In January I had the pleasure of joining radio host Rick Cluff on CBC’s The Early Edition for an interview on the importance of play. The interest in my research was piqued because of a Teen Philosopher’s Cafe I moderated on the topic of ‘play vs. work’ on behalf of Simon Fraser University’s Cafe Series.
What interested me most about the interview was that CBC took the time to interview Vancouverites on what they thought play was. The answers, while not necessarily surprising, affirm that play is ambiguous and yet seems to mean similar things to different people–for example that play is the opposite of work.
You can listen to the 6 minute interview on The Early Edition at the 1:30:53 mark.
