These are the stories of the people, places, things, and moments that make Edmonton our city. In each 10-minute episode, we take a chapter from Edmonton’s past and discuss how it fits into the city’s story—with contributions from local historians, professors, enthusiasts and more! Stay tuned for details on the relaunch of the podcast later in 2021.
