As the manager for The Pursuit of Happiness, The Watchmen, Adam Cohen and, of course, The Tragically Hip, Jake Gold has been an integral part of Canada’s music scene since 1985.

In a special Canada Day edition of Bonjour Chai, The CJN’s weekly current affairs podcast, Jake sits down with host Avi Finegold to share stories from the road, dissect The Hip’s spiritual side and explain how being Jewish has affected his career—and also how it hasn’t.
