This episode covers white male rage, from the unspeakable horror inflicted by killers like Bruce MacArthur and Alexandre Bissonnette, to the structural violence inflicted by mainstream politicians — and how Maxime Bernier sits in the middle of this continuum. Bernier’s political success hinges on his ability to capture the far right — Sandy and Nora explore what this means, and what we must resist.
Clothes make the man, so the saying goes. That’s the underlying philosophy to who should wear what in our halls of power. In this episode, Sandy and Nora talk about women who are bucking the political status quo, and why in Quebec, a t-shirt has been enough to start a political earthquake among the province’s gatekeepers.
In this episode, Nora and Sandy debunk the racist rhetoric that surround so-called “anchor babies” and eviscerate the Toronto Star for publishing a report full of technical issues, on its front page.
This is Sandy and Nora’s first live taping. Sponsored by the YWCA-Hamilton Feminist Popular Education, Sandy and Nora talk about what it’s like to be a woman with an opinion, online.

Listen to Part 1 to hear about how Sandy and Nora have navigated threats, attacks, stalkers and trolls over more than a decade of life online.
Sandy and Nora dive into the Toronto attack and what we know of the world that Alek Minassian is thought to have been a part of. From MRAs to real-life violence, why don’t men believe women, and where are men in responding to other men?
