The Library and Archives of Canada (LAC) is a great treasury of historical and contemporary knowledge. This page features a series of podcasts produced by the LAC, of which there are currently twenty eight. Detailing both the services offered by the LAC as well as highlights from its plentiful holdings, listeners will find much to enjoy. Recent episodes have examined the possibilities of ancestry research using the LAC's archives, a treatment of the fire that ripped through the vast complex on Parliament Hill on February 3, 1916, and a fascinating expose on the sport of curling, which was invented in late medieval Scotland, popularized in Canada throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, and finally became an official Olympic sport in 1998. Other topics include poppies, the photographer Yousuf Karsh, comic books, and the Canadian flag, among others. Podcasts range in length from about 20 minutes to approximately 40 minutes and interested readers may subscribe with RSS or iTunes to automatically receive new episodes.
