Canadian actress and comedian Lauren Ash, who plays the hilarious scene-stealing assistant store manager Dina on NBC's Superstore, talks about finding her calling in improvisational comedy. Our books columnist Jael Richardson fills us in on A Family Affair by Montreal author Nadine Bismuth (translated by Russell Smith), which won Radio-Canada's Combat national des livres in 2020. Award-winning violinist Janusz Wawrowski talks about discovering a long lost violin concerto by the early 20th century Polish composer Ludomir Różycki, whose career was derailed by the Second World War. The co-owner, operator and president of the Phoenix Concert Theatre, Lisa Zbitnew, updates us on how the iconic Toronto music venue is holding up during the pandemic.
