Season 2 – Your Culture Raises You

Hyphenated, the Podcast is a show about cultural identity. Through conversations, reflections and more formal interviews (and with lots of laughter) the show explores how Canadians identify, and how those identities are determined. This show is meant to be a mix of education, comedy, and it hopes to include its entire audience in several conversations about how to make sense of being more than one thing at any given time.
