Episode 048 – Canada is More Than 150 – ft. Sharon & Bram, Tantoo Cardinal, Spirit of the West

Hello,

I thought long and hard and what I wanted this show to look. I am not super into patriotism, especially the rah-rah style that comes from our neighbours to the south. I acknowledge that I lead a life of incredible privilege, more so than most others. The three interviews today are from the archives: chats with prominent Canadian artists – Sharon & Bram, Tantoo Cardinal, Spirit of the West
