Episode 39 – Sandy and Nora live in Toronto Q&A part 2

In part 3 of 3 of Sandy and Nora’s Nov. 2 live show in Toronto, the audience exchange continues. It starts with a critical question: how can activists navigate spaces like a university, when the university claims to want to fight oppression while at the same time, reinforcing it? There is also a discussion about the necessity of using moments of success to fight for more and mobilize others, and how that even when a campaign seems like an impossible victory, the long-game tells us that nothing is impossible.

Episode 38 – Toronto live show Q&A

Should progressives engage with the mainstream media? How do we make space for families in our movements? How do we gauge success? In Part 2 of 3 of our live event in Toronto, Sandy and Nora cover a wide range of topics that are mostly unrelated to the Munk Debates. You don’t need to listen to Episode 37 to enjoy this, but we recommend you do anyway!

Stay tuned for Episode 39 – the second half of the Q&A.

 

Episode 37 – Sandy and Nora vs. The Munk “Debate”

Live from Toronto on Nov. 2, Sandy and Nora take on The Munk Debate. From Frum and Bannon to Bay Street’s continued colonial exploitation of locations across the globe for mining, they tie together extremely obvious links that everyone in the mainstream media somehow forgot the week prior to this debate.

Special thanks to the Black Liberation Collective at Ryerson, volunteers at CJRU and Noah for capturing this sound, staff at the Ryerson Student Centre and the folks who arrived early enough to help us set up and take down the chairs. It was greatly appreciated.

This is part one of two parts. The second part, the Q&A, is Episode 38.
