What on Earth is Going on? is a weekly podcast where small talk is banned but tangents are welcome. Hosted by Ben Charland, the show centres around genuine dialogues with people who think deeply and are keen to consider the big questions. These conversations are playful, wide-ranging, sometimes provocative and always educational, and they cover any topic that shines light on the human story today.
Original music composed by Andrea Wettstein of Six Degrees Music & Sound in Calgary, Alberta.
Ben Charland is a writer, podcaster and creative consultant currently based in Kingston, Ontario. Ben's work is informed by the many hats he's worn over the years: playwright, theatre director, artistic director, tour guide, actor, political hack, traveler, teacher, government worker, blogger, speechwriter, manager and (yes) traffic coordinator for a paper shredding company. He's lived in four continents and has been lucky to visit over 50 countries, but the common thread for Ben is unrelenting curiosity. Ben has a BFA from the University of Calgary and an MA from the University of London (UK), and is engaged to the woman of his dreams, Shelaine.
