Dreams of a Summers Night
Robin hosted a podcast where he interviewed a collection of Dawsonites about how the pandemic changed their lives and and travel plans this past year. The podcast premiered on the local radio station CFYT and was available on the weekend of Arts Fest online. The interviews were accompanied with music befitting the conversations he had with Dawson locals and he added narratives about his own experiences with the pandemic. This now acts as a time capsule from this unique era in Dawson’s history.
