In the final episode of the Fight for Women’s Rights in Canada I ask Tarah Brookfield, a professor from Wilfred Laurier University from the Faculty of History and Youth and Children Studies, about gender quotas and diversity in workplaces, professorship applications, Indigenous women’s rights in Canada, as well as the Grand River First Nations’ system. I also ask her about how transgenderism may be affecting women’s rights, and what may be the best type of relationship for children's prosperity and stability.

Onwards! The fight for women's rights continues, with its interesting turns in the Canadian political arena of the 1900s. In this 4-part series, Professor Tarah Brookfield from Wilfred Laurier University unravels her research and vast knowledge of the subject in Part 3 with Changemakers. The history of the suffragist movement in Canada for women is a subject not to be forgotten or overlooked. We got this far for getting the vote, equality, and freedom. Men and women should not let their guard down, and keep fighting for our life-freedoms.

Professor Tarah Brookfield joins us from the University of Wilfred Laurier in Waterloo, Ontario, representing both the faculty of Youth and Children as well as the faculty of History, and shares her knowledge on the history of the women's rights movement in Canada. Women did not only fight the government to get the vote. There were also disagreements between the women themselves on if they should even get the vote in the first place. That, and much more interesting politics is in this Women's Rights series with Professor Brookfield.

Bernie talks with us about creating magic on and off stage with his experience of over 30 years in teaching people from all walks of life how to be free from their self-criticisms and let their inner actor or actress come out. It turns out that improv doesn't only help us with our confidence, it can help familial relationships, romantic ones, and even when we're at work toiling through a tough day. Bernie co-founded Theatre on the Edge in Waterloo, Ontario, to teach people how to feel strong, and to believe in themselves and their capabilities.

Roehl has designed one of the first curriculums on virtual reality for community college programs in Canada, and authored several books, among them, “Playing God: Creating Virtual Worlds”. His VR packages are used by VR enthusiasts until today.
In Part 2, we talk about Theatre on the Edge, one of the first improv theatre institutions in South-Western Ontario, which Roehl co-founded in 1981, and what improv can do to improve our lives and strengthen our spirit.
Episode 7 - The Unconditional Japanese Surrender – WWII Posted: January 8, 2020 - 29 minutes - 41.9 Mb -
There are those who have never tasted war. There are those who have tasted so much of it that they wake up at night on their knees crying. And then there are those who say that the atomic bombs didn’t exist. We will explore the lives of a couple changemakers on both sides, and also dive into the real-life experiences of both the Americans and the Japanese who, on opposing sides, suffered tremendously, and serve as a reminder that we will never want to have another world war again.

Episode 4 - The Hidden History of the DNA Discovery - Part I Posted: November 11, 2018 - 29 minutes - 39.4 Mb -
You'll hear about a key person who was behind the discovery of the DNA molecule, who is rarely mentioned in public literature on the topic. If she is mentioned, it is usually just in passing, or a sneer. Rosalind Franklin was a changemaker in three different fields in science. She did much more than the photo she’s famous for creating--Photo 51. Because of her, Watson and Crick were able to get to the answer. Linus Pauling, their competitor in America, did not get to it in time. He didn’t have Rosalind Franklin to give the missing link.
