Let’s Find Out is a monthly podcast about local history. It’s recorded in Edmonton, Alberta – aka Amiskwaciwâskahikan – on Treaty Six territory.
We take questions from curious Edmontonians about local history, and find out the answers together. We’re about to launch a new season, about parks and natural areas in Edmonton.
