LeVar Burton on the value of stories and storytelling
When it comes to storytelling, one person reigns supreme: LeVar Burton. For years, Burton helped parents raise their children by sharing stories as the host of Reading Rainbow. The show encouraged a whole generation of young people to get out to the library and escape inside a good book.
Today, Burton is still telling stories on his own podcast LeVar Burton Reads. His mission is to get adults to take some time to enjoy a good story and listen to the ones he'll share through your headphones.
Burton joins Tom Power live in the q studio to tell us more about his latest project. He's in Toronto for the Hot Docs Podcast Festival where he'll be taking the stage tonight.
