Don Cherry drafts his first Quillette essay: “The Day the Social Media Mob Came for Me.” Also, opinion writing in Canada post-Margaret Wente turns out to be mostly the same. Freelance sports writer and Burn It All Down podcast co-host Shireen Ahmed joins us. This episode is supported by Freshbooks, Audible, Hover and listeners like you. Please consider becoming a monthly supporter.
Covering the extreme right has become its own beat in Canada. But is there a thin, blurry line between coverage and giving a platform to those with hateful views? Steven Zhou joins.  The episode is brought to you by FreshBooks, Endy, Sock Club, Hardboiled, and listeners like you. Please consider becoming a monthly supporter on Patreon.
A national news media start-up hires then fires its staff in a month. Also, Elizabeth May has harsh parting shots for the media. Freelancer Sarah Hagi co-hosts (and spills the tea on FreshDaily) This episode is brought to you by WealthBar, Squarespace, The New Yorker, HelloFresh, and listeners like you. Please consider becoming a monthly Patreon supporter.   CORRECTION: In this episode, Jesse says that on the day the Toronto Star/Associated Press story about unsafe drinking water in 11 Canadian cities broke, the Globe and Mail was among the news sites that did not promptly pick up the story. This is inaccurate: the Globe ran the AP’s story before 8am on the morning of Monday, November 4th. We regret the error.  
Meghan Bell wants Canada to tax the rich. Of course, that belief would be a lot easier to explain at the dinner table if her own family wasn’t massively wealthy. Bell joins to talk about her recent piece in The Walrus that pulls back the curtain on what it’s like to grow up rich and why Canada needs an aggressive wealth tax.
The New York Times’ Canada bureau chief goes up to visit an Inuit community three times so she must know what she’s talking about… right? Also, podcasting is getting way too popular. Thunder Bay host Ryan McMahon co-hosts. This episode is brought to you by Freshbooks, Audible, Article and listeners like you. Please consider becoming a monthly supporter.

Major announcement about what's next for Canadaland on this episode.  After that: Had It Coming is Robyn Doolittle's new book, which asks "what's fair in the age of #MeToo?" Fair to whom? Sparks fly as Jesse questions the premise, and Robyn pushes at Jesse's idea about the media's role. We just launched our annual crowdfunding drive. We need your support. Click here to have a look.
Thank God, it's over - last sound off about how dull the 2019 election coverage was, we promise. Plus, StarMetro journalists cry fake news at activists pretending climate propaganda is the real thing. Writer and climate activist from 350.org Cam Fenton co-hosts. This episode is brought to you by Babbel, Endy, Article, and listeners like you. Please consider becoming a monthly supporter. You can check out the 350.org's Our Times here.
Last month APTN reported that 102 Indigenous children died in Ontario’s child welfare system. It’s a tragic and infuriating look at how the system fails Indigenous children and puts their lives at risk. It’s also a story about unconscionable inequality in a system that is supposed to protect vulnerable children. Cindy Blackstock joins to talk about that story and about taking the government to court on behalf of the rights of Indigenous children.  The episode is brought to you by FreshBooks, Squarespace, and listeners like you.

The CBC sues the Conservative Party of Canada for copying them! Plus, Toronto journalists and writers push back on the kind of space public libraries should be. Wikimedia Chief of Staff Ryan Merkley co-hosts. This episode is brought to you by Freshbooks, Endy, Babbel, and listeners like you. Please consider becoming one of our monthly supporters. Also, come hang out with us for election night if you're in Toronto!

Are you f*cking serious Canadaland? You're saying that a vigil for a 13 year old murdered Chinese girl is wrong, and that her life should NOT be remembered? This is the 3rd time that Canadaland has mentioned this murder only in passing not that the murder was bad, but rather how it might make Justin Trudeau look bad for fast tracking the murderer into Canada.

Wow 40 minutes of listening to a spoiled rich brat bitching about how tough it is growing up rich. What a waste of an episode.

I do not think anti-profanity is simply patriarchy. Many people, often women, are bothered by swearing because it's the acknowledged language of anger and aggression. Some people will lose out on important information if the delivery is hostile. Dr. Gunter can obviously speak however she wants though and her work is important.

the right lost the battle against homosexuals so they decided to go for an easier target, transexuals

From my experience of calling off the voting and going anywhere else but to the ballots, this is the worst idea ever. that's what causes trumps and other morons get elected. never ever do that...

if you don't want to glorify this career choice then why do you ask who the coolest person was that the journalist had ever met and talk with such obvious relish of the pride of the man who first donned the jacket of his gang?

I will never forget her interview with Kurt Vonnegut a couple of years before his death.Bush era, she said that a lot of Canadians supported Bush. He told her to go jump in a lake.

This is the second time I've listened to this podcast. This one was not good. I'm happy to try a third one to support Canadian political commentary but if you are trying to piss Albertans off, congrats you succeeded.

Thanks for the April Fools joke. I had my doubts about it when it came up, but you made me laugh on my morning walk.

I enjoyed this pod cast you all came across as smart and concerned... I think their agenda is... Is this journalism... And they won't be confused with the free speach police... I found it informative. Thanks
