Episode 43: Obesity – what’s the big deal? – Part III
In episode 43, we take our last run/jog at the problem of obesity by exercising our right to talk about the benefits of increasing activity. James tells the listening audience that Mike is 5’ 6” and weighs 250 lbs and Mike demonstrates to James how to become more active by chasing him around the studio with a hockey stick – but only metaphorically speaking, as Mike lives in Edmonton and James lives in Vancouver.
