Our Emerging Scholar & CDSN Capstone Laureate Mathieu Landriault [27:30], discuss his research on Canadian media in the Arctic. Our Feature Interview this week is with CDSN’s co-director Andrea Charron [36:15] where she and Steve discuss the Permanent Joint Board on Defence (PJBD), NORAD and Deter, Detect, Defeat.
