We’re excited to announce Sidebar, a new monthly podcast produced by The Brunswickan and CHSR. Listen below, or subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Google Play Music, Stitcher, Podbean, TuneIn Radio or Soundcloud. We also air a few times per month on CHSR 97.9 FM.

This month we take a close look at what cannabis legalization means for New Brunswick, and talk with experts about the social and economic impacts. We speak with Danielle Connell, research services officer at St. Thomas Unversity, Steve Milbury, senior director of priority opportunities at Opportunities NB, and members of the UNB Student Union. Plus, hosts Alexandre Silberman and Isabelle Leger get reactions from Cannabis NB customers in line on day one of legalization.
