The Defining Moments Canada Podcast

Along with podcast series produced for each project, which listeners can find on the podcast tab of this website, on its respective project’s page and on the DMCP feed on Spotify and Apple music, DMC also produces stand alone audio content that can be found associated with their parent resource. Defining Moments Canada is committed to providing different avenues to learning and strives to present our content in a multi-media approach, and to do so we have begun creating audio interviews with the authors of certain pieces to discuss the content and process behind each piece. These interviews are posted along with the resource and on this page.
