The Buzz: Guest List

Who we’d love to get together with this summer for drinks, a bite to eat, and uninhibited conversation

Michael Edelson

Larry O’Brien last year, Russell Williams this. What courtroom techniques might the famed criminal defence lawyer spill after a few drinks?

Laurel Smith

Forget Stratford. The gutsy director and playwright has chosen Perth as her heritage town, launching the ambitious Classic Theatre Festival with a focus on golden oldies from the 1920s to 1950s.

Mark Blevis

He’s the co-organizer of the ultra-cool PAB 2010 at the NAC in June. That’s Podcasters Across Borders — a large-scale conference of new media and social media creators.

Kady O’Malley

The CBC’s political blogger has had a juicy few months on the Hill — from the Afghanistan scandals to the Jaffer/Guergis train wreck. Guesses on what’s in store this fall?

Andy Terauds

Because the feisty farmer and Ottawa Farmers’ Market president will be front and centre as debate over Lansdowne Park redevelopment heats up.

Geoff Winter

Children of the ’80s will remember him from CHEZ FM. After a 10-year stint as a radio host in Florida, Winter returns in June to host the morning show at 101.9 DAWG FM, the city’s new blues rock station.
