The Yukon members of Crime Writers of Canada are pleased to present an author's interpretation of "Filmsong" by Pasha Malla. For Pasha, noir writing is the art of exclusion, but here he offers insights and background to the writing of "Filmsong" published in Toronto Noir by Akashic Books. The story won the 2009 Arthur Ellis Award for excellence in crime writing.
This Canada Day marks 125 years since the formation of Canada's national park system. Protecting our national heritage is a new breed of park warden - the Parks Canada Law Enforcement Officer. The Yukon members of the Crime Writers of Canada host an interview with Birch Howard of the Yukon Field Unit. Join moderator Jessica Simon for a look at the scope and challenges of modern-day crime fighting in Canada's hinterland.
Join Pasha Malla for an in-depth discussion of noir writing, his Arthur Ellis Award winning short story "Filmsong", and his residency at Berton House, the childhood home of Canadian historian Pierre Berton. Jessica Simon moderates the debut Mystery Lounge, an event organized by the Yukon members of the Crime Writers of Canada
Torsten Kohnert is exactly the person to we need to shine a light on in our mushing world. He is now 44, and the German born Torsten has been mushing for half his life. His recent race, the Copper Basin 300 landed him in 11th place out of 48 teams, and gained him, in my opinion the most prestigious award there is: The Vet's Choice for Best Cared for Team.
Torsten's history with sled dogs goes back to 1995 when he moved to Northern Sweded (Lapland) to pursue his passion. He has finished every major race he has entered, including races in Scandinavia Niclas 9 times Finnmark Race (600 mi), 2 Yukon Quests, 2 Copper Basins, and the GinGin 200.
Currently, Torsten is living in the beautiful AK to run and race, and his wife and one of two daughters (ages 11 and 14) will join him soon. . Like many, he has a tour operation with the sled dogs, with 40-50 Huskies in his kennel. And, also like many mushers, living with Nature is a big part of his life, with fishing and hunting to help fill the freezers and his dog's stomachs for those long winter nights.
We will be talking about those big races mentioned earlier, learn more about how he runs his kennel and the special care he takes of his sled dogs that earned him the Best Cared for Team at the Copper Basin. We will also talk about raising kids with sled dogs, his move to AK, the differences in racing in Lapland vs North America and so much more.
And again, is it the opinion of this musher, that the the most important and prestigious award IS Vet's Choice for Best Cared for Team. My knowlegde and experince pales in comparison to his, and most other mushers, but as I've said before, the care, the bond, the love we give to those we are responsible for comes back to us 1000's of time over. It is that trust and love that gets you and your team across that finish line.

Author Charles Souby first met the Bay Area as an 18 year-old Chicago transplant. Following the path of Jack Kerouak he hiked to the Yukon. And then spent a couple of years in Alaska, working in radio and music. Following his musical influences including, psychedelia, bluegrass and folk.
Upon his return to the Bay area, in 1982 Charles, already a heavy drinker, found the path to drug addiction. It took more than a decade for him to find his way out. Clean and sober for twenty years, Charles shares how he freed himself from a life of addiction. How he manages sobriety by being steadfast in his actions and thoughts. And how he now helps others to find their way, through his writing and performing.
The name Rob Cooke to a musher who loves Siberian Huskies is like ice cream to a cone. Known for running his amazing purebred team in the Copper Basin, and the Iditarod, Rob has the miles under his belt to be considered an expert in his field.
Along with his wife Louise, the kennel is based in Whitehorse, Yukon Canada. They strive for keeping their Siberians to breed standard, running the mid and distance races. This is just one of the things we will be talking about in this episode, along with the future of Siberians racing, and being the incredible companions they've always been.
