As the host of Drive on CBC Radio 2, Rich Terfry is known to Canadians not only for his work as a CBC broadcaster, but also for being the talented hip-hop artist known as Buck 65. In this conversation we speak about the rather unusual experinces he had growing up in small town Nova Scotia, his pursuit of baseball, his beginnings in music, and the uncertainty facing CBC Radio 2 in the wake of the cuts.

Jonathan Goldstein's Wiretap is one of the most intriguing programs on all of CBC Radio. It combines fiction with reality, humour with philosophic musings, and phone conversations with monologue reflections. But above all, each Wiretap episode is a fascinating thirty minute meditation into life and its absurdities, and a glimpse into the thought-filled mind of host Jonathan Goldstein.  We speak to Jonathan about his life as a writer, his beginnings in radio, and the advantages and drawbacks of experiencing life with an outsider's perspective.
