So, usually on Canada Day, I’d be agonizing over how to narrow down my favourite Canadian tunes down to a coherent playlist for you. But this year, there are other things to consider. The number of unmarked graves around residential schools is over a thousand, and it’s going to increase. I mean, not that the […]
Try, try, again, right? We still can’t figure out what the issue was with the randomly not-showing-up playlists. The Swearyverse is not playing nicely with Spotify.

We’re just about half way through Fairtrade Fortnight (who else loves calling to two week periods Fortnights? So much more refined!)
