It's our last episode of the year, and we've got a real winner for you.
The Christmas Season is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than by giving? I talk to Denise Lauritano, co-chair of the UBC Community United Way Campaign. She stepped in at the last second when our originally scheduled interview fell through, and not only agreed to do it, but was quite enthusiastic about it too. It was amazing, because I knew her back when she worked at a different position at UBC, before she left to go somewhere else where it was in the middle of nowhere. So when I thought of doing the United Way and looked at the page to see who I might talk to, seeing her name there was a wonderful surprise! I didn't even know she had come back.
Jenny and I also have a great discussion on e-textbooks and whether they are the future of post-secondary course materials. Don't worry. It's not all for the college crowd, though, as we do talk about e-books in general as well, and some of the e-textbook stuff is certainly applicable to you Kindle readers! And Nook, and...well, e-readers in general.
There are a lot of laughs in this episode. I think you'll enjoy it. You can find it here.
