After a bit of a summer hiatus, we are back on air. The Episode 10 features a conversation with Newfoundland writer Micheal Crummey. He has written extensively about rural and rural cultural experiences particularly in Newfoundland. His recent novel Sweetland stands out as one of the few Canadian novels about a contemporary rural that is very much recognizable as such. In this episode, Michael Crummy reflects on growing up in rural mining towns and why writing honestly about contemporary rural goes against human nature.

NOTE: A small language warning on this episode – it got a bit saltier than usual, but nothing terrible or that you or I haven’t said or heard before.
