From Yellowknife, an academic hide tanning... we head to a bush university in the North West Territories where students are learning about politics... from moosehide.... and it's not as much of a stretch as you might think.

From St. John's... They're not switching gears. We'll hear about two cyclists heading off to do the Tour de France the old fashioned way... with single speed bicycles!
