The CRAM Podcast!
Discover innovative research and game-changing ideas that impact our lives.
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.

What the media is saying about the CRAM Podcast!
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:
*PLEASE NOTE: Ryerson University changed its name to Toronto Metropolitan University in April 2022.
It was so well organized! Bravo! I was impressed!
Couldn’t find one thing to be improved. Every aspect of this day was excellent.
The topics on offer this year were fascinating. More of the same next year!
I think CRAM is an antidote to cynicism, social isolation, anti-intellectualism, and intellectual elitism. It is civilizing in the best sense of the word.
Incredible effort to put something like that together – so smoothly executed
