White power chatrooms, fascist memes and Jordan Pederson lectures as extremist recruitment tools: on episode 91 of Ricochet's award-winning Unpacking the News podcast, journalists Shannon Carranco and Jon Milton join host Andre Goulet and associate producer Savanna Craig to explore their recent Globe and Mail report investigating Canada’s extremely online white power movement.
