Midweek January 29, 2020 — A new team!

Midweek’s back for 2020 with a new crew and stories on mourning, cold streets and the urgent shortage of decent, affordable housing — but also about people rescuing refugees, pushing giant corporations to be fair, and calling for calm and tolerance in the face of worries about the coronavirus. Oh — and dogs. There will also be dogs. Give it a listen!

Midweek November 27, 2019 — Season Finale!

The final show of this season goes out in style: We visit a curated nest in Hintonburg, a musical about menopause, and music program for those with dementia and their companions — plus lots more about struggles, achievements and helping hands. That’s what a Midweek is, after all! See you again in 2020!
