Canadian Comedy began on stage and on radio with travelling humourists such as The Dumbells. Early radio trained Wayne and Shuster who went on to fame with literate humour. Television developed world class comedians, influenced by French and English literary traditions.

In this lecture launching his new book 'The Future is Analog'David Sax explores how we can return to the heart of technology to create a more human future where digital progress serves us first and foremost. As David argues in this insightful book, the digital world, and experience of the isolation during the pandemic opened our eyes to the fact that experiences do not need to be purely digital. This lecture will suggest that the path to a healthy future lies not with convenience, but with community, not with technology, but with humanity.
