Canadian Online Publishing Awards: Two QUB podcasts stand out

From his first races to his tragic death, walk in the footsteps of a legend that transcends the world of motor racing.

The podcast “Par pure vengeance” also earns a place in the Best Podcast category media pane. Normand Dubé was known as “the pilot of the stars”.
