From Canada, with Peter Noce, a media producer and technology trainer/tutor and Harry Posner, a writer, author and Dufferin County’s first Poet Laureate; sharing our interests and passions with you, on 'The Sill'. The original concept of our podcast was to explore areas relating to Art and Technology, evolving into a virtually ‘no limits’ conversation. Neither of us are experts, nor profess to be. We are on the same level as the listener, offering up ideas and thoughts that come from our life experiences, inviting listeners to eavesdrop on what we hope is an enjoyable and interesting dialogue. We discuss artificial intelligence, the power of poetry in the digital age, explore the worlds of tea and coffee, aging, death and dying, and interview a range of fascinating people. The whole point is to both educate and entertain, and to re-enliven the art of conversation.
