The past two Wednesdays over at Activehistory.ca we’ve posted new episodes of the History Slam podcast. First, we had our Canada Day special. In this episode I talk with Joel Girourd, the Director of State Ceremonial and Protocol and at the Department of Heritage. We chat about how things become official national symbols, the protocols that surround national symbols, and policies surrounding the flag. Find the full post here.
This week we posted our episode highlighting the Canadian Mysteries series. In this episode, I talk with co-directors of the project, John Lutz and Ruth Sandwell, about Canadian Mysteries. We talk about how they put together the mysteries, the site’s audience, and the Franklin Exhibition. We recorded the episode right before the launch of the Franklin Exhibition mystery at Library and Archives Canada. Find the full post here.
