Superheroes abound in popular culture! Their archetypes thrill us, keeping us on the edge of our seats as Hollywood spends billions of dollars a year showcasing the forces of good vs. evil on the big screen. So what about our every day heroes? They may not have the Hollywood blockbuster appeal of The Avengers but their stories still grip us. Today on C-Shift we take a look back at some of the heroes we’ve interviewed over the years who inspire us, move us, make us weep and sometimes their stories even shake us to our core.
C-Shift is a new, half-hour program that travels back in time through the news archives of Context – with host and broadcast journalist Lorna Dueck.
Each week, we compare the historical changes in cultural ideas, attitudes, events, and issues that shape our world.
