The Squamish Sound Podcast

2019-09-06 Squamish Chief The Squamish Sound PodcastWhen Jennifer Thuncher called to interview me for a story in The Squamish Chief, I was delighted as always to talk about Emily Carr. Jennifer’s story duly appeared in the paper (see separate post), and I was further delighted when she told me she wanted to use a clip from the interview in their weekly podcast, The Squamish Sound. It’s a poignant tale in the Emily Carr lexicon, which I like to think I would have told better had I known anyone else would hear the recording. But you’ll get the point.

If you listen to the whole broadcast on YouTube, you’ll find the clip beginning at 12:00 minutes.
