INSIDE THE VILLAGE: Be safe out there, snowmobilers

This week on the podcast: Everything you need to know about snowmobiling in Ontario — including how the COVID-19 pandemic helped fuel a new generation of riders

​Welcome back to Inside the Village, a one-of-a-kind podcast where all news is local — and no topic is off-limits.

On this week's episode: Winter can't come fast enough for Ontario snowmobilers.

It is the middle of Snowmobile Safety Week, but most trails in the province still aren't even open yet, the result of an unusually late start to winter.

In the meantime, we kick off Season 3 of the podcast by catching up with Lisa Stackhouse, the director of programs and partnerships at the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs. We talk safety, climate change — and why the pandemic might have been the best thing to ever happen to the sport.

Also on the podcast: Village Media is expanding again. Get the scoop on where we're going.

Hosted by Scott Sexsmith and Michael Friscolanti, the Editor-in-Chief of Village Media, Inside the Village is a news and current affairs podcast that provides a weekly window into some of the best local journalism from across our chain of Ontario newsrooms. Produced by Derek Turner, the program also explores bigger-picture issues that impact people across the province.

Every episode is available HERE. If you prefer the audio version, it is available wherever you find your favourite podcasts.
