It’s amazing just how much drama can take place in the mini-universe of a neighborhood. This week we bring you stories of neighbors watching out for each other, for better and worse, including a story from CBC's WireTap.
In one story, a mother goes to her neighbors with an incredible request—to help care for her son after she dies—and is shocked by their response. Also: One woman’s valiant effort to fight the ultimate neighborhood plague—dog poop.
- The story of a father who relies on the help of his neighbors in order to take his baby daughter out on a walk. Actor Daniel Beirne reads this excerpt from Ryan Knighton's book C'mon Papa: Dispatches From a Dad in the Dark (which is not yet available in the US). This story originally aired on CBC's WireTap, distributed in the U.S. by Public Radio International. It was produced by Jonathan Goldstein and Mira Burt-Wintonick with Cristal Duhaime. (9 minutes)
