The Jennifer Campbell Show


The Jennifer Campbell Show airs Monday to Friday, 9am to 10am.

Welcome to The Jennifer Campbell Show; a new one hour interactive and topical program hosted by Jennifer Campbell that allows you to go behind the top stories of the day and tell us what you think!

Jennifer’s passion for storytelling allows her to connect with listeners and give you a chance to say what’s on your mind. Jennifer wakes up every morning with something to say. She has an opinion on the most important stories of the day and NOT just politics. She’s fair with people, but it won’t take long for you to find out where she stands. On family. On money. On safety. On culture.

Find out what matters to you, weekdays at 9am only on 570News!

9:00 AM – Empathy is bad
Paul Bloom, Brooks and Suzanne Ragen Professor of Psychology, Yale University
We are taught empathy from an early age. There is even a school program called “roots of empathy” where young children learn about babies and caring for others. But a Yale professor says, in fact, empathy might be bad and making the world worse.

9:15 AM – Math is hard comment
The National Post is reporting that Conservative MP Michelle Rempel is demanding an apology after a comment from Calgary’s Mayor Naheed Nenshi.
On social media Sunday, Rempel blasted Calgary’s property tax system saying many business owners outside the core were bracing for major tax hikes this year. She went on to says she thinks council needs to look at changing the system. Nenshi dismissed the claims and said Rempel was trying to make an issue out of something she didn’t understand. He said “Apparently, math is challenging, but hopefully, she’ll figure that out.”

9:30 AM – Let them eat dirt
Dr. B. Brett Finlay, University of British Columbia, Author
A new book claims dirty kids are healthy kids. Dr.B. Brett Finlay and author of “Let them eat dirt: Saving Your Child from an Oversanitized World” and says “We have ten microbes in our bodies for every cell, which means that we are basically walking bacteria farms, and that’s what makes us healthy” The books says as our knowledge of bacteria grows, we are beginning to understand the incredibly important role that probiotics play in our bodies. Anti-bacterials kill all bacteria indiscriminately, even the good kinds that your kids need to thrive. The microbes found in dirt help to train their budding immune systems to respond to bacteria and they populate their gut flora and perform a plethora of functions.
