Pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong have been on the streets for almost three months now, and there are no signs of slowing down. The region is home to one of the largest Canadian diasporas in the world, but the ongoing protests have left some questioning whether or not they have a future there.Host Tamara Khandaker connects with Global’s Jeff Semple who’s currently on the ground. They walk through the latest from the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, and if the city could see a mass exodus.
Jack Letts — known to some as “Jihadi Jack” — is a British-Canadian accused of joining ISIS as a teenager. He is being held in a jail in northern Syria after being captured by Kurdish forces in 2014. But over the weekend, we learned that the U.K. has stripped him of his citizenship, meaning that the only country he now legally belongs to is Canada.Host Tamara Khandaker talks to extremism researcher Amarnath Amarasingam, assistant professor in the School of Religion at Queen’s University. They unpack the issue around Jack Letts’ citizenship and what the government should do about Canadians accused of being ISIS fighters in Syria — and if they should bring them here.
A 600-acre dairy farm located 70 kilometres southwest of Woodstock, New York. During a rain-soaked weekend in 1969, it became the temporary epicentre of peace and music that would come to define a cultural generation.Host Tamara Khandaker talks to radio broadcaster and “professional music geek” Alan Cross about the cultural impact of the iconic Woodstock music festival 50 years later. She’s also joined by Clay Borris, who was there in the crowd at age 19. He looks back at what Woodstock meant to him and so many others in his generation.
Weak economic data out of China and Germany. The U.S.-China trade war. An inverted yield curve: All headlines indicating that we could be heading into a global recession. Business publications around the world are warning about the possibility, but let’s unpack those stories.Host Tamara Khandaker is joined by money and consumer reporter Erica Alini of Global News. She gets us up to speed on what this all means for Canadians. Are we heading into a global recession, and is it all Donald Trump’s fault?
The federal ethics commissioner’s report on the SNC-Lavalin scandal is finally out. Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion has found that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau broke the Conflict of Interest Act. The report offers a bunch of new details about a series of interactions between senior PMO officials and Jody Wilson-Raybould and her top aides about the possibility of her taking external advice and reconsidering her position on not overriding the Director of Public Prosecutions.Host Tamara Khandaker connects with national online journalist Amanda Connolly from Global’s Ottawa bureau.

Avril Lavigne, Shania Twain, Yolanda Hadid, and Alec Baldwin — these are just a few names you might associate with Lyme disease. But it’s not just celebrities, more and more Canadians are being affected. Tick populations are rising across the country, and experts say, so is the rate of Lyme disease.Host Tamara Khandaker chats with investigative reporter Mary Beth Pfeiffer, author of Lyme: The First Epidemic of Climate Change. They discuss why Lyme disease is on the rise, if warming temperatures are to blame, and how you can protect yourself.
The dispute over Kashmir is one of the longest running conflicts in the world. It has been a region of dispute between India and Pakistan since 1947. Both countries claim the region, although each controls only a part of it. Both countries are also nuclear powers. Last week saw an escalation in this conflict when the Indian government stripped the Indian-controlled part of Kashmir of its special status. Now the disputed territory is under lockdown, and back in the international spotlight.Host Tamara Khandaker talks to Ayesha Ray, associate professor in the Department of Political Science at King's College, Pennsylvania. They walk through the history of tension in the region, how the fight over Kashmir has evolved, and why this conflict is coming up again now.
The Great Hack, directed by Karim Amer and Jehane Noujaim, is a new Netflix documentary about the Cambridge Analytica scandal and the dark side of online connectivity. Host Tamara Khandaker talks to associate professor David Carroll at Parsons School of Design, who was critical in taking Cambridge Analytica to task and was featured in the documentary. They discuss data collection in the 21st century and why The Great Hack is a must watch for Canadians. 
A Canada-wide manhunt for Bryer Schmegelsky and Cam MacLeod ended after 16 days. On Wednesday, RCMP said that they believed two bodies found on the shoreline of the Nelson River in Manitoba were those of the 19-year-old B.C. murder suspects. Police hoped this discovery could bring with it a sense of relief for the small northern communities that have been, for weeks, the focus of the investigation.Host Tamara Khandaker talks to Global journalist Crystal Goomansingh, who was on the ground covering the story in Manitoba. They discuss what we know so far, and what questions remain unanswered.
This past long weekend in Toronto saw a rash of gun violence, leaving 17 people with bullet wounds across the city. Police say the incidents are unrelated, but worrisome nonetheless.  Amidst this spike in shootings, Toronto’s mayor John Tory is renewing calls for a handgun ban.Host Tamara Khandaker speaks to Jooyoung Lee, an associate professor of sociology at the University of Toronto, and a faculty member within the Munk School of Global Affairs. They discuss why more information is needed regarding gun-related crime in Canada, the culture of gun ownership in this country, and whether or not an outright handgun ban would make a difference.
