Diverse perspectives are scarce in mainstream media, so we created a platform for our words to be heard. You'll laugh, you'll reflect, you may even disagree at times but you'll always be engaged! Words are powerful, and these conversations are long overdue.
Robbers Wireless and Internet
In today's episode, we get a window into what it's like being in cottage country as a PoC (start-13:39); reflect on African parenting styles (13:40-25:26); and discuss the Rogers outage and what it says competition -or lack thereof- in Canada (25:26-end).
New Inflation, Who Dis?
On this week's episode, we are joined again by special guest, Reh Lakhani a.k.a. the Wolf of Bay Street. We chat with Reh about rising inflation, its key drivers, and how central bankers are responding to this issue. We also reflect on the links between capitalism and inequality, and end the episode sharing some resources you can use to better understand what's going on in the markets.

In this week's episode, we're joined by special guest Iyad Abdi, currently a Masters of Science student in Urban Planning and Policy Design at Politecnico di Milano, and also a graduate of NYU with a Bachelors in Urban Design.
We sit down with Iyad to chat about the infamous slap heard around the world and try to answer the question on everyone's mind, what was Willard Smith thinking? (00:00-14:54) Then for our main topic, we get into all things urban planning and urban design including: what inspired Iyad to get into the field, how bias impacts policy choice, NIMBYism and what it takes to solve the emerging challenges of tomorrow's cities (14:55-end).
Tune in for a great discussion!
