Part One

Microcephaly family
A Kansas woman whose two children have microcephaly is offering support to families affected by the Zika virus. 

Oregon standoff: Bundy/Reporter
Cliven Bundy — whose sons led the occupation of the Oregon wildlife refuge — tells us that the video shows "Lavoy" Finicum was deliberately assassinated. But a local journalist sees things differently.  

Newfoundland accordion
A break-up is tough, when it's your main squeeze. Especially when your main squeeze is an accordion, and — as legendary Newfoundland musician Eddie Coffey explains — it breaks in two when it falls on the floor.

Part Two

Ghomeshi trial
Day two of the Jian Ghomeshi trial finds the defence once again exposing apparent contradictions in the first complainant's testimony. 

Oregon judge
An Oregon commission wants Judge Vance Day to hand in his gavel — citing a string of misdeeds ranging from the bizarre to the potentially criminal. 

Part Three

Cold FX
The makers of Cold FX say it reduces cold and flu symptoms — but a previously unpublished study says a placebo works just as well, or better. 

Animal barn fires
When a barn fire killed dozens of racehorses in Ontario, it was national news. But since then, other fires have killed thousands of other animals — goats, pigs, and cows. Our guest says that's not sinister — but that doesn't make it less devastating. 

Owl attack
A night of cross country skiing turns violent when an Alberta man is attacked by an owl twice. Now, Miloslav Bozdech has got more than a dozen puncture wounds on his head to prove it.
