    Me, Myself and Han *Repeat*

    Me, Myself and Han *Repeat*

    Eunice Kim immigrated to Canada from Korea when she was five years old. She speaks fluent Korean, but recently, Eunice stumbled upon an unfamiliar word: han. Han is a word that has no English translation. It's used to describe a combination of fiery rage, grief and regret — a feeling so powerful, some believe you can die from it. To many Koreans, han is part of the cultural DNA. So, how exactly did it escape Eunice? Is it possible that she's inherited something she never even knew existed? What Eunice finds cracks open a side of her family, and herself, she never knew before.

    What's in a voice ?

    What's in a voice ?

    Our voices say so much about us ...whether we like it or not. This week, we have two stories which investigate the power of how we sound. Gretel Kahn was born and raised in Panama, but moved to Montreal five years ago. She grew up speaking Spanish but now speaks English fluently, though with a slight accent. And this accent bugs her. We follow Gretel as searches for the source of frustration, and grapples with coming to terms with her own voice. Also, an update from the CBC classic radio show Outfront. Over 10 years ago we heard the story of one woman's struggle to save her voice, and the life it afforded her. We hear how she's doing today.

She has two Canadian children, and married their father, a permanent resident. Despite having her refugee claim denied in 2012, until last year Laka had been able to remain in Canada without difficulty. That all changed when the Canada Border Services Agency started doing sweeps in Fort McMurray where Laka lives. So, she went into hiding.

    Credit Mills

    Credit Mills

    Early in Karina Levin's grade 12 data management course, she knew she wasn't going to pass, so she dropped the course. She'd heard a lot of her friends were signing up at private schools to get better grades. Not the big, prestigious private schools with ivy and uniforms... but these small academies where you could do one or two courses for a fee. And the rumour was, you didn't have to do well to get an A⁠—you just had to buy it. In the wake of the admissions scandal in the U.S., Doc Project producer Julia Pagel, along with 19-year-old Ryerson journalism student Naama Weingarten, investigate what's really going on at the so-called "Credit Mills" in Ontario.

    Rumours of Extinction

    Rumours of Extinction

    Shelly Boyd is Sinixt. She's from the Colville Reservation in Washington, just across the British Columbia border. Shelly is proud of her heritage and who she is... But her sense of home, of where her community belongs, is less solid. Over the last century and a half, the Sinixt were pushed off their land in B.C. and into the southern corner of their traditional territory in the U.S. In 1956, the Canadian government declared the Sinixt extinct. But ... they weren't. Now, they're fighting to reverse the extinction, and come home.

    Library Shame

    Library Shame

    Catherine Cole is a self proclaimed bookaholic, with a particular affection for libraries. But returning library books has never been high on her list of priorities. Which was OK, until the day she incurred a 180 dollar fine, and was shamed in front of other library patrons. Now, with a chorus of other Library Shamed people (from late-returners to book-nibblers) Catherine Cole is looking for redemption, and once and for all, attempting to clear her record of all library shame.
