I loved this episode! being from Ontario myself (but the north western part), I love hearing about different places I haven’t been (I don’t know if you’ve looked at a map of Ontario lately, but its HUGE!).

I just had to comment on the poutine part, I almost died laughing when:
1- you said you’d never heard of poutine (thats almost blasphemous here!); and
2- that you thought poutine was ‘Putin’!

Thanks for another great podcast (I am working through all the ones I’ve missed), this one just made my day!
