SIX NATIONS – The What’s Goin’ On Podcast, also known as the WGO Podcast is one of the primary podcasts of Real People’s Media. Our first two seasons were focused on following Kanenhariyo, a Mohawk man who’s facing two years in jail and a $620,000 fine for moving tobacco products between Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory and Six Nations of the Grand River. In the first two seasons, the WGO Podcast focused on Kanenhariyo telling his story and interviewing various elders and experts knowledgable about the Indigenous tobacco industry.

Season 3 of the podcast begins in video form with Kanenhariyo lying in a Picton hospital bed with all the symptoms of a major heart attack. Not surprisingly, podcast hosts Kanenhariyo and Tom Keefer are focussing on issues of health and wellness this season.

Legacy 420, an Indigenous Medical Marijuana dispensary on Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory are the sponsors of Season 3 of the WGO Podcast. We thank them for their support.
