MacLean's federal election platform guideCBC Vote Compassgovotecanada.caPodcast: Safe SpaceSUPPORT THIS PODCAST BY BUYING A KO-FIOn today’s episode I’m re-re-rejoined by Justine Sones. This time, we’re stepping away from our usual Motherhood Unfiltered lens and bringing you politico feels. That’s right. We’re talking about the upcoming Canadian federal election.To begin, we discuss strategic voting and the super block of Gen Z and Millenial voters and from there we focus on two platform topics; the environment and indigenous affairs. Needless to say, if we tried to break down each parties’ platforms we’d be recording until the elections.Following this, Justine takes us through the roles of emotion and logic in arguments so that you have tools to hear what politicians are actually saying and not get stuck in the roundabout fallacies.To close out our chat, Justine leaves us with a fitting poem by Nikita Gill.

We discuss the why of Bakit (pronounced ‘bah-kit’), the evolution of Conference Call (the podcast formally known as Shift Talk) and Shop Tlk (Sara’s retail consulting lovechild with friend Suraiya Nanji).

On this episode I’m joined by Feeding Mama founder Mona Stilwell. What I loved most about sitting down with Mona is hearing about her non-linear professional past and journey into Motherhood. Mona shares how her Mother’s gift of a postpartum chef gave her more than sustenance and describes how she then took a Chinese tradition and created a meaningful way to nourish new parents. *Note I nearly ended the interview early, but Mona kindly reminded me that we had only talked off air about how she became a Mother. Keep listening past the 45 min marker because its exceptionally moving. * @feedingmama *CHECK OUT MY PATREON

Jeremy's stint in prison shaped him into who he is today. Literally and figuratively. @jvmovement604 *CHECK OUT MY PATREON Ben Owens Photography
