    Ep. 16: Lainey Gossip in the house!

    Rosie’s surprisingly ignorant of celebrity news. So, of course, we called the inimitable celebrity and entertainment columnist Lainey Gossip. Rape narratives are prominent at this year’s just-ended TIFF. Does it matter that they’ve been directed by men? How well has the media done reporting on rape allegations against Nate Parker? And Jennifer Aniston rides her horse a little too high.

    On the show: Lainey Gossip, aka Elaine Lui, celebrity and entertainment columnist and co-host of CTV’s the Social.

    Ep 15: Sexist sex testing at the Olympics (with Kate Allen)

    From genital examinations, to chromosome and testosterone testing, amature sports bodies have been obsessed with stopping supposed men from competing in women’s sports. But guess what: They’ve never found one. All they’ve found are the great plethora of biological sex expressions in the human body. Oh, and destroyed a bunch of women’s athletic careers and reputations.

    On the show:
    Kate Allen, science and technology reporter at the Toronto Star

    Ep. 14: A sex education about-face (with Angela Kennedy)

    Angela Kennedy was an outspoken critic of Ontario’s sex education curriculum, until she wasn’t. The shift was months in the making, but stemmed from the revelation that one of her sons had experienced sexual abuse as a child. How should we think about people whose political views change from personal experience? What’s the risk in changing your mind? And did her fellow Catholics react? Hint: In a very surprising way.

    On the show:
    Angela Kennedy, chair of the Toronto Catholic School Board, long-time trustee and registered nurse

    After decades of family activism and pressure from Indigenous groups and politicians, the federal government has finally launched the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls inquiry. How did we get here? What do we stand to gain, and will the inquiry be far-reaching enough?
