    Community Is the Name of the Game

    While online communities have existed since the earliest days of the Internet, the COVID-19 pandemic has, at least temporarily, made the digital world the only place where community can safely gather. But how can we ensure that these communities are inclusive and safe for all? In the second episode of What Do We Do Tomorrow?, host Hannah Sung speaks with the Video Game Professor, Dr. Kris Alexander of Ryerson University, about the online communities formed around video games, and streaming platforms like Twitch. He explains how video games can connect us, educate us, and maybe even save us.

    Democracy in Crisis

    Democracy in Crisis

    Voting is a cornerstone of our democracy. So why don’t many of us do it? Especially now when the stakes are higher than ever. In the first episode of What Do We Do Tomorrow?, host Hannah Sung asks questions on the history of enfranchisement, voter suppression, and how we can get more people to the polls. She speaks first with Judith Goldstein, Founder and Executive Director of Humanity in Action, who breaks down how voter suppression isn't new -- it's the norm. How do we fix this? Hannah then speaks with Mikelle Sasakamoose, who helps run BC First Nations Rock The Vote, a Facebook group that has built a community around sharing information about elections and Indigenous issues in Canadian politics.
