Vive le Canada!

Tomorrow, Canada Day, I will be on CJSW radio in Calgary, as part of their new series, “Today in Canadian History“, where I will be talking about the process of Canadian independence between 1848 and 1982. Details below:
Today in Canadian History launches on Canada Day of 2010. Each episode of the series contains an interview with a Canadian professor, journalist, author, or “everyday” historian and focuses on a unique event or moment that took place on that day in Canadian history. To date, the series has received contributions from over sixty individuals from across Canada.
As a podcast and radio series, Today in Canadian History presents Canada’s past in a unique and accessible manner. The series is designed to be a first step to learning more about our past. We would like to remind Canadians not just about what makes our country great, but what makes it complicated, beautiful, diverse, and ours.
How Can I Listen?
Starting on Canada Day, CJSW will be making the audio available on a variety of platforms. You can listen to the episodes:
- Every weekday morning on CJSW 90.9 FM in Calgary and cjsw.com!
- On this webpage (audio will be posted every weekday)
- On our Facebook page (search, “Today in Canadian History”)
- As a podcast (series will be posted in iTunes on Canada Day)
The series is produced by Joe Burima and Marc Affeld. Local jazz musicians Simon Fisk, Steve Fletcher, and Jon May provided original music for the series. Original artwork was provided by Reid Blakley.
