The Wild Side is coming to CBC Radio One this summer!

This is show is all about your adventures in the Canadian wilderness and beyond. The Wild Side is hosted by yours truly, Grant Lawrence. Some of you may know me from my work at CBC Radio 3.

This summer you can expect to hear stories from adventurers, trekkers, and travelers who have ventured to mountain peak and valley bottom, to white water rapids and exploding volcanoes. You'll also hear stories of wild animal encounters that will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck.

We'd love to hear your wilderness adventure stories, so don't hestitate to call our Wild Side Story Line at 1-866-630-3686 or email me directly thewildside at
