Episode 82 – Ok Boomer?

In this episode, Sandy and Nora break down the sentiment behind Ok Boomer and challenge people to think about how to make our campaigns and organizing work into multi-generational spaces that can bring people together and make our work stronger.

Episode 81 – Cancel culture is not a thing

Last week, the Toronto Public Library held an event that violated its own policy to not allow events that would have the effect of discriminating against someone based on gender identity or gender expression. In this episode, Sandy and Nora talk about the politics of so-called free speech, actual free speech and why people who are afraid of cancel culture are actually just afraid to defend their arguments.

Update — Nora incorrectly stated that the Murphy event in Vancouver was cancelled. SFU cancelled the talk but the Pan Pacific hosted the event anyway: https://bc.ctvnews.ca/protesters-gather-at-gender-identity-speaker-s-talk-despite-location-switch-1.4667969
