Q - Paralympic Snowboarder Tyler Mosher in Studio QJan 29, 2014 | 11:31Q Paralympic Snowboarder Tyler Mosher in Studio Q Video
Q Paralympic Snowboarder Tyler Mosher in Studio Q Jan 29, 2014 | 11:31Tyler Mosher may be great at swerving down the slopes, but the parasnowboader has conquered incredible uphill battles, too. On Dec 30, it will be 13 years since Mosher tumbled down a 10 metre drop while snowboarding, broke his back in 9 places, and became paralyzed below the waist. A decade later, he had not only re-learned how to walk (something doctors told him he would never again do) but had also returned to winter sports as a cross-country skier. Then he defied the odds again by helping convince the Paralympic committee to include adaptive snowboarding on their roster. These days, he's training to represent Canada in the first ever Paralympic parasnowboarding competition. The strong-spirited athlete joins Jian to discuss his determination to overcome adversity and how he's gearing up for Sochi.

Q Clara Hughes and Adam van Koeverden in Studio Q Jan 27, 2014 | 12:35It's no coincidence that most athletes spout well-worn clichés about their 'A' game and being "in it to win it". On top of their physical training, most get media training -- and as veteran catcher Crash Davis says in the movie Bull Durham, "'course it's boring. That's the point." What are the odds that the Olympic games in Sochi will be any different? Will they comment on the political climate in Russia or off-court personal struggles? Veteran Olympians Clara Hughes & Adam van Koeverden join Jian for a special Olympic panel on the subject.

Q The Pixies' David, Joey and Black in Studio Q Jan 24, 2014 | 22:29Pixies know they can pack venues with their time-honoured tunes alone. Albums like Come On Pilgrim, Surfer Rosa, and Doolittle made them a mainstay in the mid-1980s, and brought fans back out in droves when they reunited in 2004. But Boston's alternative trailblazers weren't satisfied resting on their laurels. This last year saw the release of their first new music in 20 years, but also the departure of founding bass player Kim Deal. Pixies join Jian to talk about forging ahead without their longtime bandmate, why they don't want to be a so-called nostalgia band, and the dynamism that bridges the decades.

Q Hockey Legend Bobby Orr in Studio Q Jan 20, 2014 | 23:25In the first live interview about his new memoir, hockey legend Bobby Orr joins Jian to discuss the highlights and struggles of his remarkable career. Orr -- whose book Orr: My Story hits bookshelves today -- is more that the greatest defenseman in hockey history. The Ontario-born player virtually reinvented the game, and became a sports legend in the process. In his 10 seasons with the Boston Bruins, he won every top NHL honour imaginable - including rookie of the year, top defenseman eight times, league MVP three times, top point leader twice and, of course, two Stanley Cups. In a rare and wide-ranging interview, Orr reflects on why he avoided the media coverage of his career, whether there's still room for creativity in today's highly-structured game, and why those training the next generation of hockey players must make sure they're having fun.
