    A History of Canada's Reproductive Justice Struggle (Victor's Children ep19)

    A History of Canada's Reproductive Justice Struggle (Victor's Children ep19)

    The overturning of Roe v Wade in the US puts the spotlight back on the politics of abortion. David speaks with Jocelyn Piercy about the movement organizing that eventually led to the decriminalization of abortion in so-called Canada and defeated the Mulroney Tory government's attempt to recriminalize it, and in particular the work of the Ontario Coalition for Abortion Clinics. This experience is relevant today as we face emboldened right-wing forces intent on replacing liberal sexual and gender rights with its reactionary sexual hegemony.

    The Legacy of The Kids in the Hall (Sweater Weather ep21)

    The Legacy of The Kids in the Hall (Sweater Weather ep21)

    Inspired by the recently released sixth season of The Kids in the Hall, Naomi and Aaron talk about this legendary sketch comedy show (1988-1995). We discuss the Kids' paths to becoming comic actors, and how the show was too dark for us to appreciate when we were kids ourselves. We breakdown some of their most notorious sketches, including Cabbage Head and The Chicken Lady, and pay special attention to their unfairly maligned feature film, Brain Candy (1996), which is actually very good! Finally, we consider the dangers of cultural nostalgia and decide that we'll do it anyway.

    This is the free 34-minute version of the episode. To access the full 79-minute version, subscribe to the show on Pateron at https://www.patreon.com/canadiansweater
