Guest: Dr. Eric Kam, Professor of Macroeconomics, Monetary Economics, International Monetary Economics, Implications of Monetary Growth, with Toronto Metropolitan University - Whenever humanity has made efforts to get to the moon, there's always some sort of buzz that gets generated, this time seems to be different. Why hasn't anyone pointed out that we've sent a rocket to the moon, passing just over 100km from the lunar surface? That's incredible! Guest: Dr. Jesse Rogerson, Assistant Professor of Science and Technology Studies in Natural Science with York University - A major player in the history of the NHL has passed away.

Canada is looking to expand its requirements for who's eligible for MAiD but is this needed, especially when you consider that Canada is number 1 in terms of MAiD? With the current rate of patients who are opting for and being granted MAiD, does that mean, would opening it up to the mentally ill prove to be a beneficial move? What about children? Guest: Trudo Lemmens, Professor, Scholl Chair in Health Law and Policy, University of Toronto

Guest: Greg Sutton, Master Coach, Men & Women's Soccer, Concordia University; Former Professional Soccer Player - Canada is looking to expand its requirements for who's eligible for MAiD.

The Brightest Conversation in Hamilton Radio pairs perfectly with Lorraine Somerfeld!

Guest: Lorraine Sommerfeld, Auto Writer with Post Media, Author of the Motherlode column in the Hamilton Spec and Host of the Lemon Aid Car Show on RogersTV
Is there a curse on all of Buffalo's sports teams? It seems like they haven't been able to catch a break for the longest team and this year was looking like it could be the one for the Bills until their superstar quarterback got injured. While this hasn't completely wiped their chances right off the board, it has certainly followed in the footsteps of many other unfortunate events of years and teams past. What's going on with Buffalo? Guest: Steve Foxcroft, Sports Commentator, NFL Chain Gang Member & Vice President, Fluke Transport - The CFL's Grey Cup championship game garners a lot of attention from Canadians and despite CFL football identifying heavily with all things Canadian (after all it is called the Canadian Football League) why isn't the performing artist for the half-time show a Canadian musician? Guest: Eric Alper, Publicist and Music Commentator

Guest: Bruce Garrioch, Columnist, Ottawa Sun - Becoming a city councilor comes with a lot of work that a new member might not always be aware of. Scott welcomes one of Hamilton's new incoming councilors who's currently in the process of being brought up to speed before getting sworn in.

Guest: Dr. Laura Dawson, Executive Director, Future Border Coalition - Jewelry can be made out of many different materials but this lady has discovered you can make it out of more than just metal and gems. Try something more along the lines of breast milk or semen! Guest: Amanda Booth, Artist & Founder, Trinkets by Amanda Booth - While many of us don't love paying taxes, it's understood why we do. Unfortunately, it seems our tax dollars aren't always being funneled towards healthcare, education and roads. Lots of bonuses are being paid out to crown corporations and their employees sometimes regardless of performance! We want our taxes to pave roads and teach kids not line the pockets of people who are already excellently paid. Guest: Franco Terrazzano, Federal Director, Canadian Taxpayers Federation
According to recent information from the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, Canada's 2019 federal election saw China covertly fund candidates associated with the Chinese Communist Party, place employees in the offices of MPs with the intent of influencing policy to benefit China and more.

Scott welcomes Elliot Tepper to the show to talk about this incursion. Guest: Dr. Elliot Tepper, Emeritus Professor, Political Science, Carleton University - Should a sports team hire someone who was a bully when they were 14?

It's all coming up on this week's edition of Sports Talk with Don Robertson. Guest: Don Robertson, Head Coach & Owner, Dundas Real McCoys & Broker of Record, ComChoice Realty
Last year around this time, the people behind Hamilton Day had brought it back after a long time without it. Now we hear it's returning this year as well, possibly becoming an annual tradition going forward. Chrystia Freeland, the Finance Minister gave her mini-budget. The good news: the federal government brought in revenues of roughly $40 BILLION more than what was projected (though most of the reason might be because of inflation). The Bad News (depending on who you ask): is sounds like the Federal govenrment might pour this right back into the market, which seems to have been the cause of our inflation problem. We talk to Dr Ian Lee more about this. The CFL announced their All-Stars list... SYKE! They announced that there was a msitake with how the list was put together, so the "All-Stars" are not All-Stars anymore.
Some people - maybe because they haven't lived here all their live - are now adults who have NEVER experienced Halloween. A piece at The Spec: "I’m 27 years old and have never been trick or treating" by Spec Reporter Beatriz Baleeiro. She's going out trick-or-treating tonight for the first time. One week ago, we were talking about the election as the votes were coming in. One week later, we see the electoral map of Hamilton, showing where votes from various polling stations went for Mayor. What we see is a stark image of our city. Russ Powers joins us, soon-to-be out-going councilor for ward 5. It's Monday, which means we sit down with Don Robertson once again for Sports talk.
On this edition of The Scott Radley Show Podcast, we are joined for the Brightest Conversation in Hamilton Radio by Graeme Mackay. The outstanding editorial cartoonist for the Hamilton Spectator. We’re going to be talking about the local election, Andrea Horwath, drawing, art, free speech, and if a Prince throw his family under the bus in a memoire? Lots more on The Scott Radley Show Podcast.
Less than 72 hours after the Hamilton election was finalized (an election that was meant to change everything, get rid of the division), Councilors are already taking shots at other Hamilton politicians, including one open letter saying they will not talk to the Hamilton Spectator because of a police story that was covered, claiming it was racist. Sports talk with Bubba O'Neil! We're hearing Aaron Judge may get a contract for 10 years $500 million judge! If you own a baseball team and a few billion dollars, would you sign Aaron Judge for $500 million?
We've talked about it a couple of times this year because it keeps happening. Analysts and "experts" keep raising interests and ringing alarm bells. And yet it keeps happening! Which might mean that the alarm bells don't need to be rung, or it might mean that there will come a day where if you cry wolf enough times a wolf might appear. IPSOS did a poll about Hockey Culture. 6 in 10 Canadians say they believe there is a problem with Hockey Culture. Is that the case? Is it worse than it use to be?
