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
As the Wrongspeak podcast hits pause and we say goodbye to Debra, Jon interviews his mother Barbara Kay for the first time. Barbara is a columnist with Canada's National Post and a wrongspeaker extraordinaire. They discuss their visions of classical liberalism, how Quebec nationalism gave Barbara "a taste for polemics," Jewish intellectualism and multiculturalism; Jon also calls out Barbara's antifeminism 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.

Such a Shanda with Naftuli Moster

Transparency Evangelism with Minds CEO Bill Ottman
Founded in 2015, Minds is a niche social platform that uses an open-source software model, allowing community members to express themselves with little fear of censorship and reward each other for popular content. Jon recently spoke with co-founder Bill Ottman in New York City about his techno-utopianism and why censorship is undermining social networks.
Interviews in the real world
How refreshing to hear from people with actual experience of the issues rather than self anointed activists. Well worth listening to and considering points of view that may not be your own but are well argued and backed up by fact.
A much needed Podcast
I’m a huge fan of Debra Soh and the Wrongspeak Podcast. Closing down speech we disagree with is one of the major issues of this generation and the team at Wrongspeak are bravely pushing back.
Informative, interesting, balanced
This podcast is a breath of fresh air in our current political environment. Thank you for being brave enough to speak the facts on some controversial topics. Can’t wait for series 2!
