In this cross-cultural exchange podcast, hosts Jenna and Chidochashe use the Historica Canada Heritage Minutes as a vehicle to examine Canadian history. In this episode, we're joined by Douglas Walbourne-Gough, to talk Jacques Cartier, Canada's OG colonizer and... treasure smuggler? We dig deeper into our emerging meta-narrative of the responsibility behind storytelling, and who decides what is kept and what gets cut.
