NEWSTALK 1010: Amanda Parris + Lucius Dechausay + Al Val + Linden MacIntyre.

This week on the Richard Crouse Show Podcast I want to tell you about a new short film called Death Doula co-directed by my guests CBC radio and television host Amanda Parris and Lucius Dechausay. It’s the story of a dystopian near-future where our date of death is predicted by an app… but there’s a twist. The death doula, who helps people cope with their deaths, is then tasked with aiding his first love as she nears her final day. It’s an interesting piece of speculative fiction and will be available as part of the CaribbeanTales Film Festival, which this year is available on line across the country via Video-On-Demand screenings on CaribbeanTales-TV.

Then we’ll also meet Al Val, a queer comedian, actor, writer and musician who was recently featured on CBC Gem’s The New Wave Of Standup and will be seen as part of the all-new season of The Stand-Up Show With Jon Dore.

Later in the show we’ll meet Linden MacIntyre. The award-winning former co-host of the investigative news program the fifth estate. He’s also a Giller Prize winning best-selling author with a new novel called the Winter Wives in stores now. It’s a new psychological drama that weaves threads of crime, disability and dementia together into a tale of unrequited love and delusion.
