Sheryl’s interview with author Anakana Schofield will air Sunday morning May 6th after the 8:30 news.

I did other radio interviews with Sex City (Louise Bak. CIUT 89.5) CBC Victoria’s All Points West with Jo-Ann Roberts and CBC Windsor (which was particularly thrilling because it was LIVE, glug,  & I got to witness a weather forecast) — however I cannot yet locate any online audio for those interviews.
