A podcast that has shone a spotlight on more than 40 communities throughout Canada is coming to Prescott.
At this week’s council meeting, town council agreed to partner with Craig Baird, the writer and host of “Canadian History Ehx,” to produce the podcast.
Baird says the show highlights “amazing stories to tell from Canada’s history” in the podcast’s description.
It’ll be featured on the Town of Prescott website, the show’s page, and at the Prescott museum.
Councillor Gauri Shankar says he loves the idea of the show as an “outside the box” way of inspiring younger residents to learn more about local history.
“People talk about how kids these days – or, young adults, I should say – they listen to podcasts all day long,” Shankar says. “So, I think it’s a great idea.”
Mayor Brett Todd says he’s excited to see how it compliments the museum.
“We definitely need some (audio and video) elements down there,” Todd says, “and I know we were talking about adding them. This is a great way to start this year off.”
