Imagine you’re eleven years old and labelled the school ¨slut.¨ Where would you turn? What would you do? Emily Lindin turned to her diary, chronicling each and every damaging event. More than a decade later Emily published these entries online and founded The Unslut Project. Devastated by the suicides of Rehtaeh Parsons, Amanda Todd, and Audrie Pott, Emily sought to provide some perspective to girls – more than a decade after her experiences - who currently feel trapped and ashamed.
And now, Emily is producing ¨Slut: A Documentary Film.¨ This film will tell the stories of girls who took their own lives because of sexual bullying, and feature the opinions of respected sexologists, psychologists, and media figures to explore how we can all work toward a world where the word "slut" doesn't even make sense as an insult.
Join us on this special broadcast date to learn more about Emily, her film, and how you can help bring its much needed messages to communities everywhere.

There's no question that Steve Nash is probably on the short list for many people as one of the most popular and important Canadian sports figures of all time. This two time NBA MVP has been described as one of the most unique athletes in the world and his new movie "NASH - The Documentary" gives an up close and inside look into the individual.

NWP welcomes writer, producer and director Brian Nunes.
His award winning film "Find Your Way" is a discussion of how we define success - both culturally and personally. It examines the way we create value based on context and challenges audiences to think deeper about how they consume culture. http://www.worldtreefilms.com/wtfilms/desktop.htm
Born and raised in Houston, TX, Brian spent his young professional years in Information Technology - something he was good at but eventually got bored with. Living in Austin after college, he could no longer stand his network management job and sold everything to travel the country busking and pondering life.
In Seattle, Brian began producing film and television, utilizing a film studies background from the University of California, Santa Barbara and a natural ability for storytelling. After discovering a colorful street culture, he started documenting buskers at the Pike Place Market and eventually finished a 97 minute feature documentary on the subject.

The word "psychopath" makes us shudder. It conjurs up images of diabolical predators such as Ted Bundy, Charles Manson, Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy and David Berkowitz. We think of the psychopath as a rare creature lurking in the shadows, but experts who have studied this personality disorder say that is a gross misconception - that psychopaths are actually quite common in our society.
Today's special guest, Stefan Verstappen, Canadian writer, researcher, author of six books including his latest book, The Art of Urban Survival, and popular documentary maker has spent years studying the behavior pattern of psychopaths and the tremendous destruction they cause in our society.
Stefan says that psychopathy infects the full spectrum of humanity irrespective of race, culture, geography, economic class or personality type. He says that psychopathy is the personality type of many great leaders.
Today Stefan is going to teach us how to recognize the psychopaths that walk among us. Don't miss this fascinating show. Save the date!
