free speech

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.

 

 

Episode 32 – Doug Ford attacks free speech on campus

At the end of August, the Ford government issued a directive to Ontario colleges and universities that threatened sanctions if institutions didn’t pass free speech policies that were favourable to his government. Sandy and Nora break down the policy and ask: how and who are resisting this attack on institutional autonomy?
