The Journal – April 13, 2022

“The Journal” is a show produced annually by Centennial College’s Broadcasting students. On the third episode of the 2022 version, we watch four short documentaries and a live performance of Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Lorene Santiso.

The stories on this episode are: a local stuntman with the hobby of shoe patina; the challenges of being alone in a new city; a person who helps newcomers adjust; and the routine of a special grocery store in Toronto.
