If you haven’t yet listened to the French-Canadian Legacy Podcast, I urge you to check it out now. I was honoured to be included in Jesse Martineau’s first round of interviews as he and Mike Campbell get this exciting new endeavor off the ground. The podcast is recorded in Manchester, New Hampshire, which seems to be undergoing a bit of a Franco-American renaissance of late, with renewal happening at the local Franco Center, a very popular Poutine Festival growing by leaps and bounds, and now this exciting podcast, which is exploring the meaning of Franco-American identity today, for a new generation of French-Canadian descendants.
My episode focuses mostly on my solo show, Piecework: When We Were French, which is almost 10 years old now, but recently became available for streaming on-line. It was a pleasure to revisit the show with Jesse, who only recently discovered it and shared it with his family before our conversation. I’m grateful to know that it still resonates with the people who watch it, and I’m happy to be included in a series of conversations that I so longed for back when Piecework was first conceived.
There are many more great episode on the way. Subscribe to the podcast so you don’t miss a thing!
