Core Connections include a bike commute


It's been many years since I have used a bicycle to get around on a regular basis, but that's changing as I incorporate cycling into my daily commute from the Fraser Valley to Vancouver.  Come along for the ride. Yes, that's a microphone (with duct tape to reduce wind noise) used to record my commute for our June 19th broadcast. Have a listen on our podcast.

Core Connections

As our communities become more densely populated, as we become more sophisticated in our understanding of the need for proper nutrition and exercise, and as technology improves to connect us so quickly, there's a parallel irony emerging. Many people feel more disconnected than ever. From friends, family and nature. We'll bring you a special Core Connections series starting Monday on B.C. Almanac that will examine personal and public initiatives to try and understand -- and address this unhealthy trend. Thanks to listener Susan Camilleri Konar for sharing this cartoon she did for the Wall Street Journal. It speaks volumes.

Grizzly inspiration

Nature photographer Brad Hill is just back from the Khutzeymateen where he was photographing grizzly bears in this rich estuary on the North Coast, north of Prince Rupert. Brad will be joining us again to talk photography on July 6th, but I couldn't wait that long to share one of his stunning images. More of Brad's photos here.
