About »People of Yellowknife«

In 2018 I lived in Yellowknife for three months. During this time I was astonished of how different this place is to what I am used to in Germany, my homecountry. The city is surrounded by a vast, rocky landscape, the sound of float planes is omnipresent and the first snow arrives as early as mid-September.

For this show, I’ve had conversations with six locals: about their work, their way of living and the hard times of their lives.

A flying ravenYou wonder why the logo of the podcast shows a raven? That’s simply because I haven’t seen more ravens in any other place than in Yellowknife. So for me the raven became iconic for the city.
