This past week, a friend of this program, currently on a book tour of the States, asked me if I was interested in coming down to one of his book events in Washington state. Not the first time I'd been invited to the land of the free, but this time I felt I needed to explore my own trepidations about crossing the 49th.

In the first half, a departure from form for a little ranting, reading, and raving.

And; the Common Energy Lectures kicked off at the University of Victoria last week. Common Energy describe themselves as: "a network of students, staff, faculty, and regional partners centered at UVic, working to create solutions to the climate crisis in Victoria."

Professor Ned Djilali is a Canada Research Chair and Director of the Institute for Integrated Energy Systems on the series, and he'll join us with some of the cutting edge technology development coming out of the university and what that means for the future of Victoria and beyond in the second half.

And; Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour to bring us up to speed with some of the good things you can get up to in and around Victoria in the coming week.

But first, the ugliness that has become America.
