Backmasking on The Hour

Back in February 2006, CBC’s The Hour made a road trip through Alberta. They interviewed me for a short segment about backmasking in which they featured my website.

For your viewing pleasure, here is the clip. (Just bear with me getting through the first 15 seconds).

The producer that arranged the interview gave me a DVD with this clip. She said she didn’t have any problem with me putting it on YouTube so please enjoy!

One Red Paperclip

One Red Paperclip is a site about one man’s successful attempt at trading one red paperclip for something bigger and better until, 14 trades later, he had a house. File under, “why didn’t I think of that?”

Coincidentally, because of the One Red Paperclip guy’s challenge to CBC’s The Hour, the show went to Yahk, BC and on the way they did a couple of shows in Calgary. It was one of those Calgary episodes that I was on.



George Stroumboulopoulos and Jeff MilnerBeing a part of the studio audience was a lot of fun. George is one of those rare people whose great TV personality is totally real. He is almost exactly the same one-on-one as he is in front of the nation.

I also enjoyed meeting some of the producers and even the director of Newsworld. The Hour is a great program, one that I never realized was as good as I’ve heard it to be. I’ll be watching more often in the future.
