Welcome to Season 2 of Newfoundpod. This episode I explain why my hiatus ended up being so long, and I tell you about Al Clouston.

Al Clouston, also known as Uncle Al, was a folklorist, a storyteller and a humourist. He started out as a salesman, and after he retired in the seventies, he released several books and albums of Newfoundland humour that he had been collecting since the age of 17.
