Okay, I uploaded the rest of Leaving America. All seven episodes are there. Some of you heard this in a 5 episode run–don’t know what they (Toronto) cut, but they went from Seven 6.5 min episodes to Five 5 min episodes. Here are the original versions where you even get to hear me do a bad Tiki Chorus at the Ft. Nelson hotel….forgive me. I was having too much fun.
The 4000 mile road-trip journey is full of immigrants, storms, wild and woolly Oz, screaming Heads, funny interviews, a little history, a little death, a lot of song, and many hidden science fiction references–especially in the music. After all, immigration is about being an alien who finds a home.
And that’s pure science fiction.
I want to thank everyone who allowed me to talk with them along the way, my family, my friends, CBC and Arnold Hedstrom for funding it and giving me complete creative freedom, the great musicians whose music runs through this. And to all the listeners who liked it and told me about it. Thanks for liking my story.
Thanks for posting those. I can’t wait to catch up on the episodes I missed. Also, I’ve been enjoying your more recent ones (Yukon 2058). I especially liked the second one with Jesse Cook playing in the background, references to elders talking about the caribou hunt, etc… Very enjoyable.
Cool. Thanks, Carole! It’s been a fun series to write. And, yeah, I’m glad I finally figured out how to upload the Leaving America series too.
