Ep. 10: Liberal schemes redux: when the scheme intends to undermine organizing



What’s behind the Federation of Black Canadians? Sandy and Nora talk about everything they know about how the Liberals use, manipulate and influence organizations to help promote their own policies, and warn folks to be careful when an organization seems to be operating in lock-step with government.


Episode 9: Injustice and Tina Fontaine



In this podcast, Sandy and Nora talk about the Raymond Cormier trial, his acquittal, and the racist, colonial systems at play that consistently deny justice to Indigenous women and girls, like Tina Fontaine.

There can be no justice on stolen land.


Episode 8: From Me too Us: the limits of the Me Too movement



This episode explores the Me Too movement. From Patrick Brown, to the poisonous and pervasive sexism within politics, to broader movement issues and questions, we take a tour of the state of feminism today.

This issue deals with the matter with a mix of humour and anger: our best survival tools. Skip the first 15 minutes if you don’t want to hear about all the ways in which Patrick Brown’s press conference was a disaster.


Episode 7: No justice for Colten Boushie — Canada’s white supremacy problem



This episode starts off featuring Jade Tootootsis, Colten Boushie’s cousin, at a press conference following the acquittal of Gerald Stanley in Colten’s death. Jade reminds people to get organized and be mobilized to fight for justice.

Sandy and Nora talk about colonialism, injustice and how nothing will change if people don’t heed Jade’s call: that nothing is possible unless we organize ourselves.
