Episode 30 – Doug Ford, sex ed resistance, gender and effective trolling

Part 2 of Sandy and Nora’s live show, hosted by the YWCA in Hamilton. The Q&A covered many topics and Sandy and Nora share their thoughts about resisting Doug Ford, fighting the new/old sex education curriculum in Ontario, mental health, how to effectively mess with trolls, pop culture and how the current war to uphold the gender binary is the most important right-wing attack we need to engage in, right now.

You don’t need to have heard Part 1 to thoroughly enjoy Part 2!

Episode 27 – Dutty Doug Ford

Doug Ford’s campaign of shock and awe is well underway. Sandy and Nora talk about some of the changes, and how Ford’s “For the People” rhetoric leaves behind anyone who isn’t white and male and healthy and rich.

Since we recorded, Ford cancelled all Ministry work on Truth and Reconciliation curriculum and a $100 million fund to fix schools. Students, teachers : not “people” under Ford’s regime.

Episode 25 – job losses at Rogers Media and a master class in organizing

Sandy and Nora look at the right way and the wrong way to respond to the news that Rogers Media has laid off one-third of their digital media workers (first third of the episode). Then, they offer a master class in organizing: what do we mean when we say we must organize, and how can we collectively be as effective as possible?
