Craig Baird: Canadian History Ehx – The Sound Off Podcast


Fellow Canadian history buffs, rejoice: Craig Baird has a cool podcast and radio show.

Actually, that call to action may not resonate with very many of you, but that’s exactly why Craig Baird started his podcast. Canadian History Ehx is a show dedicated to proving that Canadian history isn’t nearly as boring as everyone thinks. Sure, it may not be as long and storied as European or Asian history. Sure, it doesn’t have the plethora of bloody battles that American history provides. But you’re doing your country and yourself a disservice if you think that means there aren’t tons of great stories in the Canadian history books.

Unfortunately though, as Craig and I discuss, you may have to do a bit of digging to find them on your own. Which is what makes Craig’s podcast so great: he does the digging for you. All you have to do is listen.

Craig talks to me about the most interesting parts of Canadian history, including tales of little-known Indigenous battles and would-be revolutionaries, from the country’s inception to present day. We also explore the failings of the Canadian education system in terms of actually teaching our history, as evidenced by Craig and I being taught completely different things about figures like Louis Riel. Depending on which province you grew up in, there’s a lot of important details you might have missed, but thankfully Craig is here to fill in the gaps.

A video of this episode is here. 

I mentioned that you should take a Canadian Citizenship test online to determine how little you know about Canadian History – embarrass yourself here.
