I have an item on tomorrow’s Popped Culture on CKDU.
Last month, I attended the fourth annual World Rock Paper Scissors Championship here in Toronto. I was feeling a bit dejected, because everyone I pitched the idea to didn’t want it (it’d been covered to death in past years). But I’d signed up for media credentials, and I thought it sounded fun, so I went anyway. I ended up with a bunch of tape I didn’t know what to do with. I sat on it for a couple weeks.
Then last week, a serendipitous email from Melissa Buote arrived, telling me the theme of this week’s show was “Games.” Suddenly, my story had a home.
The moral: even if you don’t think anything’ll come of it, if your gut says go, go. And bring your tape recorder.
