This week, Let's Talk Trains invites two different Railroad Museums to discuss their museums and their mission. The Georgia State Railroad museum will discuss their history and the future.

Ellen Peckham is artist in the most comprehensive sense of the word. She creates in every imaginable medium, and then some. A visit to her website: EllenPeckham.com, will provide ample evidence of why I am so truly honored to have her on my show. I'm going to ask her to read some of her poetry, and I know you'll share my awe in her work.
Shelly Holcomb is the co-creator of Curate L.A., an interactive web platform that gives users an easy tool to keep track of art openings, exhibitions and events in the city.
Los Angeles is a sprawling, continually evolving cultural landscape with a thriving art scene offering an abundance of museums, galleries, art events, auction houses, and arts districts.
Set up as a map, Curate L.A. is populated with more then 400 venues pinned with active links, so the site helps users keep track of what is going on in any neighborhood. It also encourages the discovery of venues throughout the city, whether it’s an established museum, or a brand-new alternative space.

Confederation, 1812, The Franklin Expedition, World War I, Remembrance Day, Canada Day, D-Day 70th Anniversary, Diefenbaker's Bill of Rights, Canadian museums, Canadian currency, Canadian passports, Government websites, Government publications. And many more things that have changed since 2006 from what they once were and were meant to be. The Harperfication of Canada continues to rewrite history and common sense. All for the false image of a political party barely a decade old that has worn out its welcome already.
Meanwhile, science, statistics, libraries, archives and the agencies that oversee them are disappearing at a breakneck pace. Because they present a truth different from the "official" Harper Government stories. The word "Royal" is back with a vengeance in every place it ever was before. Even some new places.
We welcome back Stephen Lautens to help decipher and explain this ludicrous revisionism of history for the dogmatic aims of a backward, regressive party and regime that has cheapened Canada at home and abroad.
