BeCause & Effect #29: Fred Penner

Children, Youth & Families

Today’s episode features one of the greatest entertainers of our generation, actor, author, singer/songwriter and keynote speaker, Fred Penner.

Mr. Penner is gearing up for his upcoming cross-Canada tour celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Cat Came Back, released back in 1980. For full tour details, visit fredpenner.com

He joined us via video chat from beautiful British Columbia, and we talked not only about his legendary career, but also about the current media landscape, mindfulness and meditation, reconciliation, and so much more.

This episode is also on The Winnipeg Foundation’s YouTube channel, so you can watch the video of my conversation with Mr. Penner.
