Dr. Laurie doles out advice across Canada through her weekly appearances on Eros (The Life Channel), Let’s Talk Sex on MentTV and through a regular feature column in Menz Magazine, which is available on newsstands across Canada.

The popular Sunday-@-the Saidye discussion series began three seasons ago in order to enhance the audience’s theatre-going experience. Playwrights, directors, designers, historians and even scientists provide a background to the plays throughout the SBC Theatre season. Senator Laurier Lapierre, playwright David French , chemist Dr. Joe Schwartz, and literary critic Robert Adams have been among the expert guest speakers. The public, including an escalating subscriber base, attends these programmes in ever-growing numbers. Audiences particularly enjoy the glance behind the scenes and the opportunity to ask their questions.
