Mad Pride Week is all about great culture and arts, including at MADx, SOS and the Mad Hatter Street Fair. For those of you who missed it, Tim Brown appeared on the Arts and Culture program at CJRU The Scope at Ryerson, on July 5, 2016.
What did he miss? Let us know in the comments. [Please note that Tim’s lungs were crushed under 2.5 atmospheres of anxiety throughout most of the interview].
