DiverCITY #4: Jewish Films & Micro-Lending in South Africa

On this podcast we have falafels, beer and Chinese noodles at the opening night of the Toronto Jewish Film Festival. Then we head over to the Lend To End [Poverty] fundraiser to learn about micro-lending to women in South Africa, where the effects of apartheid continue to hinder progress.

There were also a couple of surprise guests - Ben Mulroney of CTV's Canadian Idol and Evan Solomon, host of CBC News: Sunday.
