New Discovery

I found this podcast because I loved Ryan McMahon on canadaland commons for a bit! I missed him on that show so I came and found this one!
I didn’t realize that this podcast has several seasons.

Incredibly Informative

Red Man Laughing is insightful, honest, hard-hitting, educational, and entertaining. As a white settler who really wants to educate myself on the experiences and thoughts of Indigenous peoples in this country, this podcast was an amazing place to start. It opened my eyes to so many people and organizations that are leading the struggle in reclaiming land and rights for the original inhabitants of Turtle Island. I will be listening to Red Man Laughing for as long as Ryan makes more content. He does amazing work.
