On a new episode of his popular Youtube series Left Politics, History and Culture academic Christo Aivalis explains why Elections Canada decision to classify climate change discourse as partisan is absurd.

Professor Shane Gunster joins Team Advantage to discuss his recent piece in the CCPA Monitor, "Extractive populism and the future of Canada," and unpacks the loaded concepts the fossil fuel industry has mobilized to garner political support and legitimacy.

On this week's episode of Out of Left Field, the Victoria socialists welcome journalist and author Leigh Phillips to explore the origins of eco-fascism and the interconnections between modern day environmentalism, de-growth / austerity economics and radical, neo-Malthusian politics.

On episode 55, host Rob Rousseau weighs in on David Koch's tragic death in an (alleged) most dangerous game gone wrong, explores why the Amazon is on fire but business is booming and welcomes Vice writer Mack Lamoureux to talk about his coverage of the rise of the Canadian far right, the increasingly obvious rhetorical crossover between extremists and mainstream conservative politicians & journalists and much more.
