On Air With Talia Schlanger, World Cafe's New Contributing Host

Get to know the Toronto native as she shares stories and songs with David Dye.
Talia here with a "longtime listener, first-time caller" moment. I've admired David Dye from afar for years, so I was thrilled when he welcomed me to make my first on-air appearance as the new Contributing Host on World Cafe. We talked about my past work as a host at the CBC, my history as a professional head-banger and our shared love of small venues. David was even gracious enough to let me spin a couple tunes. Since I just moved from Toronto for this gig, I chose to share two of my favorite Canadian artists: Andy Shauf, a magical musical craftsman from the prairies of Bienfait, Saskatchewan, and the sassy and syncopated Begonia from Winnipeg, Manitoba.
