The Exchange: Week 8 Preview

The finish line is within distance as the school year creeps toward the end. But while we are still here, we’ve got a heck of a radio show lined up for you this week in The Exchange.

Taylor Peristy is leading the charge as your host this week and will have an in-depth interview with Robert Elms from AssentWorks, discussing the latest going on at the place of innovation. Stay tuned!

Emily Enns will have a report on this past weekend’s Winnipeg Humane Society telethon that raised $40,000.

Kanisha Szekely will be reporting live from the 1187 Photos – Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women Art Exhibit.

The exhibit features, you guessed it, 1187 photos – one for each missing and murdered Aboriginal woman and girls in Canada. An Aboriginal feminist artist’s visceral response to this tide of violence. Five-hundred-plus pieces of clothing painted with wax to create wounds. These were photographed in 1181 mock crime scenes.

Evan Matthews will drop the mic, ranting about little known Winnipeg developer Anthony Panchoo and his proposal to build a massive, multi-billion dollar theme park in the city. Some are calling it the biggest and boldest development in the city’s history. Evan will share his thoughts on the Mic Drop.

Danielle Doiron will join us in Overtime to talk sports, including the high school basketball provincials, Winnipeg Jets, March Madness and anything else that pops up.

As always, The Exchange is on Red River Radio Tuesday afternoon at 1 p.m. It’s easy – tune in here.
