This week on the Richard Crouse Show we meet Chris Strikes and Joella Crichton. Their movie “Becoming a Queen,” which is now on VOD, is a documentary about Joella Crichton, Canada’s most decorated Caribbean Carnival Queen. The film, directed by Chris Strikes, covers Joella’s attempt to win a historic tenth title in her last ever competition. The movie explores expressions of cultural identity, Caribbean artistry and a community’s struggle against a lack of understanding of Carnival in the larger society.

We’ll also meet author KL Armstrong. She has written over 40 books, including the bestselling young adult series the “Darkest Powers” and “Darkness Rising,” the YA book “Aftermath,” the middle-grade novel “A Royal Guide to Monster Slaying” and the adult thriller “Alone in the Wild.” On television the SyFy series “Bitten” was based on her book the “Women of the Otherworld.”

Her new novel is “The Life She Had,” a thriller about two women with secrets they want to keep buried, but when a body is discovered nearby, they must move quickly to prove their innocence and protect the lives they’ve built for themselves. We talk about how she comes up with her intricate stories and characters, and why she sometimes writes under a pseudonym.

Finally, we’ll get to know Jon Harvey, bassist and lead singer of Monster Truck. The JUNO Award-Winners are one of Canada’s hardest-working rock and roll bands, a reputation they’ve cemented by touring relentlessly. Their new single, “Get My Things & Go” is available now wherever you legally buy and download great music.
