Chatterbox #87 – A Canadian childhood

We were all kids once! But depending on where you live in the world, this can be quite a different experience. In this episode, Harp and Maura talk about the stuff that Canadian kids have to do, like chores, and the stuff that kids mostly want do, like the activities their parents sign them up for. They also talk about their own Canadian childhoods and reminisce about Saturday morning cartoons and playing hide-and-go-seek on their neighbourhood streets.
