Dogcast: David Sauchyn Discusses The New Normal

Here’s that promised podcast version of my interview with David Sauchyn. We discuss the book he co-edited with Harry Diaz and Suren Kulshreshtha titled The New Normal: The Canadian Prairies in a Changing Climate.

If you want to read the article this goes with it’s here.

The New Normal launches on November 16. You can watch the book trailer here. And you can order the book here.

Music used in this podcast is Rythme Gitan by Latché Swing which I downloaded from the Free Music Archive.

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.

  1. Oooh – let’s do this more often!

    I worked with Dave at PARC a few years ago – they do great work with a lot of integrity.

  2. Laura: As it happens, there was much discussion of more podcasting on Friday night over beers at O’Hanlon’s.

    Dave was great to interview. And PARC is an impressive operation. I had no idea the UofR was such a hotbed for climate change research.

    Manganese: Thanks. And, indeed I did promise. At the end of the Sauchyn article in the paper we announced this would go up on Thursday. But there were some technical difficulties (of the Garage Band sucks variety) so it took me till Friday.
