The True North Eager Beaver Interview Project --- Sugith Varughese

The True North Eager Beaver Interview Project --- Sugith Varughese Episode 269

Hey Kits!

Weekdays at 7-ish Eastern, we livestream a (sometimes) quick take on the news, in addition to our usual formats.

When we have the privilege of welcoming a guest to The Beaver Lodge, we offer them an opportunity for an extended chat, to get to know a bit more about that which makes them tick.

When they agree, we present the discussion to you.

Our guest today describes himself as a Saskatchewan boy, and has had a most impressive, multi-decade career in the entertainment industry as an actor, writer, producer and director.

He is a four-time nominee and a recipient of a Writer's Guild of Canada Award, a Dora Awards nominee, multiple Genie and Gemini Award nominee, a Trillium award winner, and a recipient of the Governor General's medal for Saskatchewan.

He has well over 100 acting credits to his name including the roles of Mr. Mehta on 'Kim's Convenience' and Dr. Singh on 'Transplant'.

And as if that wasn't enough he was a writer for the beloved show 'Fraggle Rock'.

TODAY WE TALK WITH LEGENDARY CANADIAN ACTOR, PRODUCER, WRITER, AND DIRECTOR SUGITH VARUGHESE, AND WE TALK ABOUT:

  • The SAG-ACTRA Strike
  • Making History
  • Screenwriting
  • 'Fraggle Rock'


No "gotcha" questions. Culture in full sentences.

Our morning show is the purrr-fect thing for busy Kits who are on-the-go, but still want to stay engaged.

This is episode 36 of The True North Eager Beaver Interview Project and

Episode 264 of the Daily Beaver Morning Show.

Not everyone can do everything. But everyone can do something.

Because #DemocracyIsSomethingYouDo...

Write to your MP, MPP, MLA, MNA, Senator, or preferred local media outlet to tell them you expect them to dig deep into the Doug Ford corruption story as well as indicted-in-the-USA-for-trying-to-steal-an-election Mike Roman's links to Stephen Harper and Andrew Scheer. 

Be a good neighbour: Make sure to get your XBB, flu, pneumonia, and / or RSV shots, to be sure you're ready for both the respiratory virus and holiday gathering seasons. Let's all do our bit to keep our hospitals unclogged

Finally, support your fellow Canadians by donating to the Red Cross Wildfire Response. To do some good around the world, the Red Cross also has an appeal to help those devastated by the recent earthquake in Morocco.
