Ryan McMahon & the First Story App

 

 

Ojibwe/Metis comedian/actor/writer Ryan McMahon joined Indigenous Waves for an interview in anticipation of his October 12th comedy show in Toronto. Ryan spoke to us about taping his first one-hour standup comedy special for CBC, how to be funny without reinforcing stereotypes, podcasting, comedy as a tool to push back and create space for Indigenous peoples, and the UnReserved Tour.

 

Also on the show, Amber Sandy and June Allison from the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto joined us to talk about an interactive, multimedia app that they are developing, called First Story, which will help map the Aboriginal history of Toronto.  Please note that this show was also the Friends of CIUT 89.5 fm Membership Drive.

 

This show originally aired on October 15th, 2012.
