The When Words Collide writers' conference (held each August in Calgary) has a podcast page on which they release Guest of Honour speeches, panel discussions, and interviews. These are generally well worth a listen.

My Guest of Honour speech August 2016 was just released: "WWC 2016 GOH speech finds the curmudgeonly, retired professor Robert Runté questioning English teachers and praising fan fiction."

Can't remember why I missed this talk at WWC, but I'm very glad I got to hear it now, it's a terrific overview of the changing landscape: what we're losing, what we're gaining in its place. Loved "I want fries with that."
