder of StreamWPG, and Christina Hyrniuk conducted a live segment of her political satire show, Christina’s Arena. We also had our own Lexi Myers on our rant segment, One-way radio, talking about the proper definition of feminism.
After taking a week off, @4 is back with a bang. Lexi Myers hosted the hour and had Trenton Burton, a local musician, come on the show to talk about his new debut album, Six to Twenty-one, which focusses on his struggle growing up with mental illness. Rob Mahon presented his feature on the PortageTerriors, Christina Hyrniuk rants about refugees illegally coming into Manitoba from the United States, and Nolan Kowal interviews the fifth for Team Englot, Krysten Karwacki, about her silver medal win in the Scotties Tournament of Hearts.

Written by your host Spencer Myers (@spennymy9 on Twitter.) Not all news or topics are happy, and unfortunately this isn’t a sunny tale about the beginning of winter. An epidemic is creeping across Canada and we need to act now before it’s too late. The Fentanyl crisis sweeping across Canada is no stranger to the prairies. The drug recently leading to many overdoses and deaths is becoming more and more common in synthetic drugs on Winnipeg’s streets. Students need to be safe, and extra careful during this crisis. I call it a crisis because that’s what it is. People are […]
Okay, so I don’t know about you guys, but when I was growing up we had totally legitimate (not) free-to-air satellite TV. So I watched a whole bunch of Disney Channel growing up. One of my favourite things on Disney was the “Hi I’m someone, and you’re watching the Disney Channel” indents. Even if you didn’t have Disney Channel, you probably still know what I’m talking about. Now, thanks to the magic of the internet, behind-the-scenes footage of the indent’s being made have popped up online, and these videos are pretty great. This one has Raven-Symoné looking agitated after having […]

The latest version of Raspberry Pi, “Zero”, hit the shelves recently and completely sold out within 24 hours. What the heck is that, you might be wondering? It sounds delicious! Well, it’s deliciously cool. It’s a teeny tiny single-board computer, the size of a stick of gum. And the most amazing part: it only costs $5! So what can it do, and why do people want them so bad? Basically, people are using these little computers for cool DIY projects that require small, less-powerful computers. Some projects require additional supplies besides the Pi, but that totally depends on what you […]
