    Nardwuar the Human Serviette is one of the biggest media personalities to come out of Canada. He’s a prolific interviewer with a knack for shocking his guests by bringing up little-known personal details about their lives during interviews. He’s an absurd figure beloved by hip hop stars. He’s a punk from Vancouver who has 100s of millions of views on YouTube but still does his weekly community radio show. This is his story as told by the people who know him best.

    Last week’s House Finance Committee hearings into the WE Charity scandal yielded few new insights into why the government awarded it a massive sole-source contract or how the organization itself operates. Thankfully, the press has continued to turn up information that MPs have not.
    Craig Silverman, media editor at BuzzFeed News, joins us to unpack the latest revelations about efforts to burnish WE Charity’s online image while burying Canadaland’s reporting. 
    Then, Mark Blumberg, a lawyer specializing in non-profits and charities, tells us how he’s never seen anything quite like WE before.

I have learned so much about this massacre, over the last couple of days. Had no idea.
Will be subscribing to the Halifax Examiner to keep myself up to date on this heartbreaking story. Let’s hope we get to the truth.

I’m paying the monthly $5. How do I get rid of the ads?
The ads are not terrible but it would save me a bit of time.
Thank you.
