Podcast – What Makes us Human w/ Layton Burton


More than seven years ago, The Government of Saskatchewan changed the way the film industry operates in the province by replacing the film tax credit with a different funding model.

Layton Burton explains how this policy change nearly wiped out what was a multimillion dollar industry, what Saskatchewan needs to do to rebuild – but more importantly, he makes a case for the arts as part of the human condition.

We also tell a few stories about being journalists and we drink and discuss Rebellion Coconut Cream Stout.
