In a similar spirit, this week on Apt613 Live you can catch my discussion with Chris Osler, Trevor Haché and Suneeta Millington: three organizers behind this Thursday’s FREE screening of The Human Scale over at the Bytowne.

Hey kids! This week on Apt613 Live we’re bringing you an interview that speaks to the spirit of the season. Steve Beauchesne is a co-founder of Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company: an Ottawa favourite whose ever-evolving flavours can be found on-shelves and on-tap at LCBOs and bars around Ontario. Yet Beau’s is more than just a brewery: they’re working with a creative business model that allows them to give until it hurts-without hurting profits. I chat with Steve about Beaus’ innovative approach to charity that goes beyond writing a cheque. As if that... | Continue reading article

This week on Apt 613 LIVE we’re highlighting two very cool events taking place this weekend: Fryquency is celebrating its one-year anniversary over at Mugshots this Saturday November... | Continue reading article

Dear fellow lovers of radio and Apt613: Due to the events in downtown Ottawa which occurred on Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014, we were unable to go live on the air for our usual radio broadcast on CHUO 89.1 FM.

So please take a listen, stay strong-and my heart of course goes out sincerely to all those affected by... | Continue reading article
