Episode 4: What do a boat and a puzzle have to do with teacher burnout during COVID-19?
Dr. Laura Sokal and Dr. Lesley Eblie Trudel are part of a team of UWinnipeg researchers that have been studying stress and resilience in teachers since the early days of the covid-19 pandemic. By conducting a survey of over 2000 teachers from across Canada, the researchers are now able to gain a better understanding of the demands, resources, and stressors experienced by teachers. What they are finding is when it comes to resources and demands, not all teachers are in the same boat. And when it comes to experiencing burnout, some teachers fit a certain pattern, while others fit an entirely different puzzle altogether. On this episode the research question is, “What do a Boat and a Puzzle have to do with Teacher Burnout during COVID-19?”

Episode 3: How does history teach us about structural racism?
Dr. Mary Jane McCallum is assistant professor in the History Department at the University of Winnipeg, the Canada Research Chair in Indigenous People, History, and Archives and a member of the Munsee-Delaware Nation. Throughout her academic career, McCallum has focused heavily on research related to twentieth century histories of health documenting the impacts of Canada’s colonial healthcare system on Indigenous persons. McCallum argues we need to look to history in order to better understand present day forms of structural racism. On this episode, we ask the research question: “How does history help us to think about structural racism?”

Episode 2: How Do We Build More Resilient Cities Post-Coronavirus?
Dr. Jino Distasio, Professor of Geography and Vice President of Research and Innovation at the University of Winnipeg has been part of a group of academics from across Canada working to understand how increased income inequality has affected neighbourhoods. This multi-city study has revealed that over the past forty years income distribution has shifted altering the social-spatial structure of cities and dividing neighbourhoods along economic lines. The fallout from the current health crisis with Covid-19 has further revealed how economic and social barriers are affecting neighbourhoods and the need for more investment towards community development and social infrastructure. On this episode we take a walk with Dr. Distasio around his home neighbourhood in Winnipeg asking the research question “How do we build more resilient cities post-coronavirus?”

Episode 1: How do we Stop the Spread of White-Nose Syndrome in Bats?
Over the past decade, millions of hibernating bats across eastern North America have died from a fungal disease called white-nose syndrome causing the fastest population decline of wild mammals ever recorded. Through their research, Dr. Craig Willis and the bat lab research team at the University of Winnipeg have been trying to slow the spread of this disease and help affected bats survive. On this episode the research questions is, “how do we stop the spread of white-nose syndrome in bats?” We will hear from Dr. Craig Willis, bat lab research coordinator Kaleigh Norquay and other researchers about what they are doing to curb the spread of white-nose syndrome and what their research can tell us about managing wildlife diseases in the wake of global bat-borne pandemics like COVID-19.
