Interview on CBC Radio’s The Point


Be still my squawking heart. I’ll be doing an interview for The Point with Aamer Haleem on CBC Radio 1 on Tuesday, May 26 at 2pm your local time.

CBC’s The Point is a provocative and entertaining series of conversations featuring guests who bring personal experience and opinions on a variety of topics. I’ll be squawking about my new book, 397 Ways To Save Money and weighting in on getting out debt, saving money, and the evils (or joys) of paying for television.

Where and when to listen:

  • On air: CBC Radio 1, 2pm local time, or 2:30pm in Newfoundland and 1pm central time
  • On line: Pick a stream for your local timezone
  • On Sirius 137: Noon and 2am Eastern
  • On Podcast: Get The Point Podcast

I’m a whole lotta nervous and slightly scared, so do tune in and cheer me on. I could use a friendly listener or two when the “Point People” choose to agree or disagree with my own point of view.

UPDATE: The show is now online here: Spending Column: 397 Ways to Save Money (Part 3)

    I’m sure you’ll rock the interview. I’ll have to see if I can conspire to configure my day to allow me to listen in.


    PS. What do you organic farm?

    You’re kidding! That’s so cool. Am very excited for you. Good luck!

    The CBC and I divorced after they made such boneheaded changes to Radio2 — but this will surely be a reason to turn the radio on again 🙂

    Congrats on hitting the ‘big time’ 🙂
    And the book cover looks great!

    Superb! Congrats and I will try to tune in as well! Squawk away!

    Thank so much everyone! I did the interview and it should broadcast 2pm your local time, OR stream it online. Host Aamer Haleem is wonderful – I think I have a new crush. Shhhh, don’t tell Carl. 😉

    I tuned in to the show to hear your interview today, but perhaps I am confused…is it going to be on the show tomorrow, or was it supposed to be on today? It’s over now, already.

    @Stephen CBC’s The Point is on Radio 1 at 2PM your local time. If you missed it in your time zone, try grabbing the podcast here (I’m not sure when they upload the current program).

    Hmm okay. I’ll try the podcast sometime tomorrow – I tuned in today at 2PM EST and they were talking about neo-nazi families, bikes taking over the road vs cars, and unfriendly neighbours.

  11. Kerry May 26, 2009 at 11:58 am

    @Stephen Carl just called and told me the same thing. I’m looking into it. Today’s topics were paying for television and ways to save money.

    Congrats Squawker! Very impressive 🙂

  13. Hayden Tompkins May 26, 2009 at 12:29 pm

    I got my hot little hands on the podcast and am waiting to hear it!

    You sound great so far 😉

    Back from Asia, writing a book in Victoria BC and enjoying re-discovery of the CBC. How great to hear your interview! Frugality is dear to my heart and I have thought of sharing my insights, but have not got around to it (yet?).
    Keep up the inspirational work!
