WR562: Roy Mexted

It’s weird to think of Churchill, Man., as a hot spot for anything but polar bears, but I had a great interview with [Roy Mexted](http://www.churchillentertainment.com/) — the second musician from Down Under (shoutout to Rob Knaggs) to fall in love with northern Manitoba I’ve had on the podcast. It's an interesting conversation about the appeal of the Arctic, Roy's Smiling Like a Sundog album, creating music and video content celebrating Churchill’s unique culture, and much more!
