On episode 99 of the Montreal-based Unpacking the News journalist James Wilt joins host Andre Goulet to discuss his recent piece in Canadian Dimension exploring the casual cruelty of a series of major Manitoba PC policies initiatives, including service closures, funding cuts, privatizations and union-busting, that have fallen under the radar. Plus: the origins of the collapse in support for the Manitoba NDP and what it tells us about the decline of the federal party as we stare into the abyss of 10/21 election. Listen to "Manitoba Election a Referendum on Austerity" on Spreaker. On episode 57 of 49th Parahell, host Rob Rousseau is joined by investigative documentarian Abby Martin (The Empire Files) to talk about her new film 'Gaza Fights for Freedom', the Great March of Return and the ongoing human rights disaster being carried out by the Israeli government. Plus, Rob reflects on Joe Biden's brain-liquifying climate townhall performance, Trump's insane Alabama fixation and Boris Johnson's unbelievably terrible start as UK Prime Minister.

On a new episode of his popular Youtube series Left Politics, History and Culture, Kingston-based academic Christo Aivalis discusses the surprising claims of the highest profile of the 6 New Brunswick NDP members who defected to the Green Party last week. What case does ex-NDP national executive member Jonathan Richardson have for suggesting that New Brunswickers were too discriminatory against Jagmeet Singh?
