A few weeks ago I received an email from a Mr. Pruner, a math teacher from Argyle Secondary School, who was impressed when he found out that Dan Snaith from Caribou is not only a great musician but also holds a PhD in mathematics.
Mr. Pruner the math teacher then suggested we do a podcast digging in to other Canadian musicians with higher formal education, and the first-ever University of Radio 3 Higher Listening Podcast was born!
We'll play you highly decorated brianiacs like Caribou, Shad, Chromeo, Matthew Barber, Slow Down Molasses, Plumtree, and possibly the most impressive scholar of them all, Buffy Sainte-Marie, and I'll tell you exactly what they hold.
Earbuds in, volume up, smiles wide!
