Aclass: Indigenous Voices by Acast

Today’s podcast is actually a very special event that was hosted by ACAST – an amazing independent podcast company that supports diverse podcasters.

On Nov.3, 2021, I had the amazing honour to guest curate and host Aclass: Indigenous Voices – a panel discussion with some of my favorite Indigenous podcasters from Canada and the US!
