This is the 44th episode in the premier season of SaskScapes! My guest, Olga Yarikov is originally from the Republic of Uzbekistan and now finds her home in Humboldt, SK. Olga shares memories of her childhood in Uzbekistan, her creative inspirations, and the effects of political unrest on her life’s path. Now that she has found a new sense of “home” in Humboldt, Olga finds herself open to expressing her creativity once again, drawing from the best of her past memories, and eagerly diving into new experiences. Through the eyes of a newcomer, we are reminded of what makes our Province and it’s people so special.

SaskScapes continues our celebration of Saskatchewan's rich cultural diversity. We are fortunate to have folks originally from the Republic of Mauritius now living in our Province, and in this episode I talk with the members of the Sega Band based in Humboldt, SK. Join us as we learn a bit about the Mauritian culture, especially the music and dance. And wait until you hear these folks give us their impressions when they first saw snow! Thank you to Clifton, Wensley, Olivierre, Gilbert, Fredric, Eddy and Chloe.

Amanda Amundrud is the founding owner of The Root Community Emporium in Lloydminster Saskatchewan. The Root is not just a quirky old building, it’s a “happening" where people from all walks of life gather to share stories, knowledge, eat delicious locally sourced food, …basically “plug in” and connect with each other. On this Thanksgiving weekend I hang out with Amanda at The Root, and then attend the annual "Harvest Lantern Walk".

Saskatoon's "Rosebud Burlesque Club" has been setting fire to the wheat fields and steaming up the landscape! Headmistress Cheripop Purr has been the driving force behind the neo-burlesque movement in Saskatchewan. A few members of the troupe join us in what an eye-opening, brave, and very fun look into this art form. The neo-burlesque movement is putting the "tease" back in striptease - making a bold statement, sometimes political, and is a unifying force between people of all genders. A truly fun way to welcome in our 40th episode!

Privacy, freedom, a close relationship with nature and animals, and good old fashioned work ethic all contribute to the woman Kathleen has become today. Dedicated to making a difference where she can, she has been a strong advocate for women’s rights, mental health, politics, and more.
