Canadian Sociology Podcast Episode

I was interviewed as part of a panel discussion on Canadian Sociology for a pilot podcast episode of “International Perspectives on Sociology” run by Joe Cohen of CUNY.  Rima Wilkes, Howard Ramos, Dale Ballucci, and I really enjoyed the chance to chat with Joe about Canadian Sociology, its differences from its American neighbour, and some of the the people and work being done in Canada that excite us.  Have a listen here:
