Last summer, allegations of sexual misconduct were levelled against prominent Iranian-Canadian artist Aydin Aghdashloo during Iran's #MeToo moment. More than a hundred powerful and influential Iranian men were called out for allegedly committing sexual harassment and rape. Journalist Farnaz Fassihi broke the Aghdashloo story for the New York Times, and she joins Jesse to talk about the allegations, as well as the context in which Iran’s #MeToo movement is playing out. Then Soudeh Ghasemi, president of the board of the Iranian Canadian Congress, discusses why the Aghdashloo allegations have been slow to provoke a reaction in some sections of the Iranian-Canadian community.

Since we last spoke to Karl Dockstader and Sean Vanderklis about the occupation of a development site in Caledonia, Ontario known as 1492 Land Back Lane, tensions between land defenders and local authorities have flared. At the end of October, an Ontario Superior Court judge granted the developers a permanent injunction against the encampment. A violent confrontation between protesters and the OPP erupted. The One Dish, One Mic co-hosts return with an update from the site, and to explore why federal government inaction just makes things worse. After this episode was recorded, on Friday Nov. 13, 1492 Landback Lane issued a press release: “The Federal Government reached out to Land Defenders during the summer, as well as to the Six Nations Elected Council (SNEC) and the Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chiefs Council (HCCC) to begin discussions on a negotiations table, but have not updated their position for more than 50 days. Six Nations people continue to demand a real response to the situation from the Federal Government.”  Later the same day, the office of Carolyn Bennett, Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations, also released a statement. “Our government is committed to continuing to work collaboratively addressing Six Nations historical claims and land rights issues. (…) Federal government officials have been in regular communication with representatives of Six Nations Elected Chief and Council, Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chiefs Council and Ontario throughout this process with regard to our offer to meet. We look forward to meeting with the community at the earliest opportunity.” At the time of publication, no meeting or negotiation has been announced.

RCMP charges a podcast star with not being a terrorist. And Edmonton radio host chooses the wrong put-down. Al Jazeera English journalist and filmmaker Laila Al-Arian co-hosts. On Wednesday, Sept. 30 The New York Times issued a statement: "While the uncertainty about Abu Huzayfah’s story was explored directly in episodes of Caliphate that featured him, his arrest and the allegations surrounding it have raised new and important questions about him and his motivations. We’re undertaking a fresh examination of his history and the way we presented him in our series. We will have more to say when we complete that effort." This episode is brought to you by Audible.ca and Keep It! CORRECTION: In this episode, co-host Laila Alarian says that in terms of the country’s total population, the number of Iraqis killed in the Iraq War would be the equivalent of nine to 19 million dead Americans. In fact, the number of Iraqi civilians killed in the aftermath of the 2003 invasion would scale to between one and 8.3 million Americans.

Why is there never any coverage given to the elected leaders of the indigenous people, and only that of the hereditary leaders, or the RCMP?

I have just discovered "Canadaland" and really, really enjoy listening to what , at least, seems truthful, sound investigative reporting on subjects that concern me. In general I give little credence to most media. This seems truly Canadian in my mind.

www.cfur.ca is a statiin out of unbc. i feel like a member of a secret club who applied for the license and started a radio station. CFUR-FM began with 5 watts and now has 500 wts. it was streaming over 1 yr before it was broadcast legal.

So Jesse's listeners write to tell him not to continually rant about a media niche topic, then he decides to make you listen to another rant about that niche topic before getting to his guest. Man, just do a separate episode on that rant, so the rest of us can just skip it on our playlists.

Having researched the situation around Cuties a bit more, I'm troubled that Canadaland is so uncritical of it. Yes, the purpose may have been to spread awareness, but the child actors in the movie cannot legally consent to some of the scenes they performed. Plenty of movies tackle the same issues with more sensitivity. Regardless of the movie's value, those children were exploited and Netflix is profitting.

Wake up people. The Communist Party is BAD. Communism does not work, and always just leads to another form of dictatorship.

I like Canadaland and find it really valuable as a news source. However, in the last few months, I've noticed the episodes take on a bitter and aggressive tone that that really detracts from the reporting. I sympathize with the anger, but it can make it very hard to keep listening.

Hi, I keep having a hard time understanding all this narrative. can you have Sandy give her thoughts on what differs Floyd's murder from Tony Timpa murder a few years back. It looks the same to me but I'm intrigued at her thoughts on both murders. thanks

Love this show. Such important, deep journalism work being done on Canadaland and all other shows like ThunderBay, Cool Mules and Commons.

It's not just Blackrock that killed the project. It is the low oil price, plain and simple. The low price makes the investment, risk, and effort of Teck's expensive project unattractive.

Jesse keeps on saying "the media says" this and "the media says" that. Well first of all, Canadaland IS part of the media. Secondly, many people also feel that it IS the hereditary chiefs that get all the media attention. Why does Jesse feel that monarchs views count more than elected officials?

I'm disappointed at how biased this episode is. Is Jesse just trying to justify his own comments? Why is this episode so anti-Canada?

Trudeau's framing around himself as being patient or out of patience with this is insulting to the protesters in and of itself. it sounds so condescending to me.
