Your host Daniel Bennett and Western’s President Alan Shepard start at the iconic University College building on campus, then hit the trails with canine companion, Meisha in tow. Alan talks about his unexpected path ‘through the looking glass’ to the field of academia and his arrival in London from his roots in Minnesota. Daniel and Alan share their thoughts on the impact of the pandemic and whether the changes we have seen and experienced are, in fact, permanent. Alan reflects upon the question of how we can engage younger generations to in-person art and culture experiences in the face of a digital world and speaks passionately about the history of the University – its buildings, the campus, the experiences – that shape the Western experience and community. Not to be outdone, Meisha demonstrates the relaxing value of a full stretch out in the middle of an intersection (not recommended for our walkers), and makes sure that Daniel and Alan not only take in the sights of the Thames River trail, but also the scents! Keep your eyes peeled for the groundhogs …!
