    Sh*tty Cities

    Cities and cars and a climate crisis, oh my! For the past 70 years, urban design in Canada has been centred around the car. Cities have started making changes, but are they doing enough to meet Canada’s climate goals?

    Featured in this episode: Dr. Edda Bild, postdoctoral fellow at McGill University and lead soundscape researcher for Sounds in the City. Jason Slaughter, creator of the YouTube channel Not Just Bikes. Brent Toderian, city planner and urbanist at TODERIAN UrbanWORKS.

    Correction: A previous edition said that British Columbia was the only province to offer rebates on electric bikes. In fact, BC, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and the Yukon offer rebates on the purchase of electric bikes.

    We regret the error.

    The Interrogation Of Jesse Brown

    The Interrogation Of Jesse Brown

    Jesse Brown might think himself quite the question master, but today the tables have turned and our guest host, the Jonathan Torrens, investigates the inner workings of this show's host. Is it possible to be too cynical?  

    Featured in this episode: Jonathan Torrens, actor, performer and writer best known for his beef with Jesse Brown and hosting shows like Street Cents, Jonovision and his role in Trailer Park Boys; Jesse Brown, early guest on Jonovision (and, I guess, the publisher of the Canadaland podcast network).

Great to have Jesse back

If Canadaland was designed to deliver the same impact and critical eye on Canada's media landscape, as Jesse's earlier show, SearchEngine, did for technology and the Internet, then it gets an A for effort. Keep up the great work Jesse!
