    Located in the interior of British Columbia, Smithers is a town with a very interesting history.

    Women's Suffrage

    Women's Suffrage

    For decades, from the 1880s to the 1910s, women campaigned for the right to vote. While they would start to succeed in the 1910s, it was still a long road for many women in various provinces. It would not be until 1940 that Quebec granted the vote, while Indigenous women waited until 1960.

Essential Listening for North Americans

I have been a follower, fan, and patron of Craig Baird for about a year to a year and a half now. This podcast as well as his other’s should be essential learning for all North Americans. The facts are presented in a light and inviting way that really allows you to sit back, relax, and learn in a way thats entertaining. A lot of “History Podcasts” have an obvious angle in their development, but Craig is nothing if not fair and honest in his presentations, interviews, and re-tellings. On personal note… Craig, thank you so much for this podcast. As an American living through a pandemic, your voice and the power it has to transport me to your beloved home of Canada has provided many hours of comfort and encouragement. Thank you again for all the content. Once the border re-opens, I look forward to visiting many of the small towns and hamlets you’ve covered in your podcast.
