tune in tokyo.

Scott and I were interviewed by Kelly Crowe from CBC News this morning regarding a new report published in today's issue of the journal Science of the Translational Medicine in which researchers at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health announce they have discovered specific genetic alterations on the X chromosome that increase the risk of developing autism

From what I understand, a small portion of the interview will air tonight on The National from 10pm to 11pm EST and the local Toronto CBC News from 5-6:30pm as well.  Check your local listings for the channel.  If you follow @scottcarefoot and @ficklefeline on twitter we'll let you know exactly when the segment is going to start.  It will also be on CBC radio and online.  I'll post the link once I have it.   And don't blink - you might miss it!  Thank goodness I got my hair done this past weekend....

Edited to add:

Here's the link! Fast forward to 14:00
Also, Max opened the National news tonight:
Here is the version that was run on the National news - different from the local news (better!):


  1. I will look for the online link tomorrow!

    I can't watch any of these videos - probably because I don't have Windows/IE

    Congrats though :)

  5. Vanessa - I'm on a mac using safari and I saw them no problem?

  6. I saw it last night. I woke up at 1am and Craig was watching the news online and I came downstairs EXACTLY as your segment was starting! Crazy! You looked great. Craig said it was the "quietest he's ever seen Scott" though! heehee.

    Hmm. Could be because of some of the magic anti-script, anti-ad stuff our resident sys-admin has installed here ... I'll try to look at them from work ...
