Dumped by the CBC!

Just got a phone call from a producer at The Gill Deacon Show. Everyone there was delighted with the interview I did yesterday on the suburbs, but after the show was in the can someone higher up the food chain at the CBC looked at the program and decided that it had too many men on it. Gill’s show is aimed at housewives, in this person’s estimation, and so the guests should be the same. They recorded a new segment responding to the film Radiant City today with three suburban housewives, and that’s what will air in place of me talking to the two filmmakers tomorrow.

I must say, the producer I was dealing with at the CBC was a total pro about this, and they’re sending me a cheque to compensate me for my time, so that’s nice.
