Robbie Robertson

This past week saw all sorts of adventures on George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight. Rocker Robbie Robertson took us to the juke joints and old time bars, Malcolm Gladwell made us think about underdogs, Scott Russell got us psyched for sports and Helen Fielding gave us insight into the world of Bridget Jones.

On top of all that Randi Zuckerberg got us thinking about our relationship with the internet and how we use it. And to top it all off we revisited a classic interview with funnyperson Carol Burnett.
