There are people whose paths you cross and impress you with their creativity and spark. For Pj; Astra Burka is one of those people. If her name is familiar to you, it might be because she comes from a legendary figure skating family: her mother Ellen Burka is a world-renowned coach while sister Petra Burka was a World champion and Olympic bronze medallist.

Astra’s creativity and passion manifested themselves in a different way. She is a trained architect, art director, filmmaker and urban visionary. In this insightful conversation, Pj and Astra cover a lot of ground between talking about her impressions of the Burka skating years to artistic expression to the creation of TORONTO2050.ca, which addresses solutions to issues in the City of Toronto.

Playful, fascinating and delightfully candid; this is a podcast you won’t want to miss!
