I recently participated in an episode of “Les Oreilles d’Anne,” a radio show normally broadcast out of Nantes, France. Its two hosts, Florent Bouchardeau and Lisa Focken, were in Montreal at the tail end of a trip across Eastern Canada, in which they had specifically set out to find out about the country’s Acadian musical traditions and contemporary scene. Beginning at 16:32 you can hear my interview with Florent and Lisa on the subject of my ongoing project to create a graphic novel about the Battle of the Plains of Abraham.
When you’re not used to hearing your voice recorded, it’s common to think, “do I really sound like that?” In this case, however, I also find myself thinking “Bon sang! Is my French really that bad?”
