I’ll be joining Edmonton’s historian-laureate
Chris Chang-Yen Phillips and guests for a live recording of the Let’s Find Out podcast at the Needle Vinyl Tavern on Saturday, March 11, 2017.
Also joining the discussion are Dr. Kisha Supernant (
Métis Anthropology Professor & Archaeologist) Sarah Hoyles (Producer behind the ECAMP podcast on Edmonton history). We will be discussing how we approach truth when doing historical research. I plan to talk a lot about the research I have done into the crazy Social Credit era of Alberta politics in the 1930s.
Doors will open at 2:00 p.m. and tickets are $15 in advance, available on
A new Edmonton-based history podcast was launched today. is hosted by our city’s Historian-Laureate Let’s Find Out and the first two episodes of the podcast can be found on Chris Chang-Yen Phillips the podcast website or on iTunes.

The first episode delves into the history of
Edmonton’s Snow Goose Chase (which I had never heard of until I listened to this episode) and the second tries to answer the question “ has Edmonton ever had a black public school trustee?”
Chris is encouraging curious Edmontonians to email him with historical questions they want answered that could turn out to be inspirations for future podcast themes. Email him at
firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions.
As an avid fan of history and podcasts, I am looking forward to listening to more podcasts from Edmonton’s official historian and chief story teller.
Two other history podcasts,
Stuff You Missed in History Class and Hardcore History with Dan Carlin, are also on my subscription list and are worth listening to. I would also recommend that history and journalism buffs take some time to listen to the BBCs War and Words podcast series.
