WAM March 09-10 Mary Walsh - Woman of the Year

Actor, writer, director, social and political activist Mary Walsh will have to make more room on the mantelpiece. She's got to hang those doctorates on the wall and shunt aside some of her eighteen Gemini Awards to make room for this latest accolade. The National Women's Committee of the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists, ACTRA, acclaimed Mary as the 2013 Woman of the Year on Thursday evening. She speaks with host Mack Furlong.

WAM WAM Oct 13-14 Ben Cox Oct 17, 2012 | 9:04Benjamin Cox has lived through a lot of turmoil in his life... Much of it caused by his own behavior. From a promising career as an ER nurse, Cox turned to drugs. Even using his position to steal narcotics to keep his habit going. But Cox wasn't finished falling yet. He got caught. Benjamin Cox tells his story in a self-published book called "My Name is Ben and I'm and Addict". His book has sold out and now he's attracted a publisher. Cox stopped by our studio to tell me about his descent to the depths of drug addition... And the rude awakening that put him on the road to recovery.
