Library and Archives Canada releases its latest podcast episode, "Shot Stone: Curling in Canada"

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is releasing its latest podcast episode, "Shot Stone: Curling in Canada"

Curling could be considered the unofficial national sport of Canada. In this episode, we will explore the game's evolution, its development as an organized sport, and the creation of a Canadian curling culture. We will also let you know about the extensive collection of LAC materials related to the history and the development of curling in Canada. Our guest for this episode is Warren Hansen. Mr. Hansen is not only a curling historian and expert, but a Canadian men's curling champion. He and his Alberta team, skipped by Hector Gervais, won the 1974 Brier. Recently retired, Mr. Hansen worked for the Canadian Curling Association since 1974.
