Richard joins NewsTalk 1010 host Jerry Agar to talk about “Last Call,” a weekly podcast on the stories behind the places where everybody knows your name. Since we can’t go out and have a drink, this is the next best thing!
Just days after his 50th birthday in 2013, CTV’s film critic Richard Crouse was booked for a routine colonoscopy. He thought it would be little more than a nuisance, but it wound up being a life-saver.
Now, six years later, in honour of Colon Cancer Awareness Month, Crouse shares his account of the moment he was diagnosed with cancer and the life-changing effects of that news.
In a series of columns exclusive to CTVNews.ca, Crouse chronicles his childhood as the son of a woman who died of cancer, his own surprise diagnosis and the intrusive treatment that followed, laying bare his eye-opening revelations, deepest fears and most vulnerable moments.
NewsTalk 1010 host Jerry Agar really liked “The Upside” starring Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston. Film critic Richard Crouse rated it 2.5 out of 5. Jerry asks, “Are film critics out of touch with the general public?”
