"Never ask someone to go somewhere that you're not willing to go with them." Lydia Toorenburgh is a Cree-Metis Masters student in Anthropology at the University of Victoria, with a focus on Indigenous Audiovisual Research Methods. Tom and Jeremiah called her up to learn about her studies, the aesthetic and ethical significance of this type of storytelling, and vulnerability it brings out at every step. Then, we answer a question from one of our Patreon supporters, and go deep into why we think it's important to take time every episode for a land/territory acknowledgement, the reasoning behind the specific language around that, and the heavy history and reality at the root of it all. Here are a few film recommendations from Lydia!
