Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all of our US-based friends!
In this episode, we bring back friend of the pod, rapper/producer/performer Lil Waterboi to discuss the holiday from a Canadian perspective.
First of all, did my fellow self-centered Americans even know that the US is not the only country with Thanksgiving?! There are actually 17 (!!) around the world, and Canada's is a month prior to ours.
We discuss the difference in importance of the holiday between our two countries, favorite/regional specialties, and also the level of acknowledgment (or lack thereof) each country places on the erasure of native people on this day.
AND, for all our Shang-chi fans out there, Lil Waterboi has something special for all y'all and is releasing a track inspired by the Asian representation in that movie! "Ten Rings" drops Tues 11/30 on Spotify, Apple Music, and everywhere there's streaming.
