Arctic Canada and the Culture Cure is a podcast all about the Canadian Arctic, the land, the people, the culture and what it can teach the rest of the world. Canada's Arctic continues to hold the world spellbound. Twenty-four hours of darkness in winter, to twenty-four hours of daylight in summer, temperatures as extreme as -84 F, walrus, muskox, polar bear, narwhal, and indigenous peoples, rich in culture and tradition that have survived the test of time. Through interviews with prominent community members, elders, hunters, politicians, artists, musicians and sports figures, we will explore tradition, retention and revitalization of culture, colonialism, residential school, climate change, and much more.

I’m really enjoying this podcast so far! Entertaining and informative. I really enjoy the mixed format in the different people who have been interviewed so far, there is so much to be learned through the experiences, knowledge and stories of others. I cannot wait to hear more!
Excited for what to come
I gave this a listen last night. I’ve lived in northern Canada and been to places Rob speaks of. I’ve just scratched the surface of his experiences. The North is fascinating from both a geographical and people perspective. I am interested to hear more about it from his perspective as well as potential guests. I think this is going to be a podcast that both entertains and educated.
