In which we have Native American, Himanish Goel, join us to talk about the Trickster figure as a way to open on a central part of many Western Indigenous myths and British Columbia generally! We use Eden Robinson's Son of a Trickster to help us with some of the themes. Somewhat relevant tangents include Loki and To Kill A Mockingbird.
