The CRAM Podcast

The CRAM Podcast was born out of the CRAM learning festival launched in 2019. The goal is the same: to bring novel and innovative research and ideas to the public. Journalist Mary Ito interviews leading researchers and big thinkers from across Canada. We look at the evolution of work, the re-imagining of home and community, and our changing relationship to the world.

The CRAM Learning Festival

On April 5, 2019, CRAM was born. The first learning festival of its kind in Canada, the goal of CRAM was to bridge the gap between research and the public. Universities are brimming with innovations and novel ideas yet most of this knowledge never reaches the public. CRAM enabled Toronto's four universities to open their doors and invite everyone to participate in a free night of new ideas. An opportunity to learn about bold concepts that are revolutionizing the way we live and work. We hope to mount another CRAM festival when it's safe to do so. In the meantime, check out a recap of some of our events below:
