Show Notes
As a bonus to season 1 of Xing The Gap, we're releasing video versions of your favourite episodes. Now you get to see AND hear some of the extraordinary Canadians we spoke to this season, plus live drawings by Rick Miller, and multimedia by Kidoons. Enjoy!

Today's guest are Fiona Reid and Meher Pavri, two incredible Canadian performing artists. Fiona’s a legend of stage and screen, member of the Order of Canada, and a mother of two. Meher's a multidisciplinary Millennial who does it all: opera, musicals, theatre, film and TV. The conversation covers generational misunderstandings, technological transformations, evolving views on policing, institutions and authority, letting go of old ideas, being frightened of social media, acknowledging algorithms, stretching phone cords, and admiring your parents even though they don’t know what LOL means. That, plus a game show!
