In this episode of the CODE LiFE podcast, we address the nature of addiction and the reasons why some people may be more at risk.

La dépendance chez les Canadiens : discussion avec le Dr Ronald Fraser
Les cellulaires, le vin, le café ou l'exercice physique peuvent-ils créer une dépendance? Qu'est-ce qu'une dépendance? Dans cet épisode de la baladodiffusion CODE ViE, nous abordons la nature des dépendances et les raisons qui font que certaines personnes sont plus à risque d'en développer. Nous parlons également de la relation des Canadiens avec l'alcool, de l'impact de la légalisation du cannabis au Canada, de la crise des opioïdes et des stratégies qui pourraient être mises en place pour aider notre société à combattre les dépendances.

#1 Flower Phantoms by Ronald Fraser

In this episode, we discuss Ronald Fraser's Flower Phantoms (1926), an obscure fantasy in which Judy, a student of botanical sciences, engages in a psycho-sexual communion with the soul of an orchid in Kew Gardens.  

We were beguiled by this strange, orchidaceous novella.  Over the course of the programme, we consider Fraser's at once fascinating and problematic treatment of female sexuality, his preoccupation with epistemological questions, and his meditations on the creative act itself.
