INSIDE THE VILLAGE: King of the castle

This week's podcast: Thousands of Canadians will be glued to their television screens Saturday morning for the coronation of King Charles at Westminster Abbey. Long live the pomp and circumstance

Welcome back to Inside the Village, a one-of-a-kind podcast where all news is local — and no topic is off-limits.

On this week's episode, a massive piece of news that will alter your entire life: The coronation of King Charles.

We're being sarcastic, of course. Saturday's much-anticipated event will come and go, and your life won't change one bit.

But is the big spectacle worth watching? Should we still care — even a little — about the House of Windsor? Absolutely, says longtime royal watcher Patricia Treble, our guest on this week's podcast.

A veteran journalist (you can check out to her Substack here), Treble will be among the commoners in Britain lining the streets for Saturday's coronation. She joins us to preview all the pomp and circumstance.

Bottom line: Set your alarm. The festivities will get underway nice and early on this side of the ocean.

Hosted by Scott Sexsmith and Michael Friscolanti, the Editor-in-Chief of Village Media, Inside the Village is a news and current affairs podcast that provides a weekly window into some of the best local journalism from across our chain of Ontario newsrooms. Produced by Derek Turner, the program also explores bigger-picture issues that impact people across the province.

Every episode is available HERE. If you prefer the audio version, it is available wherever you find your favourite podcasts.
