It’s a busy month of February for the arts scene of Edmonton and What It Is podcast as the crew tackles a world premiere play from Matthew MacKenzie and the insanely all-encomapsing franken-festival Chinook Series.

Then we rip across the street to chat up Murray Utas, Nasra Adem and Kristi Hansen about Chinook Series which features Black Arts Matter, Expanse Movement Arts and a whole lot more. We TRY to touch on all the juicy details in both projects but a podcast is only so long – you’ll have to get out and see it all for yourself. Get it in your ear holes!
