We’re baaaaaack. Did ya miss us?

Episode 5 of The Exchange has already come and gone, but you can check it out right here!

Last week, Connor Wild powered through a cold to rock it as our host, while Jason Dueck kicked off the hour with the day’s local, national and international headlines.

Jordan Haslbeck called in live from Lockport at 5:55 to give you this year’s provincial flood forecast – and it’s looking good.

Host-extraoridinaire Connor interviewed Sam d’Auteuil, a University of Manitoba engineering student, about what hydrokinetic turbines mean for the future of renewable energy and electrical needs. Don’t worry – he breaks it down so everyone can understand at 10:35.

Evan Matthews explores the intricacies and controversies of our justice system at 20:15. He shares the true story of “Joseph,” a 23-year-old who says he’s still suffering financially after he was charged with drug trafficking and benefitting from the proceeds of crime.

Over on the lighter side: Do you like, heart, “wow” or angry face this change? Erin DeBooy breaks down her thoughts on Facebook’s new “like” options in the Mic Drop at 26:30.

On the Group Chat, Taylor Peristy visits role playing – no, not that kind! He talks Dungeons & Dragons and the new Open Gaming License with player Ryland Heidebrecht and A Muse N Games co-owner Brian Mitchell at 30:00. 

Finally, in Overtime, Kanisha Szekely asks TSN 1290’s Darrin Bauming about what the Andrew Ladd trade means for the Winnipeg Jets at 46:25.

Give us a listen, and if you still can’t get enough, tune in to The Exchange next Tuesday at 1 p.m. Emily Enns is taking over as host, so you know it’s going to be great.

Props to Samantha Samson, last week’s social media guru, and Scott Billeck, everyone’s favourite board op.
