The Champlain Society is thrilled to announce the launch of its official podcast channel, Witness to Yesterday! This series of podcasts furthers the Society's mission of deepening awareness of Canada’s documentary past and of the people who created it.

Hosted by Patrice Dutil, Greg Marchildon and Kenna Turcotte, each podcast examines a particular document, the people behind it, its significance and its relevance to today. The podcasts are recorded in the Allan Slaight Radio Institute at Ryerson University by students in the department of Radio-Television Arts at Ryerson University.
