My Istanbul
On the Bosphorus Strait that slices Turkey's most ancient and mystical city, culture and commerce collide, Europe and Asia come face to face, and life takes on a dream-like quality as masterpieces pepper the landscape. Join one writer as he  wanders the streets of Istanbul and reflects on its countless reincarnations—from Greek to Roman to Ottoman empire, Byzantium to Constantinople, Christian to Muslim to secular society—reminding us of this gem of a city that sits on the cusp of two continents.

Of Myths & Legends
Up the Pacific coast of beautiful and bountiful British Columbia, ribbed by inlets and islands and windy waterways, lies the untamed Great Bear Rainforest, where the grizzly reigns, red cedars rise to reach for the sky and Sasquatch is thought to roam. Join journalist John Zada as he travels from village to town to community, exploring the places and meeting the people who call  the coastal rainforest home.
