One day I received a call from a media studies student asking me, as a "business expert", for my opinion on the rising value of the Canadian dollar. I provided my thoughts and, to my surprise, I was asked to provide a weekly commentary on business, economics and, sometimes, political issues facing Canadians. The series is called "Bang for Your Buck" (their idea, not mine) and airs every Wednesday between 12:00 and 1:00 P.M. If you would like to hear an example click on any of the links provided below but I need to warn you that "The opinions expressed in these segments are those of Steve Bang and are not those of Humber College, its Management, staff or students. Listen at your own risk."
