Ethan Ward and Zach Weil take a deep dive into why exactly the participation rates in youth sports are declining. Through Interviews with two time Olympic gold medalist Catriona Le May Doan, and the CEO of Kidsport Calgary Kevin Webster, we get to hear two unique perspectives on why this problem is happening. Webster and Le May Doan both offer unique perspectives into what the City of Calgary and their respective organizations are doing to combat this problem.


Journalists Marin Peake-MacAlister and Gabrielle Pyska dive into the topic of homelessness in Calgary with Drew Guzstak, the volunteer coordinator at the Mustard Seed, and Garry Wise, a man who has experienced homelessness himself. They tackle issues such as dealing with harsh winters and what Calgarians can do to help.

As a society, we often hear a lot about problems but what about solutions? From the constant content creation due to the digital age and the 24-hour news cycle, solutions are often overlooked. 

There is no shortage of news about problems — social problems, political problems, climate problems. But what about the solutions?

We believe the solution side of the equation is just as important as the problem. In the Journal’s new podcast, we take a vexxing problem each episode and talk to experts who are solving that problem.
