NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
Season 5 of the Red Man Laughing Podcast was dedicated entirely to conversations, investigations & disruptions about reconciliation in Canada. We have assembled the five most downloaded episodes of the season for those of you looking to get a taste of the work we did this past year.
Today we're proud to introduce "Reflections on Reconciliation." This mini-series will act as a supplement to the more produced & research heavy episodes we've been producing through season 5 and will simply open up our microphones to the community at large to have their voices heard in regards to reconciliation.
After 3 incredible seasons of the Red Man Laughing Podcast we've decided it's time to give back a little. The show has garnered strong support from Indian Country & the mainstream alike over the last 3 seasons and has become well known for its in depth interviews, support of emerging Indigenous artists & for it's biting, sharp & smart comedy style.
We want to share this work - so we're giving it away to YOU for FREE.
We're dedicating this entire season of the show to conversations & investigations into reconciliation. In 2015, there may be no bigger societal challenge more important than a pathway forward between Indigenous Peoples & Canadians.
Season 5 of Red Man Laughing will present interviews, panels, keynotes & other audio materials on reconciliation in hopes of helping to push this conversation forward.
It's here - Red Man Laughing S.5 has started and it promises to be the best season yet! We're launching our biggest season yet - complete with a schedule of live recordings, new partnerships and a new effort to bring listeners out to the field & into the communities/spaces we find ourselves in on our travels while recording Red Man Laughing.
It's official - Red Man Laughing will be back for a 5th season - we officially launch season 5 on Monday September 7th, 2015.
We're making this announcement because there almost wasn't a season 5. After much debate and after careful consideration it's been decided the show will back, BUT, will feature a few changes.
