Updates on some pod stuff coming up: A mailbag episode next week! Email your messages to email@example.com by September 7 and as long as they require absolutely no research, we’ll try to read them out on air. Back by popular demand, we’ll be doing another Ritchie historical walking tour this September, in collaboration with the Ritchie Community League. The Ritchie area is filled with fascinating stories, from its cameo appearance on SCTV to the cattle that escaped from the Gainers Meatpacking Plant. Send us your questions and Oumar Salifou will use them to build this year’s history walk. Maybe you’ve wondered about the Métis riverlots nearby, the political and ethnic history of the Ritchie area, or whether this area was ever underneath a glacier. How about gentrification, or the Spanish-speaking communities in the area? Send in anything you’re curious about! This is the fourth year the league has partnered Let’s Find Out to bring these tours to you. You can listen to past episodes online: – Episode 42 (recorded 2019) explores the history of meatpacking, German immigration and iconic local species in the neighbourhood. – Episode 24 (recorded 2018) takes you to Wallace Shoe Making, the 1917 Dame residence and Minchau blacksmith shop. – Episode 11 (recorded 2017) features Ritchie School, the Gainers meatpacking plant and Ritchie’s urban forest. Details about how you can join the September 27 history walks will be announced soon. Once again we’ll be recording and sharing highlights from the tour on an episode of Let’s Find Out. Email questions to us by Sunday, September 13. This October 14, Let’s Find Out producers Chris Chang-Yen Phillips and Trevor Chow-Fraser will be speaking at the Alberta Emerald Foundation’s latest Tell Your Story webinar: Becoming a Podcast Pro. RSVP here. This fall, Chris Chang-Yen Phillips will be teaching a course on Writing About Science at the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Extension. We’ll learn how to transform scientific research, theories and term papers into clear and concise writing with a more broad-based appeal. This course will focus on structuring and telling a story, understanding what a general audience is looking for, and on specific tools and techniques to communicate engaging content related to science, technology, and the environment, including general reporting best practices. This course is designed for anyone interested in writing about science! Enrol here.

41 – How We Make Nature
The way we think about a thing can totally change the way we behave. We talk about nature as if it’s something outside of us. Separate from us. In this live episode wrapping up our season on humans and nature, we present three short talks to help you shake up your ideas about what’s natural and what’s not. Luke Wonneck, Emily Riddle, and Stephen Raitz share three different lenses on how we build nature where we live: both the idea of nature, and the physical manifestation of those ideas. And then we let the audience build and play to see how we can make more space for the rest of nature in our city. This event was also a fundraiser for The Resilience Institute (formerly known as The Rockies Institute). Audience members helped us raise $600 towards their work, plus $75 and counting from sales of Amanda Schutz’s gorgeous illustration of a white-tailed prairie hare. It’s on sale through December.
