A Tale of Two Selbys
We are John Hastings (CAN) and Tim FitzHigham FRSA FRGS (UK): broadcasters and now podcasters. We have been generously supported by the above organisations to make a series of video/audio podcasts that aim to open communication between Selby, Ontario, Canada and Selby, Yorkshire, England. The two places share a name, our aim is to find out what else they have in common. In a time when people are locked down and communicating less, we aim to see if we can start a new communication, exchange ideas, create connections and provide an opportunity for two communities to learn about the history that may bind them together. Watch and or Listen to the Journey of two dumb friends doing a nice thing.
