A podcast about the things we believe to be true but cannot say, by Jonathan Kay and Dr. Debra Soh

    The Family Business with Barbara Kay

    The Family Business with Barbara Kay

    Wrongspeak hits pause as we say goodbye to Debra, and Jon interviews his mother Barbara Kay, columnist with Canada's National Post, for the first time. They discuss classical liberalism, Jewish intellectualism and, for the trollbait pièce de résistance, we find out if one Kay benefited from the other's nepotism.

    Thank you to Dr. Debra Soh for her invaluable contribution to our first series of episodes and to our producers at TNKR Media. You can reach us on Facebook, Twitter or Gmail @wrongspeak.
