Just about a year after we appeared on CTV’s The Social as the show’s book club expert, we were on the BBC!
Earlier this month, BBC World Service released its World Book Club episode on Herman Koch, author of The Dinner (which we read in August 2013). I was invited to participate in the episode and ask Koch a few questions.
You can hear my part at the 36:00-minute mark, but if you’ve read The Dinner, the whole show is terrific to listen to. I won’t spoil it, but the question I ask (on behalf of the UBC) is pretty controversial… and get a surprising reaction!

The show was actually recorded in July, and I participated by phone from Calgary, where I was visiting friends and taking in the Calgary Stampede for the first time. It was a really cool experience to participate in an international show with such a massive following.
Big thanks to the BBC World Book Club for having us, and thanks to Herman Koch for writing such a great book to discuss!
