The Tale of a Town—Podcasts follow the journeys of the Tale of a Town’s story mobiles as they cross the country. Featuring uniquely local voices, these podcasts reveal telling tales about Canada’s disappearing downtown culture. Authentic, lighthearted, thought-provoking, and insightful, these podcasts provide glimpses into a generation of extraordinary stories about ordinary life on main streets across our nation.
The Tale of a Town—Canada is a national oral history and theatre project touring the country to capture the collective community memory of our country’s main streets one story at a time leading up to the celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017.
