BigRead July 12


The latest instalment of "The Big Read" explores an intriguing piece of art—and the bitter court battle it triggered. Passed down for centuries, the so-called 'Sanders Portrait' may (or may not) be the only painting of William Shakespeare created during his lifetime. In a story that reads like its own Shakespearean tragedy, the portrait is now in limbo, the final act still to be written. It's a Big Read you won't want to miss.

Join hosts Scott Sexsmith and Michael Friscolanti and go Inside the Village. This week we sit down with a staff lawyer for the Advocacy Centre for Tenants Ontario to discuss the state of renting. You can check out all full length video episodes here. New episodes go live every Wednesday night. Look for it across the Village Media network, wherever you get your podcasts or get audio only versions here.​
