Could anything be more Canadian than curling? In many rural communities, the rink is about way more than the sport itself. Sense of belonging, volunteerism, and wellness all thrive on the ice, but how are changing demographics in rural places affecting these local institutions? Join us for a conversation about curling, community, and Canada. Our guests include Olympic gold medalist, Jamie Korab, Norm and Betty Ryder from the Norwich District Curling Club in Norwich Ontario, Gerry Geurts of curlingzone.com, and Dr. Heather Mair of the University of Waterloo. Hurry hard!

  1. I have noticed you don’t monetize ruralroutespodcasts.com, don’t waste your traffic, you can earn extra bucks every
    month with new monetization method. This is the
    best adsense alternative for any type of website (they approve all sites),
    for more details simply search in gooogle: murgrabia’s tools

  2. Hi. I have checked your ruralroutespodcasts.com and i see you’ve got some duplicate content so
    probably it is the reason that you don’t rank high in google.
    But you can fix this issue fast. There is a tool that creates articles
    like human, just search in google: miftolo’s
