When one lives above the only post office in town…

Mark and Tejas at Iqaluit’s post office with their Amazon bounty.

… one tends to notice what people are coming and going with! And that’s what inspired my latest story for Spark on CBC Radio One. It’s all about how Iqalummiut are using Amazon Prime to offset the high costs of living in the North.

You can see some photos and listen to the story here.

It was a wonderful summer in Iqaluit, reading the news and doing some reporting for CBC Nunavut. But for now, I’m back in Calgary for a new year teaching at Mount Royal University and starting some new podcasting projects… updates soon!
