Sidebar, is a monthly podcast produced by The Brunswickan and CHSR. Listen below, or subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Google Play Music, Stitcher, Podbean, TuneIn Radio or Soundcloud. We also air a few times per month on CHSR 97.9 FM.

This month's episode is the first of a two-part series on the state of Indigenous languages in New Brunswick. We start off by looking at how decades of English-only policies have resulted in a near dissaperance of native speakers. We speak with Imelda Perley, a Wolastoquey elder, and Nancy Harn, a Mi'kmaq woman from Eel River Bar First Nation.
