Hot Docs Podcast Festival: See your favourite podcasts live on stage.

It's the show Dan Savage calls "consistently wonderful," the subversive and irreverent history podcast: The Secret Life of Canada is returning to Hot Docs Podcast Festival!

Join hosts Falen Johnson and Leah-Simone Bowen for a live recording with comedians Kris Siddiqi (The Second City, The Boys) and Brandon Hackett (The Beaverton, Run the Burbs) and featuring live music and foley by Andrew Penner.

They’ll dig into historical thieves, stupid robberies, discontinued board games, every 'Canadian Barbie' ever made (there are some seriously questionable ones) and of course colonialism, because this show aims to make you laugh and cry.

Buckle up for all the beautiful, terrible and weird history of a land some now call ‘Canada.’

Tickets: $33 (Members from $29.70)
