A current affairs show focusing on local news and events that could stand up against anything done similarly by other Halifax media. Each episode of the podcast takes an in-depth look into an issue or issues of relevance to a local and regional audience through research, interviews and analysis. It would be a balanced, enlightening and entertaining approach to things that matter, and should matter, in our own backyard.

Rev. Russell Elliott was born in 1917. When he graduated from university in 1937, some of his classmates were going off to fight in WWII. He has lived all over Nova Scotia, watching it, the communities he made home and the entire world around him change in so many different ways over so many years. He witnessed the effects of the Great Depression. He was 10 when the television was invented and well into his teens when the first one came into his home. A few months over a century in age, he recalls his past as if it was yesterday. To start off 2019, Hali-facts hopes this conversation simply offers you perspective on life from someone who has lived a long and unique one.
