Podcaster and indigenous media critic James Leask returns to the Math of You. Along the course of this conversation, we discuss the smell of a Canadian Tire store, how authenticity in food culture is both important and a fool’s game, and Emmylou Harris, who is  always ready to be back, because she never really left.
