The audio for some/all of these items will be available immediately after the show in a re-posted version of the programme entry for this day and date

0730 Everyone seems to wish for a "white" Christmas...but Gill Deacon is an advocate for a "green" holiday season. Gill is the author of "There's Lead In Your Lipstick" and "Green For Life". She dropped by the studio to tell guest host Karen Gordon how to make your festive season more environmentally correct...without losing that holiday feeling.
There's always plenty of green conversation at Gill's Green For Life website.

0800 It's the little cidery that could. It's called Spirit Tree Cidery. And you'll find it in the Caledon Hills, north of Brampton. That's where co-owners Nicole Judge and Tom Wilson are creating a wide range of "hard" ciders that pay heritage to the origins of this heritage beverage. They elaborated when they talked with Karen.
Learn more about what's on offer at the Cidery by visiting the Spirit Tree Cidery website

0830 The big day is almost here...and that means plenty of time in the kitchen preparing Christmas dinner. Karen asked two experienced foodies---Marion Kane and Mairlyn Smith--to offer some basic advice on dealing with the challenges of that major meal.
Marion Kane is a self-described "Food Sleuth", writer and broadcaster. Her latest book is "Share: Delicious Dishes from Foodshare and Friends". Proceeds from the sales of the book feed back into FoodShare's program.
Mairlyn Smith is a writer, broadcaster and home economist. Her latest book is
The Vegetarian's Complete Quinoa Cookbook".
You'll find plenty of specifics about all the foods mentioned in their conversation with Karen at Marion and Mairlyn's websites.
