Guest:

  • John Brenner, Assistant News Director/Business/News, Bell Media Radio Ottawa

With Vancouver Police “Stand(ing) on guard for thee,” the city still descended into chaos following the Canucks loss to the Big Bad Bruins. Should the city have been better prepared? Was it the work of anarchists or drunk, rich suburban kids?

From Soccer Riots in Europe and South America to baseball riots in Boston, what is the cause of this sort of anti-social behavior?

CHUM Radio Ottawa’s John Brenner will be on the Samantha Clemens Show and the two will get to the bottom of the Vancouver riots and other sports related “incidents.”

Be a part of the show by calling Samantha at 617-237-1234 and get your voice heard!

Nov 7: Fort Hood massacre; “Good To Be God”, by Tibor Fischer
Nov 7th, 2009 by Sam

Segment 1

Fort Hood massacre. Florida massacre. The Dr. Tiller killing. Terrorism? Alienation? Religious? Hopelessness? What do they have in common? What is different? With unemployment is such bad shape, will there be more of these?

Segment 2

What does it mean to be good? And, should it be encouraged? Or, does that make it a career move, something you do like file your taxes or wash your hands in a public restroom? British novelist Tibor Fischer talks about his new novel “Good to Be God.” Yup, it’s about a guy pretending to be God, a British guy no less, in Miami. Who is trying very hard to be good. From a review in the Guardian:  ”When was the last time you saw hardened drinkers pass around a novel that asks some big philosophical questions?”
