Schedule for Oct. 29, 2014

Oct29-620

Piya Chattopadhyay guest hosts. All schedules are subject to last minute changes, so please check back for updates. Here's what we have on tap today: 
 

  • Piya speaks to documentary filmmaker Whitney Dow about his latest endeavour: The Whiteness Project. It's a multi-platform project that asks white people to confront their own racial identity and explore what being white really means.
     
  • Irish soul/gospel singer Hozier stops by Studio Q in the midst of a rapid rise at home and on this side of the pond. Piya speaks to him about the past year, his new record and the politics behind his mega single Take Me To Church.
     
  • Piya's conversation with journalist Alexander Huls. He argues that "death at the movies has died," and it's partly thanks to the rising influence of comic books on Hollywood blockbusters such as the forthcoming Avengers 2 and Batman vs. Superman.
