Collier podcasts

Here is the podcast of the talk Dave Collier gave to Alex Fitch in the Imperial War Museum last summer to promote Chimo. It can also be found here and here. Did you know Dave has a new book out?

Speaking of Saskatchewan, I just love this cartoon which appeared in the Saskatoon StarPheonix in 1995....
