CBC's first podcast in East Cree

In each episode, hosts Betsy Longchap and Mary Shem delve into the origins, meanings, and dialectical differences of specific vocabulary on a different theme, from paranormal activity to new technology to how to describe drizzle.

A Tribe Called Geek

A Tribe Called Geek is a nerd-culture podcast that prides itself on its “Indigenerdity.” The ATCG website covers everything from comics, STEM, cosplaying, art, entertainment and more. Hosts Johnnie Jae and Jackie Malstrom interview fellow Indigenerds and discuss the intersections of Indigeneity and geek culture.

Revolutions per minute

The Indigenous music hub Revolutions per Minute hosts a podcast dedicated to giving a voice to the music, stories, and experiences of Indigenous artists from around the world by exploring a place, idea, or tradition that inspires our songs and our people. This podcast is a blend of social and cultural discussion and Indigenous pop culture.

Metis in Space

 Molly Swain and Chelsea Vowel are two Métis women hailing from Alberta who are unabashedly obsessed with science fiction. Together, they host Otipêyimisiw-iskwêwak kihci-kîsikohk, or, Métis in Space: a podcast where the two women sit down with a bottle of wine, a decolonial attitude, and an exceptionally nerdy sci-fi movie or television episode that includes Indigenous people. 

The Henceforward

The Henceforward’ is a podcast that started as part of a graduate course called Decolonization, Settler Colonialism and Antiblackness taught by Eve Tuck at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto.

The Henceforward considers relationships between Indigenous Peoples and Black Peoples on Turtle Island, and how they have been influenced by anti-blackness and settler colonialism. In turn, the team behind the podcast looks into collaboration opportunities between the two groups, and what their lived experiences are like.

Red Man Laughing

 Red Man Laughing is hosted, created and produced by Anishinaabe comedian Ryan McMahon. Ryan’s storytelling comedy style is fast paced, loose & irreverent as he explores the good, the bad & the ugly between Indian Country & the mainstream on RML.

RML dedicated its fifth season entirely to the theme of reconciliation, with conversations about the land, youth, education, the Indian Act, and more. Many episodes contain interviews with notable Indigenous personalities, and generally hilarious rants from Ryan. Including, in the latest season, a rant about ugly babies.

Native Currents

'Native Currents is a podcast hosted by Anishinaabe academic Steven Vanloffeld and Mi’kmaq lawyer and Glenn Wheeler. This podcast presents a critical review of events and goings-on in Indian Country from critiques of the Canadian government to unpacking racist, colonialist systems that affect Indigenous people in Canada.


 Unreserved is CBC Radio’s space for the Indigenous community, culture, and conversation. Host Rosanna Deerchild introduces listeners to the storytellers, culture makers and community shakers from across the country. Bonus: the podcast features music by Indigenous artists, as well.

MIssing and Murdered

Connie Walker’s eight-part Missing and Murdered podcast traces the story of Alberta Williams, a 24-year-old woman from the Gitanyow Band in British Columbia who was murdered in 1989. Walker had received a tip from a former RCMP officer who investigated the case back in the 90s, leading her to follow leads on the case that had never been solved.

Walker is Cree, and carries out the podcast with heavy input from Alberta Williams’ family, and keeping her perspective as an Indigenous woman at the forefront. The podcast is meant to bring awareness to the epidemic of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls in Canada, while telling the story of Alberta as a human being, robbed of her life at a young age. This podcast contains sensitive material that some listeners may find disturbing. 

Season 2 traces the story of Cleo. In Finding Cleo, Connie Walker continues her investigations into Missing and Murdered Indigenous women
