Ep 92: “Oil and Men Pt 2: Digging in The Dirt” w/ Dylan Rhys Howard

The way Albertans reconcile with the Oil industry is a major way in which Albertans see their own identity, and the people who work in the oil patches are also in the crossfires and have been for ages. The rates of suicides went up, the rates of negative mental health have also gone up.  Today we talk to Dylan Rhys Howard, one of the directors for the documentary “Digging in the Dirt” which talks about these things.

These are the un-talked about consequences of the oil industry. Un-talked about until recently.
