The Poet Laureate — Ep. 21

Julie Pellisier-Lush is P.E.I.’s poet laureate. But she’s also an actor, a mother, and a proud Mi’kmaq knowledge keeper.
Today we’ll get to know Julie’s background before getting into life as the poet laureate.
We talk about her Dad’s storytelling, other positive role models, and being in a hurry to grow up too fast.
And stick around after the interview for this month’s Progress Report about balancing life as a podcaster and working journalist.
