This week’s podcast: moving past Mandela

This week, Scott Thompson from Hamilton’s CHML had a few questions about the TV coverage of the passing of Nelson Mandela. Scott asks where this ranks on the big TV event scale. I think we’re in such a temporal age that I doubt we’ll be talking much about Mandela once the usual 48- or 72-hour news cycle is over. The death of an elder statesman these days seem to hold less fascination for mass viewers than, say, a Royal Wedding–or even the latest Rob Ford embarrassment.
I also bring Scott up to date on my recent trip to Vancouver to the set of When Calls the Heart (coming this spring to Super Channel) and we recap Bonnie & Clyde. You can listen in here.
