A raunchy ride through working class,1950s Jewish Canada. From Winnipeg to Vancouver to Toronto- Heshy Azberg finds sex, God and the blues in this coming-of-age tale. (Yiddish & coarse language warning!)

Shtetl Special: Justin Trudeau on Chanukah and the oil sands. Manishtana on being Black &Jewish and on Ferguson. Plus, a cross-Canada road tripped fueled entirely by veggie oil. Happy Chanukah!! Let there be (environmentally friendly sources of) light.

Mostly tons of unexpected Jewish music, and a little talk with former president of Green Party of Canada re.: Gaza/Israel. But mostly music!

Howard Adler is Jewish and Indigenous (Anishinaabe). Read What I Learned in School, Guilt Shirt and Cold Feet a sampling of his award-winning poetry. And, watch Honour Song, a short video honouring Native Americans who fought in WWII.

On this episode of Shtetl we talk with actress/director Jennifer Podemski and filmmaker and writer Howard Adler. Both are First Nations (Ojibwe) and Jewish. This episode is part of Indigenous Shtetl: A Special Edition.
