Shelve Under: Makers
Play • 37 min

"It's about the idea that you should sit down and make the thing that you want, whatever that thing is, whether it's origami or model boats or model trains or crazy weird robots or glowing things or fountains with lights in them."

- Eric Boyd, Director of Festival Programming, Maker Festival

Jason and Mike talk to Ted about the maker movement in Toronto. Then, Wendy interviews Maker Festival programming director Eric Boyd, and goes out to meet some makers in the Reference Library. Finally: noisemakers, carrot hot dogs, and other things you can learn to make from books.
