Oct 13, 2018

This week on the podcast, author Michael Barclay talks to Terry David Mulligan about his latest book: The Never-ending Present: The Story of Gord Downie and the Tragically Hip.

“This is not just a story of a band, I think is a story about culture and how we talk about it,” says Michael about his new book. Michael tells us about Gord’s resistance to being considered “Captain Canada”, how The Tragically Hip remained intact and vital for more than 30 years, and the celebration that was The Hip’s Man Machine Poet Tour. Plus, Barclay reflects on one of Downie’s final solo releases Secret Path, his entry into artistic activism, and how the band’s music bound the country together.
