"For me, this is always just a personal project for me and my community. And the way that people have connected with it is really cool, and that's fine, but there's also a reason I didn't write any of this in English,” said @jdutchermusic to @brennanmccracken for our May cover story.

City councillor Lindell Smith joins us this week on the podcast to talk about the stigma surrounding Uniacke Square, his political goals and how the north end has changed over the past decade.

All this, plus Island Greek opens, the Apple Barrel closes, Peter Kelly cozies up to the Guardian Angels, the province cracks down on squeegee kids, Celine Dion snubs the city and we say goodbye, one last time, to Helen Hill.
