    (Short Cuts) Pierre World Order

    The many, many opinion pieces on why Pierre Poilievre shouldn't fire the head of the Bank of Canada. And why some Canadians insist on bragging about how we're better than America while ignoring the hate being brewed here. Ryan Thorpe co-hosts.

    Medusa

    Medusa

    Operation Medusa has become the most celebrated battle in recent Canadian history. It was hailed as a stroke of military genius that may have vanquished the Taliban once and for all.

    But the soldiers and commanders who were on the ground in 2006 have a different story to tell. A rushed battle. Flawed intelligence. And generals putting political considerations ahead of Canadian lives.

    And even though Canada had defeated the Taliban on the battlefield, that didn’t mean they were winning the war.

    Featured in this episode: Cpl. Sean Teal, Canadian Armed Forces; Bruce Moncur, veterans advocate and former reservist; Lt.-Gen. Omer Lavoie, Canadian Armed Forces; Adnan R. Khan, journalist and contributing editor at Maclean's; Eugene Lang, fellow at the Canadian Global Affairs Institute

    (Détours) La plus belle langue (après le cri)

    Des chefs de plusieurs nations autochtones s’opposent à l’adoption de la loi 96 au Québec, une loi qui, parmi d’autres conséquences, aura un impact sur les personnes nécessitant des services publics dans une langue autre que le français. Et est-ce qu’il y a une différence entre la façon dont les médias francophones et anglophones couvrent la course à la chefferie du Parti conservateur ? Emilie Nicolas anime le tout premier épisode de Détours avec Romeo Saganash.

    English: Leaders from several Indigenous nations oppose the adoption of Bill 96 in Quebec, a law that, among other consequences, will have an impact on people requiring public services in a language other than French. And is there a difference between the way the French and English media are covering the Conservative leadership race? Emilie Nicolas hosts the very first episode of Détours with Romeo Saganash.

    (Short Cuts) The Last Hoser

    The canucksploitation is egregious in Mike Myer's new Netflix show the Pentaverate. And the chairman of Post Media absolutely had to write an opinion piece in the National Post defending Patrick Brown. Jesse's back in the saddle and Mel Woods co-hosts.

    BONUS: What Happened With CANADALANDBACK?

    Here's why the show is on hold and what the plan is going forward.

    Abortion Rights In Canada Didn’t Come Easy

    Abortion Rights In Canada Didn’t Come Easy

    With the seemingly imminent repeal of Roe v. Wade in the United States, it's time to refamiliarize ourselves with Canada's long fought history for abortion access. And explore how that story is anything but ancient history, with one provincial ban being overturned as recently as four years ago.  Today's episode features just a few of the people who have been on the frontlines of that fight as well as a historian who studies nothing but reproductive justice.  

    Featured in this episode: Christabelle Sethna, professor in the Feminist and Gender Studies Faculty of Social Sciences University of Ottawa; Deb Miller, retired family lawyer and abortion access advocate; Colleen MacQuarrie, professor of psychology at the University of Prince Edward Island and abortion access advocate; Autumn Reinhardt-Simpson, PhD candidate at the University of Alberta and abortion doula.

Great journalism

I learn so much from this podcast. I may be from the United States but I don’t hear news like this. It would be awesome to have an equivalent to this in the United States too.

Excellent

American listener, but the journalistic integrity and quality content provided by Jesse and the rest of the crew at Canadaland are quite remarkable. Just started my membership today. Keep up the good work, folks!

Keep up the French episodes!

Love the French language podcast episodes. As a Canadian expat who doesn’t hear French as much as I used to, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I was able to follow. Great having a non corporate bilingual source of Canadian news
