Welcome to our first official episode of Riel Opera Talk! We are your hosts, Taryn and Sarah (UToronto)! This week we briefly introduce Louis Riel the man and the opera based on his life, and preview the format of future episodes by interviewing ourselves.
Next week’s episode will feature a conversation with Métis scholar Adam Gaudry (UAlberta) and will explore the historic figure of Riel’s use in nationalizing projects.
Episodes will be released weekly on Wednesdays here and on SoundCloud. Follow us on Twitter @RielOperaTalk and if you have any comments or questions, we would love to hear from you at LouisRielPodcast@gmail.com.
